“Well beyond expectations”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Great location (10 min walk to Central Park, Rockefeller Center and Grand Central Station), large rooms and excellent service and staff.
The top of the top: the wine and cheese time every evening, very nice after a day walking in the cold^^
Great value for money!!!
If you are looking for a small boutique hotel, this one is perfect!

Excellent size room with extra foyer type room upon entrance (a business associate I was traveling with had a solarium!) Great price. The best free cocktail hour I have ever had. Nice continental breakfast. We are already talking about staying here for our next business trip. Excellent, safe location in the heart of mid town with great surrounding restaurants as well.

Nice bedroom, club room on second floor with breakfast, snacks and wine hour. Great midtown location. Terrific value for NYC! I travel to NYC for business quarterly and have always stayed at Loews in 61st. This is a wonderful alternative. The free breakfast is a nice perk for New York.

We booked this hotel because of the reviews on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. We looked for a quiet room and were facilitated by the Hotel. Unfortunately, the extractor fans of the building next door started up at about 5.30am and that was the end of my peaceful sleep!!!
When asked (as we were leaving to look about town),how our room was, we mentioned the noise and we were immediately changed rooms..... to a suite!!!
The original room was fab. had a roof (garden) as a balcony, table, chairs etc.... we thought we had landed in heaven.... that is until we were moved to the suite.
This is the best hotel we have ever stayed in, and can't wait to return. It will take a few years to save up, but we will be back.
The rooms, staff, food, location and anything else you can think of were fantastic. I have worked in the hotel industry myself and I think I can be a good judge.
I have stayed in newer, more expensive and 'higher stars' hotels, but this beats them all hands down... Continue your good work Hotel Elysee....

Great hotel, great location, helpful staff and a great experience. This was a wonderful four days in NY. The hotel really helped make it. The room was excellent for NY...spacious, clean and with excellent facilities for the standard room...The club suits is a great place to have a glass of wine and nibbles at the end of the day, or a wonderful continental breakfast in the morning...Definitely the hotel I will be staying at next time i am in NYC. The only minor issue with the stay, was the woman in the room next door, who wanted to let everyone hear her "passion" late at night. :)

We love this hotel. It is warm, comfortable, and charming. The staff, from the front desk to the doormen, to the cleaning staff and waiters are the friendliest and most helpful people we have met. They phoned us ahead of our arrival to see if we needed help. They remembered talking to us when we arrived. They dealt with our car efficiently. The continental breakfast in the dining room is lovely - lots of newspapers. When I wanted to take some coffee upstairs to our room, they gave me a tray. It's a block and a half from MOMA, and very close to lots we wanted to do. This was our 5th stay in the hotel, and we will be back.

We stayed at Élysée for a birthday weekend, and I cannot say enough good things about this little gem of a hotel. The service is impeccable, the rooms charmingly appointed, the location perfect, and the Monkey Bar (attached to the hotel) is a piece of NYC history. When we arrived, I called the desk regarding the bathroom ( which needed a bit more of a clean-up) and they could not have been more accommodating or apologetic. Also, our room was directly next to the lift, and I had some concerns about noise, but it was actually more quiet than at home. Must be those thick per-war walls! We will definitely return to this wonderful hotel.
