“Must be experienced”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

I loved everything about this hotel. It was not just somewhere to stay at the end of a busy day, it was a beautiful experience.
The decor of the rooms was romantic and cute and although the rooms were not large they were very comfortable with a nice sitting area and the bathrooms had all the shelving space you need. The beds were very comfortable. We were on the 9th floor to the front of the hotel and we had no problem with noise. From the corridor you could hear people in their rooms so don't choose a room by the elevator.
The lounge area where breakfast and evening cocktails ( all complimentary) were served is charming and encourages you to relax. The breakfast items were tastefully displayed and the serving area was always clean. By far the best part of this hotel ( and there are so many good parts) is the staff at breakfast and cocktails. Always friendly, pleasant and helpful. They never appeared to be harassed or tired. Loved having my prosecco and cheese after a day of shopping and sightseeing. I didn't think it would have made such a big impact on me but every evening I could not wait to get back to the hotel and exhale with my glass of prosecco.
And yes, the location was great but that's just a bonus. I am not planning to return to NY soon but I would go just to stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Higher floors furthest away from the elevators

Great, friendly service. Nice rooms. The front desk staff is wonderful. And the support staff is so friendly and accommodating. The hotel is elegant and comfortable, and meticulously clean. The 2nd floor lounge area is where they serve a lovely breakfast and in the afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres.


Room Tip: very nice. The only complaint I've ever had about this hotel, and I've stayed many times, is...

We enjoyed our recent stay for five nights, six days at the Elysee! The location is excellent and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Our suite was spacious, especially for NYC. The room service meals were very good and we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and the wine, cheese and snacks, also complimentary, in the late afternoon. The bedding is also very very good for a hotel -- a firm but not rock hard mattress, lots of great pillows and good sheets and quilts. Housekeeping staff kept the room clean and tidy and provided plenty of towels. The Monkey Bar and restaurant downstairs has a great wine selection and tasty food! Our family would definitely stay at the Eysee again. Kudos!

My partner and I just returned from a 4-night stay from what we consider our NYC pied a terre. This was our 3rd stay and it was better than ever. The hotel staff is unfailingly gracious and helpful. We requested a quiet room and got just that -- a big, lovely, comfortable, and extremely quiet room. We didn't hear a thing during the night -- just blissful peace and quiet. The location is perfect for theater geeks like us. The theater district is an easy 15-minute stroll away. Breakfast is terrific with lots of options to get your day started. And the evening wine service (3 hrs!) is a perfect way to have a light meal before the theater (then go have a late night bite along 9th Ave). Our housekeeper was excellent and very nice. She told us the hotel employees love working there, and I believe her because you can tell the staff takes pride in their work. I booked well in advance and got a great rate through the hotel's own website. We can't imagine staying anywhere else, and we can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Rooms away from the street are very quiet.

This was my second stay in Hotel Elysee (Aug 13) and it was as perfect as my first. Staff is outstanding, facility very clean, comfortable, afternoon happy hour and breakfast with room -- all hard to find in any other NY hotel. The staff checked with me before the visit to help make transport arrangements and looked after my needs during the stay. I will for sure return again.

We have stayed at Hotel Elysee numerous times. It remains a wonderful place to stay for us. The location is really hard to beat with subway stations within only a couple of blocks. We like the Upper East Side as the area really makes you feel like a New Yorker! We love requesting the balcony room! It is larger than a normal room with a coach and tables and also a beautiful chandelier. The views off the balcony are spectacular, especially at night. The wine/cheese reception is a perfect way to either begin your evening or perhaps wind down from a busy day. The staff in there is very professional and friendly (shout out to Wendy in particular). I would say that some variety in the snacks might be nice. We stayed there 8 nights and it would be great to have a different selection occasionally. Breakfast is good also. Pretty standard but a nice stop in the a.m. We love to people watch from the 2nd floor while we have our wine and cheese. Our own small quibble this time was there was some,problem with the cable while we were there. It was out for 3 days out of the 8 that we were there. Not a big deal but it is something nice to unwind with at the end of a busy day. We didn't complain so there was no mention of a possible credit at check out. Still, we love it here very much and will definitely be back next year for our annual trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room well in advance. I believe there are only 4. Our request was granted both tim...
