We have been staying at the Elysee since 1997, and visit almost every Thanksgiving weekend. The old-world charm never fades, the people are warm, welcoming and ever helpful, and every detail has been thought of ahead of time. The location is perfect for a midtown vacation, and the superb acommodations can make one feel transported to another place and time. We already are looking forward to our next visit.

Great hotel in heart of Manhattan. Terrific staff, wonderful breakfast with fresh fruit and baked breads. Wine and cheese in the afternoons. Experienced travelers seem to gravitate here. It is our spot in NY.

We have been here several times in the last couple of years and the hotel room was superb. The staff is always friendly and attentive to all our requests. We have family in the area as well and they love this hotel as well.

This is a great, personal feeling place in a great city location. The decor is a bit 1980's country house look but that adds to the cosiness of the place. The rooms are large, clean, well equipped. The service helpful and friendly. The beds are comfortable. Great breakfast with newspapers in what looks like a clubhouse salon. I would definitely return here for another weekend stay. Great value.

Room Tip: Reserve well in advance for best rates

My sister and I were in New York for a special weekend and the Hotel Elysee staff exceeded our expectations, even after reading all of the glowing reviews. They gave us an outstanding room and were always gracious and helpful. Thank you for helping add to a weekend full of wonderful memories!

If you like giant lobbies with hundreds of people milling around, this hotel is not for you!
Just steps off Madison Avenue, this lovely hotel is homey and elegant at the same time. You are greeted by friendly staff each time you go through the front door. Check in was hassle free. The rooms are comfortable and large by New York standards. The second floor is devoted to the comfort of the guests. It consists of several large rooms decorated with comfortable couches, tables and chairs. The main room looks like a large living room in an upscale New York apartment. To the side is a library with more seating and a computer/printer for the use of the guests. There is free wifi throughout the hotel. The continental breakfast is included as are appies and wine at happy hour and beyond. Coffee, tea and cookies are available throughout the day. The beds are divine with good linens and duvets. The perfect hotel to relax in after the hard work of sightseeing and shopping in Manhattan.
This will be my home away from home when in New York.

Room Tip: Rooms are quiet off the street.
