Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Location is excellent and close to shops, restaurants and Central Park.
The hotel is small compared to most of the others, and this is a definitive plus, the staff is friendly and super efficient.
Morning breakfast is very good even if the space available is not enough when there is a lot of people.
The Monkey Bar is a must for cocktail or quick bite.

The location of the hotel, the quality of the rooms, etc., is excellent.
But what made this hotel the best stays I ever had is the great hospitality from the people at the reception desk, they are always willing to help you with a big smile... thank you!!

This was our second trip to the Hotel Elysee, and once again, found it to be perfect in every way. The room selection was excellent. Cozy and warm and everything you could need in a hotel. This place, is so much more than a hotel. The morning continental breakfast is superb. The evening wine and cheese and snack an excellent touch. I continue to recommend this place to my friends and we all agree, this is the perfect choice for NYC!

Loved staying at Hotel Elysee. The location was great, and close to subway station. The staff was very professional, friendly and helpful. We used a car service the hotel set up for us to and from the airport. Worked out very well for us since there were two couples traveling together. The morning breakfast was very nice and the evening wine and appetizers were great. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Stay on back side of hotel. The front side was a little noisey when garbage was being collected and...

Visited NY over Christmas and stayed at this excellent hotel. This is not your normal large same room type hotel that you could be in any city. The rooms have great character and are well furnished . The club lounge serves continental breakfast and they do cater for those on a gluten free diet. Complementary snacks and wine are also served after 5 in the evening. Great location for most of the attractions and within easy reach of restaurants, 5th Avenue and the subway. The staff are faultless charming and friendly.

A stay at the Elysee is always a highlight of our New York City experience. A small European style hotel conveniently located on 54th St just off Madison Avenue makes for a short walk up Fifth Avenue to shops and museums and across town to Theatre. The complimentary breakfast is beautifully presented by gracious hostesses in a welcoming second floor living room/library setting. This is repeated in the late afternoon with wine, cheese and nibbles for the cocktail hour.
The entire staff works diligently to make your stay special.

Room Tip: 7th floor room 74 was spacious and well appointed even though facing the front which we did not find...
