Wonderful spot for a night out in Manhattan. Spacious, clean and comfortable suites. Excellent complimentary wine and cheese in the evening and delicious breakfast in the morning. Perfect location to all.

We stayed here for a family gathering and we were very impressed.
The staff is friendly, cheerful, and helpful.
The rooms are clean, bright, and nice.
The complementary breakfast is very nice, with great service (and free cappuccinos!).
The Managers reception is inviting and lovely. A great place to regroup and relax after a long day.
We were traveling with our mother who needed to use cabs, we were always able to get one outside the hotel, for us walkers, nothing was too far (time square a bit of a hike but very doable).
I will definitely pick this hotel when returning to New York.

Room Tip: We had a room with a terrace. Lovely

Our stay started with a slight mishap with a restuarant reservation, but the staff put this right quickly.

Apart from that the whole stay was excellent. It is a mark of a good hotel when the Front Desk staff know your name and greet you by it. You can tell that your enjoyment is really important to them.

Our room had been upgraded, which was unexpected as was the champagne and chocolates for my birthday.

The hotel is in an excellent location and great for exploring New York.

The beds were very comfortable and so apart from the time difference we slept well. The room was excellent and you can tell that the staff take a pride in looking after the hotel.

Free wifi throughout the hotel was appreciated as in Europe this still doesn't happen.

The staff were all excellent and the club room is really handy as you can still get a drink even late at night, which is nice.

Thank you every one for a great stay.

For a first time visitor to New York I thought the hotel was excellent

A friend's recommendation brought us to the Hotel Elysee, and I thank her for the suggestion. The excellent proximity in midtown, easy taxis, and quality service made this the best stay in NY I've had for many years. Staff even telephoned me the day prior to arrival to see if there were any arrangements they could make for us. I like the smallness of the hotel and the ease in finding our room which was so comfortably arranged, and the pleasantness of the staff. Valet parking and reasonable rates is also a plus, as my car was brought to the front door upon departure.

We really enjoyed our stay with 9 other couples. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the 2nd floor lounge was a perfect place for our group to gather throughout the day as well as for breakfast and evening cocktails.

The rooms were attractive and well sized for New York. It was an easy walk to the south end of the park as well as the health club that is available for free with a pass from the hotel.

My only complaint was the pedestal sink in the bathroom; putting on makeup and drying hair is awkward without a counter. I don't know if all rooms were this way.

I would definitely stay here again.

What made this hotel for us was the personal touch so lacking in larger hotels. Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly and super-efficient concierges, and we loved the warm greetings we received from all staff on our return to the hotel each day. The elegantly yet comfortably decorated hotel lounge-room, where we breakfasted and relaxed with drinks and snacks each evening after a hectic day out, was a gem (especially with 4 ever-hungry teenage children in tow!). We would have liked some variation in the breakfast menu after 6 nights in the hotel, but the pastries and fruit salad were always fresh and well-presented. Rooms were large, comfortable and beautifully furnished. The location couldn't have been more convenient.

Dear 255100Kathy,

It was a pleasure having you and your family for such a long stay and we remember all of you fondly! I appreciate your comments regarding breakfast and how it might be repetitive after so many days. I have just now arranged for a meeting to discuss what we might do to vary our selection to benefit future guests with extended stays. If you have any ideas, please feel free to e-mail me at john@elyseehotel.com as I would love to hear from you. Again, thank you for your lovely review and we hope on your next visit you can escape the Australian winter and visit us in June!

Sincerely,

John Avina
General Manager

Nine months ago, our opera company began planning a trip to New York. The Hotel Elysee was our first choice. Hope Mangum helped not only helped arrange our accommodations, but also helped book our transportation. It was the easiest hotel I have ever worked with. The hotel is beautiful and perfectly located. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts and snacks in the club room and with freezing temperatures outside, many of our patrons enjoyed socializing. We also dined at the Monkey Bar, which boasted one of the best meals we had on the trip. Thank you Hope and your staff for making our group feel so welcomed. I am sure many of our patrons will be returning soon!
