“Charmer in excellent mid-town location”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Probably because we were booking 6 nights, they gave us a charming room on the top floor. While not expansive, it was not cramped either and beautifully appointed. Service was top notch. When we forgot to take the "do not disturb" sign off the handle one day, they came in while we were at dinner and replaced the towels and remade the bed without our asking. Breakfast was more than adequate and the buffet was constantly being resupplied. My only negative remark was that the heater was a little loud but not difficult to sleep to.

The location is a wonderful mid-town location equally convenient to east or west side activities. Subway and bus stops are nearby. MOMA is right down the street. It is possible to walk to the Theater District, the UN, Rockefeller Center, and Central Park. While not cheap, the hotel is a gem and a much better value than many NYC hotels previously visited.

Professional service, a comfortable room, excellent location and above all very quiet.
This establishment is well managed in an unobtrusive way and offers quality at every level.
by far the best visit to NYC I have had in many years. I shall return.......

Room Tip: Rooms/ suites to the back side - not towards the street - are phenomenally quiet - the view is not s...

My 17 yr old daughter and I had a wonderful 3 night stay at the Elysee. Loved the european style breakfast and cocktail/snack set up. Only criticisms are tiny bathroom and no mini- fridge in room. I will definitely stay here again.

Spent a week-end in the city which we like to do occasionally. This has been our best experience. Pulled up to the hotel, they took our car and checked us in in about 15minutes. In less than a half hour we were out enjoying the city. The room was nice, the staff was great and the breakfast a wonderful extra. Next time they'll be no need to look elsewhere. We loved it.

The Elysee has the best service and attitude I've ever experienced. At check-in there were 4 employees at the front desk. There were 4 when we checked out so there was never a line. Everyone speaks to you. There was always a doorman at the door. When we needed service, someone arrived in minutes not hours. One rainy evening we arrived back at the hotel completely drenched and freezing. The hotel extended the Club Room hours in order to accommodate us with hot tea and cookies. Their focus seems to be on the convenience of their guests and not the staff. What a novel approach! And it makes all the difference in the world.

Room Tip: We stayed in a superior street side room on the 4th floor. We brought ear plugs but did not need the...
