“Great location, friendly staff and comfortable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

This is the second time we have stayed in this hotel. Last time was in 2010, we loved it so much we came back. We stayed in a standard room, where it was roomy and very clean. The hotel was full as US Open tennis was underway, this was our sole purpose of going back to NY. The staff are very friendly, helpful and chatty, just like 2 years ago. We were glad to hear the wine & cheese nights were still going as this is a good way to sample some of America's wines which we love to do. Breakfast was fantastic, the bagels are the best in the world. Fruit salad so fresh and boiling water for your tea or coffee which you do not get everywhere. Our room was facing the street, and in NY style, there was road works going on which they like to do late at night or start very early in the morning, hence our sleep was not the best, but this was no fault of the hotels. The hotel is in a great location, walking distance to all the attractions. As this is our 2nd visit to NY and have been to all the tourist attractions, this time we walked throughout the neighbourhoods which is a great way to get a different vibe for the place. We were very happy to see Bill's (across the road) still there, which we frenquented every night for a night cap. We had dinner there one night and the food was excellent, so do yourself a favour and go there. I would definately recommend this hotel

We stayed here for a week last autumn for our wedding and the hotel was a fantastic choice. We were upgraded to an enormous suite, which was easily the nicest hotel room we've ever seen. The hotel itself is very classy, without being pretentious. There are complementary hors d'oeuvres and wine available on weeknights in the lounge area which we also enjoyed. The hotels location is also hard to fault, being situated just off park avenue is a very nice part of Manhattan. Most impressive though were the staff, who went to every length to ensure that our stay was perfect. They were all very friendly, helpful and courteous and made us feel right at home from the moment we checked in. All in all, its very difficult to find any faults at all with this hotel and we have no hesitation in recommending it. We will definitely return in future.

We were given an upgrade upon arrival, and I couldn't even begin to say how wonderful the staff and the hotel were. The hotel is immaculate, and you really do feel like you have stepped back to a time of luxury, class, and excitement. Just the history of the hotel is enough to make anyone who loves literature content. It was so wonderful to be greeted with Belgian chocolates, the beautiful lounge which provided an excellent breakfast, and the friendly and super efficient staff. We even enjoyed a drink at the Monkey Bar. So much fun. We have stayed in several hotels in New York over the years, but the Hotel Elysee provided so much more. Thank you for making our time and my birthday celebration something we'll never forget!

In a perfect central location between Park and Madison Avenues, the Hotel Elysee is an excellent value. My room was small but generous by New York standards and very tastefully decorated. Continental breakfast in the hotel lounge included, as was a weeknight wine and cheese reception. Very hospitable staff. As I had an informal recital coming up, the concierge even arranged a practice room for me on 8th Ave during my stay! I'd definitely stay again.

We stayed here three nights in February 2012. Check in was easy and efficient. The wine and cheese was taking place upon our arrival and we were able to sit and enjoy a glass of wine after travelling and before setting out to find dinner. The location is good, a 15 minute walk to Times Square and theatres, but lots of shopping and restaurants in the area. Nice quiet location. Bed was comfortable, hotel very clean and staff very pleasant

Room Tip: we were right next to the elevator but once in our room we were unaware-it was very quiet.
