The perfect hotel for a short break in New YorkPosted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: The location, the friendly staff, the comfortable rooms and the complimentary breakfasts and cheese and wine evenings.
Location: The élysée is located on east 54th street, close to many attractions, theatres, good restaurants and fine shops.
Before our recent trip to New York we had asked several friends who had been there to recommend a hotel. The general consensus was that the hotels they had stayed in were just ok and we could probably find something better. Well we came up Trumps. The élysée was a super little hotel in a great area of New York. Close enough to walk to many of the main sights, including Central Park, Times Square, The Empire State Building, the Rockefeller Centre and many more but away from the noise and bustle. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and there was a lovely relaxing atmosphere in all areas of the hotel. The icing on the cake was the complimentary breakfasts and cheese and wine every evening from 5 - 8 pm. Many of the guests were returning for their second or third visit which says it all. We would definitely stay at the élysée if we were returning to New York and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.

Very nice hotel. Liked the Club Room's hours. I would not want the room outside the elevator.

Nice hotel close to Central Park and 5th Avenue.Posted Jul 7, 2014
Location: Ideally located within walking distance of Central Park, 5th Avenue and Grand Central Station.
Hotel very comfortable and had quiet room on floor 12A (13th) at the back of the hotel. Hotel staff very pleasant and helpful. Continental breakfast and complimentary drinks and snacks were an added bonus. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel or go again myself.

Nice hotel close to everythingPosted Jul 2, 2014
Pros: Location, staff, breakfast, cleanliness
Cons: Outdated decor, small room, no extra amenities
Location: Great location, walking distance to Broadway/Times Square, MoMA, Central Park, Fifth Ave shopping etc.
Hotel is clean, staff are absolutely fantastic. The inclusive breakfast was great (yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, hard-boiled eggs, fruit, pastries etc) and we always found room to sit down even when it was busy. Also enjoyed the week day wine & cheese hour. The drawback was the room (standard king) was way smaller than we expected for the price but I guess that's NYC for you.

From the minute we arrived to the time we left the staff could not do enough to make your stay special. Room was excellent with an inner balcony. Will be staying here again.

great location in ManhattanPosted May 2, 2014
Pros: the staff and location
Cons: update the room decor a little
Location: everything in Manhattan is nearby
We loved the ambiance and staff. I have stayed at their sister property (the Giraffe) and I prefer this hotel even better and the Giraffe is one of my favorites. The breakfast service was great as well as the wine and cheese at night.

Fantastic friendly staffPosted Apr 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. All the staff were very helpful and always had a smile on their faces and couldn't do enough for us which made us feel very much at home. The location was perfect very near to 5th Avenue for shopping and near to Central Park when the weather was nice to stroll around. The amenities at the hotel were first class, always something to eat or drink at any time of day.
