Dear Victoria, Thank you for your lovely comments. The wine & hors d'oeuvres reception is so special. It really does give guests a chance to meet and mingle with each other or keep to themselves if they would rather. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back to New York City in the future! Warm regards, Cheryl Golde

The Elysee is a charming hotel in a fabulous location. The rooms are nicely appointed and comfortable, the staff is welcoming and friendly, and the complimentary breakfast and happy hour are a big bonus. I highly recommend the Elysee.

Centrally located boutique hotel with charm

Posted Jul 3, 2017
Pros: Nice rooms, good front desk staff.
Cons: One or two staff members could have been more accommodating. There also should be more room for toiletries in the bathroom.
Location: Close to Rockefeller Center and easy stroll to Central Park.
Great location close to major attractions. Very comfortable beds, nice breakfast and mostly friendly staff.

Perfect for our anniversary trip!

Posted Jun 25, 2017
Elysee is situated between Park and Madison Avenues in mid-town in walking distance to Broadway Theaters, MoM A, Grand Central, Central Park and numerous fantastic restaurants. The smaller size of the hotel gives a more intimate feel in comparison to the large hotels near Times Square and taking into consideration of Elysee's more famous guests in the past it gives the hotel an aire of sophistication and class. The staff is fantastic and very accommodating. The afternoon wine and cheese in the Club Room provides an opportunity to meet other guests staying at the hotel and a great view to simply watch the people move up and down 54th Street. Make sure you make reservations to eat at the Monkey Bar as well as enjoy their cocktails - the Rohan Duck and Smoked Spaghetti are fantastic! Overall a great stay for our 20th wedding anniversary!
