Little classy midtown hotel

Posted Feb 17, 2017
Pros: Perfectly located for theater, shopping, banking, dining. Has a great lounge with a generous breakfast spread, great coffee, and all the newspapers
Cons: Our shower control needed tightening - time for a little maintenance. Minor issue.
Location: Banking, shopping, dining, theater. Theater is a short walk, and you need the exercise.
We love this place - our favorite NYC hotel. Comfortable and classy, like my mother-in-law's living room.

Dear Lnn, Thank you so much for your feedback and letting the Expedia Community know about your recent experience at the Hotel Elysee. I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed the location of the hotel and that our staff was courteous. I'm sorry to hear the temperature of the room was not to your liking. Each room does have it's own thermostat that you can adjust on your own. Perhaps yours was faulty? If anything like that ever happens in the future, please be sure to let our Front Desk know so we can make sure you are comfortable for your entire stay. Warm regards, Cheryl Golde

European Surprise

Posted Feb 3, 2017
Pros: Location. Complimentary Wifi and Breakfast. Room sizes. Value.
Cons: I liked everything just as it was.
Location: It's NYC - everything is nearby!
Hotel Elysee has old world charm; rooms are spacios, clean and comfortable - a little worn but in a very welcome, lived in sort of way. The Club Room is such a great amenity - reminded me of an oversized parlor room, lots of soft seating tucked in here and there throughout a few open plan rooms. Was not able to take advatage of the happy hour (although I imagine it would be enjoyable) and I did have the breakfast which was quite ample. The location is ideal whether you are headed East or West. Truly enjoyed our stay here and would come back again.

Excellent location!

Posted Jan 12, 2017
The Hotel Elysee was nice and in a great location for our needs. The staff was friendly and the rooms were comfortable and clean. We had hoped to have a better view but were told the majority of the deluxe- double rooms were located at the back of the hotel. Our windows looked directly at an office building and when looking down; at a rooftop. We really like the continental breakfast each morning and the complimentary wine and cheese in the evenings. Overall, we were pleased and will likely return the next time we travel to NY.

Great small traditional hotel. Wonderful staff and incredible location. Also, it is attached to the Monkey Bar which is a well known and high quality bar/restaurant.
