Great Location away from the hubbub

Posted Jun 28, 2016
Pros: The second floor lounge was always available with newspapers and refreshments.
Cons: Don't expect a great view from your window...you should be outside exploring the city, anyway.
Location: MoMA, St. Patrick's, Rockefeller Plaza, and of course, Central Park.
Cozy boutique hotel in easy walking distance to everything we were interested in above 42nd Street. Plenty of shopping and restaurant options nearby as well (e.g. Pain Quotidienne around the corner if you're not interested in the breakfast buffet.) We liked that it was on a quiet street and that our room was configured in a way that we never heard other guests walking through the hallway. Perfect for people who are in town NOT to be a tourist, but just visiting and need a well-appointed place to stay.

Nice hotel very well located

Posted Apr 29, 2016
Pros: The breakfast offered. And the spacious room for New York
Cons: The elevator is quite slow. As we were on the fifth floor, we took the stairs
The hotel was nice and friendly. The breakfast was excellent. The staff was friendly and efficient.

Pros: Location. Only location this visit.
Cons: Hotel condition. They have to restore as it used to be not so long ago.
Location: Everything is around. Best mid Manhattan location
I have stayed at the Elysee several times before. It is sad but will not come back. The room condition was disappointing. Wall paper in room # 71 pelling off, A/C not working, no internet connection at the 2nd floor computer. It is unfortunate because the Elysee is so greatly located and it used to be a great small hotel.

Lovely, warm hotel

Posted Apr 10, 2016
Pros: Character and charm.
Cons: Keep the prices in the moderate range year round.
Location: Great location for theatre, shopping and museums - centrally located. Nerai across the street has terrific food.
We love Hotel Elysee! It is a quiet haven in the middle of the city. Well located, charming character and comfortable rooms. The breakfast and wine and cheese service are lovely bonuses. The room on the second floor is so warm and welcoming it feels like a personal living room. We stay at Hotel Elysee whenever we can when in New York.

Best kept secret in mid-town

Posted Apr 1, 2016
We are repeat customers like so many others. It is old school elegance, without room service or a gym on prem. Worth it for everything else.
