Very nice place with wonderful staff

Great location in midtown Manhattan. Close to a lot of places and easy to access via the subway or other public transit. We truly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

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.

Small hotel, great midtown location.

Posted Nov 17, 2016
Pros: Very competent and friendly staff. Love location, adjacency to the Monkey Bar, second floor Club Room with complimentary breakfast and wine/cheese.
Cons: Furnishings on 2nd floor and bedroom could use an update.
Location: Good for midtown shopping, restaurants, walk to Central Park.
Friendly staff, nice "Club Room" for complimentary breakfast and evening wine/cheese. Our suite was clean and spacious. The furnishings are comfortable but could use an update.

Thank you so much for your review! We're so thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the Club Room & the Monkey Bar. We update and reupholster the furniture in our Club Room frequently. Coincidentally, beginning today we will beginning a new rotation to recover our Club Chairs and sofas. Unfortunately, the furniture does get worn quickly do to the popularity of the room. I hope to welcome you back to New York City soon! Warm regards, Cheryl Golde

Nice lounge with complimentary wine each evening.

Posted Oct 13, 2016
Pros: Lounge accessibility and service.
Cons: They need another elevator
Location: Great location upper East side
Helpful staff, great location, excellent staff. The location is just a few blocks South of Central Park and a few blocks North of the theatre district. Its small and intimate, has a European feel about it.

Pros: I liked having the breakfast and afternoon treats in the lounge. It was a relaxing and peaceful way to begin and end the day. The location is ideal!
Location: The location is ideal if you are going to the theater or want to shop in nice stores. We ate at several places that were nearby; they were excellent.
I brought my aunt and uncle who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. The hotel had a bottle of champagne in their room and even gave them a room with a balcony. It was the perfect way to celebrate this special occasion.
