Old fashion hotel. Reasonable price. Breakfast was very wonderful. Room was very big. Good location. But there were old furnitures. Bathroom was too old. Need to renovation I can hear footstep from upstairs.

A great stay in a 20s style hotel with attentive employees. Great options for sleep such as memory foam pillows and toppers!

Staff was great and professional every step of the way. Room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The complimentary wine and cheese each day was a nice touch as well. Centrally located to everything, I would definitely stay here again.

Quietly … I am posting this, because it is a sweet hotel with a wonderful team … they have such a touch and we enjoy our time there. Feels like a home kind of hotel where you know the people from each visit.

Very nice. I felt like I was stepping back into the 1870's. Very cool rooms, with vintage furniture. The cheese and wine at 6-8 is a nice time too!

Our experience at the Hotel Elysee was amazing. I called the front desk on our way to the hotel to inquire about where their garage was, and the concierge informed me all I need to do is park in front and a valet will park the car for me. Talk about service! Check in was smooth, and our room was very clean and spacious. We made a note that we were celebrating our anniversary at the hotel, and one of the concierge, Rob, had a bottle of prosecco waiting with two glasses for us in the room. The attention to detail was amazing. They offered wine and cheese in the sitting room in the late afternoon, which was delicious. Overall I am very impressed and can't wait to come back.

This place is a gem! Small, well located boutique hotel. No 2 rooms are the same. The staff is always looking out for you. And everyone loves the 5-8:00 wine and cheese in the eloquent lounge. Our location of choice when we're visiting the City.

A classy, traditional Midtown Hotel. Clean, comfortable, cozy. Wonderful service. Continental breakfast and wine and cheese in the afternoon a civilized plus. We'll be back, without a doubt.

This is a great hotel! Breakfast is fantastic, and the cheese and wine they have in the end of the day is great. Close to subway and walkjng distance from good stores.

Lovely, friendly and cozy hotel that is well-located in Midtown Manhattan. Spacious, comfortable rooms are nicely decorated. The breakfast and daily wine reception are nice extras. I almost hope this hotel doesn't get too "discovered."

This is the most recommendable hotel I have ever stayed with. The small staff works tirelessly with pride to provide you with everything you need to enjoy your stay in the city. After one week with the Hotel Elysee, I realized that it is one of the best kept secrets in Manhattan. The second story club room which offers up close views of the street below is one of those rare places that you can sit back and relax and watch the craziness below. If you go in the afternoon, the club room will be filled with conversation, laughter, and the clinging of wine glasses. If you are lucky, someone might even sit behind the piano and play a few songs for everyone. In the morning, the club room is full of sleepy travelers filling up on coffee and pastries. The bell-staff seemed to be a very tight knit group. Every other day I would see the same faces behind the desk which granted a comfortable "at home" feeling when I would arrive back at the hotel. Upon arrival, my new wife and I found that the Hotel Elysee had taken extra measures to make sure we had an extraordinary honeymoon. We were so impressed by the old-fashioned generosity and kindness shown to us every day of our stay. Even on the last day, the bellman out front took the initiative of loading our belongings into the town car that was to take us to the airport even though we were still 10 minutes away stuck in traffic trying to get back. If you are a person passing through on business who just wants to stay in any hotel, doesn't want to be cared for by a personable staff, and doesn't want to get to know and share stories with your hotel-mates in the club room, then stay somewhere else! HOWEVER: If you are someone who appreciates the little things, you will not find a hotel that pays attention to detail like the Hotel Elysee. If you are looking to have a memorable stay at a novel hotel, stay at the Hotel Elysee. They take pride in what they do and they will do everything they can to care for you. I am confident that you will be pleasantly surprised.

Each time my family and I stay here we have a lovely time. The employees are wonderful, the rooms interesting, and the location great. The elevator is slow but you can easily take the stairs if you're in a hurry, or wait for a bit in the nice lounge on the second floor.

Old World Charm. Boutique hotel in the heart of Midtown, within walking distance of MOMA, Broadway, great restaurants and shopping. Complimentary breakfast and wonderful happy hour served in a cozy second floor lounge. Lovely, clean hotel rooms, quiet, with comfortable beds. Marble bathrooms. Friendly staff. Nothing pretentious, just right for a few day or week-long stay in New York. Dining Tip: Cellini, an excellent Italian restaurant across the street, serves quick lunches and excellent dinners. Tourist Tip: Take the 2 1/2 hour 'Circle Line' tour to understand the geography and scope of Manhattan island.

Great location for my work. Breakfast and lounge is handy and functional. Rooms need an overhaul, poor location of power points for example. Can be very noisy depending which room you get. No room service maybe an issue for some, although being New York lots of places nearby.

Agreeable boutique hotel with a whiff of French charm. Efficient and helpful staff. Fantastic location. Nice perks, like the daily happy hour with wine and snacks for all guests. Only downside would be the noise.

If anyone is looking for a great deal on hotels you can check it out on HotelRaven. com Booked a room on there and they had the cheapest rates around... The most magnificent room I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. My husband and I stayed in the Presidential Suite and it was everything and more. Elegant decor, beautiful antiques, bright, airy, comfortable...an oasis in midtown Manhattan. I can't imagine there is any other hotel in the city that has luxury rooms of this caliber. The hotel is truly in a class all by itself. The free wine and cheese and breakfast served daily were both lovely. The staff is professional and courteous. The bed was heavenly. The best hotel mattress I've ever slept in. The bathtub is deep with a slanted back for comfortable support. You feel "embraced" by the tub. The robes and slippers provided were a welcomed relief after a soothing bath. I don't know what else to say except that I'm certain any other future hotel stays will pale in comparison to the Hotel Elysse.

Clean rooms, very tiny bathroom though, but all the necessities are there. Very helpful staff and the decor is definitively French which is a nice touch to the overall feel of the hotel. Would stay again!

What a charming and elegant hotel. Our room was quite comfortable and I thought it was very large, considering it was in the city. A great feature is the breakfast and cocktail hour in the club room. The cocktail service is great for people who are going to see a Broadway show and want to eat afterward; we could snack on cheese and crackers, nuts and beverages and that was enough to hold us until late evening. The staff was fantastic! I lost my theater and plane tickets and they helped me get new copies. When we needed a taxi and the doorman couldn't easily find one, he literally ran down the street to hail one, coming back to the hotel riding in the cab! I had read that that the rooms can be noisy; I made sure to ask for a quiet room. The one they provided was like a tomb - more quiet than my Ohio neighborhood!

Really glad we picked the Elysee for our week-long NYC stay. The location was perfect, walking distance to many attractions and easy subway access otherwise. The room was excellent - we had a room with a large balcony and plenty of space. Bed was super comfy. The included breakfast was very nice, and staff were always friendly and attentive.
