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.

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.

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.

“Wonderful find in NYC!” The reviews are right; the Hotel Elysee is a gem of a find in NYC. After four nights at another inner city NYC hotel, we transferred to the Elysee on New Year's Day and are so pleased that we did! What makes this hotel so special? The wonderful front desk staff (absolutely nothing is too much trouble), the spacious rooms, free wifi (not a given in NYC) and the lovely breakfast and afternoon canapés in the Library. The Hotel also provides guests with access to the NYC Sports Club a few blocks away. Located close to 5th Avenue, Central Park and Bloomingdales, the Elysee is also close to multiple metro stations. Our only feedback for the hotel would be that the bed was quite hard. Perhaps some guests like that but it definitely took some getting used to. A softer mattress would have been the perfect stay! Thank you Hotel Elysee for a lovely experience - we will definitely be back!

Such an old quaint hotel! The service was impeccable. So close to Central Park, Trump Tower, Serendipity, and Bloomingdales. The complimentary breakfast, wine and cheese, all day coffee, and free wifi is a traveller's dream! The beds were comfortable and the room immaculate! I would highly recommend this hotel for your next business or pleasure trip!

Lovely little hotel. We visited as tourists and found the Hotel Elysee perfect for our needs. It is very well located in Midtown. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was large with plenty of storage space. We enjoyed the "Clubhouse" where they served a continental breakfast and had free tea and coffee available all day. The Monkey Bar / restaurant downstairs was very good.

Three days in October, and enjoyed it very much. The staff here is outstanding - low key, helpful, welcoming, and thoughtful. We will stay here again, and will recommend it to others. The room is comfortable, clean, and quiet. The lounge is terrific for reading, meeting others, and the snacks are good. Location was very good for us. Hotel Elysee as the backdrop for our three days in Manhattan was close to perfect.

Our stay at Hotel Elysee was outstanding. The staff, service, amenities, and quality of the facility was beyond anything I ever expected. Hotel Elysee has set the standard for excellence. We have stayed at several hotels in the NYC area (at the same price point) and found the amenities that are provided are not as generous and the staff at these other establishments (though good) were not in the same league as Hotel Elysee.

I have to dock them a star for the simple reason they have The Monkey Bar attached to their lobby and haven't asked the staff there to be less pretentious and snobby with hotel visitors. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful, but this is definitely a classy hotel that seems more designed for an older crowd. The bathrooms, used by lobby visitors and The Monkey Bar patrons, are located upstairs in the hotel and around a split-level confusing corner. There's also a living room style lounge above the main lobby that is just for hotel guests.

Hotel Elysée is a nod to older times. Classically decorated and catering to an older crowd, it's easy to imagine this place hopping in the 60s. Think balck and white tile and a staircase covered in velvet. Public spaces are painted as if outdoor murals. Staff is courteous. We didn't stay here but rather popped in to check out the space and grab a bite. It's a place your parents or grandparents would be comfortable but perhaps not the best for young families.
