I've traveled to NY many times in the last 10 years, both for business and for family holidays, and I've been to several hotels, from 5 to 3 stars. None of them deserved repeating... until I found the Hotel Elysée.
Location is perfect, one block from 5th avenue, nice clean street and surroundings. Room was big for NY standards, bathroom conformable for two, enough closet and drawers, etc. Service was great, always with a smile, any problem fixed very quickly.
The atmosphere is so charming, with romantic touches and very cozy spaces, like the library were we took our breakfast and had a wine before dinner at the fantastic Monkey Bar and Restaurant on the first floor.
All of the above, including breakfast, wifi, wine and hors d'oeuvre, coffee, tea and cookies all day long at a reasonable rate, makes Hotel Elysée the perfect hotel for me.
PS - Two small areas of opportunity: noise isolation for rooms that face the street (though the earplugs helped) and a faster/more reliable wifi.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At the Hotel Elysée, you will find the warmth and charm of a countryside inn right here in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. Like some of the most distinctive bed and breakfasts in the world, the Hotel Elysée offers its guests so much more than is ever expected from a luxury hotel – all included in the nightly rate.
