I will never stay at any other hotel in NYC! We were here to celebrate my "special" birthday and Elysee made it perfect. The room, the location, the caring staff...and this was beyond doubt the quietest NYC hotel we have ever stayed at. I was concerned because our room was right next to the elevator, but never heard a sound.

Room Tip: Request a "quiet" room.

First trip to NY to finally see the sights, did some research on Trip Advisor to find a hotel and was not disappointed. I didn't have anything to worry about Wonderful breakfast spread from 7 to 10 a.m. during the week and the folks taking care of keeping the room well stocked were wonderful. They would clean up the area immediately upon someone leaving so you never sat with dirty dishes in front of you. This room is also available from 5 to 8 in the evening for cheeses, crackers, fruit and wine which was wonderful before going out to dinner. Great place, good location, wonderful staff . What more could you want.

Room Tip: Stayed on the 14th floor and never heard any noise.

The hotel is in traditional french style and is on a small scale. The room was OK - a rather strange layout with a kitchenette and passageway before reaching the bedroom however it felt private. The reception staff were helpful. The Monkey Bar is busy and atmospheric.
The lounge in the hotel is relaxing, the evening wine is a good way to meet fellow guests while the continental breakfast is convenient and adequate. A good base for exploring NYC and an escape from the madness at the end of the day. Recommended for those who would prefer something different and not looking for a totally American hotel experience.

Room Tip: The rooms at the back are quiet but darker and overlooking pipes and walls. The front rooms are brig...

This was my first trip to NYC and I stayed at the best hotel ever! Thanks to previous recommendations by Trip Advisor members, my husband and I and our friends, decided to stay here. All I can say is when we return to NYC, we will only stay here.

The service from every member of the hotel was impeccable. The front desk staff, the concierge, the doorman, the cleaning staff, and especially the staff in the club room, were consistently helpful, friendly, and were always eager to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I've traveled to London, Paris, Venice, and many places in the U.S. and in NO OTHER hotel, were we treated as well as we were here.

We loved the amenities in the Club Room: fresh coffee in warmed mugs, fresh juices, bagels, croissants, cereals, fresh fruits, hard-boiled eggs in the mornings and complimentary wines, prosecco, and hors d'ouvres in the evenings.

We stayed in a lovely Junior Suite that had a wonderful sitting area and plenty of closet space and luxurious, top-notch bath toiletries,

This hotel is nicely located in Upper Midtown, It was a great base for whatever we decided to do each day. I especially loved the shopping and sight-seeing.

Although we did not eat in the Monkey Bar restaurant, we did enjoy the bar. This is a great bar with a fun and lively atmosphere with great the drinks and wonderful bar staff.

If I could give a higher recommendation, I would. Do not hesitate to stay here - whether business or pleasure.

Room Tip: Junior Suites are spacious and are located on higher floors so are quieter.

Back for the 5th or 6th time over two decades, this time for five days, the Elysee is great for its location, nice size rooms, wonderful 2nd floor wine and breakfast lounge and warmth. But little things keep the Elysee from being way better. Thanks for the small bottles of water, but no thanks for the $1.50 charge to replace them on a $400 nightly bill. Thanks for the warm greetings on arrival, but no thanks for ignoring our repeated loyalty. Who needs a favorite uncle who doesn't remember the connection? Frankly, as a place to be in midtown, the Elysee is fine enough, but they seem to have lost the personal touch that I remember and that makes any hotel a little special.
