“Value and Charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

This is without question an extremely charming hotel with exceptional service. It is also a very good value depending on the deal but if you stay within $400 or so it's on the short list. Great location for shopping,restaurants and the park. The complimentary wine reception at 5 is a wonderful touch as is the breakfast. The service at all levels is polished and professional. The rooms are definitely showing their age but are still nice. However if you are staying here from April on be forewarned of construction taking place across from hotel on 54th street. The noise is ridiculous!!! I never get too upset because I visit the city frequently but this was exceptional noise. I dont know if the other side of hotel was more serene but do NOT stay in room facing 54th. Didnt bother staff with it so I do not hold them responsible for room but I thought it relevant to future guests for me to post it. Overall a very nice hotel with a French flair in a great "usually serene" location between Park and Lex.

I stayed here for three nights in April with my mother. The location is fantastic: so close to Central Park and major attarctions on the East Side.

The room was cosy and very clean, quiet and comfortable.

The staff were very helpful, and gave speedy assistance when we had need of expert local knowledge and experience with a medical issue, which is always a worry for UK travellers when we leave the certainty and assurance of the free-at-the-point-of-delvery NHS behind.

They also provided exactly what we requested of the room when we booked, without us having to ask again when we checked in, which is a rarity.

A superb hotel with staff who do it great credit.

Just finished a four night stay at the hotel and had an excellent experience. The staff was engaging and helpful. Club room was a real treat with continental breakfast, snacks throughout the day and wine in the evening. Room and bathroom were a good size for NY. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this charming hotel for 5 nights, celebrating my husband's 65th birthday. It was everything we had hoped. Our room, though a bit small, was very comfortable and well equipped. Service was excellent throughout our stay. A bottle of wine and some chocolate awaited my husband for his birthday. The lounge on the second floor is a nice spot to relax, read the papers and have a cup of coffee or tea and cookies, which are available all day long. The continental breakfast included in the price of the room was extensive, fresh and delicious. I highly recommend this hotel for its comfort, service, location and charm.

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.
