This hotel has an excellent location. Walking distance to many attractions. The room is lovely and comfortable. The only downside is the noise level. My room was facing 54th street and it is really busy.

This small chain came recommended from an American friend. It did not disappoint. The service was exemplary from start to finish. They kindly upgraded us to a suite as we were on our honeymoon and knowing how nice it is I would pay for the upgrade next time. The morning breakfast was good if a little simple (actual English tea was a nice tough), the wine and the cheese afternoons were a lovely little extra. Rooms were cleaned, turned down for bed and very comfortable. Whilst we loved the country inn style of the hotel the only minor criticism is that the Club Room was very dated and in need of a bit of a spruce.
All in all I would always look to stay here in the future whenever I am in NY.

Room tip: King Suite is very large and comfortable.

At first glance, the interior will seem frozen in time. Some might say “dated.” They would be correct. This just doesn’t seem to matter as you get settled into your room and discover the dozens of amenities and top notch service. While our room could have used fresh wallpaper and carpet, it was clean, spacious and inviting. Lighting was ample and the bathroom was well done. The bed was firm for my preference but they do offer a feather mattress topper, if you would like. The breakfast area was comfortable and all items for the Continental Breakfast were fresh and nicely presented. The best part? Location for the price can’t be beat! When we are in NYC we spend very little time in our hotel so this suited us well. We are planning to return next month.

it is more like staying in someone's home in an outstanding area of Manhattan rather than at a hotel. The entire staff is very helpful - the personnel at the desk, the person who takes your luggage as well as the staff who serve wine and cheese in the afternoon and breakfast in the morning. The hospitality, the ambiance and the service are outstanding. We stay at hotel Elysee every year on our wedding anniversary -- it is a very special place - I highly recommend it. In my opinion the best place to stay in Manhattan
