We found this hotel after an extensive internet search, and it did not disappoint. Fantastic location, easy walk to Central Park, great shopping, Broadway shows, Radio City Music Hall, etc. The 2nd floor lounge/living room is a real bonus (and money saver)! Complimentary Continental breakfast, wine and cheese reception from 5-8pm and coffee, tea, cookies and fruit all day until midnight. It's kind of like a club level except its available to all guests...and everyone seems to enjoy it. It also offers free access to a computer and printer, in addition to free Wi-Fi in the rooms.

Shopping hint

Check out Uniqlo, around the corner on 5th Ave. Very reasonable casual clothing...in every color.

Great location. Charming breakfast room. Smaller rooms but nice. Bed a little too firm. Not inexpensive.

Nice but probably not a keeper

Would not recommend Mon, Jun 24, 2013
The staff is excellent and the second floor lounge is a highlight with breakfast, snacks and before dinner treats! The biggest negative is the room size and bathroom. There is no counter space and the shower is not great. We like the smaller hotels but I think this was not the best match for us.

Great staff, location and hotel

Would recommend Mon, Jun 17, 2013
This was our first visit to NYC in forever. We loved this location and the hotel. The service was terrific, rooms very comfortable. It has one of the nicest "included" breakfast buffets and wine/cheese hours that I have experienced in a boutique hotel. I would stay there again..just wish it was not so pricey but hey that's NYC.

Perfect stay

Would recommend Mon, Mar 11, 2013
I love the Hotel Elysse in NY. The location is perfect on 54the St and Madison Ave. It is easily accessible to Central Park, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central, etc...The boutique feel and friendliness of all of the staff is refreshing in the city. My favorite thing about the hotel is the library/club room on the 2nd floor. There are snacks available all day, wine and cheese in the early evening, and a delicious breakfast every morning. The atmosphere is nice and cozy with comfortable seating, books, a piano, and a computer available for the guests to use. I can't wait to plan my next trip to NY so I will be able to stay there again.

Money saver

The NY Airporter bus which goes from LaGuardia and Kennedy to Grand Central and the Port Authority is very easy to use and a lot cheaper than taking a taxi...especially for 1 traveler.

great spot, but ask for a quiet room

Charming, older hotel, a little worn in some regards, but clean, upscale, and a great location. Unfortunately there was construction across the street which was very noisy and going on at all hours. My colleagues in rooms that didn't face the street slept well.

Would recommend Mon, Feb 18, 2013
The location is excellent, close to central park, shopping, and museums. The room is very comfortable with elegant design and charming outside private terrace. The included breakfast and cocktail hour are superb. Great food at breakfast, and the cocktail includes unlimited red or white wine or proseco, and delicious hors d'oevres. If not too hungry this can easily suffice as dinner.

It was my first time at this hotel and sure will return on my next visits to NYC. Location could not be better, Besides all other aspects the "continetal" breakfast is held in a very warming atmosphere as well as the "happy Hour" with wine, champagne and hors d'ouvre. Just perfect.
