Hotel Elysee

Had a great room. Clean and spotless. Amenities were excellent, love the shoe buffer, they could have added a mouthwash. Buffet breakfast was very well presented and tasty. Staff wonderful, helpful and hospitable, i.e. Front Desk and wait staff at breakfast. It is a little on the $$$$ side, but a great hotel, in a perfect location.

Across the street is a deli type store and a wine store. You can save a few bucks with snack and a drink if you wish by shopping here.

Perfect stay

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-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

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.

Loved it!

We loved this small hotel--it was an elegant oasis in the midst of the busy city. We were upgraded to a large suite when we checked in. Also, the cocktail hour and continental breakfast were delightful. We would stay there again any time.

Classy and friendly with great extras

A great feature is the Club Room where the hotel provides free continental breakfast (fresh juices, coffee, excellent bagels and breads and hard boiled eggs) as well as free newspapers and computer service. In the evening they provide free wines as well as beautiful cheeses, crackers and fresh fruit. The hotel guests (and visiting friends, etc.) really enjoyed this feature.

Nightlife tip: Not Applicable

Try visiting Clo, a high-tech interactive wine bar in the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle. It is a great way to learn more about wine. Also Bill's piano bar right across from the hotel is a lot of fun.

Great Location - would stay there again!

We were traveling to New York to celebrate New Years in Times Square. I picked the Hotel Elysee because of its location and for intimacy offered by a smaller boutique hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were nicely appointed including a marble bathroom and bathrobes.

I sure wil be back !

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.

Fabulous, great perks

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.

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.
