"Nice area, good hotel, but noisy"
The hotel is a nice area is the nice and is confortable. Has a cozy atmosphere and has a good breakfast in the morning. They also have 2 pillow for options. My low review have 2 main reason: 1) I said that we were in the city to celebrate our anniversary and nothing was made or done, nothing even suggested even if I had to pay for - it was not a regular trip, we were celebrating our 5th anniversary there. And second my room was to the street and at 5o clock in the morning of my anniversary night there was a truck taking the garbage making impossible to sleep, no good acoustic isolation in the windows!

"Lovely hotel, great location"
I would definitely stay here again, it was wonderful, that staff was very friendly and helpful. That being said, the hotel itself is in need of some renovation, the insulation in the windows need replacement and a chair in our room needed repair. Other than that minor detail, the guest only lounge on the second floor was great, breakfast was great and the Monkey Bar was very good as well. The hotel has a great location, close to Times Square, Central Park and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

"Exceptional Manhattan retreat"
This hotel completely lived up to its high ratings on Expedia. The hotel staff is welcoming and helpful. The French flavor is charming, and it is lots of fun to be in a hotel where each room is unique and beautifully furnished. I did not count it as a negative that our view was of the building wall across the way because this is typical of Manhattan, and anyone visiting NYC is surely not going to be sitting in their room during the day looking out the window! The room was large, with a lovely, spacious bathroom, very clean and luxuriously comfortable. The piece de resistance is the 2nd floor lounge with an amazing, elegant breakfast buffet. You will not find hot food here, but you will find yogurt, cereal, beautiful fresh fruit, French pastries, bagels, hard boiled eggs, coffee bar, tea, juice, etc. This was more than sufficient to power us through 6 hours of US Open Tennis until it was time for a lunch break! Our weekend was too busy to be back at the hotel for the wine bar in the lounge in the evening, but we look forward to that on future visits.

We simply could not have chosen a better place to stay on our recent trip to NYC. From the friendliness of the staff to the comfort of our room, we were immensely impressed. The comfortable reception room offered all day beverage service and a delightful daily continental breakfast and lovely evening wine and cheese buffet at no additional charge to guests. We will definitely be staying here on our next visit.

"Get A Room at the Back"
The Hotel Elysee is a nice, European style hotel. Unfortunately, it's great location is marred by a popular bar next door. Our room was on the fourth floor right above the noisy music and even noisier customers who were extremely loud as they exited the joint in the wee hours of the morning. Minor nit-picks are a lack of counter space in the bath and the breakfast that is served in the lounge. Eating your cereal while sitting on a sofa and leaning over a coffee table is not the greatest experience. But it is complimentary, so probably shouldn't complain especially in NYC. Good stuff includes comfy bed, great location and very pleasant staff.

"A lovely small hotel in midtown"
It was a very nice experience. I was greeted by name every time I either entered or left the hotel. The room rate included free wifi, breakfast and a happy hour each evening. Unfortunately was not able to make either so can't comment on how they are but very nice to have the option. There is also a wonderful bar and a restaurant ( did not try the latter). I thought that I had left something in the room (which I subsequently found) and called several days later. They checked and got right back to me which was impressive.

"Excellent in every aspect!"
From the moment we stepped into the cozy elegant lobby--of course after having been greeted by two doorman--we knew it would be a positive experience! The front desk could not have been more efficient and friendly, and they helped us through the process of finding just the right restaurant. The clubroom serves all guests a wide variety of teas and coffees all day along with fruit and cookies. The "wine hour" is 3 hours long and boasts white and red wine and champagne accompanied by cheeses, vegies and other assorted nibbles. Continential Breakfast was nearly a full breakfast. All served in a beautiful environment consisting of numerous rooms and alcoves. The beds and bedding were comfortable--and the rooms were clean and welcoming. A wonderful experience and one that I'm sure we will repeat!

The Hotel Elysee is a wonderful hotel smack in the middle of Manhattan. The staff are especially friendly and welcoming; they upgraded us as soon as we checked in. The room was spotless. They offer a large continental breakfast with fresh fruit and cereals and breads and pastries. Even the coffee is okay. Throughout the day this lounge is open and guests can partake of coffee and other food. Then at 5 p.m. they put out a spread with cheese, wine, and nuts, etc. It is near to subway stations and both the Madison Ave and the 5th Ave.buses. We will definitely retutn to te Elysee.

"A Great Boutique Hotel in Midtown"
The Elysee has long been a favorite for business or pleasure visits to mid-Manhattan. Its recent renovation updated the facilities without changing the pleasant, quiet ambience of the hotel. Staff are attentive without being gushy or overbearing. The continental breakfast that is included in the daily rate is ample and interesting and there is coffee, tea, parties, etc. available 24/7 in the second floor lounge. In all, a (predictably) delightful experience.

We loved this Hotel. the location is great, the hotel is lovely in a European, Old-World way. The daily Club Room offerings (breakfast, happy hour, etc) are a lovely touch--staffed with outstanding employees. The only negative of our trip was the street noise in our room at night. The Hotel staff sent up ear plugs and eye masks, which helped, but this is a definite aspect of this hotel's location.

"Hotel Elysee treats you bad if you book on Expedia"
Rich, at front desk said, "you booked your suite through a 3rd party (I pre- paid in full $2,400 for 3 nights and we arrived in early December 2013) so we put a hold on $150 on your Credit card in case you max out your card shopping and don't have any money to pay your bill when you check out." Rich only told me of the "pending charge" after my credit card company sent me an alert of the charge. His coworker, Jordan, stood by agreeing. I asked Rich why he didn't tell me at check in to expect charges before I ever ordered any "incidental" items? Rich said it was company policy NOT to tell, but if any guests ask, then they will tell us. Absolutely NO transparency! We had a terrible room NEXT TO THE ELEVATOR and the view was the pits;and we're not allowed to change. We stayed at Elysee in September and had such a gorgeous king suite with a beautiful view that my wife and I decided to return in Dec. Well, on our last day there, we received a 6:00AM wake up call...ONLY...we did not ask for one!!! We had planned to sleep late that day! Then at check out, Rich tried to charge city tax to my credit card. His coworker kept saying, "it's only $2.50 per night." We showed them our Expedia receipt where it clearly stated, paid in advance for entire stay." So, they backed off! In essence, you'll get Poor service and an undesirable room if book on Expedia or another 3rd party; but excellent service and a lovely view if you pay more and book on the Hotel website.

Response by Hotel Elysee
Dear Bill, We are grateful for the opportunity to provide clarification. All of our guests receive the same level of service and check in procedures regardless of how they book their room. Check-in procedures are nearly universal in hotels. We had the pleasure of welcoming you twice. Your first stay was not pre-paid. Upon check in we authorized your card for room, tax, and $200.00 to cover incidentals. No charge was made, but AMEX took a hold at our request. This visit, you pre-paid room and tax through Expedia. Upon arrival we got approval for $150, for incidentals. Just like your previous stay, AMEX, put a hold on your card; no charge was made. Unused funds would be released upon check-out; however, the institution that issued the card might take a week to release it. I apologize this procedure wasn’t explained to you. When our new agent saw you stayed with us before, he mistakenly thought you understood. Thanks to your feedback, we will ensure everyone understands this practice. Rich explained this not only protects hotels but also travelers. The system of securing a hold has made it easier for guests to avail themselves of an express checkout. I’m sorry about the confusion regarding the tax. In NY there is a $2.00 Occupancy Tax per room per night. Most suites have a $4.00 tax for two rooms; however, the suite you stayed in had a third room, a kitchenette, the law dictates we collect $6.00, rather than $4.00. We will now set $6.00 as a default Occupancy Tax for suites and issue $2.00 refunds at check-out when necessary. We had no idea you were unhappy. We have updated your preferences to your profile for the future. We hope to welcome you back again.

I'd probably walked by this hotel 100 times in the years I lived and worked nearby, but I had never know a single thing about it. Turns out it's a quiet throwback, a calm and restful sanctuary, literally just steps from some of the busiest sidewalks and streets of New York. I found my room comfortable, quiet, well appointed. Neither fancy nor homey, a nice in-between. A perfect base for getting out and about in Midtown, and retreating between meetings or shopping trips.
