    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Elysee New York City

    Realistic review for NYC hotel


    This hotel isn't as good as some of the previous reviewers have said, but it certainly is much better than the reviewer from Chicago stated. I've been here twice this year. Most recently December 10-13. Contrary to the Chicago review, the beds have been fine and the heating system is also fine. I don't understand her complaint. The rooms have individual heating/airconditioning units. And the a/c worked in December if the room did get too hot. The pillows aren't that good however. They do only have one elevator, but I felt I only waited an unreasonable amount of time once. The complaint about the lack of inexpensive restaurants in midtown Manhattan is rediculous. Seek and you shall find.

    Very Disappointed


    My husband and I stayed at the Elysee for three nights - November 11-14, 2004. We needed a hotel in midtown since my husband was in town for a conference, we read the reviews for the Elysee and had recently stayed at the Hotel Aria in Prague (same owner) and had loved it so we went ahead and booked a room. Perhaps our expectations were too high or perhaps we should have paid more attention to the woman who complained about the soft mattresses; regardless, we has a miserable stay. Our chief complaints were as follows:

    Lovely boutique hotel with unbeatable location--an oasis in NYC


    We just spent three nights at the Hotel Elysee where we enjoyed a wonderful stay. This small hotel (only 110 rooms) is an oasis in NYC, located on a relatively quiet block of E. 54th Street between Park and Madison. The Elysee offers by far the best price for its location (midtown East, 3 minutes on foot to Rockefeller Center, Saks, Tiffany's, and the new MoMA, 5 minutes on foot to Central Park and Barney's, under 10 minutes on foot to Times Square, 20 minutes on foot to Museum Mile), and is a wonderfully intimate hotel when compared with the huge branded luxury hotels in the vicinity. The rooms are comfortable and cozy, tastefully decorated with European antiques and unique artwork. The lobbies and public areas are filled with beautiful floral arrangements, and the Club Room on the second floors offers guests (and their visitors) a perfect spot to unwind for a few minutes between outings into this sometimes overwhelming city. The immaculate rooms are remarkably quiet with almost no street noise. Windows can be opened for fresh air. Beds are comfortable with soft sheets, although we thought the pillows were a bit too stiff. Each room includes a TV with VCR (complimentary video rental through the hotel), complimentary bottled water, and a welcome bar of Belgian chocolate. When reserving, request a room with a terrace; in addition to a standard-sized hotel bedroom, these rooms have glass-enclosed living areas filled with plants and natural light. Bathrooms are compact, but nicely appointed in marble with excellent showers, super plush towels, and pleasant bath amenities. The hotel offers complimentary continental breakfast each morning, tea, coffee, and cookies throughout the day, and wine and cheese in the evenings. All are served in the comfortable Club Room, where you can lounge in any one of many plush sofas or armchairs. A computer in a small room adjacent to the Club Room is connected to high-speed internet, and guests may use it to check e-mail, etc. Beware misinformation about this hotel in the Fodor's guide; my 2003 Fodor's warns that rooms do not have mini-bars and that there is no room service. Courtesy of some recent updates and rennovations, the rooms do, in fact, have mini-bars, and most also have an additional small refrigerator where guests can keep personal items (if there is not a second fridge and you would like one, the hotel will provide one on request). The Monkey Bar, a local hot spot located off of the hotel lobby, has recently expanded as a full-service restaurant, and room service is available from the restaurant in the afternoons and evenings (not 24 hours). Breakfast can be served in-room for a fee (I think $5 per person--included in many packages). Service is friendly, polite, and efficient. The hotel often has special packages available, so be sure to check the website or ask if calling (some packages, like the one we ended up booking, don't appear on-line; while it often seems the best deals are to be had on-line when booking hotels, this rule doesn't seem to apply to this hotel--I would recommend calling). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Elysee, and would gladly stay there again in the future.

    Best Small Luxury Hotel in New York


    I highly recommend the Hotel Elysee on 54th Street between Park and Madison. You could not ask for a more glamorous or convenient address. The hotel is so charming and the staff is so sweet, gracious and absolutely professional. It is the kind of hotel I seek out in every city, yet so rarely find. They have a wonderful clubroom on the second floor where all day they serve coffee tea and cookies, and in the morning there is a free buffet breakfast. At night they have wine and cheese and you can even bring a guest. Once when they were sold out, they put me at the sister hotel, the Library on 41st and Madison, and that was wonderful too. My cousins like it there because they love books, but there is something about the traditional charm of the Hotel Elysee that suits me perfectly. They have a website with great promotional rates at several different locations -------------

    Very nice stay


    Just came back from a four day trip with my mother and two children, ages 7 and 14. We loved the hotel.

    European ambiance in Midtown Manhattan!


    From the fresh flowers that fill the compact but cozy lobby to the trompe l'oeil paintings that adorn the walls, the Hotel Elysee exudes the inviting Old World ambiance of an intimate European hotel.

    Keep This a Secret


    After reading the reviews here, I tried the Hotel Elysee in May,2004. I loved it! The hotel is quiet and in a great location and the Monkey Bar food was very good. Our room was in the front and we were told it was a renovated / redecorated one. It was comfortable but already showing wear in the Upolstry and carpet. Very clean and a nice size.

    The Breakfast was GREAT and the Afternoon cocktails were even better. Looking forward to another visit soon!

    "Perfect Stay..."


    This hotel was perfect for us in many ways; you'd be smack in the middle of Manhattan & minutes from the rest and relaxation that Central Park offers. It's beautiful & convenient. Within easy traveling distance of most of New York's biggest sights, restaurants, theaters & museums. This is central New York. Its convenience to all of Manhattan, plus proximity to Central Park, Times Square, Rockefeller Center & more. The staff couldn't have been more helpful during our visit and everyone was more than friendly. They provided information about sites to see & events to take part in.

    Parvus sed aptus...


    If you want to go the new york way, go the quality way. Because there is a rite of passage to appreciate New York as a tourist: you have to aim for the best lodging. At the end of a `grueling`New York day, you want COZINESS. This come at a price, no way out of it, but what price for what confort is the $1000 question! Let me tell you, go the Elysée way, the hotel Elysée way.It is amazing how this small hotel (less than 100 rooms) can fill you with a sense of confort and home. It just takes a smiling and relaxed personel, a well appointed 4pm wine and cheese complimentary snack and a wonderfull bedroom to make you feel right at home! Who ever said small is beautifull, as I said Parvus, sed aptus....

    Wonderful Stay


    My children and I (8 year old twins) just returned from a wonderful five-night stay at the Hotel Elysee. We particularly enjoyed the hospitality the hotel staff offered, which included a more-than-adequate complimentary continental breakfast, complimentary tea and cookies from noon to 5:00 p.m., and complimentary wine and cheese from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. The manager even provided a welcome box of Belgian chocolates for each of my children! The room we had was extremely comfortable, and although it had no view, it was so quiet that we never heard any street noise or any of the guests in adjacent rooms. The maids provided twice-daily service, and the room was immaculately clean. For us, the location proved perfect - five blocks from Rockefeller Plaza, six blocks from Central Park, and steps from great shopping and restaurants. We were within walking distance of most of the major attractions we wanted to visit. I'd stay at the Elysee again in a heartbeat! The only downsides, which were no big deal for us, were no in-room coffee maker, a puny hair dryer, and an extremely slow elevator (since we were on the 8th floor, we enjoyed taking the stairs every now and then). We didn't really need concierge services, so I can't comment on that, but I can only assume that they would be excellent.
