Q.What is the smoking policy?
The Hotel Elysee is a smoke free hotel. Guests who wish to smoke must go outdoors. There is a $200 clean up fee for anyone who breaks this policy.
Q.Are pets allowed?
Only service animals are allowed at the Hotel Elysée. If you have a service animal, please advise us at time of reservation. There is a $50 service fee per stay for deep cleaning and as always, guests are liable for any damages to the room. The service animal may not be allowed to be left in the room unaccompanied.
Q.Do I need a credit card to check in?
Guests must provide a credit card to the hotel at time of check in to guarantee the hotel charges. We recommend you do not use a debit card for this. When you arrive and register, we must get authorization approval from your bank or card issuer for the amount equal to the room and taxes due for the stay as well as an additional $50 per day to allow for incidental charges during your stay such as phone service, room service, valet service and more.
A hold may be placed on your card account for the full authorized amount, through your date of check-out and such hold may not be released for 72 hours from the date of check-out or longer at the discretion of your card issuer. Our tip for travelers is whether you stay with us or at any other hotel, please be sure before your stay to secure a credit limit on your card that will comfortably allow for your room and taxes as well as the pre-authorization for incidentals plus all the shopping and activities you’ll want to enjoy in NYC.
Prepaying your stay before you arrive will get you the best rate on our website and will also limit the amount we authorize to just the $50 per day for incidentals. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
