Great Hotel

We booked this hotel as it was near the finish line of the New York Marathon and were not disappointed. The position is outstanding.The rooms were comfortable, clean and well serviced. The staff were friendly and helpful.I would highly recommend staying in this old world charming hotel.

Stayed here several times

My husband and I have stayed at the Excelsior Hotel several times and have had good experiences each time. The hotel offers discount parking in a parking garage right across the street at the Museum of Natural History. Central Park is only a half block walk from the hotel. The rooms and facilities are clean and comfortable. There are shops and restaurants all within walking distance. The hotel has a nice bar and an awesome restaurant right on the premises. It is Calle Ocho, a Latin restaurant. Food was amazing.

Great for a few nights in NY

Loved the location- right opposite central park and was walking distance to subway. Hotel was old but had a great feel about it. Staff were neutral, weren't particularly friendly or mean. I would stay here again. great restaurant attached which did bottomless sangria on a Sunday! Room was very nice.

Can’t do much better for this price

I lived in NYC and have also stayed at several hotels there in this price range. I stayed here for the marathon and would stay here again. It’s on a coveted block across from natural history museum. Hotel validated parking there for $30 per day which can’t be beat. Right next to Central Park, lots of great restaurants, very safe neighborhood. Nice staff. No attitude. No coffee in room but Starbucks across the street and plenty of delis and cafes for your bagel. Easy transport for cabs subway etc. lobby is small but there is a nice restaurant attached Calle Ocho and plenty of other bars nearby. It was an easy experience with no drama. Highly recommend.

Bumped to a different hotel

They overbooked the hotel, but fortunately the booking agent called to alert me and saw that I was booked into a comparable hotel despite the fact that it cost more than my original booking. The booking agent assumed the additional costs which was impressive to say the least. I couldn't have been more pleased with the service I received. They handled everything. Very disappointed, but understand that occasionally these things happen. I would hope it is not something that happens on a routine basis. It is a lovely hotel and was looking forward to staying there once again, but it was not meant to be this time around.
