Great hotel in great part of the city

I really enjoyed my stay here. The room was comfortable, the staff was friendly. The location couldn't be beat. Lots of great restaurants around. The main problem was the unreliable internet. I had to sit in the lobby to get internet. I think they were having problems with it, may have just been temporary.

No free Wi-fi but a comfortable stay

Stayed here for a week after a great trip in San Francisco. Arrived at the hotel and asked for an upgrade which we got. A lovely sized room and separate lounge area. Staff were hit and miss. Some were friendly and polite and others didn’t seem to want to be there without a care about the job. No tea or coffee making facilities or complimentary coffee or tea in the morning and no free Wi-fi in the rooms which was disappointing. Hotel was situated in a nice area and close to all landmarks and downtown by foot.

Excellent Location, Good Quality Hotel

The Excelsior is in a GREAT location- walking distance to the MET, to the park, the Museum of Natural History is across the street, and B and C subway lines are on the corner. Our room faced the museum and its greenery - nice. The room wasn't large, but was laid out well and comfortable. The bathroom had all that one needs with nice tile walls and a real porcelain bathtub. The room was spotless and thoroughly cleaned daily. The fitness room was small but had all I needed. Check in was easy and the folks at reception pleasant. My biggest complaint - a charge for room wi-fi; come on, it's 2017, not 2002. I haven't stayed in a hotel that charges for wi-fi, either nationally or internationally in many, many years. For what the hotel charges, they could easily throw in free wi-fi. That being said, I would gladly stay at the Excelsior on my next visit to the big apple.
