Lovely Room

We stayed at the Excelsior for three nights and loved the room. We had a sitting area with a sofa and a bedroom separated by French doors. Both were large, spotless and well decorated. The bathroom was lovely - beautiful hand made tiles, great shower and lovely smelling toiletries. Behind the desk staff were very efficient, but not overly welcoming. Good location a block from Central Park and a couple of blocks from Amsterdam where there were lots of choices for breakfast places. Would definitely stay here again next time.

Great location but under renovation now.

We learned to our disappointment that in order to have a room with view rather than wall(though called 'courtyard view) we needed to ask for a standard queen. So for our 3 night stay we had 2 beds and a small sofa/TV area--but view of opposite wall. The location across from Museum of Natural History is near subway, bus, many restaurants, ideal.

Very satisfied

The hotel exceeded my expectations regarding room comfortability and spaciousness. Got a Central Park view room and this added to the experience. WiFi in the room is not included and full breakfast has an extra charge but you won't get this value for the money. The staff was always willing to help. Well located in the Upper West Side. Would certainly come back.

Maybe Yes, Maybe No

Should you stay at the Excelsior Hotel - depends what they offer you. If you get a room at a really great rate and want to be on the upper west side, and they don't put you on the first three or four floors, then it's a great place to stay. We had a clean, quiet and spacious double room on the 12th floor. The room and corridor were rather warm and the air conditioning in the room was flaky (we turned it off), but in spring with outside temperatures around 10 - 15 C it was tolerable (the windows open). No breakfast restaurant facilities the first two days we were there, so the Excelsior does not meet the definition of a "hotel", but the few staff they have on duty are friendly and helpful. Something weird happening on the first few floors (not sure they are run as hotel rooms), so never accept a room on these floors!

Great hotel for NYC

Just stayed here. For the money, a great value. Easy access to the subway. Very happy. Sure the rooms were a little "old", maybe the furniture wasn't perfect, but when you are getting a cheap room in NYC you don't care. It was quiet and it was clean, all I can ask for. Staff was super helpful, in fact I needed to leave a night early and they even got me a refund for my prepaided hotel reservation. I was very grateful for that. Would gladly return in the future.
