First Trip to NYC

Room was clean and comfy. Did the job for our 3 night stay. However, no coffee/tea facilities in room, air conditioning was really loud! For the price for the room it would of been nice to have at least continental breakfast included but wasn't prepared to pay $17 each for cooked. Majority of staff were friendly and welcoming, although one member of staff came across rude and abrupt, using bad language at the desk with small children close by. Took $75 security fee which they say will be returned but shows on my statement twice! When questioned the lady behind check in made me feel like I was lying so I had to show her my statement on my phone! Door man was very accommodating and friendly, couldn't do enough for you. Would definitely visit NYC again but as this hotel is quite far out from down town would stay closer into the city

Passed its best

Stayed here first night of an Archers tour, major repairs taking place to the outside with a raw sewage smell lingering. Got bitten when i came out of shower, 3 other guests spotted small black insects in their rooms. Although room was generally clean,for american standards it was small, no coffe or tea making facilities in room. Was about 20 minutes walk from times sq,in a nice semi rural area near to central park, if you walk 1 block you come onto amsterdam ave with a good selection of bars n restraunts.

First stop New York

The first stop of my archers direct touring holiday was New York staying for 4 nights at the excelsior hotel.After a reasonably good flight and a hectic transfer from the airport I arrived at the excelsior hotel at 8:45pm tired and a little bit grumpy but was met by a friendly receptionist who gave me my room card and I made my way to my room on the 14th floor.I didn't really investigate much of the room that night as I went straight to bed but I woke up feeling a bit more normal and had a look around the room which was very nice.Nice comfy bed, room clean and tidy and I couldn't ask for much more really especially as I was going to be out all day.The building is being refurbished on the outside so is covered in scaffolding. I didn't hear any building and construction noise so wasn't sure if it was being worked on at the time I stayed.There is a restaurant on the 2nd floor which serves breakfast but I didn't eat there so I can't comment on it.There was a vending machine in the lobby where you could get hot drinks and another for cold drinks and snacks which was really handy.Overall a nice hotel, close to Central Park west and the natural history museum also some restaurants and shops within walking distance.I'd definitely stay again if I'm ever in New York.

Beautiful and central

The building is beautiful, the bar serves great drinks and the rooms are lovely and clean. My view of the city was pretty great and it's situated directly across the Natural History museum on one side and across central park, a couple of buildings into the block. It's within walking distance of all the major museums and has great restaurants and shops on the area.
