Nice upper west side hotel

My husband and I spent two nights here while I attended a conference just across the park. I got a very reasonable (prepaid) deal, especially reasonable considering that this hotel is much nicer than many NYC hotels. I prefer not to stay in midtown if I don't have to, and this hotel has the advantage of being right on the B/C lines as well as the M79 crosstown bus. Plus it's right on Central Park West. The room was clean, comfortable, spacious, and turning the fan on served as excellent white noise throughout the night. There's a (small) workout room which is always a plus.

Stop off in New York

We visited New York for 4 nights in September and were booked into this hotel as part of a Virgin Holiday package. The hotel, although a little dated, was fit for purpose as we wanted to stay near Central Park, the touring bus route and away from the bustle of the centre of Manlhattan. The room overlooked a central well and was very clean. We were not booked in for breakfast and the hotel although they had a breakfast room did not mention this us. The bar was a pleasant place to get a drink and had we not been out and about so much around the city we would have had a meal in their restaurant which we were told was a good place to eat. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and if you have not booked any tours before you arrive then hotel will gladly organise this for you extremely well.

30th Birthday Trip

We came to New York for my 30th birthday and booked this hotel via last and it did not disappoint. We were upgraded to a junior suite free of charge- we didn't realise until we got to the room.. there was super king bed and a lounge adjoining to the bedroom.. the staff were lovely and always said good morning when we left for the day. I found the upper west side a beautiful place and with the park a 3min walk away it's, in my opinion, my favourite part of New York. A good location for traveling all over the city, the natural history museum is just over the road and the subway station is 3min walk away. We would stay here again.

Perfect for a visit to met museum or Lincoln center

We were in NYC for shows at both Met Museum and Met opera and were very pleased with both the location and the quality of the Excelsior given it's reasonable (for NY) rates. We even got an upgrade to a suite without asking which was lovely.Very clean and nicely appointed with updated fixtures. Staff was helpful and friendly. It's walking distance to major museums- Nat Hist, Met as well as to Lincoln Center. Lots of restaurants nearby- we had a wonderful dinner and the Milling Room.Yes, it's hard to understand charging for wi-Fi I this day and age but at least it was a very nominal amount. I would happily stay here again, especially if attending an event at Lincoln Center.
