The Excelsior was Excellent!

We stayed here for two nights over Presidents' Day weekend 2017 and had an excellent stay. Our room was clean, comfortable, quiet and spacious (yes, spacious). The location was excellent being right next to Central Park (which was a big plus on a warm February afternoon), and with a subway station on the corner, low-key restaurants nearby, and Lincoln Center a 15 minute walk away. We would stay here again without hesitation the next time we are in the city.

Could of been better

We stayed here for 3 nights in February the hotel was old worldly the furniture etc. We checked in to a freezing cold room had trouble with heater that got fixed quickly. Really disappointed that there was no tea & coffee facilities in the room you expect this as standard in most hotels we had to get coffees in reception for 2 dollars a time I'm sorry but they put water etc to pay for in room they could put hot drinks for free. There is a bar in the hotel which is very expensive your better going out of hotel on Columbus ave or Amsterdam ave a lot cheaper plus happy hours, the bar is like Mexican not a typical New York bar which we was hoping. The hotel is opposite the national history museum and near to Central Park which was good. The subway is at the end of the street to get you about we walked to Times Square to take in all the sites. Would be a good hotel if they put some special touches

President's day weekend

Booked this hotel mostly because of location. And it is located in great spot. Near Museum of Natural History and Central Park. Room was great, lobby is just as big as need, but stuff who is working there is unwelcome. Did not get room for me and kids, because of problem with computer and we came 30 minutes before 3, but took 4 adults after us and gave them room first. I think is rude and very unprofessional.

Older style hotel( like a lot are in new York ) . Very clean, and comfortable beds and pillows .view from window on 15th floor, Restaurant for evening meals and dining room for breakfast and a bar included with restaurant very nice meals . Time Square is about 1/2 hour away on hop on bus around the corner . Great location but not in the heavy traffic and noise .

Great Location Plus Comfort

Several family members stayed here for two nights to attend a family wedding. The hotel is well maintained with old-world styling, yet modern with comfortable beds, and they gave us rooms near each other. (The bathroom could use an upgrade, which they have plans to do.) My room was on the 7th floor, looking out on the Museum of Natural History and the adjoining park. The cityscape view with trees in the foreground was beautiful. We intended to park across the street at the museum, but the hotel staff helped us get street parking. The hotel location was perfect for our activities on the UWS, and there is a subway stop a block from the hotel to drop down to midtown for sightseeing around Rockefeller Center. I would definitely stay here again.
