It's very convenient for traveling in NY.

It exceeded my expectations. I have stayed in many NY hotels but I will be making the Excelsior my "go to" spot.
Elizabeth G. Families with older children United States of America, December 23, 2013
Our fav location

Being on the Upper West Side, the view out the windows of the NYC skyline and the comfy beds.

It was all fine - our view of Manhattan was fab and it was opposite the Natural History Museum and near Central Park, and on the Upper West Side, which is our preferred place to stay. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only criticism I have is that guests have to pay by the half-hour for wi-fi. For a hotel in this price bracket, I would have expected it to be included in the overall price.
Essi L. Couples Finland, December 10, 2013
Comfortable stay and lovely hotel.

Location next to Central Park, near subway station and clean, cozy rooms.

Excellent mid-range hotel in uptown Manhattan at reasonable price. Nice design, comfortable room, helpful staff. Just 2 minutes from Central Park.
Molly M. Families with young children United States of America, August 16, 2013
Great place for our family

(1) The "sitting area" provided a full suite - a fabulous convenience for families where some kids have early bedtimes/naps. (2) The room (2 double beds + sitting area) was large for NYC. (3) Location

We had a great stay and would definitely recommend it to friends and those with young children.

Wife & I enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Its location was great for us cause our family lived just a few blocks away. The hotel room was well serviced by the gracious maids. We missed not having room service/coffee shop/restaurant 24/7 services. Location sufficed as many cafe/restaurants closeness met our needs. Shopping, tourista venues, etc. was at our liking. This will be a one time thing for us at this hotel due to its room rates are way over our budgeting. Will not recommend this hotel for fellow travelers due to this exorbitant cost for rooms.

We stayed on the Hotel only for sleeping, but the room was clean and very comfortable. Great position in the city and very good distance to transport services.

Hotel was charming, busy bar and restaurant

The Hotel Excelsior was well located on the upper west side, by Central Park. The Hotel was charming with an active lobby with bar and an elegant restaurant. The room was lovely, due to making me wait, they upgraded me free to a suite. I would revisit again.
Hotel Feature Tip: The Hotel bar and restaurant, Calle Ochos, seemed worth a visit.
