Key facts

Calle Ocho, the hotel's restaurant, serves Latin cuisine and cocktails made to order.

The hotel's meeting room can accommodate groups of small to medium sizes.

There are same-day laundry and dry cleaning services available at the hotel.

There is an onsite business center with high-speed Internet access to help guests remain productive during their stay.

Hints and tips

The hotel's shuttle service can be reserved for transportation to John F. Kennedy International Airport in advance, and it is significantly cheaper than taking a taxi to the airport. While parking on the street is free in this area, there are street sweepers who work between 11:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., so cars should be moved during that time to avoid a ticket.

Needs some change

Would recommend Tue, Dec 22, 2015
we often stay at the Excelsior. However, this time we found the hotel dirty. It needs some sprucing up. As a matter of Fact, our room was not cleaned up when we returned after having been out of the room from 9 am until 3:00. Although they send a person to clean up before 4, what i did not like was them telling me (The people that i spoke to on the phone) that they had until 4 pm to clean the room. All they should have said was that we will try our best to accommodate you ASAP. This is a more client- centred approach. My son, who was in another room with his family also found the hotel dirty and preferred other hotels in the neighbourhood which are cleaner.

Hotel met my expectation gorgeous! And effect location. Staff were average, helpful at times. I had to pay for wifi which was annoying but you can get free wifi in the lobby. We were upgraded to a suit on arrival. Amazing few days!

NYC vacation

Would recommend Wed, Dec 9, 2015
Great hotel, great location except that there isn't a good diner nearby. Room was very comfortable and spacious, and the shampoo etc had a lovely aroma. Wonderful restaurant (Calle Ocho) on the first floor. Staff was mostly friendly and accommodating.

Girl heyaway

Would recommend Tue, Dec 8, 2015
The hotel was extremely clean. The location was farther out but worth it. However, we were in the 3rd floor and there was smoking going on even though the faculty was supposed to be non smoking. We told the man at front desk and asked to move is and he said there was nothing available. They should have knocked in people's doors to see who the culprit was. He said he would get back to us but he never did. Also their wifi stunk and we could never get connected in our room. We needed internet to book our NYC activities. So we went downstairs to have the girl book is and get tickets to 9/11 museum so we could guarantee a time to go and she couldn't even connect to help us. She was terrible! The restaurant was extremely overpriced in the hotel. Cheaper to eat in diners around the corner or go to Starbucks.

We had a great time visiting NY

Would not recommend Tue, Dec 1, 2015
Our room was incredibly hot and when you turn on the A/C it comes on but then about 5 minutes later it changes over to heat and starts making burning noises like water hitting a hot pan and you have to get up and turn it off. We called front desk and they said its because its an old system that uses steam and that we can run the fan only to keep that from happening but I was always too warm.

NYC ADVENTURE

Would recommend Tue, Nov 10, 2015
Everything about our stay was very good. One complaint we had was there was no coffee maker in the rooms, or coffee available in the lobby. Also the shuttle service recommended by your hotel was terrible. It took nearly two hours from the time our plane landed to get us to the hotel. As compensation, we were upgraded to s suite which was great. I also enjoyed getting a USA TODAY. Overall, it was great.

Very disappointing.

Would not recommend Fri, Oct 30, 2015
I stayed at this hotel for its location and paid for a Deluxe King room. I will never stay there again. The staff is extremely unfriendly and even rude and offers NO apologies for the hotel's inadequacies, which include: the construction/painting crew directly outside the window ledge of the bedroom from 9am-5pm the broken elevator (leaving just one elevator for all 16 floors of guests) not providing for any coffee or tea making in the room, not even a complimentary bottle of water. Instead, the staff tells you to use a coffee dispensing machine in the lobby (wholly inadequate) or go to the Starbucks a block away. Lousy value for the money.
