Very nice hotel

Location was great for sightseeing and restuarants all over the place. Nice area to walk around. Service was excellent and very helpful in helping to plan what to see and do in the short time we were in the city. Room was a nice size for a New York hotel and bathroom very nice. Hotel itself is beautiful.

Go to Bellini which is right around the corner from the Hotel. Nice small italian restuarant with great pizza's, wine and salad. Other comments we saw said the desserts were really good to but we didn't have room for any.

Classic NY city

The hotel is without frills but has a quiet NYC old world elegance to it. The room was lovely and it was great to be able to open the windows and look out onto terraces of the surrounding buildings.

Great place, great location, great value

Our stay at the Excelsior Hotel was wonderful. The staff is friendly, courteous, and accommodating. The continental breakfast is plentiful and a bargain. The room was clean and spacious. A complimentary copy of The New York Times can be delivered to your room door every weekday morning. The Excelsior is located within a short walking distance of Central Park, the Museum of Natural History, and subway stations. We highly recommend it.

comfortable, calm, civilized!

We had not stayed at the Excelsior before, but were very pleased with it. It was amazingly quiet for a Manhattan hotel; the location was great for restaurants and subway connections; and the room was spacious, clean and cozy. We weren't there for the view, so the courtyard-facing windows were not a problem. The breakfast room/library was delightful and the continental breakfast is actually a great deal.

Good location and clean.

The hotel was well located and clean. The staff were helpful but not overly friendly. We were able to park for $20 per day. The only complaint was that the upholstered furniture in the one room (our of three) was in very poor condition. We would go there again.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

The special Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit at the Guggenheim is very worthwhile. The interior of the Public Library is something we had never seen before and is definitely worth seeing.
