4 out of 5
If you’re happy to stay out of the midtown hustle and bustle, this hotel is great! Very close to Central Park and round the corner from the Natural History museum and subway stations, although only a 30-40 minute walk into Times Square if walking is preferable for you! Not particularly ideally situated nearby restaurants for dinner, but wasn’t a deal breaker for us as we just ate in and around Times Square! WiFi was actually pretty decent too, not too sluggish! Can’t comment on the breakfast as we didn’t eat at the hotel! Bell men very helpful! We were staying under a very noisy room, but that is of no fault of the hotel and we were actually offered the option of a different room which was appreciated! Sink had a crack in it, but overall the room functioned for what we needed! Overall, a very decent stay! Thanks, Excelsior!

Gepflegtes Hotel in eher ruhiger und guter Lage

Pros: Ruhig, sauber freundliches Personal
Das Hotel ist direkt am Central Park, das National Historical Museum nur 2 min entfernt. 2 Blocks weiter kann man abends viele Restaurants in der Amsterdam Rd. finden, ebenso die U-Bahn. Wir hatten ein Zimmer im 10. Stock und es war sehr ruhig. Das Zimmer und Hotel selbst sind vielleicht schon etwas in die Jahre gekommen, aber sauber und ausreichend für einen Trip nach New York, man ist eh nur zum schlafen da und das haben wir sehr gut. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit mit Tipps, Transfer zum Flughafen etc. Wir waren mit Kind unterwegs und für uns war das Hotel perfekt. Delius zum Frühstücken sind ebenfalls ums Eck und zu Fuß zum Times Square benötigt man ca 30 min und ist mit dem Hotel weg vom Trubel.
