Fabulous 8.6 From 1,855 reviews

Fair 4.0
Avoid!
Rude front desk, can’t even fake a smile. Rooms are very old, towels were stained, never again.... Only good thing is proximity to Central Park, other than that I won’t recommend this hotel to anyone.
Leonardo, us3 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great for the price, could use an update but it was clean and good. Staff was friendly and amenities were fine. 5 starts for the value.
Caitlin, us2 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Was disappointed there was no restaurant, even the website mentioned one. Room was very comfortable. Great location
PAUL, us3 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Excelsior, perfect.
Great location in my favorite neighborhood, the Upper West Side. Also 1/2 block from the subway. Perfect. This is my now go-to hotel in NYC.
Ronald, us2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Nice place to stay in midtown.
Nice hotel in midtown across from the History Museum. A little outdated, but charming AND clean. Park at the museum and present your ticket as you check in for validation. The parking is then $30 for 24 hours which is a huge deal in NYC. The reviewer who complained about the hotel not having parking is clearly not from a big city. I’ve never seen a hotel in downtown Boston with free parking.
