We stayed at Excelsior Hotel week of Feb 16 - Feb 24. This is a fabulous hotel in an excellent location. Our room was on the 2nd floor facing the street. I don't understand why this hotel has gotten some bad reviews; we didn't experience any of the issues some of the other reviewers had. While the rooms are petite, ours was well appointed -- we had a king-sized bed which was clean, comfortable and warm. We had a wall-mounted flat screen TV which worked just fine and plenty of channels. The bathroom was small, but functional--although the shower curtain could be longer which would have helped with water splashing onto the bathroom floor. Also there was a heated bath towel rack, which I thought was a nice touch. We also had no issues with hot water as there was plenty of it. We did not have breakfast at the hotel - we were very close to King's Cross/St Pancras and there were plenty of breakfast options there, as well as the restaurant directly around the corner from The Excelsior.
The staff member who checked us in was helpful and pleasant, he took our bags and locked them in a basement area since our room wasn't ready when we arrived (we were early). All in all we enjoyed this hotel, would recommend it to others and will certainly stay there again if we happen to revisit London.
