The Excelsior is right next to Frankfurt Hbf, so is convenient if you have to stay overnight between trains on your way through Germany. Come out of the station on the south side (turn right coming off the platforms), cross the road and you're there. For a short stay I thought it was absolutely fine, and excellent value for money.
My room wasn't very luxurious, but was comfortable and clean. Free minibar, including water, cola and beer, and the wifi worked well. The breakfast (included in the room rate) was surprisingly good, a huge selection and a nice big dining room so no problem getting a table.
The only drawback is that the area round the Hauptbahnhof is not the nicest part of the city, and can feel a bit seedy in the evening - there are quite a lot of people sleeping rough. Plenty of fast-food outlets but couldn't find anywhere for a proper sit-down dinner. So I took the S-bahn two stops along to Hauptwache in the city centre, and there are plenty of good places to eat there. Or (as I found the next day) you could go to the old town square near the Dom for an even better choice.
