Something's happened at the Excelsior Hotel and it's much appreciated! I have stayed at the Excelsior on a number of occasions, primarily because of its proximity to family - we were essentially a captive clientele. After our previous visits, I dreaded another stay. In the past, the hotel has been adequate, but not front desk personnel, or service. They were unsmiling, unwelcoming, occasionally rude, and incompetent with reservations and similar details. As guests, our behavior is consistently a mirror image of these traits. Last weekend, our stay was a very pleasant surprise! The front desk greeted us warmly, attended to questions with a smile, were exquisitely polite and helpful. Breakfast, included in the price, was a delight, the room was small but clean (the HVAC is instantly responsive, but noisy). The stay was so positive that I look forward to our next trip to New York. And, the hotel is less than a block from Central Park and within walking distance of Lincoln Center. Highly recommend for travellers to NYC who wish to avoid the mid-Manhattan crush and noise, yet want access in a few minutes by taxi.
