Steps from Central Park and all the fabulous restaurants on NYC's trendy Upper West Side - Columbus & Amsterdam Avenues and directly across the street from the Museum of Natural History, the Excelsior Hotel is perfect. The first time we stayed was for a most difficult trip and the hotel provided the perfect calm and spacious room. The bathroom is way too small, but well equipped. The restaurant in the lobby was fabulous, but a bit noisy. Access to subways, buses and, of course, taxis is perfect. As a long-time New Yorker, I was so pleased to be back in my old neighborhood with all its wonderful services and sights. We took a large room with totally separate living room and it was outstanding. On a return visit, I stayed alone in a standard room that was still bigger than many and perfectly fine. I wish they had coffee makers in the room, but Starbucks is right across the street. Otherwise, a great, quiet, lovely home away from home.
