Upon arrival at the hotel, it was snowing and quite blustery, the reception staff and Bell-hop was courteous and helpful, after unpacking we hit the city, we found the hotel location ideal for the Metro (81st Blue LOCAL line by the History Museum), great Health food resturant near by "Spring" on Columbus Ave and Cafe Nectar on Madison Ave across Central Park.
The hotel was very comfortable, en-suite was great, however shower lever needed fixing-the water pressure would have been excellent, the throne could have been bigger!!!!, for a 4* hotel there could have been a room fridge and microwave for those doggy bags(US portions are twice as big UK - so BEWARE), heating system was easy and quick to use.
Hotel Decor was as the professional had taken, charges for the wifi and internet either via credit card or cash, only really essential for your return E-boarding passes, otherwise thanks Excelsior for a great stay,
