The Excelsior Hotel

45 W. 81st St. (Central Park W.) New York NY

A venerable hotel offering lots of little extras and rates that won't break the bank.

There’s a reason why guests keep returning to this Upper West Side hotel. Moderately priced rooms, a superb location next to Central Park and the Natural History Museum, and notable perks make it a favorite with tourists and business travelers. The historic building has been a hotel since the 1920s, and while its guest rooms may be small, a renovation has given them a fresh look. Art Deco décor and warm, inviting hues, as well as amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions and Natura bath accessories, bring the best of Old World charm and modern convenience together. The extensive concierge offerings include babysitting arrangements, and on-site amenities range from a health club to an entertainment room featuring a library. The exquisitely designed lobby showcases opulent chandeliers, marble floors and faux 18th-century French furniture. The buffet breakfast, though pricey, is delicious.
