I stayed at the Excelsior from July 30-Aug.3. I have been in NYC a number of times, but have stayed at luxury hotels. I wanted to stay on the Upper West Side with a less expensive rate. Since I know the city I knew I would not have much contact with the desk staff. I got the American Museum package through the hotel's online site ($180 a night, includes a free buffet breakfast and admission to the Americam Museum of Natural History with a space show). The museum is fantastic, I highly recommend taking a free highlights tour first. The buffet was not much, I'm glad it was free for me. My room was very nice and clean. I was on the sixth floor. I could hear the traffic, but it didn't bother me. Air conditioning worked well. On my last two nights there were a group of younger adults who did wake me. The walls are not very soundproof. As for the desk staff they were polite, but not friendly. I had to remind them that I had the museum package. I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially to people who already know the city.
