The Excelsior Hotel is a gem and retains that feel of "old" New York - not the 70s creepy way, but the class of the 40s and 50s way. We were greeted by the staff and told that parking at the AMNH was $27 per day - what a steal in NY! We then headed up to our room - and yes, the hallway and the rooms are on the warm side - and if you're a middle aged woman you know what I mean! But, with the window left open a crack or the cool air on, you adapt! The room and the hotel are clean and no bed bugs -- a big plus in NYC! We had a glorious view of the planetarium of AMNH and the Park, which are added bonuses in the city! The Calle Noche restaurant is, according to my daughter, an added bonus, but unfortunately never got to try it. Grab a Starbucks around the corner and take morning walks in the Park! We'll be back! Did I say it was CLEAN? Glorious!
