Attractions near the Excelsior

Year-round fun in Central Park

Minutes away from the hotel is New York's world-famous Central Park, spanning an incredible 341 hectares. As the most filmed location in the world, it's highly likely that you'll recognise some of the areas of the Park as you wander through its grounds. Although it's far more lively during the warmer seasons, Central Park is still worth visiting in winter.

During summer, you can head out onto the lake in a row boat, watch live performances and baseball games, and simply kick back on the spacious grassy areas. When winter arrives, feel free to pop some skates on and head out onto the ice skating rink, or seek warmth in the nearby American Museum of Natural History.

The historic Beacon Theatre

The Beacon Theatre sits only a few blocks away from the hotel. Built in 1929, the Beacon has seen many famous plays, live performers and musicians pass through its walls including The Allman Brothers Band and Eric Clapton. Today it still serves as an excellent venue for an entertaining night out. 

While staying at the hotel, you might want to keep up to date with all the performances being held at the Beacon Theatre, as each night has the potential to be memorable. If you do decide to attend the Beacon, you can find dinner and drinks at one of the numerous bars and restaurants in the area.
