Outside eating/drinking facilities shut until May. Used the Phoenicia Hotel facilities instead, Duty Manager was due to contact me but never did. Suggest a refund would be in order.

2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The location of the hotel being close to the castille was nice. The "harbor view" terrace room was great in terms of having a terrace. Room service is nonexistent or just no food or just refuses to answer the phone. Restaurant hosts were always impatient and off setting. Spa receptionist was also short tempered and impolite - although the silver lining was the concierge went above and beyond to make massage reservations elsewhere. Overall, the experience determined we will not return to Excelsior.
