Resident • 2000 - 2001 Recommended
I had the opportunity to live in the Excelsior II for 1 yr. The apartments are gleaming: parquet floors, marble baths, top end appliances, large balconies, laundry on each floor. There´s an indoor pool/hot tub/sauna but hours are ridiculously restricted to when the teenage attendants are on hire. It was always completely closed on Fri and Mon. While these amenities are included in the rent, the health club isn´t; not even a discount for residents. It has great equipment but is in the basement. The deli has many convenient, quality selections; The Restaurant is extremely expensive. The express bus to NYC is very convenient in the am. Parking is covered but a hassle in a multi-level garage, unless you valet for another $100/mo. Good security cameras throughout, but doormen not very vigilant and high turnover. Otheriwse, Managment runs a tight ship. Hackensack U. Hospital 1 block away - lots of ambulance noise. Neighbors generally quiet, older crowd to match the high prices. When you move in, check that your truck matches the height of the loading dock!!
