This is a hotel I would revisit, and I don't usually like repeat.
It's contemporary and clean, but not sterile or cold. Comfortable bed and towels were of good quality. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was more exciting than your average hotel sliced ham/cheese/bread/cereal selections.
Bonus: gym & sauna were small, but a pleasant oasis if you have time to visit.

The hotel wall conveniently located close to the main train station. I arrived very early and they kept my luggage until I checked. They let me check in at 12:00 noon which was quite helpful. The staff was very friendly, courteous and helpful. They were knowledgeable and provided annotated maps.
The hotel was clean, modern and well equipment with comfortable beds. The towels were of a generous size and they even provided face cloths which you rarely see in Europe

"great hotel close to Frankfurt main train station"
It's easy to find (about 3 minutes from the station).
I arrived hours early (having indicated that on the booking), & the room was then ready within minutes.
I had booked a single and was upgraded to a double.
Breakfast was totally adequate with sufficient variety to please & accommodate most tastes.
Fruit, coffee, tea, water & newspapers are available in the lobby.
The room was absolutely quiet & though it faced the street, I was able to sleep with open windows.
The staff was friendly (they printed off my boarding pass), efficient, competent (a wifi glitch was quickly fixed & it worked flawlessly from then on) and bilingual.

We are frugal travelers, and Excelsior gave us a great value for the price. The hotel is three minutes by foot from the train station, so arrival and departure were very convenient. The check in and check out process was efficient and quick. The room was clean and comfortable. The free minibar was nice, especially when considering that many hotels gouge customers with the minibar prices. The breakfast was excellent, convenient, and had a wide variety of items--I had the smoked/cured salmon on a bun. Housekeeping was on the job early an were efficient.
The only drawbacks to the hotel that we experienced this time was the noise from the street when we had to open the window to cool the room--we were in Frankfurt at the beginning of another of this summer's heatwaves. The room had no air conditioning, but a fan was provided. Also, the bracket for the hand-held shower wand was broken, so we had to shower the old-fashioned way. Not a big problem, especially since the water temperature and pressure were great.
This was our second time at the Excelsior, and we will return again. I recommend it to realistic and practical travelers who want a good, safe hotel experience.

We missed the bus, so walked to the hotel from the train station: a solid 15min. The room we were in was well setup. There is a grocery store, and several little stores and restaurants within a couple blocks, but it is a little removed from things, in that you need to walk (or bus) back to the train station in order to connect to the rest of Frankfurt.
