We stayed here on short notice. We were staying in another area of Manhattan, and while visiting Central Park, wandered into the Essex and enquired about rates. They were offering a deal which included New Years Eve and the following six nights, which we booked. The hotel is very comfortable, and was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We had a wonderful...

Very Classic. It would be one of the best NYC experience. Most items are worn down, as expected from the classic and historical hotel. Still the most important quality of the hotel comes from the bed and the environmental control of the room: I say "Excellent" For the younger generation, not sure if you want to become usual, but for...

Too much with SPG Hotels, just randomly booked JW Marriott. Amazing Guest services. Nice Room, got complementary upgrade on 3rd floor, with central park view. I liked the trend of presenting the Golden Key to access lounge. Beautiful Louge Hostess was there to welcome with refreshing smile, nicely presented buffet breakfast, unexpectedly good service. I am definitely going back and...

Spent a long weekend at Essex House with a Central Park view room. Room size was excellent for the City and although it is an older building, it has been renovated nicely. Staff were friendly and helpful. The executive lounge was only open for breakfast and closed at 10:00 am for those platinum Marriott members. Would be nice to also...

We stayed here from 26th Dec until 2nd January. It's a short (2min) walk from Times Square and dead opposite Central Park. My husband and I are early risers and like to explore while cities start to wake up. Starbucks opens at 5am and it literally a 1 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel offer complimentary coffee from 6:30am...

The JW Marriott Essex House is a beautiful hotel in a great location across the street from Central Park. The hotel staff was excellent and always friendly. The rooms are well kept and very modern.

This is not the type of hotel that meet the usual standard for JW Marriott. It's a terrible, it's a terrible service, it has a dirty carpets, dirty furniture and lack of maintenance in the bathrooms. Water damages in walls and rusted tiles. Don't lose your money.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
