We stayed in a junior suite for 6 days in April. I had once stayed regularly at the Essex House, 20+ years ago, and, induced by a special price and Marriott's relatively new management, as well as its convenience, though I'd try again. Bad decision. Although the room was comfortable, and the location is still as convenient as ever, that...

My husband, daughter(8) and I just spent 4 nights at the Essex House. We had a fantastic stay. We stayed in a one bedroom suite on the 30th floor overlooking Central Park. I'm not sure if we were upgraded but the suite was huge and well worth the splurge. We particularly enjoyed that the windows would open to allow fresh...

I have probably stayed at 10 different Marriott properties in NYC. This is my favorite. It's hard to beat the location next to the park. Quick walk to times square. Quick access to a subway. This is a very nice property. The hotel has a lot of charm. I have stayed here now many times over the last year. It's...

My friend and I enjoyed our long weekend at the Marriott Essex House. One can’t beat the location of this iconic hotel: walking distance from museums, Fifth Avenue, Rockefeller Center and of course, Central Park right across the street. The lobby is absolutely lovely. Our room, while smallish, was on a high floor and blissfully quiet -- with top-notch bedding--...

Stayed here on business - truly awesome location. The general room is a nice size and comes with standard Marriott amenities for this class of hotel. Most of the staff was friendly and courteous and while the concierge we encountered on two evenings was both of these things, he was not knowledgable. The first evening we were trying to locate...

We stayed at the JW Marriot for a long weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday. As mentioned by everyone else, the location directly across from Central Park is fantastic.

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.
