I've stayed in about 6 different hotels around mid-town and this was by far the best. The room was on the 8th floor, very quiet (we were facing the rear of...

The Essex House is one of those lovely NYC legacy properties. The lobby maintains a classic look, with modern accents and details. The Good: Staff was great, room was comfortable, nice amenities, and proximity to Times Square is great - you're very close, yet completely tucked away. The Rubs: While comfortable, the rooms are small and pricey. Definitely a luxury...

So finding a 2 bed place in NYC is tough so you generally have to get a suite. The suites are nice here, and the staff and concierge are outstanding. This is also one of the only hotels I could find that has babysitters and 24 hours message available. Also you are not going to get a better park location....

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.
