Spent a night here for my wedding anniversary. First impressions were great, the location is perfect, right in front of Central Park, and the building/lobby looked charming and inviting. The front desk was so friendly and helpful, they even upgraded my room to a Park view and sent me complimentary bottle of champagne. The executive lounge, where they served breakfast,... More

For my husbands birthday, I treated our family to NYC for 2 nights. We got a decent rate for the JW Marriott and the location was perfect right across central park. We booked using trip advisor and was hoping for the Visa benefit of an upgrade or at least a nice room since this was the first time for my... More

This is a beautiful hotel with large rooms, unlike most New York hotels. The location is perfect. You are right across from Central Park and near a number of fine restaurants that are within walking distance. The staff was very helpful. The concierge even printed our return airline tickets for us. The only complaint I had was the restaurant was... More

It's with mixed emotions I write this review. The check in was easy, the room was adequate although small (it's NYC). The "central park view" was actually a partial view. I expected it to be straight on, not at an angle. Our small windows were facing the building next to us and you had to stand at the window and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of July. We found the check in staff very helpful and were pleasantly surprised that there was a lounge open. As a Platinum guests, usually the JW Marriott hotels that we stay at are resort properties without access to a concierge lounge. We found the service & the food at the... More

My husband and I decided to do a last minute one-night getaway in NYC without the kids. The stars must have all aligned for us because everything was simply smooth & perfect, including elements outside of the hotel's purview (ie, weather, traffic, etc). From the moment we drove up to the JW's entrance, the valet parking attendant was courteously available... More

With all the NYC action of a mix of tourists and business travelers it's very hard to serve your guests like a 5 star hotel. Some of the fabric I.e. Chairs and carpets needed a little help from stains and some of the woodwork is chipped and dated but all in all a good property. The personnel is attentive and... More

I stayed here back in 2009 so am not sure how much it has changed. We upgaded to a suit on arrival which was spacious although I would have expected a little more for the price. Cocktail bar is amazing with the variety. We did not eat in the hotel apart from breakfast on room service which again was pricey... More

Great location with solid Central Park views. Service was very friendly and efficient. Rooms were small (what do you expect in NYC?) and could definitely use a face lift. Random problem with the toliet in my room (it never stopped running). However, called maint (twice) and both times they were in my room to temporarily fix the issue within ~15... More
