Marriott has done a beautiful job renovating this historic hotel. Clean, bright, big and beautiful rooms. Great staff. One of the best addresses in the City! We were upgraded to a Park view, I love being a platinum member! The only thing that was disappointing was the concierge lounge was under construction, so breakfast was in the restaurant downstairs, which... More

Stayed in this hotel last Summer (June 2013) and had great time there. I booked the park view suite and the first night was checked into a suite only with partial view. Called the front desk the very next day and they moved me to another one with full front park view from the living room. The hotel has art... More

Front desk staff and concierge were excellent. We had a great view over Central Park. Executive lounge was closed for renovation but the hotel gave breakfast coupons with limited selections. The location is hard to beat. Marriott is doing a nice job with this property.

whenever we go to the museum or opera for an evening event, we stay here as the location is wonderful and it's a beautiful hotel. Wonderful view of central park. Well worth the stay while in NYC. Rooms are large for NY.

I have been staying here since 2008 when it was jumeirah essex house. I was disappointed to learn that JW marriot has taken over the management taking away the unique service that I have to experience from jumeirah group. The rooms are exceptionally spacious with amazing comfort of good mattress and 3000 threat count sheets and good quality toiletries. Bar... More

We were staying here for 2 nights at 15 floor. The view to the Central Park was beautiful. Besides, we were chosen as guest of the day in booking.com and were offered to stay in junior room instead of deluxe. Staff is very very good. Theres also a spa, jewelry shop, restaurant here. Location is the best. You can go... More

It is the smartest Marriott property I've experienced in the city (and I have stayed in almost every higher-end Marriott there.) The Essex House is a classic building with grand touches all round. It is in a great location opposite the park and a pleasant stroll from the theater district. I was only in for the weekend on Rewards points,... More

Upon arriving into our room and scoping it out we noticed a Used razor and shaving cream on the towels in shower on the rack. I called and asked for fresh towels since they obviously not changed between guests and the woman on the phone was very curt, like I was an inconvenience. I believed I was very nice about... More

This is a hard hotel to describe. First, the good. The location, directly across from Central Park, is wonderful. The lobby is beautiful, with plenty of gold and marble and such. The building, or at least its sign, is iconic. It just feels like a classic, historic hotel. And, for what we paid, it felt like a better deal than... More
