4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel has lots of Art Deco charm. I really enjoyed the " old world elegance" done in such a way to still make it feel up to date. Really appreciated the quiet public spaces that did not have loud music constantly playing - which is so prevalent in many hotels. Front desk staff was very friendly and efficient. Michael... More

I am in this hotel now. My husband is a platinum premier and I am a lifetime gold. I am paying 500 per night and because he wasn't with me when I checked in the very rude front desk clerk gave me no elite benefits and no free wifi and a tiny room. She rudely told me you get no... More

The hotel has a great location across from Central Park close to Columbus Circle, making it easy to get transportation and there are plenty of fine restaurants within walking distance. The one caution I would give is to find out where your room will be located as a lot of the rooms face alley's with buildings and HVAC units, the... More

Dear greatfultravelr, Thank you for sharing some thoughts on your recent experience. It is great to know our location off Central Park made it easy for you to travel around Manhattan. Though your bed was comfortable and your room spacious, we are concerned that outside noise affected your sleep. Please be sure to bring this to the attention of our... More

We stayed here with a family of 4 in a central park suite. It is very large and has a pull out sofa for the kids. It is 2 rooms and would have been nice to have an extra 1/2 bath. The view was great from the 28th floor. This room is 1/2 or less costly then a comparable room... More

Had a 2 day business trip to NYC and stayed at the JW. Absolutely fabulous hotel. Park view rooms are incredible this time of the year. The suites are very nicely furnished and extremely spacious for NYC. Would absolutely recommend this hotel to others.

Hotel in great location but without a feeling of any central living/ lounge area. The executive breakfast room has no windows but the food was excellent and as good a buffet breakfast as Ive ever seen. The view from the 8th floor suite was fabulous and the lounge huge with great bathroom. Bedroom looks out to the rear of the... More

We had booked interconnecting room for our week long stay in New York.

Our flight got us in mid afternoon and we arrive at about 4pm to the hotel. We were... More

The JW Marriott Essex House New York is fantastic. The Staff, service, atmosphere and location are all perfect. It is across the street from one of the most beautiful inner-city parks in the nation. There are “Citi Bike” rentals less than a block away. You are seconds away from a jog through Central Park, a nice long wooded walk or... More

The service is excellent. We would like to recognize Christina Rodriguez for her excellent customer service. She made sure that all our needs were taken care of and made us feel special and at home. I feel that this hotel is the best Marriott property in NYC.

I love this place having stayed here since the 1980"s. Being someone that only stays at Marriotts, I believe that during the 90"s and 2000"s the property was a Japanese flag. Well the good times are back so am I with Marriott and this is my third stay in the past 2 years. Everything about the hotel is really classy... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood 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 paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit 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.
