My daughter and I just returned from a wonderful NYC trip and must say that staying here at the Marriott Essex House was fantastic. I travel frequently and stay at not only Marriott properties, but excellent hotels and rarely write a review. However, we so enjoyed our stay here. The service was excellent, particularly the concierge staff. They recommended great... More

Perfect location on beautiful Central Park South. Attentive doorman & check-in staff, beautiful lobby. That said....wow, hard to believe that this is a JW Marriott property. Felt like an inexpensive hotel in any other city. Tired décor, thread-bare carpets, view from our 11th floor room was of the buildings across the street, no ice machines, no in-room or lobby coffee... More

I guess if you reserve a park view or suite this might be the place to be. Despite being one of Marriott's highest level elite members (invitation only) I was given a room that looked upon an endless grey wall. Basically a jailyard view. No piece of sky. No tree. No garden or city view. Simply a grey wall and... More

My husband and I stayed for twi nights. We were exceptionally treated, from the time of the check in (with Lenissa) to check out. The room, although small, had a modern decor had an amazing view of the Central Park. They even had the right charger for our cell phones that we forgot at home.

The Essex House is very classy, has an unbeatable location, and offers a very friendly and able staff. But, unless you are on a high floor, the rooms often look out at airshafts, or adjacent buildings. Our first room not only had that flaw but the safe was missing and it had not been well-cleaned. We were able to move,... More

We have stayed at this hotel for many years under several owners. Marriott has a very good property with an A#1 location, Central Park is across the street and in the center of Mid-Town. They have done a nice job renovating so far, but have a way to go before it has a five star rating in my book.. Although... More

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.
