A perfect place, a great view on Central Park, thank you so Much to Lauren Berger Collection who offers the opportunity to stay in her rooms in this hotel. Do not hesitate if you stay in New York, go to the Marriott Essex House.

Location: EXCELLENT; across the street from Central Park (South). Many restaurants and small shops at walking distance on 7th Avenue. Friendly staff. Nice, comfortable, clean and spacious rooms. I would stay here again and again!

Could not ask for better location. But at $ 400.00 plus and Platinum member was hoping for an upgrade more than 5th floor looking at tree limbs. Sheets and towels in great shape. But bathroom was so small that you have to navigate a door that blocks you moving around. Deco furniture could use a craftsman to touch up so... More

Just came home from a two-night stay at this hotel, and it was divine. If you have read my reviews before you know that friendly and clean is what I like. I love luxury, but do not usually travel in luxury, so I will not gush about how posh this hotel is, I will leave that to the luxury experts.... More

We just returned today from a stay at the JW Marriott hotel on Central Park South. This is the first review I've written for the sake of suggesting to visitors that they may wish to consider another choice when planning a trip to NYC. We have stayed in numerous Marriott properties and other than the comfort of the bed and... More

You cannot beat the location of this hotel! Perfectly situated on central park South across from the park and walking distance to most of what NYC offers! Have stayed several times during various times of the year and the hotel is getting better and better as time goes on. Our room location was amazing. Corner suite with multi million dollar... More

We stayed here a few times when it was a Jumeirah hotel and couldn't have been happier with our experience. This was our first stay since it became J W Marriott and although we weren't expecting a change in standards, we felt a definite slip. We were 'greeted' by an extremely solemn/ rude man at check in. He left us... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times for business. The location is iconic, sitting on Central Park South against the park. Walking distance to some of the best restaurants in the world and even Broadway a few blocks south. The lobby is always clean and beautiful, with fresh flowers greeting you as you enter. Service is pretty good too.... More

Fabulous services. Staff very friendly, courteous and attentive. Excellent restaurant but NY prices. Food and service outstanding. Lobby beautiful. Room was very nice but did not like the wireless price. A very nice experience. Would love to stay again.

Stayed with my wife for 4 nights while on a combined business and 25th wedding anniversary trip. The hotel is magnificent and excellently located right across from Central Park itself. Unfortunately despite requesting a park view we had a view of a brick wall, which rather let things down for us. Some of the service is excellent e.g. the maid... More
