I stayed on Marriott points for the weekend while in town visiting friends. The check-in process was smooth, and they moved very quickly through the line of people waiting to check in. Since I stayed on points rather than paying, I knew that I wouldn't get a huge room with a view, but didn't need one as I was only... More

Stayed at the Essex House for four nights and really enjoyed every minute of it. Room 2006 was very comfortable and even had a partial view of Central Park (everyone wants a full-on view of the park, which just isn't realistic!). Very comfortable bed, a nice dressing room, great bathroom with hot water delivered quickly (a pet peeve of mine)... More

I spent a long weekend here.to visit my daughter. Location is super central - close to subway and walking distance to lots of place. Directly across the street from Central Park. Bed was comfy, bathroom/shower was average. The hotel is a bit tired and the style is dated. Free wifi in the lobby, but $15/day in your room. Seriously NO... More

Stayed at this hotel for 3 days and 2 nights. Right beside Central Park which was nice considering we have never been that close to the park. We spent our last day at the park which was breath taking. The hotel is world class and the staff and the room was only first class. Certainly a place to consider to... More

I have stayed at Essex House about 30 times during the last plus 5 years. Most times on business but also with my wife or the whole family when visiting NYC. We have chosen The Essex House for three reasons: the superb location across the street from Central Park, the pretty big bedrooms (not the usual NYC shoebox size hotel... More

Spent three nights at the Essex house while my husband was in NYC for work. First impressions is that the location is ideal - overlooking Central Park, steps from several subway routes, restaurants, and shopping. Valet's were there but not friendly or acknowledging of guests. The hotel has a lot of old, historic charm (hence the building), and looks the... More

We stayed for 5 days with both our kids on our recent trip to New York. The location was wonderful. We crossed the road for a walk in Central Park most days. It's a 10 minute walk to the main stores on 5th Ave like Saks. The theatres and the Times Square tack are within range as well. (we live... More

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
