The Essex House, across the street from Central Park South is a magnificent hotel. With dire warnings about New York hotels being run down and only having rooms the size of broom closets, we could not have been more elated when the bell-boy opened the door to a large luxurious room that was spotless and included bath-robes. We got a fantastically lucky deal through Expedia which was close to half price. This is a 5-star establishment with exceptional service and supreme comfort. The location is just as impressive. A subway station is around the corner but we found that Times Square was only a 10 minute walk away and the Museum of Natural History 15 minutes. We would definitely return, though at full price that would be more difficult. If you can afford it or if you can get a deal, this would have to be one of the best hotels in New York.
