Let me preface my review by saying I'll always love the Essex House. I got married here 22 years ago and guests still rave about how amazing the wedding was. We decided to treat ourselves and plan an overnight stay in the city with our kids. It was a splurge, the room was $600+ for one night. At this rate,...

Excellent location with spacious rooms and delicious food. Central Park views are stunning. The staff was friendly and the bar served up cocktails with finesse. Only downside is there was construction going on with building behind it when I stayed there beginning of May, but that sort of thing is common in most areas of Manhattan.

This hotel has a storied history on Central Park South and overall was a good property for a NYC vacation for two. However, there was room for improvement.

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.
