I was so looking forward to a return stay at the Essex House. Upon entering the lobby, I was pleased to see that it was still a grand old gal. All changed when the doors opened to the floor of our first room. Only one word can describe...TACKY. What happened? Did someone hire Leona Helmsley to decorate? Ugh. On to the room. Ugly, mishmash of ill fitting built in furniture. Our room had issues, so I went to the desk for another room. The second room was just as hideous, but better than the first. As others have described, the restrooms are awkward and water goes everywhere because of ill fitting shower curtains. The place is a mess. BTW, this is in a suite...goodness help folks in regular rooms. There are MANY better hotels, and for the price you can stay anywhere in NYC and be happy.
