While in town for a business trip my wife and I spent 3 nights at the Essex House. As it has been said, you simply cannot beat the location. Steps from Central Park, close to the Subway, 5th Ave. shops and Times Square are both a very manageable walk.
We were fortunate to have access to the Concierge Lounge based on my status with Marriott and found it to be a highlight of the hotel. Well stocked, well maintained and provided great food. After a cross country flight we were able to eat dinner in the lounge on Thursday (Mon.-Thurs. dinners only) and stopped in for a drink and light breakfast over the weekend as well.
The lobby bar was a great place for a nightcap after spending the day touring the city. Although it was expensive (you are in Manhattan after all) the atmosphere was great and it provided good people watching on Central Park South.
Would have loved to have been on a higher floor as requested but we had no complaints about our room. Larger than a comparable room at the Renaissance on 57th and Lexington although not as nice as a room at the Marquis. Bed was comfortable and bathroom was what you'd expect.
Overall a great hotel that I would definitely recommend to business travelers and families alike!
