My family and I stayed here during one of our annual NYC holiday treks. Normally, we like to stay in the Times Square area, but we thought we would try the Essex House since it is new into the Marriott family. If you like old school charm and luxury, then you will like this property. It is located directly across the street from Central Park, and just down from Columbus circle. You can walk to Rockefeller Center from this hotel in 15-20 minutes. You are almost directly next door to the Ritz Carlton, and the infamous Plaza hotel is just down the block. Suffice it to say, you are in good hotel company at this location.
The hotel staff was quite accommodating, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and mainly updated. Although we had a few light switches from another era in our room that we just could not figure out, but it wasn't a big deal.
The Concierge lounge is on the ground floor and offers a nice breakfast, that was also available to us on the weekend, which is somewhat unusual.
We would definitely stay here again. A neat property from the days when each hotel had a distinct personality.
