My friend and I enjoyed our long weekend at the Marriott Essex House. One can’t beat the location of this iconic hotel: walking distance from museums, Fifth Avenue, Rockefeller Center and of course, Central Park right across the street. The lobby is absolutely lovely. Our room, while smallish, was on a high floor and blissfully quiet -- with top-notch bedding-- that made for a wonderful respite at the end of a busy day in a bustling city. Another highlight was the breakfast buffet, which was first-class in presentation and quality. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the manager, Fatima, who runs the hotel as if it were her own home. She is warm, friendly and accommodating and the Marriott organization is lucky to have her. Kevin the concierge and Matt the doorman were also very nice.
My only negative remarks would be with aspects of the room (2718) that have more to do with the building’s age than with attention. The air conditioning needs to be more consistent; the room got very stuffy in the middle of the night despite having set the thermostat at 65*. And the bathroom, while spacious, needs ventilation and water pressure consistent with that of a 4 or 5 star property. But all in all, we enjoyed our stay and will be returning to the Essex House.
