The location of this hotel is superb if you want to be out of the bustle. When I stay in NYC by myself on business I prefer to be lower down town closer to Time Square but this trip was a treat for me and my wife and I booked a suite at Essex House with a view onto Central Park. There are many subway options in close proximity so getting around Manhattan is easy from this hotel. Broadway and Time Square are an easy and pleasant walk down from Central Park and Bloomingdales, Lincoln Centre and The Met are also easily walkable ( Carnegie Hall is round the corner). The hotel is comfortable and perhaps a little tired. Our suite was very comfortable but a few observations: - while there's a good champagne (Louis Roederer) in the mini-bar, the glasses are plastic ! - the bathroom is spacious and could accommodate a bath but there's only a shower ..... and the water pressure is strong but can't be adjusted ( only temp can be adjusted) - the air conditioning is good and quiet - the Aromatherapy bathroom accessories are excellent - the prices for breakfast and room service are steep ..... there are many excellent breakfast options in close proximity that are half the cost. I'm glad we chose to stay here on this trip but I'm sure I'll also consider other options on our next visit. Collapse

My husband and I are frequent visitors to New York. We have a daughter who lives there. On our last visit we decided to treat ourselves and stay at the Essex House on Central Park South. But we were disappointed right from the start. The room they gave us was small. I think it was really a single. It had one robe and one pair of slippers and a closet like a broom closet. We were there for three days and the entire time there was an empty refrigerator left on the floor. The tub was clipped up and the water did not drain properly. At the end of a shower you were standing in about 6 inches of water. The rugs were a bit dirty and the woodwork banged up. In general the service was good. Breakfast was fine. I did order room service one night and was in a bit of a hurry. They were very prompt in getting my food to me. And housekeeping was fine. I have stayed at many Marriott hotels in many different locations. They have set a standard that I have come to expect. The Essex House fell short during this stay. Collapse

The Essex House is a very nice hotel in a superb location. Paid a little extra for a view of Central Park and it was totally worth it. Rooms are plenty large for NYC and have nice TVs and amenities (although no coffee). I stayed on points so hard to assess overall value. To the disappointments...as a Marriott platinum member i had access to the exec lounge which offered a wonderful breakfast each day. Problem was it was often too crowded and one day it was inexplicably closed early without any prior notification. Second problem was after returning around midnight from being out all day, i had no towels in my room. When i called down to have them brought up it took a little bit so i called back. The rude phone answerer the 2nd time told me i called back faster than they can normally deliver, kind of a weak answer...when they did finally deliver we had fallen asleep and they woke us up. Overall, pretty shoddy. So, bottom line, mediocre service, great locale and nice room Collapse

We have stayed many times in New York both in hotels and apartments through airbnb. Our stay this weekend at the JW Marriott Essex House exceeded our expectations! From the time we checked in, (Melvin at the front desk was so warm and welcoming) to each time we returned out after sightseeing as well as each morning at breakfast (at their incredible executive breakfast buffets for Marriott Gold/Platinum members) we felt so appreciated as a guest. The location is spectacular as well. It is within walking distance of the theatre district but away from all the chaos of that area. The hotel overlooks Central Park right where tourists pick up horse drawn carriage rides. Without question, I will book our next stay to New York at this hotel! Collapse
Best way to spend our last night in NYC

My husband and I stayed here with our daughter who had just had brain surgery at NY Presbyterian. We had been staying in another location for two weeks closer to the hospital and came to the Essex House for our last night in NYC before heading home. We were exhausted and emotionally spent when we arrived. Walking into a Marriott is like coming home to us. We were treated so kindly by the receptionist and she even upgraded our room. (I think she could tell how much we needed a moment of peace after the chaos we had experienced). I wish I remembered her name, but she asked me if she could give me a hug and I will never forget her compassion for me as a person in that moment. What a fabulous employee to have on your staff! We had the most peaceful last night in New York and were finally able to get a good night sleep. Thank you so much Marriott Essex House for being a top notch hotel chain. We will be back in June for follow up appts and hope to get to stay here again. Collapse
