I recently spent 4 days in New York at the Essex House and was pleased with the overall look and comfort of the hotel. I found the bed exceptionally comfortable as I'm use to sleeping on a Tempur-Pedic matress. The bathroom was roomy with an exceptional shower with great water pressure (nice). The hotel staff was accommodating and helpful when asked for assistance. I did have a chance to experience breakfast at the hotel of which I would give 4.5 stars with regards to presentation and quality. Unfortunately I was unable to experience any type of room service. Overall I was most satisfied, as the hotel is within blocks of everything exciting about New York. Street food vendors were about 1.5 blocks away with a New York Style Pizza shop directly across the street on the backside and Central Park in the front. Be sure to check the bar amenity (If so equipped) status in your room upon entry and during check-out. Collapse

I stayed at the JW Essex House on October 22nd for one night. Being a Marriott Platinum I had requested an upgrade but didn't hold my breath. I did not get to the hotel until 10pm that night and I was pleasantly surprised to see that I was upgraded to a family suite. The room was huge (for NY standards), and had 1.5 baths and a separate sitting area. The next morning I had breakfast at the Executive Lounge, and I must say the spread was excellent. The space is not huge, so a little wait for a table can be expected. The hotel has a great location (from a tourist standpoint)! The concierge staff and other housekeeping staff were friendly and helpful. Couple of dings - rooms are in need of a refresh (not sure when they were done last), as there are small things you may notice in the room (a little pain peel or water stain)...nothing that impacted my stay. One suggestion - if you truly want to be considered the luxury brand for Marriott (aside from Ritz), you need better bathroom products - this generic stuff made by Sysco is not going to cut it. Even Marriott Park Lane (London, not a JW) provided L'Occitane products. Overall a good visit, would love to stay again. Collapse

We stayed here a good while ago on our honeymoon when owned by Starwood/Westin. It was a grand place then. stayed this time three nights in October 2016 now it is like any grubby old Marriott once you get past the lovely reception area and old lifts/elevators. years ago there was a lovely art deco dining room with amazing sunday brunch. This has been ripped out and it is now a soulless brown and gold modern thing you could find anywhere. We ate breakfast here and for two adults and a child a buffet breakfast cost us $116 and it really wasn't anything special. The staff are surly and useless. we got up and refilled our own water glasses and were never offered a refill of coffee. AVOID. Our room was on 9th floor and was only adequate and decoratively bland and tired. Bath not big enough to drown a mouse. The maid was careless: things knocked on floor and left there and on the coldest day of the Autumn 12c/55F she left the window open all day. Nothing we could do with the aircon/heating got the room back up above 63 and we were glad to check out the next morning frozen to the bone. Also not happy with bell staff/ doormen. On our last afternoon we waited outside to get a yellow cab to JFK. They insist on calling one off the street and have their hand out to you waiting for a tip. Our cab driver told me that he nearly drove off as they demanded $10 FROM HIM to be given the valuable JFK fare!!! he told them where to go. And I will tell you to go and find a better hotel for the money in NY. It wont be difficult. Collapse

We spent five days last week at the Essex House in a combination business / vacation trip. The room and bathroom were very, very small but it is NY and the location can't be beat so we were not complaining. However, starting on the second day, we started hearing a non-stop noise above us. Sounded like a large dog running around. We complained and they said they would deal with it. Long story short, the room above us is part of a condominium and there was nothing they could do about it. They couldn't even switch us as the hotel was full. In the end they gave us 25% discount on two of the nights but if you are a light or even average sleeper, stay away from this room! Collapse

Stayed in the city after visiting family in Jersey. This was the perfect location we had all the shopping on Madison and 5th Ave at our disposal. We walked everywhere Rockefeller Center, Times Square, Carnegie Deli, Broadway the Diamond District . We stayed on points and was provided a beautiful one bedroom suite with a huge Bathroom. For NYC this place would be large enough to live in. The executive lounge breakfast was great it was like being on a cruise, bagels and lox, pastries all fresh and tasty. The seating was a little tight but the service was great. The evening service at the lounge was good also they provide drinks on the honor system but they keep a pretty tight track so no free drinks. We enjoyed our stay at the JW and cant figure why I haven't stayed here before. I tell you the apartments across the street at night were very visible from the hotel. Many guests were attending the US Open and I met some of the players from Italy. Collapse
