Spent a long weekend at Essex House with a Central Park view room. Room size was excellent for the City and although it is an older building, it has been renovated nicely. Staff were friendly and helpful. The executive lounge was only open for breakfast and closed at 10:00 am for those platinum Marriott members. Would be nice to also...

What can I say, great location, great breakfast, great staff! Stay here! Central park is at your feet and everything else is around it. Subway just around the corner and horses across the street! Great restaurants in the neighborhood! This is one romantic place to stay at!

We stayed here from 26th Dec until 2nd January. It's a short (2min) walk from Times Square and dead opposite Central Park. My husband and I are early risers and like to explore while cities start to wake up. Starbucks opens at 5am and it literally a 1 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel offer complimentary coffee from 6:30am...

The JW Marriott Essex House is a beautiful hotel in a great location across the street from Central Park. The hotel staff was excellent and always friendly. The rooms are well kept and very modern. The beds were very comfortable and "normal" size for New York. The heating and cooling systems are very effective. We were on a very high...

This is not the type of hotel that meet the usual standard for JW Marriott. It's a terrible, it's a terrible service, it has a dirty carpets, dirty furniture and lack of maintenance in the bathrooms. Water damages in walls and rusted tiles. Don't lose your money.

Overlooking Central Park, the JW Marriott certainly has one of the views in Mid Town Manhattan. The room was small but cozy. The ameneties were standard Marriott, nothing special about a JW though. Overall it was a good experience.

The service and employees at Essex House are fantastic caring people....every one of them. Great location at the center of Central Park South right on Central Park. Restaurant is well run, but the pricing is really exorbitant...almost as bad as room service or your mini-bar. The bed is heavenly. Shower is great. The amenities are top notch....even a 55" 4K...

We had a lovely quiet room on reward points and that was fine. The hotel is centrally located and the staff is very nice. Nevertheless the breakfast was hyper expensive with served coffee $9 for starters. Fruit, muffins and yogurt cost $20. We headed out.

The JW Marriott Essex House is exactly as their website describes. The service was lovely, the basic king bed room (sans park view) was comfortable and clean--the bathroom was quite modern and the cable TV service worked perfectly. They checked us in quickly and were quite helpful overall. Nice place to stay and great location.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
