Spent three nights at the Essex house while my husband was in NYC for work. First impressions is that the location is ideal - overlooking Central Park, steps from several subway routes, restaurants, and shopping. Valet's were there but not friendly or acknowledging of guests. The hotel has a lot of old, historic charm (hence the building), and looks the...

We stayed for 5 days with both our kids on our recent trip to New York. The location was wonderful. We crossed the road for a walk in Central Park most days. It's a 10 minute walk to the main stores on 5th Ave like Saks. The theatres and the Times Square tack are within range as well. (we live...

Spent a night here for my wedding anniversary. First impressions were great, the location is perfect, right in front of Central Park, and the building/lobby looked charming and inviting. The front desk was so friendly and helpful, they even upgraded my room to a Park view and sent me complimentary bottle of champagne. The executive lounge, where they served breakfast,...

For my husbands birthday, I treated our family to NYC for 2 nights. We got a decent rate for the JW Marriott and the location was perfect right across central park. We booked using trip advisor and was hoping for the Visa benefit of an upgrade or at least a nice room since this was the first time for my...

This is a beautiful hotel with large rooms, unlike most New York hotels. The location is perfect. You are right across from Central Park and near a number of fine restaurants that are within walking distance. The staff was very helpful. The concierge even printed our return airline tickets for us. The only complaint I had was the restaurant was...

It's with mixed emotions I write this review. The check in was easy, the room was adequate although small (it's NYC). The "central park view" was actually a partial view. I expected it to be straight on, not at an angle. Our small windows were facing the building next to us and you had to stand at the window and...

My husband and I decided to do a last minute one-night getaway in NYC without the kids. The stars must have all aligned for us because everything was simply smooth & perfect, including elements outside of the hotel's purview (ie, weather, traffic, etc). From the moment we drove up to the JW's entrance, the valet parking attendant was courteously available...

With all the NYC action of a mix of tourists and business travelers it's very hard to serve your guests like a 5 star hotel. Some of the fabric I.e. Chairs and carpets needed a little help from stains and some of the woodwork is chipped and dated but all in all a good property. The personnel is attentive and...

I stayed here back in 2009 so am not sure how much it has changed. We upgaded to a suit on arrival which was spacious although I would have expected a little more for the price. Cocktail bar is amazing with the variety. We did not eat in the hotel apart from breakfast on room service which again was pricey...

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.
