JW Marriott Essex House New York: Sleeping Near Central Park

What Do the Rooms Include?

The hotel's 117 suites feature sitting areas, sofa beds, pillow-top mattresses and fluffy duvets, marble bathrooms, bathrobe and slippers, minibars, and 24-hour room service. Get entertained with LCD TVs, Bose radio and an iPod dock. Larger suites offer more amenities and more space. Wireless and wired Internet access is available for a charge of $16.95 per day for high speed and $19.95 per day for enhanced high speed.

What Amenities Are Available?

Situated at the very edge of Central Park in Midtown Manhattan, the luxurious JW Marriott Essex House New York lies within easy walking distance from many of New York’s most famous landmarks. While Central Park is only a street crossing away, the hotel itself features a gym, 24-hour room service, a business center, and a spa, as well as much more. Enjoy meals and drinks at the on-site restaurant and bar. 

What Are the Rates Like?

As a luxury hotel in a great location, the JW Marriott Essex House's rates are above average as far as are hotels in New York City. A night in a guest room with a queen bed will cost you $239, while the Deluxe Family Suites cost more than $1,000 per night. These family suites, however, make this a very popular place to stay among, that’s right, families.

What's There to Do Nearby?

After a good night’s sleep and breakfast in the Executive Lounge, you can be at iconic places such as Rockefeller Center, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Broadway in only a few minutes. Central Park, with its ponds, grassy lawns, and natural attractions, lies just across the street and is visible from most of the hotel's rooms. The flagship stores on 5th Avenue are two blocks away. 

What's the Bottom Line?

Although it’s on the expensive side and the service has room for improvement, the JW Marriott Essex House New York is blessed with a superb location, lots of amenities, and a fine restaurant. This is a suggested accommodation for business travelers, families, and romance-seeking couples, especially honeymooners.

Expert Reviews
With Central Park views and an art deco masterpiece of a lobby, the JW Marriott Essex House is a comfortable Midtown hotel that is full of character.
This Central Park icon oozes Art Deco... You won’t find tiny rooms here, nor should you; suites are magnificent, especially those overlooking the park.
Towering high above Central Park South, this 1931 icon (now a JW Marriott property) exudes art deco style with black-and-white marble floors and crystal chandeliers in the opulent lobby.
