About JW Marriott Essex House New York, New York

Midtown Manhattan hotel with onsite spa and fitness center

Steps from Central Park

JW Marriott Essex House is a Art Deco styled Midtown Manhattan hotel at the south gate of Central Park, a 6-minute walk from Columbus Circle Subway Station. Carnegie Hall is 4 minutes on foot, and it's a 10-minute ride on the F train to Rockefeller Plaza and Radio City Music Hall.

A stroll down Broadway

With Central Park outside the front door, you can jog, rent bikes, or take a carriage ride to visit Wollman Ice Rink and Central Park Zoo. It's an easy 9-minute walk to catch a Broadway show, and a 10-minute walk takes you to the Museum of Modern Art or Radio City Music Hall.

Relaxing spa and WiFi

You can tuck into hearty American cuisine all day at SOUTHGATE Bar & Restaurant, which overlooks Central Park and catch up on emails with free WiFi in the lobby and public areas. The spa offers treatments and massages, and there's a fitness center on the third floor.

One night 05/12/18
Noticed coffee stain on the window sill and a random foot print on the glass. Both could have been easily overlooked by staff both were in odd location s. Otherwise not a bad spot or stay. Little pricey but then again it is Manhattan on the park. Room service staff was awesome!

Worth the high price
Great hotel, good service, fantastic location, well worth the expense. We celebrated a family member’s milestone birthday with a week in NYC and this was the perfect hotel for our trip!

JW Marriott Essex House New York, New York
all great except for a few minor annoyances
they should comp the business office printing bill --- they charged my card for twice the number of pages I printed out and no hotel charging over $500 a night should charge for water from the mini-bar - period

JW Marriott Essex House New York, New York
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Essex House. Great location, great references for great restaurants near by, amazing staff. Will DEFINITELY be going back there again when we stay in New York City.

Thank You!!!
I was unable to pay the $150 fee down payment for incidentals with my credit card, but the woman checking me in, Georgia, was so kind and compassionate, and allowed me to stay in the room. I was completely exhausted from my journey, arriving around 930pm, rather than the 4pm check-in time, and this kind gesture was greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!
