Essex House Review

This restored art deco gem is a favorite with Europeans desiring good location and a somewhat no-frills practical base—expect average-size rooms with midcentury-style red furniture and marble tubs. The lobby mural was created in 1938 by artist Earl Le Pan—he then touched it up 50 years later. The outdoor patio is idyllic for lazy days of people-watching. The suites, reached by crossing a courtyard, are well worth the upgrade: each has a wet bar, king-size bed, 100-square-foot bathroom, refrigerator, and hot tub.
