Fodor's Review

With Central Park views and an Art Deco masterpiece of a lobby, the JW Marriott Essex House is a comfortable Midtown hotel full of character. The property's stately design is at its best in the elegant lobby, with inlaid marble floors and bas-relief elevator doors. Sizable rooms are also Deco inspired, with plush, modern furniture and marble bathrooms. Afternoon tea in the lobby lounge is a leisurely affair, a ritual that alludes to the rich history of this hotel, which first opened its doors in 1931. Amenities, however, are completely contemporary, with a well-equipped fitness center and spa with saunas and steam rooms. The Southgate restaurant draws a European crowd with its design-conscious, comfortable interior, and extensive wine list.
