The 509-room hotel is located on Central Park South in Manhattan’s renowned midtown neighborhood, boasting sky-high views of Central Park and situated just steps from famed Fifth Avenue shopping, dining and entertainment.
Travelers have the opportunity to enjoy one-of-a-kind experiences from JW Marriott’s brand partners, including fine art exhibitions from Christie’s, signature in-room bath amenities from Aromatherapy Associates and nutritious, balanced menu options from Keri Glassman.
The iconic Essex House first opened its doors in October 1931 and at that time, was the tallest tower in New York City.
Marriott International operated the hotel from 1969 to 1984 and though the hotel has grown and changed under several hospitality brands over the years, the building remains one of Manhattan’s most revered Art Deco masterpieces of the 1930s.
JW Marriott Essex House New York is one of more than 200 hotels and resorts across the country that is recognized by Historic Hotels of America for preserving and maintaining its historic integrity, architecture and ambiance.
