Why Stay At JW Marriott Essex House
A classic Manhattan hotel on the southern edge of Central Park, just steps from Fifth Avenue boutiques, Carnegie Hall, and Lincoln Center.
Manhattan's hotel scene is constantly evolving, but some properties stand the test of time. Case in point: the JW Marriott Essex House New York, set in a gracious 1931 building at the southern edge of Central Park, between Sixth and Seventh Avenues. During the week, the scene is business friendly thanks to the 511 sleek rooms, all with spacious marble bathrooms; the South Gate restaurant, with impressive park views; and the brand new, state-of-the-art fitness center. But on the weekend, the ambiance turns decidedly local. The Beaux Arts-style Grand Salon is a popular address for chic, Manhattan weddings. An impressive collection of luxurious suites with exquisite craftsmanship, private terraces with unparalleled views, and plush, custom-designed furniture invites guests to relish the comforts of home while away.
In the winter, enjoy picturesque Central Park views from South Gate, and take advantage of winter ice skating in Central Park, for fewer crowds and inspiring scenery.
Have theater tickets? South Gate's $35 three-course prix fixe is a steal, though it's only offered from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. (which works well for early-evening curtain-ups).
Arrive at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) which is approximately 17 miles from the hotel. Anticipate between 30 and 50 minutes of travel time depending on traffic. You may also elect to arrive at LaGuardia Airport (LGA) which is about 7 miles (20-30 minutes depending on traffic) from the hotel; or Newark Airport (EWE) which is 16 miles (30-45 minutes depending on traffic) from the hotel.160 Central Park South, New York, New York, United States
