JW Marriott Essex House on Central Park South is perfectly positioned to offer easy access to the entire city of New York. Part of the National Trust, the property first opened its doors in 1931. Marriott took over Essex House less than five years ago, breathing new life into it while still maintaining its quintessential Manhattan charm.

Sophisticated décor features such as ornate gilded doors, rich wood paneling and floor-to-ceiling windows make up the lobby level. Recently, their restaurant, South Gate, received renovations to add a more modern flair and art deco ambiance to its interiors. Serving locally-sourced cuisine and craft cocktails, guests can read The New York Times over classic eggs Benedict or sip a Bourbon Ginger Muddle in the evening as the restaurant and bar is open from 6:30 a.m. to midnight.

JW Marriott’s first-rate concierges can also assist in any other needs you may have, such as finding a cozy Italian eatery for dinner or assisting you in discovering the Rosewood lounge inside the Time Warner shopping center overlooking Columbus Circle. And no matter where you are in the surrounding area, you can always find your way back to the Essex House by looking up at the New York City skyline where their iconic red neon sign shines bright.
