    About

    Opened in 1931, the JW Marriott Essex House has become one of New York's finest five star hotels as well as a local landmark thanks to its iconic neon sign. Many of the building's original art deco details, including murals and chandeliers, have been restored and blend seamlessly with modern luxuries like custom designed furniture and flat-screen TVs. The 394 guestrooms and 117 suites are spread across 40 floors and guests can expect sumptuous duvet bedding, marble bathrooms, and unobstructed views of Central Park.

    Iconic comfort in New York

    After a long day of sightseeing, guests can retire to the JW Marriott to enjoy the five-star facilities including the 24-hour fitness center with state of the art equipment and PRIMP spa for a soothing massage treatment. For dinner, make reservations at South Gate, the in-house restaurant, which is known for its tapas-style menu featuring locally sourced, seasonal ingredients and an extensive selection of cocktails.

    Around and about in the Big Apple

    The JW Marriott Essex House has an enviable location in the heart of New York just south of Central Park. The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is a 10-minute walk away and many iconic New York restaurants, including Carnegie Deli and the Russian Tea Room, are within a few blocks of the hotel.
