JW Marriott Essex House New York, open since 1931, has a great location for visitors to New York City. Just across the street from the foot of Central Park, the hotel combines the best of old-school New York with modern amenities, elegance and charm. Enter through the revolving front door and leave the chaos of Midtown Manhattan behind. The Beaux Arts-inspired lobby is warm, inviting and fragrant, thanks to a beautiful display of pink roses at the center of the grand foyer. JW Marriott Essex House used to have its own on-staff art curator who selected the original artwork featuring Central Park that is seen throughout the hotel. There’s an onsite spa to help you unwind, and the hotel’s signature restaurant, South Gate, offers modern American cuisine as well as gorgeous park views. With 509 unique guest rooms, this spot feels like a hidden gem — private enough for politicians and foreign dignitaries, yet stylish enough for New Yorkers who power lunch amid the Art Deco flair.
