Tasty restaurant, friendly staff and comfortable rooms
Fees for Wi-Fi access
Formerly the Jumeirah Essex House, this elegant property has been transformed into an indulgent retreat, enhanced with an art deco design blended with modern accents. Accommodations feature signature Marriott amenities, including flat-screen TVs, pillow-top mattresses, iPod docking stations and Wi-Fi access (for $16.95 per day). But what steals the spotlight here is the impressive views and easy access to iconic Manhattan attractions, including Central Park, Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. Recent visitors said the hotel is still working out a few kinks, such as missing in-suite coffee makers; however, most described the hotel staff as extremely friendly and accommodating. Previous patrons also give kudos to the tasty seasonal American cuisine dished up at SOUTHGATE Bar & Restaurant. Another bonus: If you participate in Marriott's rewards program, you may accrue or redeem points by choosing to bed down here.
