Excellent location - right opposite Central Park. a short walk away from the heart of Fifth Avenue, and many subway stations within a block or two radius Rooms and service are pleasant but unremarkable. You will need to pay for a Central Park view. Breakfast spread could definitely be better.

We booked a Central Park View one-bedroom suite and the view was worth the price. The suite had a full bath and a powder room, which was unexpected and appreciated. There was also a large foyer. Staff were pleasant and helpful. We only ate breakfast at the hotel, which was tasty, though pricey; our server--we had the same one--remembered our...

The hotel is nice, clean and well appointed. Of course the best bit is surely the location with Central Park on the doorstep. The lobby area gets very busy and the reception staff sometimes struggle to keep up. Rooms are a good size for New York and perfectly comfortable if a little dated. The biggest complaint is the prices of...

I stayed for two nights for a conference. The location is PERFECT. I started my mornings with a long walk in Central Park so never tried the hotel gym. Lots of Starbucks and dining options nearby as well. The room itself was big and the bed was great. I had a sliver of a view into the park, but that...

I stayed on Marriott points for the weekend while in town visiting friends. The check-in process was smooth, and they moved very quickly through the line of people waiting to check in. Since I stayed on points rather than paying, I knew that I wouldn't get a huge room with a view, but didn't need one as I was only...

Stayed at the Essex House for four nights and really enjoyed every minute of it. Room 2006 was very comfortable and even had a partial view of Central Park (everyone wants a full-on view of the park, which just isn't realistic!). Very comfortable bed, a nice dressing room, great bathroom with hot water delivered quickly (a pet peeve of mine)...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
