The JW Marriott Essex House New York is a AAA 4 Diamond hotel and Art Deco landmark overlooking world-famous Central Park, walking distance to Carnegie Hall, the Museum of Arts and Design and many of the sights, restaurants and boutiques that characterize an iconic NYC escape.

Frommer's assures guests they "won't find tiny rooms" when they check in to one of these "magnificent" suites, styled in contemporary classic design, an homage to the historic building itself. Oyster.com lauds the "great beds" in the rooms as well, and guests can log in to their various accounts using the Internet TVs. 

Guests can unwind at the end of the day in the modern fitness facility on the third floor of the hotel, or grab a cocktail at Southgate, the casual onsite restaurant, which serves a wide selection of libations and a "renowned" Sunday brunch (Oyster.com).
