Fun day in NYC with Maya and Emma

A travel blog entry by abbyandmorry

Spent a lovely day with the girls roaming the City. We started out with brunch at a Spot Maya recommended which is a Filipino restaurant called Maharlika. It was great! The garlic rice with egg was amazing. Maya had chicken and waffles. There was a lot of meat, but they accommodated us in terms of removing it from the more traditional dishes. We …

A Second Date With New York

... I now had two more days in which to explore New York. If anyone deserved to go and see another Broadway show, the person was me! That was my justification anyway, as I stood in line (again) waiting for the Q70 bus to the subway. I figured the day had been a write off anyway, why add an expensive taxi fare to the pain? At least I knew how to get where I was going, and I was moving, knowing I had a warm bed to sleep in that night cured any ills. I wasn't homeless, begging for money to buy ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews JW Marriott Essex House New York New York City

    Best Spot in New York

    from

    My husband and I recently stayed here for our one year anniversary. We got a great deal on Expedia and were booked in a Park View room. If you stay here that is the only way to go! We truly had the BEST view in all of New York City. You are so close to Madison Avenue and all the fancy shops (Tiffany, Louis Vuitton, Fendi) and within walking distance to Tavern of the Green where we had dinner. You are right on the border of Central Park and have better views of it than highrises on Central Park East and West. Room was a great size in New York City terms. Very clean with good sized bathroom. Everyone was super nice at the hotel and checking in and out was a breeze. Also security is very tight and only hotel guests can get into the elevators. There is a man at the elevators checking room keys so you feel totally safe. Do have breakfast downstairs. You have a great picture perfect view of Central Park. Breakfast was expensive but very good. I would def. recommend staying here and would stay again!

    Excellent stay at the Essex House

    from

    The Essex House has a great location right at the south end of Central Park. It is close to nearly all of the major subway lines, as well as the bus. There are many good restaurants in close proximity, and it is easy to walk to many major attractions. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful during our stay, and the room in which we stayed was in good condition, beautifully appointed, and well maintained throughout our stay. Although the room was not large, it was large enough to house 2 comfortably, with ample room for our luggage. The bathroom was larger than expected, and had the trademark "Heavenly Shower" (double shower head) and bathrobes. The "Heavenly Bed" was very comfortable, as was the large chair by the window. New York is a noisy place, and even though we were located in a quieter room, it was still possible to hear loud noises from outside from time to time. If you have problems with noise you may wish to bring ear plugs for sleeping.

    Great Location. Good service. No Hot Water

    from

    Perfect location for a mid-town Manhattan Hotel, on South Central Park Avenue overlooking the park. It is walking distance to Carnegie Hall, 5th avenue shopping, and not too far from the Broadway theaters. The Hotel, with grandeur reminiscent of its 1920's heritage is fully updated.

    Great Choice

    from

    This was the first visit to NYC for our nephew who just graduated from a small town Texas High School. We booked two rooms, one for him and one for us for three nights. Being SPG members, the very courteous registration person upgraded us to a king room. Both rooms were clearly above standard and, for the price of $270 per night we considered a value. The bed and bed linens are wonderful. The rooms are small but very nicely furnished and maintained. Most important to us is that our room was very quiet with good A/C. The hotel has an attractive quiet bar and a first rate restaurant. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

    Worth staying at... repeatedly

    from

    I've stayed here twice, once with a friend I met for a weekend of shopping and theatre, and next when I surprised my husband on his 40th birthday with a weekend getaway. This is the best hotel as far as location and view. You get a panoramic view of Central Park from the South end, so it goes on forever, and it's especially magical after it snows. I didn't eat in the hotel restaurants, but did get room service each morning, and it was prompt and the bakery basket was delicious and filling enough for two. Both times we walked just about everywhere from the hotel, it's convenient to just about everything. My husband loved the location because he is a runner, and still talks about his run through central park, which I watched from the window, cozy in my robe. I especially liked the bathroom, because of the marble, and light colors, and there was lots of room to spread out all of my toiletries. The staff were all friendly and helpful as well.

    Service a notch above the rest

    from

    I've stayed a number of 4 stars hotels and I must say that the service at this one is a notch above the rest. All the staff I encountered (front desk, concierge, doorman, bellmen, etc.,) were not only professional, but genuinely nice. Rooms were what I'd come to expect from a Westin, clean with crisp white linen, fluffy bath sheets, and Aveda bath products. Since I am a SPG member, the front desk manager upgraded me to a wonderful king room. A day later, I was given a room with a fantastic view of Central Park. Alas, it's the service that I was most impress with. I agree with all the posters regarding the convenient location. Tip - Europa Cafe on 7th (1 block away) has fantastic and inexpensive gourment sandwiches and bakegoods; perfect for a picnic in the park.

    Location, location, location

    from

    I always knew the location was wonderful, but I didn't realize the hotel would be run so well. Lovely rooms (though some on the small side), wonderful beds and bathrooms. The beautiful marble lobby has a sitting area which is not used as a cocktail lounge, a rarity nowadays. We were there for Memorial Day weekend and thought it was very well priced. We walked to theater and shopping as well as spending time in Central Park across the street.

    What a classy hotel!

    from

    This hotel was comfortable, classy, and a better value than many other NY hotels in the same price range. Amenities were terrific, shower with double head, lots of closet space, in-room fax/desk area, extremely comfortable bed/linens. Location is convenient to Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the theater district. It was an oasis of calm amongst the bustle of NYC. All staff were professional, helpful, and friendly. Lots of restaurants, neighborhood grocery stores nearby that are open 24-hours. I'd recommend it in a New York minute!

    Wonderful experience

    from

    My friends and I stayed here during Easter (April, 2004). We had a wonderful experience. The hotel is beautiful and conveniently located right across the street from Central Park. It was within walking distance of many great restaurants and times square. We even walked to the theatre district from the hotel. Very clean. Excellent staff service. Friendly service. I would definitely recommend it to others.

    Enjoyed this hotel

    from

    My husband and I stayed at this hotel from May 19-22/04 and really enjoyed it. We stayed in a junior suite which was nice and large. It had a sofa and coffee table area, a large walk-in closet where both suitcases fit, and a roomy bathroom with lots of counter space. We previously had spent 4 nights at the W Times Square to be close to the theatres etc, and then spent 3 nights closer to Central Park and the MET. The Essex House room was only $15 more per night and way more spacious and luxurious. I would stay there again.
