If I had not traveled to San Francisco last month and stayed at the Hotel Nikko, I would be able to say this was the best hotel and staff I have ever experienced. They come in a tight 2nd place. Highly recommend it, great location.

this hotel is slow in every way: the registration desk is slow especially when you are toating luggage; my room wasn't ready so somebody, somewhere, was slow; late afternoon lounge took 20 minutes to deliever an irish coffee; restaurant dinner waiters were far too busy and, thus, service was slow. then, i left a kindle behind in the room and was never found despite the fact that no guest occupied the room following me - so much for security. after waiting fifteen to twenty minutes for a room, i was given one that looked over roofs with utility equipment. the hotel stay was not pleasant and i would not return.

So wonderful to spend an extended weekend here. Everyone from Doorman to Front Desk, Concierge - even housekeeping - were polite and equally welcoming of tourists and business travelers. Across the street from Central Park, a block from Carnegie Hall and a block and a half from Trump Tower/Columbus Circle & the subway hub there, the location is quiet, historic, and fantastically located for moving around Manhattan. Rooms were updated, tastefully decorated and amenities were excellent. Be sure to take advantage of overnight shoe shines and first-come-first-serve limo service, both gratis! If planning to breakfast at Essex House, expect to spend $40+/person or go out to any number of local spots just a block or so away. (We enjoyed all of our meals throughout the city & kept the hotel affordable!) Cons: *The Essex King does not have a view. Select the slightly more expensive Central Park Queen for views of the park. *Wi-Fi is not free, and cost about $12/day when 3 day package purchased. *Like most 5-star hotels, you'll receive the best service when dressed well and tipping. We'll likely stay here again when we return to Manhattan!

I have never stayed at a posh hotel before, this was totally new to me. As soon as we reached the Check In desk, we were given cold wash clothes to refresh ourselves. Everyone was so friendly. the Concierge had all sorts of great suggestions for us to see and do. He knew right away we weren't made of money and recommended thusly without making us feel looked down upon. I will certainly come back to the Essex House in the future.
Hotel was directly across the street from central park. close to great restaurants , museums, and shopping. room was nice and needed minor touch ups.
