The location is one of the best in the city. The room was well appointed and very comfortable. We were able to check in early and found the staff to be very helpful. Would definitely pick this hotel again. The only thing that was missing from the room was a coffee maker. There was a 24 hour deli less than a block away so it was not too much of a problem. Wound up leaving some clothes in the hotel and the staff was helpful in finding and shipping it back to me.
The front desk was friendly and the room good.09/11/2009

I make 2~3 trips into NYC every year and we always try out new hotels. The Essex is probably the best deal I've seen so far. Location is great, across from Central Park, near Columbus Circle subway, steps from 5th Ave. The rooms are clean, well decorated, and comfortable; the lobby is beautiful, very classic New York. The attached restaurant is great for drinks after a night out on the town. A must for a classic New York Experience!
The staff was extremely helpful and polite. the room was very comfortable, nicely appointted, and while not huge, was larger than most of the hotels we have stayed in while ...
The staff was extremely helpful and polite. The room was very comfortable, nicely appointted, and while not huge, was larger than most of the hotels we have stayed in while visiting Manhattan. The bed was comfortable, the flat screen TV was great.

Pros: - Great location in Midtown right across from Central Park South...Columbus Circle, Time Warner Building, etc. Within walking distance to theater district and 30 Rock. - Nice lobby and very friendly staff...they let us check in 2 hours early. - Clean and modern rooms with many lighting options as well as flat screens. - Great housekeeping services...requested 3 pillows and spoons and they were delivered within minutes. - Good after-hour room service options. - Programmable safe in the room. Cons: - Would have preferred a King size bed over a queen. - You have to pay more for the Central Park view...we were located in the back of the hotel overlooking a construction site...didn't matter we were gone most of the time. Loved this hotel and will stay here again on our next visit to NYC!
