Paying for location not amenities

Great service, location and views of the park; however not the quality in room that I'd expect for the price. Given the convenience of subways in NYC, it may be advisable to get something farther into midtown at a lower rate. If you want the view of central park, this is the place!

Dear JB, Thank you for taking a moment to tell us about your most recent stay. While we are thrilled to hear you enjoyed beautiful views of Central Park and experienced great service, it is unfortunate to hear the quality of your accommodations were not up to our standard of excellence. As we continue to update and renovate, we hope to get the chance to welcome you back.

This hotel was perfect for my family's Christmas weekend in the city, with shopping and shows close by, easy access to Rockefeller Center and Central Park, and cheerful staff and decorations inside. It was my fist stay at Essex House, but it won't be the last.

Great location on Central Park South with a room and view overlooking the park. Unfortunately the room had a musty smell when the heater fan came on and the fan rattled all night.
