Comfortable hotel in a great location
This was our first time to stay at the Essex House. The location was perfect for us. It was right across the street from Central Park, 1 block from the Plaza, shopping, subway, Carnegie Hall, 5 blocks from Times Square (we didn't want to stay in Times Square), and 1.2 miles to the Empire State Building (we walked). We didn't have a view (just an inner wall) but that actually protected us from the city noises and we had a great breeze. Our rooms were updated and clean. We tried room service. The food was good and on time. The lobby was beautiful with fresh flowers in the entry. Ubers and cabs were easy to get and some amazing restaurants were walking distance.
