Marriott International’s world-class brand JW Marriott is all set to claim its share of Manhattan’s skyline with its first hotel in New York City-the JW Marriott Essex House New York. The 509-room hotel at Central Park South, the city’s midtown neighborhood, boasts of sky-high views of the sprawling Central Park and is just a stone’s throw from Fifth Avenue’s famed dining, shopping and entertainment avenues.
The iconic Essex House which home to this landmark hotel was originally opened in October 1931 was the tallest building in NYC then. The location’s latest manifestation will be a go-to for business and leisure travelers on the lookout for world-class dining, expansive meeting spaces and tranquil spa facilities. They can also indulge in unique experiences from the brand’s partners such as fine art exhibitions from Christie’s, signature in-room bath amenities from Aromatherapy Associates and balanced menu options from Keri Glassman. Mr. Stephen Batta, a man with 20 years of industry experience, will run the show as General Manager of the hotel. JW Marriott Essex House New York is the most coveted address for an unmatched experience in the heart of the Big Apple.
