This is connected to the hotel. Great variety of food choices from a snack to a full dinner. Wine selection is fabulous, a little pricey, but still excellent choices.

I'm a Marriott fan but not a fan of Essex House. I travel a lot and this hotel and its staff were more than disappointing. Actually, it was the worst experience I've ever had at a hotel of this stature.

When you are in the area treat yourself to some well crafted cocktails and great service. The location on the park is great. The bar is bright and airy. The bartenders are very attentive.

We stayed here for four nights in January. We were lucky and got upgraded to a suite with a Central Park view. The room was huge with a very comfortable bed and a luxurious bathroom with a soaking tub and separate shower. Everything was clean...More

This is a review of the main restaurant in this hotel - the SouthGate restaurant. Ordinarily I'd have just left the review there and been done with it. But look - this is a JW Marriott hotel, which has a very high standard and is...More
