The JW Marriott Essex House is among the most celebrated luxury hotels in New York, a recipient of both the Michelin Guide's 2008 "Five Pavilions Award," and the 2008 AAA Four-Diamond Award. The hotel garnered three awards at the 2007 Annual World Travel Awards in New York including "North America's Leading Hotel," "North America's Leading Business Hotel" and "New York's Leading Business Hotel" voted by travel agents worldwide and was ranked second in the "Best Hotel in the U.S." category in Global Traveler Magazine's 2006 GT Tested Awards.
As our guests enter the grand foyer of our three bedroom residence they have immediate central access to the master bedroom, second bedroom, dinning room and living room. In the master suite, guests will find a plush king-sized bed, a 40 in HD flat screen television, 2 sizeable walk-in closets, and a private bathroom equipped with marble flooring and heat lamps.
The residence houses newly refurbished white oak hardwood floors that truly complement the architecture and furnishings. Large windows offer our guests an unparalleled panoramic view of picturesque Central Park and its lush green foliage, a sight that most do not have the privilege of observing. In addition to your enormous master suite, multiple guests have the option to stay in the newly renovated (2009) second bedroom with separate entry, a large walk-in closet, mini kitchenette, office bureau, bedside coffee table, private marble bathroom, and the choice of two single beds or a queen-sized bed. This would be ideal for nannies, babysitters, guests of guests etc. Our spacious living room is a third option for comfortable sleeping arrangements, but don't let the idea of an upscale pullout-sofa fool you.

Stayed in this gorgeous apartment in March 2012 - fabulous size, great furniture and decor, with all the facilities of the Essex House - met Lauren Berger the owner - charming, vivacious and very determined to ensure my stay was a success.

I stayed in this apartment when I visited New York a couple of years ago. When I walked through the door I was blown away.
It is pure Manhattan style and grace. I had always imagined NYC apartments to be like this. I was so spoiled. The view over central park south was just incredible and I was like a kid in a sweetie shop when I woke up the next morning to see the most incredible skyline. I felt so at home. Lauren Berger had thought of every detail in the apartment. From the amazing homemade bread and Jam to the Carnegie deli breakfast that had been put in the fridge for me. It was just perfection.
The location is perfect. I could walk to Columbus Circle and get the subway to downtown to see friends and to get to business meetings in Manhattan it was a dream. Everything was in walking distance.
The staff were just wonderful and I really cannot rate this apartment highly enough. It was incredible and Lauren Berger is simply the best. No one looks after their guests like this. She is outstanding in this area and I recommend to my clients to stay here whenever they are in NYC.

I was lucky enough to stay in this beautiful apartment in the Lauren Berger Collection last year with a friend - it is simply stunning. The apartment is incredibly spacious, but also extremely comfortable with all the amenities and luxury that you would expect of such a high spec property. The view across the park is incredible, and the location is just perfect no matter what the purpose of your trip to Manhattan. I would not hesitate to come again.
