Housed inside a 1931 Art Deco building, the JW Marriott Essex House is part of the National Trust Historic Hotels of America. The hotel, which sits between Sixth and Seventh Avenues and overlooks Central Park, offers 509 guestrooms with sleek, Art Deco-inspired furnishings, including marble bathrooms with glass bowl sinks and illuminated headboards adorned with contemporary art insets. Park view rooms also feature a standing telescope for an up-close look at the city. The Lobby Lounge offers traditional afternoon tea, while South Gate restaurant serves modern American cuisine in a dining room lined with floor-to-ceiling windows that face the park.

Room to Book:

Central Park view rooms are well worth the extra cost; just make sure to request a top-floor room for more expansive vistas and less street noise.

Insider Tip:

First-time visitors should check out the hotel’s complimentary Central Park walking tours, which include audio podcasts, maps, and interactive guides.
