    I remember as a kid that “accommodations provided by Marriott’s Essex House” seemed to be a frequent mention on a TV show I watched. I don’t remember which show it was – might have been the Ed Sullivan show or Tonight show

    September 7 is coming pretty quickly. I’m surprised that deal is happening so fast. I love the hotel and that part of New York, but in Bali right now giving tours of Bali, Lombok and Sumbawa so won’t be back anytime soon. Will probably stay there when I do and take advantage of my Marriott Rewards. thanks for the info.

    Wow, that’s big news. So I guess they’ll be competing with the Marriott owned Ritz-Carlton just down the block.

    I like the Essex House even though I’ve never been a big fan of Jumeriah hotels. I’m happy to see it being managed by Marriott.

    I learned about this last month from my cousin’s wife who has worked at the Essex House before (she is a realtor) and just started working there again.

    I’m very happy about this–have had some really great stays at the Essex House both when it was owned by Marriott previously as well as under subsequent ownership.

    Love this hotel. Stayed there many times while under Starwood management and was usually upgraded to the St.Regis floors. I can still remember getting a corner suite and overlooking Central Park with the “Gates”.
