If you can dream it, I can plan it.

Springtime in NYC – JW Marriott Essex House

{Location x Luxury x Hotel x NYC}

Located between 6th and 7th Ave on 59th Street, you’ll find where my toddler and recently stayed at the JW Marriott Essex House (IG @jwmessexhouse) while in New York City.

It borders the south of Central Park, meaning our hotel stay was literally across the street from one of the most celebrated parks in the world!

Spring time in NYC!  Flowers were just starting to bloom and there were photo ops at every turn.


Sidewalk leading to the JW Marriott Essex House – 59th Street/Central Park South Ave.

Our hotel stay wasn’t just about the location but the level of service one knows to expect at a JW Marriott.

Gorgeous Art Deco elevators

One of my favourite moments was when one of the staff members noticed Sadé was admiring the roses on display.

She went over, picked a rose from the beautiful arrangement and while handing it to Sadé said “look at this! It also matches your shoes!”

Such a thoughtful and caring gesture!

Thank you again JW Marriott Essex House!



If you want to visit New York City (or any of the boroughs) and need help, let’s set up a call and let’s see what I can put together for you.  Helps that I used to live there too!
