Comment About the Building

Many apartments have been renovated at the Essex House, and residents also have full use of all the hotel's services and amenities. 

More Comments About the Building

"Full hotel services (pay as you use). Common charges include utilities and spa."
"Exercise room, meeting room, valet, laundry service, cable TV ready, package room, health club, luxury hotel services, business center."
"Excellent amenities with the gym, and there is access to spa treatments. The office room, which has private rooms to conduct business. The entire building went through a $90 million renovation. Many apartments have been renovated. The lobby is grand with restaurant inside. Entry from Central Park South and 59th Street or 58th Street side."
"Hotel Condominium located on Central Park South."
"Roof deck to die for. Operates like a hotel."
"The building is a pre-war building with a very lavish lobby. There are entrances on both Central Park South and 58th Street, although the main entrance is the one on Central Park South. The building functions as both a hotel and a condo, so the units are mixed. Even the floors can be mixed between hotel rooms and condo units. The Jumeirah corporation bought the hotel and have made a tremendous effort to keep the original feel of ultra-luxury while bringing the amenities into the 21st century."
"Its lobby was recently redone and invokes the building's grand, pre-war feel."

Comments About the Apartments

"Renovated apartments with open kitchen layouts, bathrooms in some units have kept original bathtubs. Apartments with new bathrooms look better. Though in many layouts some kitchens are separated with doors, which is nice, some apartments have half kitchens with washer and dryer hookups and dishwashers. Pre-war feel with high ceilings. Apartments facing the park are gorgeous and get lots light!"
"A lot of pied-a-terres; so many apartments have smaller kitchens. Views of the park are breathtaking. Interior views are dark."
"Non-sponsor units are 5 stars!"
"Most of the layouts vary as the building was originally a hotel. Units that face the Park are definitely at a premium. Units that have direct park views are typically in the middle of the park, offering the best view in Manhattan. The interior facing units are typically quite dark. Many units that do not have Park views will have good city views. The kitchens are typically very small, as this is not much of a cooking crowd."

Comments About the Neighborhood

"Central Park is directly across the street. The Essex House is a premier Condo steps to all Fifth Avenue shopping, Central Park, Time Warner Center and much more. The N, R, Q, B, D, F, 1, A, and C trains are all within a short walk."

Comments About the Board

"There is no condo board to speak of. The sales process is quite easy and although there is a condo office that oversees the process, it is really quite a simple process."
