JW Marriott Essex House New York seamlessly blends the elegance of the past with the service and sophistication of the present and future. Just beyond the doors of our luxury New York City hotel, you’ll be able to experience the natural beauty of a Central Park wedding. From our Art Deco façades to our prime spot near the Central Park gates, our hotel seamlessly marries style and tradition, making it ideal for a ceremony or wedding reception near the park. Our Beaux Arts-style Grand Salon, with its breathtaking chandeliers and hand-painted murals, will transport you and your guests to the Palace of Versailles. Enjoy room for 275 in a banquet-style setup, or 550 for a standing reception. The connecting Petit Salon creates a sense of arrival for your guests and is ideal for cocktail receptions and ceremonies. Combine the two spaces for a seamless transition from the social hour to dinner, dancing and beyond.
