160 Central Park South

Lobby art recognizes the Essex House special relationship with Central Park. A print of Central Park by Korean photographer Atta Kim dominates the polished-marble lobby.

Designed by Frank Grad, the Essex House is one of the National Trust Historic Hotels, a program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Frank Grad also designed the Newark Symphony Hall. Some say the hotel's name derives from Mr. Grad’s primary residence in Essex County, New Jersey.

Originally called Park Tower and then Seville Towers, the 40-story, Art Deco hotel tower opened along Central Park South in October 1931. The hotel’s first general manager, Albert Auwaerter, threw a grand opening party for 1,000 in the hotel’s Colonnades Ballroom.

By 1932 the hotel was known as the Essex House and the six-story Essex sign was erected on top of the hotel. Still today some claim the sign is offensively too large and blight on the city’s skyline.

The building is clad in brown brick with large guestroom windows and decorated setbacks. The lobby has massive fluted columns of black marble and it extends through the block as a corridor flanked by the elevator banks. Its main entrance has Art Deco gilded doors.

In 1932 the Reconstruction Finance Corporation (RFC) took title to the Essex House and retained ownership for fifteen years. Congress established the RFC in 1932 to provide liquidity and restore confidence in the banking system to offset the Great Depression.

George Burns and Gracie Allen lived at the Essex House in 1934; Betty Grable and Milton Berle were residents in the 1940s. British TV host Sir David Frost owned a 1,200 sq ft pied a terre in the Essex House during the 1990s. More recent tenants have included Angelina Jolie (penthouse at the top), Jude Law, and Samuel L. Jackson.

In the 1930s the Essex House featured a “strollers brunch” - so called for those completing a Sunday morning walk in Central Park. This leisurely meal, served from around noon to late afternoon, evolved in to the Sunday brunch.

In 1946 Samuel H. Golding, founder of Sterling National Bank and Trust Company, purchased the Essex House. At the time of his death in 1970, Samuel H. Golding was 84 years old and lived in the Essex House at 160 Central Park South. Golding’s wife, Rachel Golding, gifted to Yeshiva University $40 million in memory or her late husband Samuel H. Golding. At the time of the gift in 1992, Yeshiva had an endowment of just $293 dollars. Yeshiva is America's oldest and largest university under Jewish auspices.

Marriott purchased the hotel in 1969.

Marriott’s byline for the hotel: “When you have been spoiled everywhere else by a Marriott, where do you stay in New York? Marriott’s Essex House! “

The restaurant outlets during the 1970’s at Marriott’s Essex House included Kings Wharf Restaurant, Windjammer Bar and for Marriott, the futuristically named - Fairfield Inn Coffee Shop.

Many remember from 1970’s the TV announcer Don Pardo would proclaim that "guests of Saturday Night Live stay at the Essex House!"

Japan Air Lines Development (U.S.A.) Inc., a subsidiary of the Tokyo based national carrier bought the hotel in 1985. Its hotel affiliate Nikko Hotels International took over management and renamed the 715-room hotel - Essex House Hotel Nikko NY.

The Essex House was to be a springboard for Nikko’s future growth.In 1991, Japan Airlines spent more than $75 million in renovating the property. The room count was reduced to 580.

According to the NY Times the renovation included widening the lobby looking out on Central Park, with added seating and the reclaiming of windows in that area that in earlier renovations had been put to other uses. The entire plumbing, wiring, heating, air-conditioning and elevator systems were to be replaced.

Chef Christian Delouvrier opened the 75 seat French restaurant, Les Celebrites (previously Devereux’s on-the-Park) with a $70 average ticket. The hotel’s moderately priced restaurant was Cafe Botanica. Delouvrier previously served as executive chef at the Parker Meridien's French restaurant, Maurice.

Nikko hired Pierre Yves Rochon of Paris to serve as the interior designer. Brennan Beer Gorman was the architect for the restoration, and the contractor was Tishman Construction Company.

In March 1999 the 597-room Essex House was sold for $260,000,000 ($435,511 per room) to Strategic Hotel Capital. SHC retained Starwood Hotels to manage the hotel renamed: Essex House, A Westin Hotel, New York City.

In September 2000 Starwood created The St. Regis Club at the Essex House - a hotel within a hotel - that comprised the top floors and had 104 rooms, a restaurants and a lounge.

In September 2005, the Dubai Investment Group paid $440 million to acquire the hotel portion of the building that consisted of two components the 501-room Westin and the 104-room St. Regis. There were approximately 148 private res

The Hampshire House with its steeply pitched copper mansard roof, two tall chimneys and a cascade of set backs is architecturally more creative then the simplistic facade of the Essex House.
