We booked our rooms for the Thanksgiving parade months in advance this year because we stayed at the Essex House last year during Thanksgiving and had such a great time! While sorting through and organizing all the Thanksgiving revelers and reservations must be a nightmare for the hotel, the staff accomplished it with such aplomb and courtesy, we were blown away. Laura Burton, Front Office Manager and her staff Natalie Sharpe--Reservations Coordinator, and assistant--Christine, all made sure our 3 rooms were perfect for our family of four and for parade viewing, trying to fulfill all our requests up until the last moment. The checkin with Fatima was smooth, quick and friendly, the porters were all fantastic and polite, the housekeepers, security and room service staff, the same. We didn't come across one unfriendly staff member our whole stay; even the executive chef came out Thanksgiving morning to make sure the complimentary hot chocolate was filled up and he regaled us with stories about Thanksgiving at the Essex House. The morning after thanksgiving we had breakfast at South Gate in front of the fireplace, and I said to my husband I felt like I was in a ski lodge it was so cozy and warm and relaxing! The location is great to see the Tree and all the Christmas windows, as well as for the Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall, which we attended. I always feel so fussed over and special when I stay at the Essex House, this was our third stay in 12 months. I can't wait to spend Thanksgiving there again next year!
