Marriott International landed two new hotels with the Essex House New York rebranding to JW Marriott and the historic Brown Palace Hotel in Denver rebranding to the Autograph Collection.
Essex House Hotel opened 1931 in Manhattan. The 40-story hotel offers views overlooking Central Park. In 2007 the hotel had a $90 million renovation. The hotel has 509 rooms. The new owners of the Essex House have signed a 50-year management agreement with Marriott International rebranding from Jumeirah. This will be the only JW Marriott luxury brand hotel in New York. There are currently 54 other JW Marriott hotels in 23 countries around the world.
TripAdvisor offers nearly 1,000 hotel reviews and over 100 photos of the Essex House Hotel.
The Brown Palace Hotel Denver built in 1892 is the second oldest hotel in the city. Marriott’s Autograph Collection partners with boutique and historic hotels. There are currently 32 Autograph Collection Hotels with other recent high-profile hotel additions including The Algonquin New York.
Brown Palace Hotel & Spa, Denver
Brown Palace Hotel has atrium skylight.
And there is no need for the hotel to replenish your plastic water bottles every day, even though I am sure they will. There is an artesian well beneath the Brown Palace Hotel for refilling your own water bottles.
The Brown Palace Hotel has a cowboy tradition. Every January the National Western Stock Show Grand Champion Steer gets the red carpet treatment and guests can share afternoon tea time in the lobby with the steer.
I bet you can’t get a date with a steer at the Essex House in New York City.
