Extraordinary experience on Central Park

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I come to New York for a week or two every year to see friends, go to the theater and generally have a wonderful New York experience. In the past we have been very disappointed in the apartments we have rented through the various on-line sources. This time we were determined to have a beautiful, comfortable apartment in a central location. We contacted the owner of this apartment and I must say that our expectations were topped from the moment we arrived.

Lauren met us in the lobby of the Essex House at 10:30 Saturday night upon our arrival from the West Coast. She took us to the apartment, which is gorgeous, and made certain we were well-oriented. She is so enthusiastic in making certain her guests experience no inconvenience that she insisted we take down her mobile number, her husband's number and her sister's phone number in case we needed anything over the weekend before the office opened on Monday. It is obvious that The owner takes great pride in her apartments and homes and it certainly shows in myriad details, from the beautiful linens to the espresso maker in the kitchen.

Now about the apartment. It is elegant,very spacious and has most everything you could need. The views out over Central Park are simply breathtaking. You could sit by the window all day and watch the world go by, except there is so much to do in New York. The apartment has more than enough room for two couples or a family since it has two large bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. Step outside and you are in Central Park or just a block from Fifth Avenue or Carnegie Hall. There are several subway lines within a block's walk, but we walked to most everything during our stay except to the West Village, where we visited a friend.

Over the nine days we were in the apartment, we got to appreciate the service even more. Lauren would check in once in a while without being intrusive. Since we had already arranged theater tickets, restaurant reservations, etc., we did not really use the concierge services. But it was great to know that had there been absolutely anything we needed, the owner would have jumped through hoops to deliver it.

Obviously, it goes without saying that we were delighted with our experience and would rent from this owner again without hesitation.

Magnificent and unique experience right above Central Park

  • 5 of 5

We were already very excited about our holiday after visiting the website with the superb photos of the 2BR Suite at the Essex House (11th floor), but when we entered the Suite on our first day, we really couldn’t believe our eyes…

Even where we had already been promised “an unforgettable experience” in the several e-mails we exchanged before traveling to NYC, the truth is that we never had an equal experience in our frequent travels all over the world, including the ones provided by other luxury Manhattan hotels!!

First the view from the 2 large windows of the spacious living room (decorated by Lauren in a contemporary style with a great sense and feel for interiors) which was a highlight during our whole holiday: every single day, we made a point of waking up at 6am and taking glorious pictures of Central Park and its surroundings. It really can’t get better than this…

Then the intimate dining table supported by a fully equipped kitchen which, when you travel with kids, is the ultimate comfort to have. Instead of going out for dinner or taking the usual NYC hotel breakfasts, the Suite was so inviting that we chose to have there our morning and evening food while relaxing from a day of shopping, visiting museums or skating at Central Park or Rockefeller Center.

The 2 large bedrooms with ample in-room closets and charming individual bathrooms made us feel at home right away. Free Wi-Fi, HD television sets and all the Suite’s amenities made us enjoy a holiday week just as we would be at home, so we were definitely very sad we had to leave so soon (but, as we told you, we will for sure be back at our earliest convenience!!).

Also truly unforgettable was the dinner experience which was especially and gracefully prepared for us mid-week: from the Bentley in which Jeffrey picked us up to the delightful and never ending Italian family food at Carmine‘s.

Finally, the support services provided by Jeffrey, arranging transfers from and to the airport, ensuring during our whole stay that any item we needed was speedily delivered and providing us great hints for buying our ski clothes and apparel downtown at Paragon, fully convinced us that exceeding customer expectations and enchanting their clients truly matter to the whole LBC organization!!

Our week stay was, in your words, truly unforgettable. Though NYC is full of attractions, getting back at night to the Suite is the greatest memory we brought back to Brazil. Many thanks Lauren and Jeffrey!!!
