New York City's 509-room Essex House Hotel has been reflagged as the JW Marriott Essex House New York. The change follows the sale last month of the iconic property to Strategic Hotels & Resorts, which signed a 50-year management agreement with Marriott International. The property, across from Central Park, has 12 meeting rooms and a spa, as well as nine condominium units.
