Construction began on October 30, 1929, one day after the historic 1929 crash of Wall street. The hotel was first intended to be named the Park Tower and then the Sevilla Tower. However the depression slowed construction and the hotel did not open until October 1, 1931, as the Essex House. In 1932, the hotel was taken from its bankrupt owners by the US Government’s RFC That same year, the hotel erected its iconic six-story sign on the roof. The hotel was renamed JW Marriott Essex House New York on September 8, 2012, after the sale closed. The hotel was formerly the home of a many-starred restaurant, Alain Ducasse at Essex House.
