Shosuro Miren Posted November 4, 2011 Share Posted November 4, 2011 Exalt! Exalt! is an organization dedicated to helping individuals discover and pursue their passions, their selves, pushing themselves to the limits they think they have, and then helping them break through to greater understanding and being. The Exalt! Headquarters Building Location The Exalt! Headquarters Building is situated between Sixth and Seventh Avenues in the heart of Manhattan on Central Park South, New York City. The hotel is located at walking distance from Broadway, Fifth Avenue, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Times Square (15 blocks), Carnegie Hall (1 block), Radio City Music Hall (8 blocks) and Lincoln Center (5 blocks). The Exalt! Headquarters Building is located less than 12 miles away from JFK Airport and 15 miles from Newark Airport with nearby access to New York’s sophisticated subway system. History The historic Jumeirah Essex House first opened its doors in October 1931. Sharing its birthday with Rockefeller Center’s first building, at the time of its construction it was the tallest tower in New York and to this day remains one of the city’s premier Art Deco masterpieces of the 1930s. The Essex House was one of the first hotels in New York to offer a ‘Sunday Brunch’ for walkers in Central Park during the 1930s and many celebrity guests have stayed in the hotel throughout the many years the hotel has been in operation. The hotel was bought by the Exalt! organization in late March of 2027. Renovations are currently being undertaken to modernize the historic hotel into a headquarters for the organization, though the main public areas have so far been left in their Essex House style. Structure and Design The Exalt! Headquarters Building overlooks Central Park, towering 44 floors from street level to the top of its tower. Public Restaurants and Bars Gateway Gateway boasts a separate street-level entrance and the largest fireplace in Manhattan underneath a massive skylight. Gateway offers an outstanding and varied cuisine from all corners of the world, with newly discovered chef Tamariah Johne. The Lounge Located just off the main lobby, The Lounge offers a savory selection of culinary delights, including appetizers, entrées and sandwiches, in a setting of Art Deco style and ambience. Afternoon Tea can also be enjoyed daily between 2pm and 6pm. Private: Exalt! Dining Hall Previously known as The Restaurant at the Essex House, the Exalt!
