Individual guest reviews

  • Great location by Lincoln Center and central Park. Very comfortable, pleasant decor, nice lobby and the staff at the Empire was very considerate. Room was very clean and the free breakfast was perfect for us.

    This hotel is an expensive club environment, bathroom is very small.

  • Rooftop area is nice, the Empire Hotel has a great location.

    The restaurant and the fitness center were not available during our stay, most of the staff were pretty rude and not helpful, the room was much too warm. The pillows were a bit soft and there was a bit of mold in the bathroom.

  • I liked the location, central Park and the hotel has a good restaurant as well. Hotel’s beds are very comfortable.

    The decor is way to busy and fussy, the concierge service is unreliable, we moved rooms due to broken ac and the bar played loud dance music.

  • Attractive and comfortable lounge area, central Park is very close by too, times Square is within walking distance about 15 minutes. The hotel takes every concern to heart have very kind and service is nice and helpful. The complimentary internet comes in and out every 5 mins, amazingly good food that is not your typical, the gym is well equipped.

  • Lots of good seating areas and near the subway lines and major taxi routes. The decor is fresh and lobby is nice. Central park is just 5 minutes away, the staff is generally responsive and polite, the room itself was a reasonable size, I suspect space is at a premium in NYC. Cereral etc. fine for a snack to start the day and pool is enclosed.

    The recently renovated hotel is already run down & shabby, poor air conditioning and for the price you pay, there is no free WiFi, two tiny cups of coffee cost an arm and a leg.

  • Nice view of met opera and the staff were very friendly and quick at getting cabs for us. The hotel itself was great, service was perfect and wifi reception in the room was very good.

    Nearby most of the night, awful stay and not worth the money. Arrogant front desk and poor shower. The mini bar prices are beyond ridiculous.
