The lobby staff was really nice and helpfull. Checkin was really easy and fast. I had my flight at midnight and the hotel provided storage for my luggage after my checkout.
Staff was very helpful. room was cramped, dark with only one table lamp, ac was iffy, good bed.
I loved the roof terrace and the ability to sit in and outside with magnificent views across New York. I also loved the hotel’s close proximity to Central Park and the Lincoln Centre (where I was attending a conference) It was also close to Colombus Circle which had good shopping plus the Metro station making trips downtown easy. Special shout out to Danny on reception who was really helpful and took good care of us.
The first night I was given a room on a lower floor at the front of the hotel and it was really noisy. I was then moved to one of the top floors at the back (overlooking the Lincoln Centre) and that was much quieter
Clean. Friendly staff. Phenomenal location that is very close to Central Park and an easy walk (about .7 - 1.0 mile) to the theatre district.
It was a good hotel. However, the rate fluctuated enormously from day to day. Doubled on the weekend.
Long considered an icon in the New York area, the Empire Hotel continues to impress guests today. Even it’s most “standard” room is anything but “standard.” The lofty architectural features of the surrounding area are reflected in the everything from the tall headboard to the subtly elongated bedside lamps.
The sense of style does not stop within the walls of the rooms. The hotel lobby, with its triple-height ceilings, angular tile patterns, all tactfully set alongside the curves of larger than life drapes and overhead light fixtures remind guests of the grandiose nature of both the hotel and the city it reflects.
The dining options impress as well. P.J. Clarke's continues to offer its classically prepared American food. There may be no more iconic place to grab a burger and oysters than in one of their comfortable seats. The option to dine while amidst the clouds is always tempting for guests as well, with a jaunt up to The Empire Rooftop.
Any meeting or event is automatically graced with a touch of class when it’s done at at the Empire Hotel. Crystal ballrooms, complete with white and cream-shaded hues, can elevate guests’ events so they match the style of those present.
A stroll on the pool deck allows more than just a dip in the water. Guests can take in elevated views of Lincoln Center, Central Park, the Upper West Side, and beyond.
The Empire Hotel is a mainstay of the classic New York Experience. It provides a great launching point for exploring the city of New York or the possibilities the city presents.
