The Empire Hotel’s coveted location puts guests within convenient proximity to some of New York’s top attractions. For instance, Just across the street, guests can walk to overlook the renowned Lincoln Center which includes the Metropolitan Opera House, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and Alice Tully Hall, all host to top live performances and major global events in the world all year-round. In the opposite direction, guests will find Central Park and Columbus Circle less than a few short blocks away.
Really enjoyed the experience - bed was very comfortable, the pool/rooftop lounge was fabulous and location was perfect. Definitely plan a return trip. My only comment is that the bathroom on the M floor should be cleaned a bit more often throughout the day.Comment of R. Laila , United States the 2016-06-21
The first day we came in the whole lobby was 15 degrees! The room was a cheap make over with peeling wall paper, a shower with no door, bathroom sink water shooting out so hard it will wet you! They put a cheap bottle of water on the night stand, and if you open it they charge you $8. They have cheap coffee, which they charge you for, the close has no hanging space because of the safe and mini fridge in it. Speaking of the mini fridge it has 20 different beers none alike.. that blows! The iron board was a crappy mini table top, we had trouble ironing our clothes and the heater was busted! No WiFi unless you paid for it. Most places I have been to have free WiFi, complementary coffee and a stand up iron board! Will not be back!!!
"Good Hotel in Convenient Location"
I stayed there for 3 nights with my daughter. We had 2 rooms. Very comfortable. Walk in shower. Comfortable bed. Front of house staff were very polite and helpful. Bar staff brilliant. Breakfast buffet well above average with plenty of choice and reasonable price Wifi is not free as advertised and is charged per day. Only other grumble is very noisy air conditioning so I turned it off. Still a lot of noise from outside the window in the central space so put sitcom on again!! Great location. 5 mins walk to Columbus Circle and only 20 min walk to the theatres. Would happily stay there again.
"AWESOME hotel & FANTASTIC service!!!"
Had the BEST 25th birthday weekend at Empire Hotel - great location, funky bars & friendly staff! Special shout out to to Michael Stewart - the birthday would not have been so incredible without your thoughtful gesture - thank you!!!
"Great location. Room problems."
Wanted to like it. Great location. Reasonable prices. But they sabotage themselves. Charge for each Internet device. Shower hard to use. Need to pull stopper to get sink to drain. Closet unusably small -- no full length hanging space. Charge even for radio via TV. Robes advertised but absent. Heating very noisy.
This hotel is in a great location right by Lincoln center. While the rooms are a little small, like most hotels in nyc, the staff was friendly and the rooms were very clean. The location felt very safe and easy to access the rest of the city and central park. We were very please with the visit.
