Location and quality of room amenities plus view made this an awesome stay for us.
Rooftop views were wonderful but service fell short of expectations (no place settings or napkins served with our meals until we were almost finished).
Location good if you want to be close to Central Park / Midtown locations. Nice lobby. Rooftop not as nice as the pictures. Beds were nice despite old rooms.
Really old rooms & corridors. Quite cramped bathrooms, also seen a few years pass. lack of storage facility in the room.
Location near central park and close to subway. The lobby is nice.
The room was very small and needs serious maintenance and refurbishment. Dirty carpet. The room just does not seem clean because everything is so run down. Air conditioning is old and so loud that it was impossible to sleep in with A/C on (but with A/C off the room got too hot). Some of the staff were nice and kind, some not so much.
Location is perfect
Rooms small but to be expected in New York
Close to Lincoln Center and Juilliard. Nice to know you can smoke on the roof. Was pleasantly surprised to learn that they give you free water upon check in. Little things matter! I enjoy the property. I wish they offered a discount to parents and family if Juilliard students!! I have stayed there during the whole 4 years of my daughter’s time there!!!!
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.
