Plush beds, superb design and a rooftop pool and lounge with stellar views make our guests feel positively kingly at the Empire Hotel. The Empire Hotel offers 420 richly appointed rooms on 11 floors. The warmly decorated rooms assimilate the earth tones from Central Park, just a block away, and the stately modernism of Lincoln Center, across the street. Lush beds are dressed with down duvets and fine Belgian linens, and bathrooms include teak-floor showers with tropical rainfall showerheads. Rooms also include flat-panel LCD TVs and mp3 docks. Wi-Fi is available for a fee in rooms and is free in the lobby. Get a good glimpse of Gotham from the rooftop plunge pool, open seasonally. The hotel also has a fabulous rooftop bar with terrific views of Lincoln Center and the Upper West Side, plus a fitness center, a luxury day spa and a concierge. There's a discreet, well-designed bar off the main lobby. The Empire is just a block from the leafy expanse of Central Park and less than a block east of Lincoln Center. LaGuardia is eight miles away, and JFK and Newark are both 16 miles from the hotel. Valet parking is available (for a fee). Two subway stops are within three blocks. Time Warner Center and the Shops at Columbus Circle are a four-block stroll south.

Pleasant
Once we were in the room we originally booked, it was spacious with a great view over Lincoln Center. The initial room they presented us was cramped and unappealing, esp the bathroom.
Staff were surly. They are taught to ask "Who did you speak to?" when responding to the fact our requests went unheard. I will not stay here again as a result of hotel management.

I liked almost everything. The hotel room was clean and quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful. I’d stay there again.
I didn’t like the prices of food at the bar in the lobby but there are nice restaurants near the hotel.

Wonderful
We stayed in 2 different rooms and would definitely recommend the the Junior Suite. This room had a nice space living area with chairs and room 1028 (top floor) had a lovely view from each of the windows. The bathroom was spacious and great shower. The first room we had was classed as a King double but was quite compact and the shower room was so small with a petit sink that was hard to get to due to the size. But overall both rooms were comfortable and the heating/AC worked fine. I used the gym facility which was good. Overall great location - opposite Lincoln Centre where the opera is. Furthermore it is served by metro stations 66th (line 1 Red and 59th St - Columbus Circus for quite a few lines that take you all around manhattan to all the key sites. The location was next to Central Park n easy walk to Natural History Museum.
The WiFi was weak and sometimes lacking. Should be better for a hotel like this in manhattan

Okay
Good location, close to midtown and close to Central Park. Nice area, not so crowded.
I booked a superior king room but it looks like a poor room, I expected a much better room as it looks much better in the pics, quite small, not very clean and quite old, i needed to ask them if it was really a superior king room and they confirmed me that it was....but definitely didn’t look like it.

Great location and great room. Staff is lovely, amenities are good.
