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.

The location was perfect for me to move my son out of his college dorm across the street
It’s a super nice hotel, but the walls are very thin. I could hear the conversations in both rooms beside us & in the halls.

Location. Across the Lincoln Center and near Colombo’s Circle.
Very small rooms for 2 people. As it is an old hotel it needs some deep cleaning.

Nice location, not very crowded in the streets. Very nice staff, clean rooms and great service.
The pool was closed due to seasonal opening hours. We did not know about this until check-in.

I’m so particular with water pressure lol and the shower was amazing! I’ve stayed in 5 start hotels in NYC and never get a good shower like that! Room was small but clean. Was the perfect location for where we were going. Nice rooftop, bar and lounge areas.
Small but clean and nice

Location was key. Good value for money. Staff helpful. Recommend it. Helpful little things, too, like umbrella in room. Restaurant closed so no room service. Plenty of towels. It was clean--no bugs of any kind.
Bathroom pretty small. That's about it.

Fabulous location to explore Central Park, museums and for Lincoln Centre. Out of the hustle and bustle but only a quick metro ride away to city centre. Great roof top bar.
Staff were quite nonchalant. Rooms were a little tired and needed a freshen up.
