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.

Location is excellent -- across the street from Lincoln Center and within 1-3 blocks of several bus lines and the subway. Very handy for scooting down to Broadway theaters quickly and easily. Staff is pleasant, but not always competent.
Room and entire hotel decor is mostly brown and dark red, including brown wallpaper. This absorbs light instead of reflecting it into the room. But the lamps have low-level light bulbs, to save money, I assume. So, the rooms are poorly lit, even with an overhead light and 3 lamps turned on. Booking.com's list of items in the room I booked on its reservation site included a coffee/tea maker. This is essential for me, and I never book a room without one. But when I got to the room assigned to me by the front desk, there was no coffee maker. When I called housekeeping to get one, I was told that no rooms on that floor are equipped with coffee makers. The implication was that I should live with that. Since I had not requested any particular floor, but had reserved a room with a coffee pot, I told them they either had to send up a coffee maker, or change me to a room that had one. They did the latter. (Although, when I got to the second room, I still had to call housekeeping to get the 'cream and sugar' pacet that's usually with a coffee maker in a hotel room ) But all of this took time away from my vacation. And this hotel and Booking.com need to get their act together about delivering to a customer what's listed for a room on Booking.com's website. The list of room items is useful. But only if it's accurate.

The cost for the night stay was more than you quoted in the booking statement.
We had to change rooms from the initial one give because it was really small and was considered a single not a double.

Just 7 minutes to Central Park Cabs to Times SQ approx $12 Great location with local restaurants for quite nites and cheap taxis to the Hussle and Bussle of the city. You can pick the Big Bus Tour at Columbus Circle which is by the entrance to Central Park (7 mins) and there are shops and great places to eat there too.
