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.

I liked the friendly staff, they really tried to make everything up- but the hotel itself doesn’t have the options to do so. The lobby bar and the rooftop bar are really amazing! The location is really nice - close to Columbus square, upper Westside (many great restaurants and less tourists)
The rooms were horrible, the lightening wasn’t even close to what we are used to from other hotels. You can’t even put your proper make up on. There was fungus in the mini bar (which was never filled), there was dust everywhere, and urine marks in the matrasse. The shower was the same! Once you switch it on- there were several small pieces on the ground (guess it was jointing mortar). However I enclose pictures. They helped me change my room three times- but every room was similar. The staff was very helpful and friendly- but the hotel itself doesn’t have the opportunity to serve the way it should. It’s just old and needs an overall renovation.

Birthday celebration trip with my boyfriend. Very good and practical location near to Central Park, Columbus Circle and 20 min walking from Times Square. The hotel services are very good as well, lobby bar, rooftop lounge and breakfast. The rooms are nice and comfy! Lovely staff.
The room that we were given the 1st/2nd night had a problem with the air conditioning system, we tried to turn it off several times but didn't work, it was very noisy and vapor was coming out all night, the technician didn't solve it and was very rude. Fortunately the guy at the front desk solved the problem efficiently.

The location. The quick check in, check out. The security, the ability to store bags. Pj Clarke’s, access to lots of food choices, museums, park.
We went to the rooftop lounge and were overcharged for our drinks twice. We were able to remove one charge but not the other. I will never run a tab anywhere again ever because of it.

Very Poor
No breakfast at this location
They charged me excessive tax on the room after I left and billed me for a bar tab at the roof deck that I did not incur. They are currently investing the bill and were very rude and not prompt to answer my inquires. When I checked in they gave me a room with a view of brick walls and generator. The noise was unbearable. They moved me after I complained but made me wait for four hours before a another room was available. They were also rude when I questioned their bill and didn't give me a prompt resolution and instead indicated I had to wait for their investigation regarding the alleged pool deck charge.

The location of the hotel is superb! I really enjoy the view of Lincoln Center.
The pillow was too hard and thick. I requested a flatter pillow but never received it. Also there was no dresser in the room so there were no drawers to put things in.

Breakfast was very good with lots of options. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Location was very good with lots of local restaurants.
Room on street side, lower level had very loud street noise. Room on upper level, "inner" was very crowded.
