Great location, OK room

Would recommend Wed, Aug 5, 2015
Room was small but well appointed, comfortable bed and excellent location. Roof bar/pool incredible view, but very clubby (noisy, crowded and rowdy) on Fri and Sat nights. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Bathroom was very small and not very nice. No place to set anything down and in the shower I could barely turn around ! PS..I am 5 ft 7 and slender !!

Love the location, several excellent restaurants around the hotel, the bar and lobby area is so comfortable and cool, a block from the subway. Rooftop is great!

Nice atmosphere and great location!

Would recommend Wed, Jul 15, 2015
I really enjoyed my stay at The Empire Hotel near Columbus Circle in New York. I received a very nice greeting from the bell man and I found everyone friendly and courteous. The bar was quaint and cozy and the bar tender mixed a terrific drink and was personable too! The elevators were a bit slow but not a huge deal. The rooms were small but very nice and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was tiny but clean and the shower water ran out due to only a half shower door. That was a nuisance. The food was also good and the rooftop bar was great! The location was terrific and overall we were very pleased. We'll be back!

AMAZING!!! LOVED THIS HOTEL & STAFF

Would recommend Wed, Jul 15, 2015
Me and my daughter stayed at The Empire last summer and absolutely LOVED it. I will admit I was very hesitant because some of the reviews I read were not very good, but I AM SO GLAD we stayed there. The check in was super easy the room was small, but come on its NY city and that is pretty common. The staff was amazing and always answered our questions and helped us out. We spoke to the concierge just about everyday and he was a huge help and super friendly and patient with us. I would DEFINITELY recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

Pool was tiny but kids had fun- we were upgraded to a larger room thanks!)- view was awesome from the top- food/drinks were spendy. We extended our stay- hotel gave us 15 off!

Updates needed

Would not recommend Fri, Jun 12, 2015
While the hotel is in a good location, it needs some renovations. The shower floods the bathroom unless you use the handheld. The heat was almost non existent unless you used a space heater which then caused the power to go out.

Nice location, iffy otherwise

Would not recommend Mon, Apr 20, 2015
This place is used to having a captive audience, being the only hotel near Lincoln Center- the location is great. my experience was that I needed to be extremely insistent to get the kind of service I have come to expect in other, supposedly lesser hotels. When I travel, I need certain accommodations for severe dust, perfume, and feather/down allergies. I was assured these would be taken care of before our arrival. Not only was the room not ready when we arrived, but we needed to wait about an hour an a half before I had a total meltdown about being prepared for our evening out (after traveling all day). The kind desk clerk, Julia, finally put us into another room so we could shower and dress for our theatre call time, and promised that the room would be prepared properly after we went out for the evening. It was, and they did a fine job, but I had to have a fit to get it. *Everything* in the room had a fee, including the coffee- I've never been in a hotel that did not provide free coffee in the room, but maybe this is something new (?). You could not hang anything longer than a shirt in the wardrobe, and even shirts dragged on the shelf below. The elevators were incredibly slow and rickety. One was out of service for a day. The shower was weird- it had only a half-wide door that did not close. I'm not a rambunctious bather, but each shower I took required several towels to mop up, even with extreme care. I would probably not choose to stay here again, unless I had no choice. The location is great but is insufficient justification for the lesser quality provided.
