Great location at a reasonable price

Terrific location directly across from Lincoln Center so very convenient to Central Park and the West Side in general. The renovation was very well done, meeting expectations for the boutique hotel genre. Easy bag drop-off for both pre- and post-stay walking around New York.

Great spot

Location and rooms are great. Tries to be a little more upscale than it is (staff attitude, drink prices..) but overall good spot.

West 60's buzz

Room was small, bed was small, but everything was clean and there when you needed it. More than made up for by the lobby decor, the efficient staff, the great Lincoln Center location, and the buzz generated by the club crowd going to the roof-top bar. A very nice experience and good value for the upper West side. N

Nice place, a little disappointing

The rooftop pool is more adequately described as a rooftop puddle, and the food at the pool deck left something to be desired. The cocktails were good and the room was adequate for the money - the shower was extra fancy.

Great location and good food

The location of The Empire was perfect for the theatre and museum weekend we had in New York in June. The hotel, much renovated since my last stay over 10 years ago, decor is "moderne "and there are nice touches but things are worn. Service at the desk was excellent --not much was offered elsewhere.

Not a great place to stay

The room were not that big and the bathroom was the smallest I have ever seen. There was a price tag on everything including to make of tea in the room. The porters were very rude and did not help with our luggage. We would definatley stay there again.

Canada Day in the Big Apple

From the great location to the romantic rooftop bar, the Empire Hotel satisfied us in every way. The room was small but hey, that's insignificant because it was only for sleeping anyway!

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Don't be afraid to walk walk walk all over the place. You'll never get bored. There is a lot to look at in New York. Every place is walking distance if you have the time.
