It was all good

Would recommend Sun, Oct 5, 2014
We stayed in a deluxe room which is bigger than a norm room...worth it because we had friends in the smaller room who said theirs was smaller than small. Great hotel staff, elevators are old n slow. Location was Grade A!

Entertainment hint

Lincoln Center is across the street and great food all around...

Great local and cosy room

Would recommend Sun, Oct 5, 2014
The location couldn't get better -right across the street from the Met Opera- and the rooms are small but very cosy and functional. The bathrooms are getting tired (I stayed twice this week in two different rooms and both bathrooms were like this) - the paint on the door is peeling, probably because both of the shower heads spray water all over the bathroom and need to be fixed. Other than that, great room, great hotel.

Great Hotel in Lincoln Center

Would recommend Sat, Oct 4, 2014
Stayed overnight at The Empire with a girlfriend for a Ladies Night Out in the City. Hotel was perfect. Very clean and comfortable, and close to everything. Will definitely stay again.

Good stay

Would recommend Fri, Oct 3, 2014
The hotel is located one block from Central Park, Lincoln Center and three blocks from Columbus Circle. It's walking distance to Time Square-area and all the Broadway shows. The room and bathroom was not very big but well equipped, nice and clean. AC was alright, but really noisy. Try to get a room high up in the building as the traffic is close. I would choose the Empire again when visiting NYC for the price it was well worth it.

Good for Lincoln Center stay

Would recommend Thu, Sep 11, 2014
Perfect location if you want to do anything at Lincoln Center. Good P.J. Clarke's downstairs. The room and bed were fine, the bathroom a bit awkward. Good place to stay a night or two

Great location, quality of room is just fair

Would recommend Thu, Sep 4, 2014
It doesn't get any better as far as location. In the middle of everything. We watched an outdoor opera every night. Down the street from Central park. It was a warm week in NYC. The air conditioning struggled to keep up. the workmanship of the room was only fair. It was really nice to have a small pool on the roof to cool off. The view from there was amazing as well.

Nightlife hint

Lincoln Center/Central park are very close by.

Empire Hotel Labor Day Weekend

Would recommend Tue, Sep 2, 2014
We got to the hotel earlier. Our room wasn't ready however I asked if there were any rooms we could switch into and the staff member made the switch and got me into a room right away! Rooftop Pool/Bar were awesome and staff was very attentive up top. Overall great day/night would stay again and recommend to others.

Great location!

Would recommend Thu, Aug 28, 2014
Really enjoyed staying at the Empire Hotel. The location is central to all NY hotspots. Arrived early in morning and staff gave us an early check in! Definitely will stay there again.

Money saver

Central Park is so nice to walk around... And good way to get a work out in.

Not what I thought

Would recommend Sun, Aug 17, 2014
Well the room was very small, didn't have a door to the shower, not sure what that was about. The staff seems a little to busy to deal with anyone, the pool was freaking a joke and way to small....nice rooftop scene, the Hotel seems worn out all ways around. The Location was great, all walking distance to Time Square the Wax Museum and just fun all around the area hands down. The Hotel has its ups and downs but it does its job. I ain't mad.

Nightlife hint

NYC never sleeps and the Night Life is a wonderful experience.
