Great time - convenient to Lincoln Center

Good time in NYC - usually stay downtown but there is so much to do in this area as well

Might be my new go-to hotel in NYC

The rooms are quiet, comfortable, and stylish-- and a good size for New York City hotels. The beds were excellent-- very firm with great linens. The hotel is across the street from Lincoln Center and its subway station stop. Staff was friendly and courteous throughout the stay. For the price, it's a great value for NYC. I've stayed in comparably priced hotels in the city that were half the size, noisy, and/or less conveniently located. Definitely would recommend and stay again.

Good use of small space

Perfect location for Lincoln Center. Basic room with one bed was diminutive even for NYC. Quiet, laptop-sized safe, some luxury touches, but no fridge or bathtub. Good desk services, room service, 24-hr cardio room. Fine for a night or two if you're spry and pack light.

A Great " New York Experience"

Staff were welcoming. Cool , dark, exotic decor. Really comfy beds and exceptionally quiet. Perfect location. Food places on either side - convenient ( and good food! ) Would definitely go back and recommend. note: Short people beware: the hangers, towels and tissues were unreachable. I believe it was designed by a giant!!! But it was fun trying......

Great stay

My first impression was absolutely a good one. The location was ideal, close but not too close to all the action. The restaurant was a little pricey but worth every penny. I would actually look forward to dinner every night. The cold Seafood platter was out of this world. I would definitely recommend The Empire Hotel to my friends.

Near Lincoln center

Location couldn't be better, with helpful staff and comfortable room. Though the added touch of wine and bottled water stocked in the room for sale was a nice touch, the price was stunning ( figi water, small, $7). But because of the location, anything desired was around a corner. Good memories from this stay.

Great hotel

The Empire Hotel was great. Bars and restaurants in the hotel were outstanding. The only thing is that the shower would drain and it was a walk out shower so it flooded my bathroom and part of my room.

Good hotel for Lincoln Center events

The Empire has been renovated, but the room was small and the bathroom tiny, but adequate. Comfortable bed and blackout drapery helped to ensure a good night's sleep. The location is perfect if you're attending a Lincoln Center event, as it's just across the way on 63rd and Broadway.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Perfect hotel for Lincoln Center event. Also close to great shops and restaurants at Time Warner Center on Columbus Circle, and about a mile from the American Museum of Natural History.
