Not quite what we'd hoped for

No waste bin in bathroom, no bath mat after day one, not enough hangers in cupboard. Hideous, drab decor colours. Friendly but rather inefficient staff. Poor website/room information proved to be incorrect in several areas.

Great location for Lincoln Center

Everything was fine-- staff were nice, usual small room though I have had smaller in NY, not a great view, and bathroom was not as clean as some other hotels but all in all a good solid experience. Less street noise than some other stays elsewhere, too. Very convenient to Lincoln Center and Columbus Circle.

Great Hotel and Location

Facilities were very clean, great view of the city. The maids missed cleaning our room one of the days, but staff was very prompt in bringing needed towels.

forget the bathing suit

Forgot to say...The pool was a joke. It is about two regular size bath tubs wide and about 4 long. Not sure how they got away with calling this a pool.

Interesting experience

Tiny room. Tiny bathroom. If had been a large person, would not have been able to move around either. Overkill to have such a small refrig stocked with the surplus of alcohol. Too high price tray of "amenities" available to purchase. Cigarette butts on window ledge. Next building right up against our window at "V" angle. Difficult to regulate room temperature. Heard elevator sounds during night. Too much lighted electrical equipment in room at night. No coffee in hotel for AM. No shower door to close. Bed comfortable. Called twice to get ice to room needed for sprained ankle.

Brief but good

We had only one night at the Empire Hotel but we were pleased with the cleanliness and decor when we walked in after a long journey. The room was small but well equipped with everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and quiet both of which were exactly what we wanted. Too bad be had to scoot out early as the thought of using the pool was very appealing on that hot July day.

Not bad but not great

We had a fairly decent stay at the empire. We only stayed for one day but it took more than 2 hours for our room to be ready. We decided to pass the time at the pool on the roof. It's not so much a pool as it is patio with a kiddy splash area. The pool is maybe 12 feet long 5 feet wide and 6 children complete occupy the space. The view was nice but the small size of the patio and the way they have it arranged you can appreciate it. For what you pay it is not as nice as what you might fight a few blocks further away.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The open air night bus from time square doesn't completely fill up as they try to keep schedule. So you get a much more personel tour of the city all lit up and less tourist intervention.
