Where's maintenance?

Would not recommend Mon, Jan 21, 2013
I changed rooms 3 times because there was at least two things broken in each one. In the first there was no place to plug in a computer and the desk lamp didn't work. The second had a broken tv and a missing window shade. And Cable service was down (for which they gave me free breakfast buffet ticket). In the last another lamp was broken and the bathroom sink stopper was broken. The doorman saw I was struggling wind and my bags but did nothing to help. I used to love this hotel, but will no longer stay there or recommend it to my friends and business associates.

LINCOLN, the new restaurant at Lincoln Center, is wonderful!

Good use of small space

Would recommend Sat, Jan 12, 2013
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.

Might be my new go-to hotel in NYC

Would recommend Sun, Dec 30, 2012
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.

Great Location

Would recommend Tue, Dec 11, 2012
Great location right next to Lincoln center. Walking distance to most major sights. A little loud but that's to be expected for NYC. The bed was comfortable and the room size was also decent for the city. No Ice machine and also no complimentary coffee/tea (at least that we saw)

Great Location, OK Hotel

Would not recommend Mon, Dec 10, 2012
The Empire Hotel is ideally located next to Lincoln Center, steps away from central Park and a 15 minute walk from 5th Ave shopping. Rooms have been recently upgraded and are fine, with a comfortable bed. Staff is friendly and helpful But this is an old hotel with an old heating and central air system. the room was very warm, and the poor cooling system could not cool it off. Better values in NYC for the price, with newer hotels.

Thanksgiving Weekend!

Would recommend Mon, Nov 26, 2012
The stay was very nice - and the staff is great. They were having problems with the elevators, which could not support the volume of people, and we had to take a back elevator. The rooms, while comfortable, were VERY small - not much room for more than two bags. Other than that - the location was amazing and the overall experience was great.

Perfect for opera weekend

Would recommend Mon, Nov 19, 2012
The room itself was fairly standard with adequate amenities, but the location is superb for the opera goer being just across the street from the Met The hotel restaurant is very good We entertained four friends royally The pri9ces for everythying are very high, but New York in opera season is always so. We will rerturn next year.
