The nicest, most helpful,caring staff

The hotel is absolutely beautiful, and just had EVERYTHING we could possible want or need! But what I will take away from this trip is that there really ARE nice people in New York. When we checked in, the person at the desk couldn't find our reservation. [...]He immediately had a manager,[...] check on this for us. [...] went over and above to locate AND correct the problem. He also upgraded our room for the inconvenience. Absolutely fantastic experience! Thank you!

Always a great stay!

LOVE staying at the Empire hotel. Everyone is always pleasant and the rooms are super comfy and chic. Can't wait to come back and stay at the end of June!

Spur of the Moment Romantic Getaway

The decor in the lobby is very relaxing...However, the decor in the room was a whole other story...It did not really make sense to me...I also had an issue with the shower stall not having a door and only a half glass partition...The floor was always getting wet...Housekeeping took a long time to get upstairs to us with simple things and there was NO ice machine in the hotel...

Save money on breakfast and go to Starbucks or Duane Reade around the corner. Duane Reade is open 24hrs!

Nice

The hotel is nice and great location. Regular parade of tourists taking photos from Gossip Girls, but overall a nice place. Bar drinks very watered down during our last trip, but not a reason not to return.

Great family visit

Went to visit family in NYC. Hotel is a very convenient location to them and many of the wonderful things in NYC. Would certainly stay at the hotel again, but the functionality design of the bathroom is horrible. There is so little depth in the sink that is a challenge to even get your hands under the faucet and it usually splashes when first turned on. All hotel rooms in NYC are small so every bit of shelf space is precious yet the toilet tank and the toilet itself both have sloped tops so that anything placed on top of either cover has a good chance of sliding off. Lousy design and engineering.

Great location!

Spent two nights over Christmas and loved it. Directly across the street from Lincoln Center, steps from Columbus Circle and Central Park. Charming decor and exceptional staff. A bargain for the location.

Location, Location

The Empire Hotel is in a wonderful spot -- right across from Lincon Center, right on Broadway, away from the crowds but still central. The decor is a bit pretentious, and the hotwl is showing some wear. The wallpaper had separated slightly in our room, and the radiator rattled. One towel was frayed. But the staff are really nice.

Have breakfast in the atrium of the Lincoln Center ticketsplace just a few yards south on Broadway. Much less crowded than Starbucks and very pleasant
