NYE TRIP

Would recommend Mon, Jan 18, 2016
Great hotel from the door men, all way through to the cleaners. the staff and service were brilliant. Great lobby are with good wifi. Location not central to all the big attractions but it's New York and are never close to anything, and has all the amenities on its door step and the subway a 2 minute walk, and always a taxi available which are reasonably priced. Great hotel.

Money Stollen From Room

Would not recommend Wed, Jan 6, 2016
Hotel claims that we left the door open, yet hotels must have shelf shutting doors. Security used a key to get into the room and stole $400 out of my wallet. Never notified from the hotel about this until I saw my belongings were gone. They have footage of a security guard going into our room while we were out and still said its my fault and they cant do anything about it. They upgraded us from 2 double room to a junior suite.... wasn't any better considering the pull out bed broke when a small girl sat on it. Wouldn't even recommend this hotel to my worst enemy.

Trip to the Met

Would recommend Tue, Dec 22, 2015
The proximity of this hotel to Lincoln Center made it ideal for us to attend several performances at the Met. Great restaurants nearby as well as Central Park and a quick jaunt to the subway. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful throughout our stay. The bed, however, was one of the hardest beds I've ever slept on and any amenities in the room cost extra. Great hotel overall...just a really hard bed and I'm paying for it now.

Great location will give it a try

Would recommend Mon, Dec 14, 2015
The hotel was fine but the room was hot and it took awhile to cool down. Also, the toilet was clogged. They came to fix it but it wasn't fixed the next morning. I would, however, give this nice hotel a second chance. The front desk people were nice and they addressed all issues.

I was hesitant about staying at the Empire after seeing some of the reviews but I think the value and location outweigh the fact that the hotel is in need of a facelift.
