              Excellent location opposite Lincoln Center and close to Columbus Circle. Renovation has been thorough and not a mere facelift as so many other hotels- a new stylish interior including public areas, rooms and bath rooms.

              Staff at reception could be more helpful. Hotel is somewhat dark. Air conditioning works well, but is noisy.

              loation, pleasant staff, trendy rooms

              we didnt have hot water for 2 nights when showering in the morning, the shower was way too cold for me

              Location is excellent, free wi-fi a plus, great rooftop bar

              Apart from the few pluses mentioned above, there isn't much positive to point out. The rooms (we stayed in a standard double) are very small and rather old, the bathroom is tiny, breakfast is awful and very expensive (USD 30 all incl.). A few times no hot water was available when we wanted to take a shower. Staff made a mess with our reservations so eventually for the third night we paid USD 500 (!!!) for this tiny room which is incredibly bad value for money even for NY standards. We would never stay there again.

              A reason to avoid the most beautiful city of the world., A visitor asking for me at front desk was twice answered negatively if iI would stay there, allthough he had right name like the hotel did.hew aited one hour while I was in the room. Very annoying, Further on Empire Hotel was like a lot of New York Hotels outrageously priced. Prices in general compared to a year ago seem to be doubled. A reason to avoid New York.

              Reception desk was very offensive, brutal and client-unfriendly. Other service well instructed was nice!

            • Couple
              6.6

              Rooms was really clean

              Half of rooms have rear windows, and there is kitchen ventilation at the bottom, so rooms smells really bed because smell enters from outside and air-conditioning of kitchen makes a lot lot noise ! Too expensive !

              Nice if you can get very cheap rates with pleasant bar area & bar staff. Good location a block from Central Park. I checked out a night early and found a nicer hotel for less money.

              My first suite had a weird smell and the furniture was scratched and the sofa had a cigarette burn. They moved me to a better room which was fresher. Didn't like the fact the entrance also leads to a nightclub upstairs so doormen with attitude are present in the evenings

              Enjoyed the location and the design of the Hotel.I would recomend it to my friends. My wife and I really enjoyed our 3 night stay, it was fun.

              The washroom could have been designed a bit better but it was fine.Other than that everthing was great.

              The Empire hotel is clean and tidy. It is in a good location and handy to central park and subway. Hotel staff were generally friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable and showers were great.

              We had a noisy room on our first night but to their credit the reception staff were able to get us a better room for the rest of our stay.

              Location! Location! If you are going to Lincoln Center, you can not stay at a more convenient location. We were directly across the street from our event (NYU Graduation @ Lincoln Center). As check out was early, we asked the concierge if we could store our luggage for a few hours, and we were accomodated very kindly. Staff, convenience, location: all were excellent. We would stay @ this hotel any time we are in town.

              location was good, help provided when needed.

              smoking room given even I travelled with child. Or at least there had been smoked earlier. Noise from the next room (only a wall between). the roof spa area was not open, even promised on the web (to be open in may).

              Basically the only good thing in the hotel is its location. 5 min to Columbus Circle and 3 min to Central Park. Not to say that Metropolitain Opera is right across the road. But seriously, nothing more then location. Everything else wont make anyone happy.

              Everything. I did not like anything but location. If anyone will have a 1st floor 113 be prepare not to have any sunlight (or any other daylight) at all. The same should stand for 213 and 313. Very few bathroom space and closet space, though rooms are pretty large for NYC hotels. The hotel's stuff is not sweet and nice at all. Please be aware that concierge leaves at 6 pm and you wont get any information after these hours. There is a club at the rooftop and it attracts a lot of youngsters on fridays and saturdays that looked pretty NJ for me.

              great location and facilities - roof top bar and beautiful lobby/lounge. comfortable bed and quiet room.

              only thing was that they said that the pool was going to open for the season when we were there but kept changing the day and kept saying it will open tomorrow every day. It was quite hot when we stayed and one of the reasons we did book the hotel was because it had a pool for relaxing.

              The pool, but it was not opened. also was not informed. the roof view is nice but unable to see it. was asked to wait on a 45 min line just to get to the roof. wtf.

              Hotel guest should be informed of any part of the hotel that is closed. hotel guest should not wait in line to get to the roof. we are paying guest, not the kids outside that want to get drunk on the roof bar.the rooms are small and was not cleaned properly. I informed the hotel staff went to a movie and came back and still see the dirty glass on the top shelf in teh bathroom. I only stayed there for one night and my wife was with me so I didnt want to make it a big deal. but if I was alone and would not inconvence anyone I know I would have made sure I got my money back. the bath room caulking needed to be redone. it was black, not white. mold all over shower.

              The room was comfortable and near our destination.

              I did not like the fact that there is a $200.00 incidental charge due at check-in. This is not disclosed on your website.
