Ching-Tien W. Families with older children Taiwan, August 24, 2015
Great Location but poor staff performance

Location, Location and Location
This is an old hotel with the great location near Central Park. You can just walk to Central Park in the morning if you happen to arrive in New York in the morning and have to wait for the check-in to your room. The staff can be hardly described as nice and friendly when we check-in. When we check-out we were told we couldn't leave our some luggages for a couple days due to the Hotel policy, since we still have to go to Baltimore for a couple days, until one of the manager-like staff GAVE A BIG FAVOR to let concierge to keep our luggage but we have to pay USD5/day per piece, including 3 luggage and 2 small bags and one umbrella, totally USD105 was paid for 3 days. In hospitality business, customer's feeling should be considered beyond the hotel policy. As for this point, the staffs of Empire Hotel have left much to be desired. I wish they can improve next time i check-in this hotel, but I don't think I will stay at the Empire Hotel again.

Clarkson family review

Great location, Excellent Price and excellent staff
We stayed here 8 to 11 June. We booked for 4 nights as our flight was leaving at 10pm and we could keep the room longer than 12oclock to come back and shower and change before heading off. The hotel was clean and tidy, nothing was a problem for the staff. Plenty of towels, toiletries etc and rooms were cleaned and bedding changed every day. We would definitely stay here again, it's right on the edge of Central Park and only a few minutes from Times Square. Smiths restaurant across the road do excellent breakfasts with amazing French toast. The rooms are small if you are sharing, we had 2 double beds for 3 adults a 9year old and a toddler (he normally sleeps with mum and dad anyway) and with luggage it's a bit cramped but that wasn't a problem. I have to say for the price 4 nights here was excellent.

Short break in NYC

The rooms, the pool, the location
Had a great stay, great location, felt the staff could have been a bit more friendly though, the pool deck had just re-opened so was really busy and we couldn't get to it.

Great Location and has a history

That is the problem with hotels with heritage, sometimes they don't move forward in improving themselves enough sometimes. The location was great but staffs were pretty much just goin about their job robotic like. No extras, don't feel the warmth or welcome to New York! enthusiasm.
