Not worth the price”
I have stayed in a lot of hotels in New York to have a comparison . If you like a nice room.. this is not the hotel for you. It was like a closet and the shower does not have a door .. water gets everywhere . My husband is an engineer and said it was made for a door they just decided for whatever reason not to put one on. Staff is nice and they have a great outside rooftop bar. Also , I personally liked the location but would not stay there again due to the room.. hope this helped.

Great hotel and location. A little noisy at night but had a lovely time.”
Great hotel. I lived on the UWS for several years so I have known of the Empire and had drinks there several times, so I knew the quality and location were great. Room was super clean and had great linens. Only complaint: Our room was on the Lincoln center side, which is where the service entrance was so there were garbage trucks and deliveries that made a lot of noise. It was an amazing deal for a weeknight stay in January, so not much to complain about. But if I paid a more seasonal rate I probably would have asked to move to a different room. Would def stay there again though!

Would Stay Again”
I was very impressed with the location and price. The pool is way smaller than it seems in photos. The rooftop bar was advertised to close at 10pm however when we arrived just before 9pm they told us they were closing. It was also closed on the Saturday night for a private function which was not advertised at all. This was disappointing because rooftop drinks was something we were looking forward to in the "City that never sleeps"... It would appear that on this occasion, it did sleep... at 9pm nonetheless... Other than this I was very impressed with the hotel as a whole :)

Hotel just near the park”
The hotel is not located in the most crowded tourist area but near to the metro and Central Park. Staffs are friendly. The only problem that I get room near the main road it is quite noisy even in the night time.

Outdated”
The location was ok for tourist activities however the hotel was very outdated. Our room looked over a central courtyard which was filled with the air conditioning system for the hotel. There was no natural light in our room. We were on the first floor & the noise from the air conditioning system was constant and very loud, particularly at night. Our room was far too hot & required a call to maintenance to fix. I wouldn't choose to stay at the hotel again.

Great hotel for the price ”
We loved the location of the hotel! The rooftop bar was absolutely fantastic as well as the staff were very nice. However, the room was unscenely warm so we had a bit of a hard time sleeping. The A/C was off because I was winter
