Go somewhere else ”
Our ac did not work, we were given a fan not even an offer to change rooms. Any other guest we spoke to we also miserable during their stay. I will never stay at empire again, or recommend it to a friend.

Friendly staff and great location make up for small flaws”
Friendly staff and great location make up for teeny, tiny bathrooms and snooty hostess at rooftop bar. One bizarre thing: a note in the room says the first four Keurig cups are on them. But the four they provided included one coffee, one vanilla coffee (blech) one hot chocolate and one tea. Every day I had to exchange them for coffee. Maybe ask the guests for their preference?

Empire Hotel”
All was OK. But air conditioner cut out on last day, so it was really hot. Room was old with a cheap renovation. Haven't been to NYC before so nothing to compare it to. Overall staff very friendly and helpful and breakfast was good. Cost for breakfast is about $20. US extra. Pool is tiny.

Worst place to go”
Water leakage for shower and the room temperature is not accurate at all and there are no blankets what so ever. If you request something at the front desk, they take 3-4 phone calls to have them actually do something.

Just across Lincoln Center”
stayed here because we were celebrating new year at lincoln center, but the rates around this time (in every part of manhattan) is just atrocious. but we had no choice. loved cafe fiorello which is also quite near, where we celebrated the new year. instead of braving the cold and the crowds at times square.

MY FAVE HOTEL IN NYC”
Have been to NYC quite a few times and keep going back to this hotel for its value for money. Very funky hotel with leopard skin chairs in foyer and excellent bar area. The hotel is located on the upper West side, near Columbus Circle. Very quiet to sleep at night. Around 10 min walk to Times Square, 5th Avenue etc. Central Park is a stones throw. The staff at this hotel would have to be one of the best I have encountered, quick, polite, knowledgeable and friendly. There is an abundance of excellent restaurants at your doorstep. The hotel rooms are a good size for NYC, clean, modern and provide everything you would need to make your stay the best. I would highly recommend this hotel to solo travellers, couples and families. Just love this hotel. Do yourself a favour and book at this hotel when in NYC, you will not be disappointed!

Great location, but very old hotel even with a renovated room”
I'd like to start off by saying the rooftop bar was excellent. The food was 10/10 & we had great service from a bartender named Gabriel! The room was clean, but even with a newly renovated room you could tell the hotel is very old. The service was pretty average too, I am not fussy since I work in customer service but I did expact more. No Wifi in the rooms even though upon booking we checked that it would. We were told it wasn't working right now but we could purchase it for a daily fee. They didn't know when it would be fixed. The pool was under renovations during the heat of summer. Another shame. Basically, the hotel was fine but after staying at our second hotel I look back & notice more & more about The Empire Hotel that was medeocer.

Defective AC During Summer in NYC”
Sooo they put me in a room with a non working AC at the peak of New York summer... This was my experience after my 23 hour flight from Asia - get in a room that's hot and no AC and a technician had to come and try to fix it to no avail so I had to repack my stuff and then have them transfer me to a room with a defective lock. The next day they upgraded me - it's still a small room but the AC is HALF WORKING - it's blowing air but it's not effectively cooling the entire room. So that was my experience. Great location though, near Central Park.

Disappointing!”
I only booked this hotel cause of the pool. Nor the hotel or the travel webpages advises that the pool is closed. They tell you upon arrival. You can imagine my entire holiday was ruined, when you pay for a hotel with a pool in Manhattan and was looking forward to that in the heat. The hotel nor the staff cared.

Disgusting”
The pool was closed. Only reason I booked there was because it had a pool. The building had wiring work being done and they didn't even clean the space in front of the rooms. There was sheet rock debris in the floor in front of our room for the entire duration of our stay. Even after I spoke with the front desk about it multiple times. That hotel is atrocious.
