    Location! Nice room and comfortable bed.

    The A/C unit was unbearably loud. No street noise just the A/C. Had to sleep with ear plugs. No way to turn it lower or off w/o unplugging. It’s my only complaint.

    The hotel was fine. Bed was comfortable. Close to two subway stations. Lobby is beautiful and so is the rooftop bar although it is the most expensive bar I have ever been to.

    We paid beforehand, and while checking in they said: "it looks like you're all paid for, so we just need a card for incidents." When we checked out they said, "It will just be $20 for a resident fee"... Hmm... wasn't that what the $160 nightly fee was for? Where has transparency gone? What in god's name is a resident fee? Sounds like something they just make up to get more money out of you which is most likely exactly what it is. I absolutely cannot stand when hotels do this and I have never understood the reason behind not being upfront about costs. We left pretty pissed about that. Also, there was no coffee in the room which is the first time I've ever been to a hotel without coffee in the room. Even the Days Inn has coffee in the room.

    The location was great and the staff was very friendly.

    The paint on the bathroom door was peeling. The AC was not working and was a huge wet puddle. Plus they charged us extra $30/night for a room with 2 beds even know I booked a 1-2 bed room on Kayak.

About Empire Hotel


Long considered an icon in the New York area, the Empire Hotel continues to impress guests today. Even it’s most “standard” room is anything but “standard.” The lofty architectural features of the surrounding area are reflected in the everything from the tall headboard to the subtly elongated bedside lamps.

The sense of style does not stop within the walls of the rooms. The hotel lobby, with its triple-height ceilings, angular tile patterns, all tactfully set alongside the curves of larger than life drapes and overhead light fixtures remind guests of the grandiose nature of both the hotel and the city it reflects.

The dining options impress as well. P.J. Clarke's continues to offer its classically prepared American food. There may be no more iconic place to grab a burger and oysters than in one of their comfortable seats. The option to dine while amidst the clouds is always tempting for guests as well, with a jaunt up to The Empire Rooftop.

Any meeting or event is automatically graced with a touch of class when it’s done at at the Empire Hotel. Crystal ballrooms, complete with white and cream-shaded hues, can elevate guests’ events so they match the style of those present.

A stroll on the pool deck allows more than just a dip in the water. Guests can take in elevated views of Lincoln Center, Central Park, the Upper West Side, and beyond.

The Empire Hotel is a mainstay of the classic New York Experience. It provides a great launching point for exploring the city of New York or the possibilities the city presents.
