- What's Included
Great place to stay in NYC, location perfect, great service, if you go on summer time the terrace is perfect, we hace some trouble with de a/c but they change our room right away. The bar is excellent, wifi works fine
If you read the past reviews, one theme is very apparent, and this that the staff could not be friendlier or more helpful. The doormen greet you with a smile and welcome you. If you need a cab, directions are just want to people watch with them, they are a great bunch. The front desk agents are exceptional and handled our early check-in without any fuss or fanfare, which was greatly appreciated. Any negativity I read in the reviews would revolve around the general age of the hotel. This is not a new hotel, and it simply exudes warmth, history and a certain "patina" that comes with aging gracefully. The rooms certainly have been updated along with the lobby and everything else so meet the needs of most travelers. If you are very picky, then you will need to spend 3 or 4 times as much money to find something that will make you happy. The roof top BAR and POOL is unique and sadly underused and underutilized. It is a little odd to get up there and I think that causes the problem. The overall location of the hotel fantastic. You are 1 block from Central Park, across the street from the Lincoln Center and a few blocks from the Museum of Natural History. Restaurants of all sorts are within walking distance and a Starbucks is attached to the building. We took a cab to the 911 Memorial and it was about $50 round trip. All in all, The Empire Hotel is a great NYC Hotel in a great safe neighborhood with everything you need at your fingertips.
Great if you are hung over, but if you are older, the place is way too dark. Beds need updating with better pillows. Location is a little far from mid-town. Staff was friendly. Room was clean. The sky bar staff could be a little nicer. Hotel needs to be updated.
Every time I stay at the Empire which is 2-3 a year, I notice positive changes. The staff is very friendly and goes the extra mile to make certain that your stay is pleasant and meets all expectations. The front desk folks, especially Pasquale, are wonderfully patient in advising the best restaurants, directions, etc. The location is also well-suited for moving around the city. I start my day with a walk in Central Park before catching a nearby subway for any appointments. The price is also a good value given the competition in the neighborhood.
A sister trip to watch ABT's Misty Copeland dance Swan Lake at The Met, Lincoln Center. The Empire Hotel location could not be beat on this occasion! Special recognition to Pasquale, a great first impression at Front Desk check-in. He is professional and friendly. Thank you.
