- What's Included
We didn't spend much time in the hotel but the staff were brilliant, bringing us surprise champagne for us to celebrate our wedding and the whole place was beautiful to be in and the room was lovely absolutely no complaints, only minutes from some great pizza slices and Central Park!
One of my son's and I decided to do a weekend in New York to take in as much theater as we could. We were able to book the Hotel Empire , which is just across from the Lincoln Center. Also, you are very close to Columbus Circle and Central Park. We had driven into the city and there is a parking garage nearby with a hotel rate of $40 a day, which is reasonable rate in NYC. Both of us like to walk and enjoyed strolling around the neighborhood. The room was clean and the staff was great. The shower was fantastic for someone tall like myself, the shower head comes directly out of the ceiling. However, there is only one shower door making it difficult to keep all the water inside the shower. (this is not by accident, I asked the staff and all the rooms only have one door) The room was NYC size, meaning that space is at a premium, and the bathroom is very cozy. Our view from the window was great. The beds were comfortable and we slept well.
New York is a big city. There are plenty of five star hotels to go around. The Empire isn't one of them, but it's really a great place to stay. If you want to be in the lap of Lincoln Center (it's right across the street) and conveniently close to Central Park and all the museums around it, this is a good choice. The room and bathroom was adequately sized. The shower was hard to turn off, but everything was clean, the staff was helpful, and the location was fabulous. We liked the chowder house too. It's nice to have it so close. The neighborhood includes a few food vendors where you can get fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, and pastries to save a little money and time. There's a Starbucks on the corner as well. I'd say visiting New York for me is like being on a ship. I'm not there for the room. The Empire is in the right place and is safe and comfortable. I loved it.
This is my go-to Hotel ... while it can be crowded at the Lobby at times, nothing beats being next to Lincoln Center, Columbus Circle, Central Park and so much more. Last week I stayed there for work - 3 nights, and the fourth time in four years. Nothing is perfect and what made this stay special was the service from the housekeeping department (8th floor) and Rasheed, from Security.You see, after I checked out, I remembered that I had not emptied the safe. I returned after one hour and Rasheed had already retrieved my things. Things of great value - literally. Silly me for not taking them out.Therefore, it is not about the number of stars. It is about the experience especially when things go wrong. Rasheed was there. Thank you so much Rasheed.
I had a very good stay here. My trip was planned around opera, so being across the street from Lincoln Center made the Empire Hotel the perfect location. The doormen, front desk staff (especially Anthony), and housekeeping staff were all pleasant, helpful, and efficient. My room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. I will definitely stay here again!
