We reviewed this hotel online and booked it because of the great reviews that were already out there. However, so much more needed to be said about this hotel. We stayed here for several nights over July 4th 2013. We had an awesome room overlooking the shore. The staff were amazing, so accommodating and friendly and went to great lengths... More

Couldn't be happier with our stay at the Empress Hotel on Saturday, 1/11. Room 430 was clearly recently renovated with an extra comfortable king sized bed piled high with pillows and covered in thick cotton linen. There were granite topped tables and a comfy chair to sit and view the huge waves crashing into the shore. The room and hotel... More

Hello, NYE at The Empress and Club Paradise are always a great time and get bigger every year. You do have to book rooms early before they sell out, but that is because you will have the best New Year ever!!! Hopefully next year we will see you again, and maybe before then. Thank you for the positive feedback Management More

The Empress Hotel was a great to stay for an overnight visit. We couldn't believe how close it was to the Stone Pony as well as the beach and boardwalk in Asbury, Park. Theroom was clean, quiet and had a balcony which was an added bonus for us. I would definitely stay here again!

Never stayed at the Empress before, last time I'd even paid attention to it was about 10 years ago or so and it's great location aside, much like a lot more of the boardwalk area was at the time, it was a rather sad looking ol' gal from the outside. Came in for a special event this weekend, keeping fingers... More

My wife and I went to the Empress in early September, 2013. Driving from the Parkway, the area doesn't look very promising ("Where are you taking me?" my wife said), but don't let that dissuade you. Once you get to the hotel, things look a lot better, although the lobby is simple to the point of meager. There were some... More
