Recently, my husband, myself and friends rolled into Asbury Park and needed a place to stay for the night. We were pleasantly surprised when we came to the Empress! The hotel staff was very nice and accommodating. It was Pride Weekend and the town was full! The desk even called another hotel to check availability for us. They did get... More

I have been planning a girls weekend in June for the last several months and the staff could not be more accommodating. Lauren has been personally helping me to schedule, move rooms around, make sure all of our rooms are together (WE have 8 rooms so far!), etc. We are very much looking forward to our stay here-in fact, I...

I stayed at the Empress March 23 and 24. Yes the rooms are dated but they are comfortable. Yes it houses a night club and it can be very noisy. Still, I slept great. I loved the location, the balconey and the front desk. It was well worth the price. I already made another reservation for this summer.

The absolute best part of this establishment is the front desk staff. We had the good fortune to deal with 2 different staff members and both experiences were first rate. Those two individuals were helpful and professional. As for the rest of it... I think one of the most important things anyone should know before they even consider staying there... More

My family has stayed here several times and has enjoyed it both times. The accomadtions are not four star by any means, but it is a clean and comfortable place and the prices are very reasonable, especially off season. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. We love to travel with our dogs and they are great about it... More

I  Stayed here with my husband in January for a quick getaway from NYC only an hour and 20 min from the city. The location is amazing right by the beach, a unbelievable view of the sunrise, We stayed on the 4 floor its the best view of the ocean walking distance to good restaurants, bars and clubs. The room... More

I hadn't been to Asbury Park for many, many years and wasn't expecting much in the way of a great hotel experience, especially in the deep chill of January. Wow, was I wrong. We were happily surprised that the majestic, glowing green-and-purple tower in the distance was indeed the place we had booked. Killer location across the street from the... More

I cannot express the weekend that we had at the Empress in words. Seven of us got two hotel rooms there for a wild Labor Day weekend and I do not think that we had any idea just how wild our weekend was going to be. First of all, the non-Jerseyites (including myself) were shocked at the concept of **paying... More
