Kristen Chesney and her staff provided excellent customer service! It was a great weekend, and this Hotel even takes dogs... which made things a pleasure that I did not have to board my pet.. ~Christopher Huntington, New York

Empress is really a jewel of a place in Asbury Park. There are comfortable rooms, clean, and great service from top to bottom. We had a very good experience and will return. My wife, our 4 yr. old daughter and myself stayed three nights, M/T/W. The beach is just across the street, which is exactly what I wanted. We had... More

This was my husband and my first time staying at the Empress. At check in we were greeted by Doug who was wonderful. We had requested an ocean view room knowing that some of the rooms that overlooked the pool could be noisy from the bar downstairs. We were thrilled that the noise wasn't an issue as I had originally... More

cWe loved our stay at the Empress. It is clean, reasonably priced, dog friendly, and on the beach, yes. But it was the little things that made the difference. The staff went out of their way to be helpful at every opportunity. We asked for a fridge; they brought it right away and waived the usual fee. The parking lot... More
