This hotel is currently being investigated as illegal by the NYC government. Tenants have complained of harassment by management and those allegations were sustained by a judge. Like so many places in NYC it has a nice facade but is a dump inside. Until they get the legal mess straightened out I would not stay in this place again.

I read about many unhappy travelers slagging off this hotel. They might be right as I can't prove them wrong. To be honest I can't praise the Imperial Court Hotel all the way, but I can't have bad words either. My overall experience with this place was more than decent and I would recommend it if you asked me. I... More

The lobby looks great. Unfortunaly that's the only positive thing I can say about this hotel. The staff isn't helpful or nice, there is no breakfest available, no baggie-boys and the rooms are decent at best. I got a room at the 11th floor (the elevetor is just ten floors). In the first night I woke up and heard some... More

Very expensive! No breakfast offered.Rude staff indeed.Furnishing ready to collapse. Otherwise the room was clean something I can't say for the rest of hotel, if it really is a hotel I got the feeling people - students were renting rooms long term.

The entrance is very ornate and fancy. And that's where it stops. The rooms are small, and not all of them have a bathroom en suite. I did, but it was so small that I had to squeeze my legs under the basin in order to sit on the toilet. Small kitchenette is not bad. The furnishings (bed, cupboards, desk,... More

My friend and I stayed at this 'hotel' for 8 nights and from the first hour into checking in we wanted to pack our bags and never retun. The concierge was incredibly rude and unaccomodating. He spoke to us as though we didnt understand a word of English and was very disrespectful. On top of that the rooms were attrocious.... More

Really great location. Had to change location from Chelsea to somewhere uptown due to Hurricane Sandy and found this place. From the get go, the staff were really helpful. Some guy called Chris was really helpful when we had called asking about the hotel. The rooms are very small though but at least there is a kitchenette!the house keepers do... More

This is by far, the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. This hotel should be condemned. I have to stay here 14 days because our house in Rockaway Park was completely destroyed by the hurricane. As someone else said, 1 star is too much for this hotel. The entrance to the hotel, and the lobby look amazing, you would... More

How come all the easy book.com guests at this hotel have good things to say about the dive.....the place is still a dive. It's dirty, unfriendly, and there are far better places around. I didn't bother checking the hot water. It's dirty dirty dirty......great area but this hotel should be closed......there is no excuse... For such appalling place
