The bathroom is very tiny - don't reserve here if you're claustrophobic. The bathroom is designed for small/ skinny people. My room was very small and very hot. When I called to have it fixed it took 3 calls before it was finally fixed. The people were pleasant.

We always stay at the Empire Hotel in NYC. The location is perfect. The place is clean and I have no complaints whatsoever. The food is good in the restaurant and also next door. The bed is also quite comfortable.

My daughter and I had an absolutely wonderful experience staying at this hotel. The staff at the front desc, Pasquale and Ze were great. Our room was perfect. The fact that you don't have to drive all over town to get good food also helped a lot, since the Restaurant in-house is excellent! We just could walk across the street... More

The hotel is in a great location and is super trendy but the rooms are entirely too small and not enough space. When calling the front desk, during my stay, they were not friendly or attentive. The elevators were also very slow.

The room was badly in need for a update. Bathroom is really small. Bathroom door was broken. Tables and furniture were badly worn. Wallpaper was peeling. I just plain out expected more. Hope there is a revamp soon.

Double check the rates and any aaa discounts that may apply. Hotel could use some updates and attention to rugs walls etc. Can't beat the location in the heart of lincoln center. I've been staying here for years it's probably time to update and freshen some things up.

Good value and love the location. We arrived with our golf clubs from vacationing in FL and they stored them for us at no additional fee, bellmen were super friendly and staff was very welcoming. Love

Beautiful hotel just across from Lincoln Center. Very convenient for a night out at the opera! Pricey for the room itself, but the location is unbeatable. Will be returning for another Met Opera stay in the future!

The Empire was still a gorgeous hotel in 1980, probably just a bit past its heyday, when I stayed there while working mandatory overtime at my first job at an insurance company at 66th & Broadway. I lived on Staten Island, and it was easier to remain in the City, rather than make the long trek out and back from... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
