My sister and I went to NYC for a taping of The Chew. Because we had to be at the ABC studios so early, we decided to come in the night before and stay at a hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to us and even upgraded our room so we didn't have to share a queen bed!... More

Recently took a trip down to New York with a colleague for business. We were staying at the Empire hotel on the upper westside. Couldn't ask for better location, ton of city life and excitement right outside the doors of the hotel, as well as easy access to the subway and downtown core. Facilities and staff were exceptional with a... More

I stayed 3 nights at the Empire Hotel, in mid-April 2014. The hotel is ideally located in a great neighbourhood, off Lincoln Centre and Columbus Circle, and a street away from Central Park. I enjoyed their signature Burger for an in room dining experience, which I like to do at least once when staying in a hotel, and the service... More

I just recently stayed at this hotel for a birthday, girls weekend trip and I'm so glad I did! The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating, the room and hotel itself was incredible and the location was so convenient. I could not recommend a better hotel than the Empire!

Really nice hotel in a 5 star location. Special shout out to the manager on duty - Danny, who was more than helpful and welcoming when I checked in after 12hrs of travel! Thanks again! Will definitely be back next time I'm in town

I used to live 3 blocks from The Empire Hotel and absolutely loved the neighborhood. Only a few blocks from Central Park, Columbus Circle, Lincoln Center, etc it was perfect. The Empire Hotel is smack in the middle of the action and boasts a very nice renovation (last several years), making it a chic yet comfortable place to stay. I... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Empire. The location couldn't be better, close to the Lincoln Centre and Central Park, and a short walk to Times Square. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had two meals at Ed's Chowder House and found it to be first-rate. We had a great room with a great view to the... More

The hotel is in a great location - across from Lincoln Center and a short walk to the Time Warner Building, Times Square and Central Park. It has good restaurants nearby - The Smith across the street (had a great meal) and PJ Clarke's adjacent. There is a Starbucks two doors down. My room was comfortable but very cramped. The... More

Hello Joe O, Thank you for your recent stay at The Empire Hotel and for your detailed review of your experience. While our Standard Queen room type may well be perceived as small at 130 square feet, there are plenty of other options when it comes to larger rooms. Next time you stay with us, I would encourage you to... More
