I stayed four days in the hotel. The location is good and the rooms are Ok, the noise level can be incredibly high though. I also stayed in other hotels in NY and some rooms in the Empire are way noisier than the NY average, especially the ones that overlook the back of the hotel (and are above the AC unit).
If you get rooms overlooking the street the hotel is quite Ok I find.
The Fitness Centre is a real joke though and doesn't deserve its name. It should be rebranded as "Two normal rooms containing some fitness machines".
