Once again The Empress Hotel has shown their true colors of professionalism, hospitality and courtesy to me and my guests. Kristin, Milton, and Josh tended to our every need, no matter how petty it may have seemed, always at our service with a smile and never having to ask them twice. I wouldnt stay anywhere else when i visit Asbury...

Hi we just decided to go Asbury Park last weekend on an impromtu trip. We had stayed at the Empress last year in late September and loved it. Just decided to call thinking they would not have any rooms and to my surprise they had availability. We arrived on Sunday and met Josh at front desk, he was extremely helpful...

Just got back from a 3 day stay at the Empress. Hotel is reasonably priced and clean as well in a great location. We were 1st booked at the Berkeley then I changed it because they did not have any balconies.. And I was glad I did, the balcony is key especially since we had a great Boardwalk and Ocean...

The Empress Hotel is very clean, comfortable amd a few steps above the rest in quality. It's quiet ( if you want it to be) or join the parties poolside or in the bar. The staff is sensational, always kind, patient and ready to help. We needed a referidgerator for medications and they supplied it for us.

My husband & I Just drove to the shore & said we were going to Asbury Park this year. We went from the start of the boardwalk to what we called the end & the Empress was the only Hotel there. We were so impressed we just booked our stay. We found out later that is was mostly gay, and...

When I started looking around for hotel accommodations in Asbury Park, my expectations were not high. What I found however really grabbed my attention. I found the Empress Hotel quite by accident and the rates were really reasonable so I booked it. I figured that we wouldn't be in the hotel that much since there is so much to do...

I debated with myself between 3 & 4 stars but the overall experience made me lean toward the better. Decided I needed a NJ Shore excursion before the summer is over and am happy I chose midweek here. Arrived early on Tuesday for four days and was accommodated with a very nice room at the internet rate. Very clean, luscious...

I stayed here with my mother for a few days away at the beach. She had been here before, I had not. It was pretty much what I expected. The staff was very nice and very accommodating. When we got to our room and I realized it was not an ocean side, I went to ask if we could switch...

We stayed here for a week and it was perfect. Reasonable rates, even during a peak season, and lots of perks. We had some questionable weather a couple days where we didn't feel like wasting our money for a beach pass only to stay for an hour, so we went to the pool. There is a ton of seating for...
