My daughters treated me to this stay for a Mother's Day gift and I couldn't have been happier. We were upgraded to a suite which gave us plenty of room to stretch out. The beds were comfortable and the decor was retro and cool. A lively rooftop lounge and lobby bar were perfect for entertainment and convenient. With a parking...

I've stayed at Hotel Empire a few times now over the last 5-7 years. It is very hip looking and I like that vibe. Some of the rooms are pretty small, but this last one was a nice size. The staff is always friendly and helpful. And it is a great location next to Lincoln Center and Columbus Circle. I...

The location was fine, and there were certain amenities that were nice. Main lobby was very dark with no exterior windows and kept dark. Rooms are TINY! No closet, just a curtain to cover a space for hanging, and the bathroom was so small and odd shaped that I couldn't even stand in front of the sink to shave! I...

This was our first visit to the Empire Hotel. We found that the staff went out of their way to be cheerful and accommodating. The room and bathroom was inviting and well kept. One nice touch was the hotel's umbrella for our use. During our visit it really came in hand.

The wife and I had a 1 King Bed city view which was perfect for our stay. We got there a little early and the bellman held our luggage for us. The front desk called and texted us to let us know our room was ready. When we got to our room, I noticed that the air conditioning unit was...

This location can't be beat - walking distance to so many great attractions for touristing around the city. Front desk and bellman services were excellent - Pasquale at main desk was very helpful. Room service breakfast was top-notch. Rooftop bar area a lot of fun. My only complaint was the lighting level in the room itself - particularly the bathroom,...

Location and service of this hotel was great - my only two complaints: - No free internet in the rooms, only in the hotel lobby. In this day of age I think it's absurd not to offer free Wifi to guests, especially at this price point. - Poor shower design. There is no shower curtain or door and water comes...

How a wonderful experience with this hotel. Got a great deal for two nights. Had a small issue with a room and was completely taken care of immediately to my satisfaction. Manager went above and beyond. Will be staying again. Usually stay at the Hyatt but will be staying here from now on when I go to NYC!

Took my girls to the ballet at The Met and The Empire Hotel was wonderful! The decor was nice, rooms were clean & very comfortable! Perfect location for us. Ken & Pasquale were awesome! We'll be back for sure!

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.
