New York is a big city. There are plenty of five star hotels to go around. The Empire isn't one of them, but it's really a great place to stay. If you want to be in the lap of Lincoln Center (it's right across the street) and conveniently close to Central Park and all the museums around it, this is...

This is my go-to Hotel ... while it can be crowded at the Lobby at times, nothing beats being next to Lincoln Center, Columbus Circle, Central Park and so much more. Last week I stayed there for work - 3 nights, and the fourth time in four years. Nothing is perfect and what made this stay special was the service...

I had a very good stay here. My trip was planned around opera, so being across the street from Lincoln Center made the Empire Hotel the perfect location. The doormen, front desk staff (especially Anthony), and housekeeping staff were all pleasant, helpful, and efficient. My room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. I will definitely stay here again!

Third time staying here. The first two times were better, though this one was not bad...just very average. Rooms are on the small side. Bed linens were lacking, IMO. No top sheet, just a duvet cover and no real mattress pad. No extra blankets either so it was a little cold overnight. The windows leak lots of cold air so...

Everything was fine. The room was tiny, but clean. Had a great view of the Met! Wireless was horrible. Only one of us could connect to WIFI access point and even then, getting to the internet was spotty at best.

We stayed here overnight since we had back to back shows to attend in town. The location was terrific for us. The room was surprisingly quiet from both street and guest noise. The bed was a little hard for my husband but no real complaints. We would certainly stay again.

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.
