Beautiful clean room overlooking Lincoln Center. Very comfortable and large suite. I stayed here with my adult son who was comfortable in the pull out couch. Niya was very helpful and personable in reception. Steven was also very friendly. Thank you! We’ll be back.

Steven epitomizes customer service excellence. He went above and beyond to make sure we had a comfortable stay, he helped us extend our stay and genuinely cared about our satisfaction. In fact, everyone we encountered, from the front entrance to the counter to the cleaning staff, were all kind and accommodating.

The location of the Empire is incredible. Just across from the Lincoln Center in the lower upper west side just a few blocks away from Colobus Circle and Central Park. The staff is amazing. A special shout out to Niya and Pasquel that were so sweet and made our stay at the hotel very special.

Aureel and Steven at the front desk were top notch hosts. Polite, respectful and went out of their way to help and make our stay comfortable. Great hotel. Great service. Great part of town. We will be returning to New York often in the next couple of years and plan on staying here every time.

Very nice experience with this hotel that is excellently located. I am very satisfied by the friendliness of the staff, who were really helpful when there was something with the noise in the room upon arrival. A special thanks to Adam who coordinated things very well. The only pity is that they don't serve breakfasts in the morning. I fully recommend this hotel.

I had an amazing stay at the Empire Hotel! Great location (you can’t do better: by the park, Lincoln center, some many choices of restaurants and shops), very friendly staff, clean rooms. Would definitely come back everytime I’m in town! Special shoutout to Steven who has been super nice during my stay.

Had a great experience today and the absolute best support from Niya who helped me book my room! She understands the importance of great customer service. And the room was beautiful and clean, my girlfriend and I really loved it. Thanks again for a great experience.
