The Empire is next to Lincoln Centre and near Central Park and Columbus Circle. Thus a very good location for music and operalovers. The hotel is rated 4 stars but is in our view more towards 3 stars. Dark small rooms. Filthy dark corridors. Non functioning elevators. Expensive breakfast, $35, but definitely not worth it. So most guests went to Starbuck in the same house. No free wi-fi in the rooms,$12 per day. However, sometimes it was available free in the lobby and of course always perfect at Starbuck´s. Hopeless reception which charged incidentials incorrectly to wrong rooms which caused a lot of anger and efforts for the guests. The bar was OK.
