In lieu of a typical classmate birthday party, we celebrated my daughters' eighth birthday in New York City with their best friend and her mother.
We are so happy with our choice to stay at the Empire Hotel.
From start to finish everything was perfect.
The concierge, Chris, was so friendly and helped us choose the perfect restaurant to go to with the girls and helped us to navigate through the city.
Somehow the front desk realized that it was the girls' birthday and we were greeted with six of the most beautiful and delicious cupcakes!!!!
The rooms were clean & beautiful with their earthy, warm tones.
The beds were so comfortable no one wanted to leave!!!
We ordered room service in the morning. The food came quickly and the person who delivered was happy to come in and set up breakfast!
Even when it came time to leave, the doorman (wish I remembered his name!) was friendly, making the girls laugh and he even helped us with our bags, carried them right to the cab and put them in the trunk for us.
All in all, we loved the hotel. We felt welcomed by the entire staff and comfortable in our room.
Would recommend the hotel to anyone. Great location. Great with children. Wonderful service.
Can't wait to go back for my birthday next month(sans kids, of course)!!!
Think I will ask for the same room!
