We chose the Empire Hotel for its proximity to Lincoln Center. We booked two rooms for our party of four - a king and a double - and when we checked in we were given an upgrade to a second king. This particular "upgrade" was teeny tiny and overlooked HVAC equipment. Considering we weren't there to relax, we didn't make a big deal out of it. But if an upgrade is offered here, or if you have high expectations, you should check out both rooms first! The bathroom could have used some TLC - missing grout and caulk, leaky bathtub, dirty corners and molding. The other king room was much nicer. It was larger and had a great view of Lincoln Center. Overall, a good visit, though. Friendly staff, helpful concierge.
