Stayed in the Empire as part of our team location for the MYC marathon. Paid 350USD night, with taxes etc ended at 400, could have done much better elsewhere.
The staff were good and accommodating, they changed our room immediately once we complained of the noise from the aircon unit.
The rooms where OK, good bed but no hanging space, very bad for business trip. the shower and bath were OK but could use a touch up as the door already had water damage.
the room beside us had glasses out in the hall for 24 hours that weren't cleaned up.
The lobby is well designed, but a bad wind comes in from the street and makes it cold.
People were putting their shoes on the tables in the lobby and no employee asked them to remove their feet, people later put drinks and food on those surfaces.
To get to the hotel, just take a taxi from Penn station if you came in from JFK.
All in all, it's ok, but there may be better ones out there.
