Getting here was easier than we expected. Though the plane journey from Fiji was eleven and a half hours long, we were alert enough at Los Angeles to collect our baggage, cross to another terminal, dispose of our luggage and upgrade our plane tickets. There is a taxi master at JFK, who orders up a taxi and tells the driver how much he can charge us …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Empire Hotel New York City

    Great hotel for lower Central Park West


    I chose this hotel because it was one of the few in this neighborhood. But I would definitely stay there again, as long as the rates don't rise.



    Tired of reading nasty movie reviews, then finding out the film in question is in fact great? Me too, and I'm beginning to feel the same way about hotel reviews.

    Nice Look but lacking atmosphere


    Excellent location; nice looking bar and reception area; well presented rooms all ensured I had an excellent first impression of this property.

    Chic but Friendly


    Recently restored, everything new, tres moderne! - attention to detail like wallmounted bedroom flatscreen tv's and even ipod docks. However what was most noticeable were the friendly and efficient staff.

    Cool decor but tiny rooms!


    The Hotel Empire has had a makeover and it's very chic - although the lobby and bar are almost a little too precious. The rooms are nicely decorated - with earth tones, velvet and suede. Too bad they are so tiny - you get claustrophobic. And tinier than even most NY hotel rooms. Also, the room I was given was very dark - a window that backed up onto a brick wall - very unappealing. I liked the complementary breakfast and staff. The location is terrific, but I don't think it's worth the $295 price tag for what you get!

    I must have stayed in a different hotel


    I feel as if I stayed at a totally different hotel to the previous two reviewers. I spent a week at the Empire Hotel which began in a dramatic way with the flat screen tv falling off the wall on my first night there. As a result I was upgraded to a larger room which had great views of the Lincoln Centre and down Broadway and Columbus streets. I agree that the first room was very small - but this is New York!!. I loved the location - so close to the Park, subway station and Columbus Circle ( and its great coffee at Bouchon on the third floor of the Time Warner Building). I thought the room, bed, linens etc were great and I had no problem with the shower at all. I found the room to be very clean, no unusual odours, the ac not noisy - my only tiny complaint is the walls seemd a little thin. Perhaps that was because on a couple of nights I had exceptionally noisy neighbours. While I was there a very adequate complimentary breakfast was served every morning. The decor was very reminiscent of the 1950's and I found this appealing. The staff - without exception were very friendly and extremely helpful. I really enjoyed my stay at the Empire Hotel. I would probably not stay there again - but only because I like trying different neighbourhoods when I travel.

    Nice staff, ultra-small rooms, no closet!


    Me and my brother, we've stayed at the hotel in peak season - August. It is a renovated old hotel, but it's visible(!). Old and noisy airconditioning, old windows(!) with almost no sealing etc..

    The personnel was more than friendly, but since it hasn't been completed yet, there was almost no breakfast and complimentary services ... But the rooms are almost terrible. I have to say, it's below average.

    Btw. Just on the other side of the street is subway, so good starting point.


    Not recommended


    I was looking forward to staying at this hotel because the location is in a good area and it is a brand new boutique style hotel, with reasonable rates when it first opened. Also, I noticed it was classified as a four star hotel and that the rates would soar later in the year, so I assumed it was a really nice place. Then, when I arrived, I was immediately disappointed.

    Loved Stay, Will Return


    Boutique hotel has attractive foyer with unique four-sided settee as centerpiece. Hotel and rooms are newly decorated in calming earth tones. Great location w/ Lincoln Center and Bank of America across the street; shops, pharmacy, restaurants, subway, and Central Park w/in two blocks. Two robes folded and tied w/ decorative ribbon were furnished for our stay. Very comfortable bedding. Shower knobs and switch were a bit tricky though. I'm convinced that Tim "Tool Time" Taylor selected that gadget! Just look up before turning on the shower. More than adequate free continental breakfast in the lobby and bar area. Friendly staff. We will come back again.
