Great value Manhattan 5 star hotel

On a private corner of 63rd street, you'll find the luxurious boutique Empire hotel just oozing with sophisticated comfort and style. A rarity in New York, the Empire boasts a fantastic roof top plunge pool and lounge bar that with the sun, moon and stars as your canopy provides some stunning panoramic views of the city skyline. Just a short stroll in to Central Park and you'll feel miles away from the typical hustle bustle of the New York streets, however, you'll still be within easy walking distance to Rockefeller Centre, Radio City Music Hall and Times Square.

Room issues, not fully corrected


We had a room booked 4 nights. After sleeping though night 1s with gnats (in 3 different places in the room), we were switched to a new room the next day. The new room had heat problems (the ac needed to be on but was stuck on heat), the fridge was left empty, no coffee machine and places to plug in phones by the bed were never brought in. In exchange for my daughter and I sleeping with gnats for a night we were moved to a different room and given 4 extra water bottles. I don’t think $6 in free water was enough, I think the 1st nights room should have been refunded.

Empire Hotel - 1st trip to NYC

We chose The Empire from approx 50 Hotels based mainly on the location to Central Park and the Roof Top Bar. The location did not disappoint. Overall the Hotel was clean and the staff very friendly. we did not eat in the Hotel so cannot comment on the food. The roof Top Bar was fairly full considering we were out of season and many tables had 'Reserved' on them even though we arrived there at about 6pm (so book early) we were not informed about the Hotel Bars (the Lobby Bar was closed one day until about 5pm) when we arrived but generally you can work things out as you go. The Lobby staff were friendly and were happy to have photos taken (providing they did not seem to be shurking their responsibilities) New Yorkers are very proud and they love their city - which did not disappoint at all. We would stay here again without a second thought! Hope you will welcome us back soon!!!
