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.

Feel like royalty at the Empire

This was our second visit to The Empire and we were even more impressed if you can believe that. We were greeted with smiles from everyone from the doorman to the front desk attendants. It was our 1 year wedding anniversary and we were upgraded to a beautiful junior suite. The service at the roof top bar was impeccable, Maggi and Stanley were standout employees. Just so attentive and helpful. We had an issue at midnight with the AC in our room, so we called down to the front desk and immediately the maintenance man can right up and resolved the issue, all while the concierge sent up a fan to make sure we were comfortable. Upon checking out we had the most wonderful conversation with the doorman, who I believe his name is Billy. Turns out he only lives 1 town away from us on Long Island. We love our visits to the Empire Hotel! After staying in numerous NYC hotels, the Empire has and will become a staple in our home. We look forward to staying with you again!

room is super compact and very less light in the room

New York City, New York

Won't recommend to others. the room is not lit very well. there is literally no room to move. hotel condition is very bad too. not value for money. Only good thing is that it is close to central park so you can go out for walk.
