The Empire Hotel

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.

Sad to say - a poor room assignment results in a downgrade

Usually in previous stays in the Empire, I have been pleased with the room and never experienced such a disaster as a heater that would not turn off. I felt like I was at a stifling summer camp. This room and other rooms on the same floor that were west facing all had issues with overheating. Windows were inoperable. I have in the past praised this hotel, but watch out for a miserable room assignment. I will go back because of the proximity to the Met Opera and the opportunities offered for entertainment at Lincoln Center. Next time, I'll be on guard against a raunchy room assignment, as you should be!.

Classic NY place

Kortrijk, Belgium

I often travel to NYC from Belgium for seminars. Of all the places I have stayed at I like the Empire Hotel the best... kudos to the friendly and helpful staff, rooms are clean and location is great, right next to the iconic Juilliard school!
