Super schöner Urlaub im Herzen von New York!!! Würden sofort wieder Hinfliegen und auch im selben Hotel wieder wohnen! Zur Subway nur 2 geh minuten! Frühstücken zwischen Colambus Ave. und Brodway!!

Gut gelegenes Hotel, aber renovierungsbedürftig

Posted Jan 23, 2015
Pros: Gute Lage, Babybett gratis
Das Empire Hotel liegt sehr gut in Nähe des Columbus Cirlce. Hotelteam ist sehr freundlich. Das Hotel wurde wohl kürzlich renoviert, hier aber wohl nur die Flure und die Lobby. Das Zimmer war durchaus renovierungsbedürftig (abblätternde Farbe und Tapete, kaputte Türen, etc.). Insgesamt für NYC-Verhältnisse ok, aber sicherlich nicht auf dem neusten Stand, sondern "in die Jahre gekommen". Die gute Lage mit vielen Geschäften und die Nähe zum Central Park entschädigen aber.

Great Manhattan location

Posted Jan 19, 2015
Location: The location is fantastic, right near Lincoln Center. Very easy to get around the city.
We spent one night at Empire Hotel while busy in Manhattan. It is an upbeat hotel with a very friendly/helpful staff. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The decor is updated and the room was spotless. I would definitely go back to this hotel.

Close to the Lincoln Center

Posted Jan 16, 2015
Cons: I've always found the shower facility hard to handle here. This time it was broken.
IIt is nice to be so close to the room after the show.

Great hotel close to all the main attractions!

The empire was a fantastic hotel room size was decent for New York, the staff were very polite and extremely helpful! The bathroom doors needed a bit of painting and updating. But overall a great stay would defiantly stay again!

Excellent location

Posted Jan 12, 2015
Pros: Love the location
Cons: Nothing
Location: Within walking distance of Central Park, Lincoln Center, Time Warner Ctr, ABC studios and CBS studios. Great area to wander around any time of day.
Room overlooked Lincoln Center. Very attractive lobby. Excellent places to eat right outside your door and Ed's Chowder House in the hotel was outstanding. Staff was very friendly, room was comfortable and clean.

great location horrible hotel

Posted Jan 10, 2015
Pros: the location, if you want to be close to Lincoln Center
Cons: All of the above
Location: location is great with Lincoln Center & Jazz at Lincoln Center at your feet and many good restaurants
we booked a suite and were told we would be facing courtyard, it turned out to be three brick walls, the bathroom was 5'x5', you needed to sit on toilet bowl to close door, one small sink, that water would not drain until you took out plunger, there was no tub, a water bottle was $8.- and unless you like 60's MOTOWN playing 24/7 this is not the place for you, the lobby was so noisy that we held our meeting at the corner restaurant. At 3am a loud noise, like a jet taking off, came on and lasted for 35 mins. When we lodged our complain the front desk informed us that we did not have to pay for the small bottle from the bar and hoped that would make us happy.
