We love the Empire and this was our second stay. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is great. My only complaint is that our AC unit was very dated and didn’t get very cold. Other than that it was an amazing stay.

The rooms are a little run down with wallpaper curling slightly in a corner and scratched/dented furniture. But lobby, roof deck and staff are top notch.

Initially, this property is in poor condition. Some of the rooms have water damage in the bathroom and overall the property has not been upgraded in a long time. They were many rooms out of order which causes scheduling problems. Also, the operations management are poorly coordinated and communicated. We pre-paid for our room three weeks in advance, and yet when we showed up late, the room was given away and sold to someone else, meeting it was sold twice. Management was very unhelpful in resolving the problem. First they offered us an upgrade, and told us to stay in the inferior room until the new room was ready. They get then gave the new room away without telling us. Later, they comped us to an upgrade, but then charged us for the upgrade. The right hand does not know what the left hand is doing. It is extremely poorly run property. The rooms are also fairly small and not in good condition. The amenities are poor. There is no food, no coffee given to customers in the morning they are paper cups in your room instead of glass, there is no coffee machine in the room , overall it is just a substandard property. The only thing it has going forward is the location in Lincoln Center which is great, but there are some much better, much more modern and better run properties within a three or four block radius, which I have stayed at. I will never stay here again. I recommend you stay away from the property until it is completely upgraded and all the management is replaced and tra

On my departure morning unfortunately my phone broke. I asked the front desk for help. I needed to enter my Delta page and print out my boarding pass. They said that they can’t do it. As a travel agent working in the business, I am surprised and disappointed.
