Should have free wifi in the room.
Bar Location Roof Terrace
Cold water for showers in the morning Had to pay extra for Wi-Fi (available free in lobby but not in room) Room a bit dirty/dusty Wardrobe not fit for purpose
No kettle in room for making coffee and tea.
Helpful staff Comfortable bed Quiet Perfect location My room had 2 exposures- very nice views of the city
Poor lighting in room for reading and for applying makeup No paper or envelopes provided Closet is too high and too small Very loud music in cold windy lobby Wallpaper needs better upkeep where pulling away at seams
Excellent location and very helpful staff.
No free wifi in the hotel room, only in the lobby.
elevators were horrible. Or you had to wait a very long time or when you finally had one it stopped at all flours
Location and gave an early check in
No free wi fi in the room. Slow elevator. Dreary small room.
Lobby looks like a dark seedy nightclub. No complimentary coffee in rooms. Rooftop bar served wine in plastic glasses! In short, I hated everything- definitely not 4 star
Staff were polite and helpful. Aircon though noisy worked well.
No shower door, shower was hard to figure out how to turn on. View was ugly of broken windows. Bed was hard, we only had three pillows. Aircon is very noisy. No complimentary tea or coffee. Wallpaper is peeking off in places.
Decor very good and bedrooms a reasonable size for a large city.
No WIFI in bedrooms. Only in lounge area. And quite slow.
I thought the Empire was a great value and excellent location. Across the street from the Lincoln center. Several good restaurants in the area and conveniently near a subway stop. My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights on a recent trip to New York and enjoyed it. Room was very comfortable, clean and quiet.
Location to ABC. The Smith restaurant.
Small bathroom no tub
Of course the location is terrific and the staff was helpful.
The noise level of the hotel guests was intolerable as well as the loud humming of the aircondition in the room. The bar is way too dark and that there are no peanuts or anything served with cocktails is ridiculous.
Good bed. Comfortable. Professional staff.
Noisy. the back rooms have building A/C to deal with and front rooms the street. Everything extra is charged for - no free instant coffee in the room. The minibar and desk are packed with snacks and alcohol at inflated prices to tempt you to spend more.
Friendly staff. Location.
Rooms too small. Bathrooms too congested.
The location is excellent. Right on Central Park and a short 10 minute walk to Times Square. The lobby is smart.
Delay checking in. Quite a Small Room. The Pool is much smaller than it looks in promotional pictures.
Good location opposite the Lincoln Center
The pool is extremely small, and the pictures on booking.com are quite misleading. The room was quite small, but I guess it was one of the smallest ones.
Everything about the hotel was what was expected.
The elevators need to be replaced!! We were there for 3 nights and had to walk to the 9th floor every time we went to room. The elevators were getting stuck, random buttons would light up when no one pushed them, would stop on floors nor requested. Asked to be moved to lower floor bc of knee issues... Of course " no rooms".... Didnt ened make it to pool level bc elevators didn't work!! Which is one reason we decided to stay there.. The rooftop. UNFORTUNATLY prob wouldn't stay again....
Bed was comfortable Roof terrace was nice
Dirty room Air con broken and wasn't fixed during my stay Very small pool Dark rooms
Comfortable beds Decor we liked Room service ok
Not enough towels for family of 4 Shower door water ruining closing door No shower door Room too small Stubbing toes on entry of bathroom and bottom of beds No balcony One Elevator out Private party on top with little kids didn't utilize it and we booked cause of pool :-(
Room had no view but good size for a families with kids. Very clean and curdeous staff.
The roof top pool was small ! Very narrow -- not what the advertised picture showed. Roof top had a nice view though.
Fabulous location! Nice lobby.
Room was soooo small and beat up. Air conditioner on the brink--so hot in room. Not a single staff interaction was great or memorable. Pool was gross.
Chambre trop petite Piscine riducule et sale
The location was excellent and the hop off & hop on bus stopped just across the road from the hotel. The park was in close proximity with lots to do.
The room had little storage space for our clothes as a family. The first room that we were given had no safe, or bath tub for our children. The bathroom door has a glass door limited privacy, the hook was so high, no door on the shower. The lifts were always getting stuck and you always waited a long time for it to arrive. The gym was only axccesable with pne lift, and the pool was really not easy to get to. It was also alot smaller than it looks on the internet and was very cold, not heated at all far from indoor as we expected. Coffee in rooms isn't compilmentary as in other hotels. I don't think i would go back to that hotel in a hurry. The internet in the lobby didnt work all the time for me, making it really difficult for me to access my mail.
