The room was comfortable, albeit on the small side, and well decorated. Excellent location, excellent accommodations. Very pleased with my stay.
Paying for Wifi, so I didn't.
I liked the service plus excellent meals on-site.
OnSunday morning at about 3:00a.m. returing party-types stood outside my door laughing & disturbing everyone.
Not only Lincoln Center but also with all the good stores like Brooks Brothers, Pottery Barn, Gap, Banana Republic, and Bed, Bath & Beyond and restaurants nearby, the location was excellent. Convenient to go anywhere in the city using 1 train.
I wish the shower room had a glass door or the glass wall was a little bit longer. I needed to be very careful so I won't flood the bathroom floor.
The Hotel is getting tired
The location is excellent
Great location/ modern feel
We stayed for 2 days in January and had a wonderful time. It's always difficult travelling with 2 small children (1 yr old and 3 yr old) but the staff were very accommodating, giving us an early check in and very late check out to allow the little ones to sleep. The location was amazing, easy walk to the park and to times square, and the restaurant in the hotel (ed's chowder house) had an amazing a la carte menu for breakfast and brunch. The hotel itself was beautiful and luxurious, although with the 4 of us and all our bags, and a cot, the room was a bit cramped. But I inagine a smaller group would have found it perfect.
Bathroom was quite small and we could hear a lot of noise from the corridores outside where other guests were speaking loudly at night.
location ideal ,entrance nice, view good
staff unbelievable rude, we arrived new year were not told toof top bar would close, photos misleading booked to have outside roof top pool which looks covered over hence its not its actuta;ly closed but not told, very disapointed brought it to managers attention and was given a free drink in the lobby no refund no discount no mean offer just a drink, wouldnt come again, took $300 security deposit so a chunk of our spending cash was held made the trip real dificult.
Location wise the hotel is very nicely situated close to central park and Lincoln center.... away from the chaos of the midtown but still close to subway stops and walking distance to Central Park.
Very noicy! The heating system is very noisy and we even changed our first room because it was right on top of the central air unit and it was extremely noisy! The second room we got was still on the inside of the building but the heating system in the room would make loud noises when it was turned on in the middle of the night. Noise was like a hammer banging against medal and would wake us up... I guess this is also the reason they provide earplugs on your bedside ... but still expected better condition of rooms. Also the main entrance is not protected from the cold and they even had space heaters to correct for that... not something you would expect laying around in a "Boutique" hotel. All in all they have rode the "Gossip Girl" trend for a while and not paid attention to some major updating needed in the hotel... can find better at same value.
Location Bar Facilities Bedrooms
Door to the room were very loud. Constant banging of doors by cleaner early in the morning.
Expensive in room refreshments, $8 for a bottle of water, $76 for a bottle of red wine. some shoddy and dated decor, bathroom door was rotten at the bottom and did not lock. air conditioning very noisy. Lifts to floors were a joke, very slow and arrived at random floors, would be dangerous in an emergency situation, noise from adjoining rooms also an issue.
Great location, gym, quick check in and check out. Good cleaning, but not enough towels in the room for three of us. Nice staff.
Water on the floor in the bathroom after taking the shower. Small rooms and bathroom for 3 people. Thin walls between the rooms. We couldn't sleep well. Neighbors speaks so loud and going back and force all the night. Security try to help but next night was the same.
Could not work shower.
Bathroom was very small, toiletries poor. Plumbing in very poor condition. Everything that is included in the room rate at other hotels has a charge attached to it at the Empire. TV, coffee etc.
apples at check-in desk. fitness center. overall room comfort.
paying for in-room coffee. no toothpaste available without charge. spraying sink faucet. small, awkward ironing board.
the staff were great
the heating is old and makes an awful sound when it kicks in paying for wifi in a four start hotel in 2014 is asking a bit much
The location is excellent!
The price of a room is simply outrageous. Moreover even amenities that are complimentary is the most modestly-priced hotels and motels elsewhere (such as coffee) is charged to the guests. The room is dark and rather small. The elevators were surprisingly slow.
Location is ideal as the Central Park is very near and the busy Times Square is just far enough away, but reachable. Lincoln Center is great venue too
Charges for every little thing. I understand profits need to be made but just put it in the price or bundle some normal amenities. $7 for water bottle. $2 for in room coffee, and the most outrageous is Wifi for $12 a day PER DEVICE!
This hotel is just across the street from Lincoln Center, a perfect location for music lovers. There was a Starbucks, a PJ Clarke and an excellent Mexican restaurant in the same building, and a good deli a block away.
The room was a bit small and the bathroom tiny, but it was perfectly adequate.
The location is great, right across from Lincoln Center and 4 blocks from my mom's apt.
There was no hot water, the first room we stayed in was so small I thought I was in Paris! The Junior Suite was better, but still no hot water.
Elevator, bathroom, heatsystem,
Location and staff plus we got an upgrade and a late check out for my birthday :-)
Cleaning in the rooms wasn't very thorough and we were on level 2 so it was super noisy.
close to Lincoln Center close to Central Park super friendly personell
expensive (U$ 18 per day) and super slow (0.1 Mb upload) WiFi; long elevator queue, two elevators out of order; hotel is old, needs badly refurbishing; heating system was super noisy; my rooms (#940) door was broken, wardrobe door was broken etc..
There was no(k-cup) coffee in the room. I called down to the front desk and they said they would send some up, but they never showed up! On check-out, they tried to charge me for an adapter! I do't really know why!
Service! Next, time don't say you are going to do something and not do it! I'll go elsewhere next time.
