Excellent service and facilities
That wifi wasn't complimentary
The location to Lincoln center, central park, 5th avenue shopping, Times Square is fantastic.
elevators don't work properly and take a long time to arrive. Stairs from lobby to first floor are poorly marked and on the creepy side.
Absolutely the worst bathroom I have ever encounter in a hotel. It must have been designed by someone from Devil's Island. No area (except the floor) to put toiletries while preparing, sink so shallow that when you turn on the faucet, you get your pants washed, one two square inch piece of soap per guest, cardboard cups (no even plastic), no safety bar in shower, toiletry shelf so high you need to play basket ball to reach upper items. And, couldn't you offer free coffee in room? Three dollars a cup...really!
Staff was very pleasant ant helpful particularly door staff.
The elevator was horrible often adding 10-15 minutes to gathering time. No vent in bathroom which makes it hard to share. Lighting is extremely dim.
Location was excellent for getting around in the City. We were in for the Opera with a group of friends. For most of our group it was our second stay for the same propose. We all would select the Empire again
No bathrobes in the room. Poor and slow service during breakfast
The Internet was terrible.
The location is great.
The room stayed to hot even with the ac on.
Small rooms, horror view to the inside of the building ( all AC , vents etc ), very noisy as well. Bathroom was no more than 4 x 3 ft, no door on shower , only 3 towels provided ( we traveled 4 people ,), a 1 extra small soap bar for all. Disgusting services !!
A decent hotel in an excellent location. Across the street from Lincoln Center
It's quite comfortable. Bathrooms need to be renowated in some places (doors, etc.).
The wifi was slow and more often than not didn't work at all which was annoying considering I pay roughly $34 for he three days I was there. The window in the roof was badly sealed and let a draft in.
It was in a good location, the bed was comfortable, the staff were friendly.
- Small bathroom - Room was too hot - Too much noise in the aisle all night.
- Friendly staff - Nice location
Good bed, convenient to all
Long waits for the lifts. Charges made for coffee making
Excellent location for Lincoln Centre, Central Park and Columbus Circus. Just a few yards to walk to the Subway with only a few stops to Times Square. Pleasant helpful staff, comfortable and clean
proximity to Lincoln Center.
$8 for a bottle of water in the room? Come on. The elevator (on the left) was cantankerous; stopped on every floor. The elevator on the right didn't work (although it was more attractive with a mirror behind the façade...let's update the elevators and make them match).
We come to NYC for the MET. This location is perfect. The restaurant on the 3rd floor is lovely and the wait staff couldn't be nicer. The rooms are clean and comfortable.
THe shower was difficult to turn on and at first I had now idea how to work it and had to call someone
I didn't like how hot the room got and I was uncomfortable with not having a door on the shower..
Room service breakfast is great and the Kenny's Candy drink is fabulous!
Bed legs protrude from the bed mattress and are hard to see
Staff and location
Staff were very rude
Nothing in the room is free (apart from bathroom toiletries and towels). There is a coffee machine but it will cost you $3 for a coffee pod. There was no bath tub (perhaps only our room) and watching a movie will set you back $16 + tax. The air-con was noisy and the view restricted (again perhaps due to our room). Also, be warned... the hotel will 'book' on your credit card approx. $600 on your day of arrival. When checking out, you will be refunded the amount and charged again. In our case, this meant that our account was short by $600 for 3 days (the time it took for the money to get back into the account) after having been billed on our way out. We would strongly advised that you paid cash the 'booking' if possible so that you are not left short like we were.
It was the perfect hotel to stay for the first three nights of our stay. We were more happy with the following hotel though. The Empire's location is very handy (subway, Central Park) and the room will meet basic requirements. The lobby was beautiful with a handy bar area. We have not tried the restaurant.
The room was very small, which made it a little difficult to move in. Loved having dinner at Ed's Chowder House which is attached to the hotel, but eating there for breakfast was very pricey. Take out all of the silly, pricey snacks and bar stuff out of the rooms and just let patrons use the refrigerator in the rooms.
The location was good. The rooms were clean.
$100 a night incidentals fee Worst in room dining ever food was tasteless and rotten. Heater/air conditioning was broken. It was 30° outside in the middle of winter and I still had to leave the window wide open because it was so hot in the room.
the room was very clean and the staff was friendly.
Wardrobe only took blouse or trousers not for long coats or dresses
