Don t ascend unless you have a clear day. We went on a wet day and could see nothing from the top! And they will take your money for no views! Thought this was unfair as we only booked when we arrived and they could have said come back another day! Money wasted. Visit top of the rock instead!
Honestly not worth the view and over priced. We did it as it’s always been a bucket list item but I would suggest if you had to pick to do the one world way better view than empire and top of the rock
Stunning views but so crowded, queues were unbelievably long. Took the shine and romance off going there again. Last time my husband and I visited The Empire State Building was in 1997 in March (bitter cold) and we hopped straight in the lift and straight up to the Observation Deck. We were the only people on the Deck - special memory.
We purchased 4 tickets totalling $130 to be told after purchasing that visability was poor but that we could use them on a different day. No use to us as we were returning home to Ireland. As a result we were in a cloud looking out.
This is one of those absolutely must do’s when in nyc. Go early and get fast track tickets to cut the queue times. Can be a bit crowded at the top but what a view of the city from the most famous building.
Skip it. Rather go to the Rockefeller Center “Top of the Rock” More space on top. Glad Panels instead of metal bars. And you get a view of not just the Empire State Building but also the Central Park

This hotel is utterly lovely, it's modern, only a five minute walk from the metro (one of which happens to be next to the flat iron building so bonus tourist site) they also gifted us a bottle of prosseco for our anniversary which was utterly lovely. Great views of New York city with massive windows, incredibly comfy beds and nice bathrooms. Also included dressing gown and slippers (but only one of each which was weird) You also have access to the rooftop which provides excellent views including a great one of the Empire State Building

I would give five stars for this hotel as its located at heart of NYC. Very short walking distance to Empire State building but not noisy place(however, we stayed at 23rd floor). Just 2 mins walk to 33rd Subway station (green, number 6 line). Grand Central Station is just one stop away from there as well to time square. Walking along 5th ave for shopping and just drop in nearby korea town for some korean cuisine. Good and friendly Thai restaurant nearby (on 34th street, v[iv]). Very easy access by train and walking.

Great location near Penn Station, an easy walk to Times Square and the Empire State Building is around the corner. The Herald Square subway entrance is about 10 m from the hotel. Bed was comfortable and staff were friendly and helpful. This is a small, mid range hotel in New York and was suitable for our price range, especially as we wanted to be in Midtown Manhattan.

The bed was very comfy and the shower was just lovely. Room was very clean and spacious. Would definitely stay at this hotel again. The breakfast was fine. Ideal location just round the corner from 5th Avenue, time square, center park and Empire State Building all in walking distance.

Great hotel near the Empire state building. The hotel room was clean and great in size. The hotel is near to the metro station 34th. The hotel is in koreatown, so there are many good restaurants in the area.

Central location of the hotel, 5 mins walk to the Empire State Building. Staff very kind and helpful, big thanks to Sofia from the reception!
The Empire State Building gives you an amazing view of the city's night skyline. I will recommend the Top of the Rock for the view of the city's day skyline - you'll be able to get a picture of the Empire State Building from here.
Get tickets for Empire State in advance to fast track for tickets.
Top off the Rock. Means you can actually view the Empire State building, plus enjoy a cocktail or two if it is raining!
If you want to avoid the crowds then I suggest going very early or late. My best suggestion is to do the Empire State Building at night. I went at 11.30 and didn't wait in line at all!! It's also open til 2am.
Check if you can book in advance. The best thing we found was booking a time slot early in the day (at Rockefella and 9/11 Memorial) and returning later in the day after experiencing places where you didn't have to queue (Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge). This meant we didn't waste half our day queueing for an attraction (queues for Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building were horrendous and did not offer the option to book a time).
We went to the 'Top Of The Rock' (Rockerfeller center) which gave an outstanding view, the main view was of the Empire State building but you could see for miles!
