Good times
My stay was good. Unfortunately we had a room with a view of the ventilation courtyard, or the inside of the building. It would be good to know if a room had no view ahead of time, so I could’ve upgraded, or switched. The rooms are not for short folks. My mom couldn’t reach the bathroom towels, or closet coat hanger bar. The hotel and rooftop bar were great. The area is so convenient being so close to everything, but far away enough as to not be constantly packed with people. With any kind of a view, this would be the perfect hotel for this part of town.

Empire Hotel disappointment
I did not enjoy this Hotel, other than it’s perfect location to the event I needed to be close to, everything else was miserable. After traveling internationally for a day and a half to get there, the room I was given had broken air conditioning, I switched rooms and that one had a terrible odor. The next day after disinfecting many times, the odor was less but still noticeable and the air conditioning in the second room was better but still strained and would not cool below a certain point. The room was damp, hot and triggering my allergies along with a foul odor probably from pet urine.

Nice boutique hotel.
Great location. It is only a 5 minute walk to Central Park, and 2 minutes to the nearest subway station. There’s a good restaurant at the bottom of the hotel as well. Staff was friendly. Only real gripe was there were no ice machines, or small fridges in the rooms. We’d stay again for sure.

Electric plugs were difficult to get to in an age when we connect everything we own. The people at the front desk could have been more helpful. Usually this place is great but maybe they were having a rough day.
