In town for a family wedding. We got a great group rate. Everything was wonderful except the bathroom which needed updating and general maintenance. It was difficult to keep the room comfortable as the heat pump doesn't have a thermostat.

Queen room very noisy. Outside noise 24/7, sounded like the engine of a plane. Unable to sleep through it. Paid extra for the next 3 nights to upgrade room, slightly better but lots of traffic noise. Windows didn't seal properly and could hear people walking by the hotel even though we were on the 3rd floor. Good location, very close...

I stayed at the Empire over President's Day weekend with girlfriends. We all had separate rooms which were all upgraded when we checked in. We arrived early & we were accomodated right away. Pasquale and Kevin Kim could not have been any nicer. The location could not be beat. It is a block away from the subway. Steps away from...

We had an awesome time. Loved the free upgrade to a suite. Anete at the front desk was wonderful at check in. The hotel is in an outstanding location, with so much nearby within walking distance. The rooftop bar is terrific! Truly a memorable time.

We were disappointed in the empire hotel. Our shower did not work properly. We had to use the hand held part of the shower since the overhead did not work. The breakfast at eds chowder house was insufficient. The display of the food was not filled & looked like leftovers.

Great staff, clean hotel in a great location we had wonderful service and a great experience. Rooftop lounge was a great experience friendly staff. The only drawback for me is the showers in the rooms should have a full shower door on them, said he half door allows the floors to become soaked which was a hassle to deal with...

Great hotel overall and would recommend this hotel to others. Positives: Location is great for sight seeing and generally travelling around the city. Nice, clean and light room, friendly staff. Negative: We could hear a lot of noise from outside, from our room and this made it difficult to sleep at night although I am not sure if this is...

Highly recommend. Staff was so personal and friendly! Location was a stone throw to Lincoln Center and Juilliard! Did not feel like a big corporate hotel. Had character and warm. Will definitely return!

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
