Beverly Hills,
Reviewed yesterday NEW

The shower design is not very good. Extremely tight. There was no second door or shower curtain to avoid water coming out. The air conditioner wasn't working very well. It looked like an inferno. The location is very good.

If you're going to any event at Lincoln Center, this is where you want to stay. It is literally steps away. The hotel is very nice, great access to restaurants (inside and out)/shopping/local attractions and staff is friendly and accommodating.

We came to NYC for a party and decided to stay over. We loved the hotel. The room was clean and nicely decorated. More spacious than I expected in NYC. I loved the rainfall shower. The beds were comfy. The HVAC could use updating. It's a bit noisy and the controls controls were a bit tricky. It would have been...

I recently stayed at the Empire Hotel for a staycation in the city via Hotel Tonight. The hotel is lovely but I couldn't believe the quality of the bed I stayed in. It was honestly rock solid and I woke up every morning in pain. This is coming from a girl who can sleep on the floor of a friend's...

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.

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.
