We stayed at the Empire in January 2017. We got an excellent rate, about $1000 for four nights in a (small) junior suite. We wanted proximity to the Metropolitan Opera, and the Empire is very close, easy walking distance and much closer than any other I know of. But as to amenities the hotel is woefully lacking. The room number...

We didn't spend much time in the hotel but the staff were brilliant, bringing us surprise champagne for us to celebrate our wedding and the whole place was beautiful to be in and the room was lovely absolutely no complaints, only minutes from some great pizza slices and Central Park!

New York is a big city. There are plenty of five star hotels to go around. The Empire isn't one of them, but it's really a great place to stay. If you want to be in the lap of Lincoln Center (it's right across the street) and conveniently close to Central Park and all the museums around it, this is...

Last week I stayed there for work - 3 nights, and the fourth time in four years. Nothing is perfect and what made this stay special was the service...

I had a very good stay here. My trip was planned around opera, so being across the street from Lincoln Center made the Empire Hotel the perfect location. The doormen, front desk staff (especially Anthony), and housekeeping staff were all pleasant, helpful, and efficient. My room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. I will definitely stay here again!

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.
