“Planning to to stay again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2011

So I stayed at the empress over the summer, last week of July to be exact. I stayed during the week, because I had seen and heard just how rowdy it can get on the weekends. I have to say my stay was sublime, my only complaint was just how much my room smelled of cigarettes.

Room Tip: ask for an ocean view!

I got a room at the Empress Hotel for my aunt, 3 sisters and myself. We danced the night away at Club Paradise and then we took the elevator up to our comfy room. I can'wait to stay there again, the accomodations, location and staff were great. Thank you Empress for a fantastic stay!

I travel on business all over the East Coast and always stay at different hotels to try to figure out the best fit for me. It was Empress Hotel. The staff of friendly and sincere. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and had an ocean view from the third floor. Whenever I come back to NJ, I will definitely be staying here. Reasonable prices and the boardwalk is right there. I hope this hotel keeps up the good work.

My 2 friends & I were looking for a place to have a girls weekend @ a resonable price. This was it! We had an oceanfront view from the 4th floor. The room was nice & clean. Staff was very friendly. Would recommend it to anyone!

The Empress is across the street from the Carousel where Revision Theater is. If you are in Asbury, see a play there and you will be blown away. The Stone Pony is a block away and not always opened.
The hotel is clean and the beds were comfortable. The only complaint I would have is the bathroom. It could use a remodel with space to put makeup/bath items.
It has a nightclub attached so can be noisy. Ask for a place on the other end of the bldg on the fourth floor and you probably won't hear it. Although there is a bar across the way that is just as noisy and the sound from there carries. They set up a breakfast, just on weekends, that consist of coffee, tea, bagels, and pastry. Like every beach place, eating out isn't cheap. The italian restaurant across the street is very good. The didn't have chicken parm on the menu but made it for us anyway. Everyone was happy with their food.
Beach passes are $6.00 on weekends.
The hotel has free parking which is nice.
