Good location / below average amenities

The central location was great, but our room was not ready until 5 p.m.( 2 hours later than promised). We were there for a family function at 7 which we barely made. Elevators were not working well, sometimes getting stuck. We had to pay extra for WiFi, every bottle of water (small ones cost $8). No bathrobes or towel slippers. Bathroom was tiny, supplies minimum. Thankfully, the bed was very comfortable.The bar man in the lobby was friendly.

return visit

I have stayed at the Empire before simply because of its location. Right across from Lincoln Center it is most convenient for attending the opera and concerts. What i did not like, and never noticed before was how they could nickel and dime you. The valet parking was 70.00. I choose to park myself on the next street for 56.00. In the room they provided a Kureig machine but the coffee pods were 3.00 each. The bottled water in the room was average size for 7.50 each. Come on.....for 4 stars i saw no real amenities.

Fantastic stay for one night in NY

Traveled to NY for one night for a conference at Columbus Circle in Midtown. Location was perfect and unbeatable price for the quality of the hotel compared to what was available in the area. I checked in and was told that my 2 double bed couldn't be accommodated so they upgraded me to a one bedroom suite which worked out perfectly. Nice lobby bar and great all round service. Amenities were not over the top but suitable for my needs. Boutique style was a nice touch as well. Would stay there again.

Perfect Location..Hip Hotel

This hotel was perfect for us..perfect central location within walking distance to central park..and times square. Lots of funky cafes and bars. The hotel had a roof top bar which was really cool. I thought the hptel was really good for younger age group. The only down fall was the pillows..so lumpy and uncomfortable. We asked for new ones but they just brought us more lumpy pillows. Everything else too class couldnt get any better. The concierges Chris and Yuri where very helpful in particular and so nice definately ask them for help.

Great location

I think this hotel has a great location. Nice restaurants and shops close by but still not in the middle of touristy Times Square. The rooms are small, and the beds and pillows are not especially comfortable, but it was ok for the one night I was staying. For that reason I am not sure I would recommend it for a longer stay, but it's fine for a weekend getaway. Hotel staff is nice and the concierge was really helpful.

Great location... Great hotel

This hotel was even better than I expected. I'm a young guy who was staying in New York for the first time on my own. It was a safe area within walking distance of time square.. The theatre district and so much more. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful.. And the hotel was very comfortable. The only downside was the mini bar... After arriving from Australia and it's 24 hour flight... $7.50 for a tiny bottle of water was ridiculous. However, there is a 24 hour convenience store right next door help with all those good cravings!

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk down to Times Square both in the daytime and at night time. Try to get a ticket or two to some of the broadway shows. They are spectacular!
