    Fair 4.0
    They certainly could do better
    Ok, it's NY, expensive for what you get, ok very very expensive! However, they could fix the shower fixtures and change the damp bloated bathroom door. We had breakfast at Starbucks next door.

    Fine Hotel. Great location. I raised my family in this area. Anything you want is right there. It was great to be back. Also, The club on the roof is great if the schedule is too tight to head downtown. My bath was a bit too small and it's time to update the room fridge, coffee, microwave. There is a Starbux right down stairs.

    Luis was great! He made the stay great
    Luis was great! He made the stay great, he upgraded us to a Suite with a city view for our honeymoon thanks to Luis. The room overall was great. Good location, great waitstaff. The two head shower was a nice touch. The pool area was closed, which is where the iconic Empire Hotel sign is located. The city was great and Hotel Empire was centrally located.

    Fine - nothing more
    There was only one mirror and in bathroom - none in room. The bed was comfortable but not great. Good gym! And clean - most up to date but then door of bathroom was in awful shape - so very mixed messages.

    Close to Lincoln Center
    The location of this hotel is perfect if you want to be close to the Metropolitan Opera and this is the major reason we stay there in our visits to New York. The experience is mostly positive: comfortable, clean, very good service. There are minor signs of decay as the paint in the bathroom door. The bathroom is very small and the heater is noisy to start. We stay there again.
