Everything was great: Restaurant and bar, location, cleanliness...except for the large bug in the shower, which scared my wife greatly. But being across from Lincoln Center made up for it. Having P.J. Clarke's in the building didn't hurt either.

Hotel was a perfect location for my needs. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was nice except for a couple of odd issues. (No convenient place to plug in charger. Bathroom door was cracked and chipped though bathroom had been nicely renovated). I would stay there again.

We spent two nights at the Empire and enjoyed every moment. It's across the street from Lincoln Center, where we attended a Philharmonic concert and guided tour. Central Park is one block over. A short walk brings you to Columbus Circle, with subway access to other parts of the city. Our room was a little small, but immaculate and comfortable....

Arrived at the Empire hotel last night and received a warm welcome from Brendan at the door - was very quick to get our bags inside to get out of the cold, and so friendly too. Patrick at the front desk was also quick and efficient - much appreciated after a long day of travel.

I had booked a surprise for my husband for one night stay at The Empire Hotel for vanentines weekend. I have been to this hotel before for a New Years Eve party which we enjoyed. The lobby area and mezzanine decor looks beautiful. The roof top is also worth checking out! I was disappointed however on how small the rooms...

I stayed one night in a room on the 11th floor. The city view was beautiful, the room was clean, well-decorated, and had great amenities. Of course, I was in a rush to leave the next morning and inadvertently left something behind. I called the front desk, they alerted housekeeping and were able to secure it for me. The security...

I picked the hotel on price and location after hearing mixed reviews from relatives living nearby. The staff is great. The location couldn't be better. The room was small but nicely fixed up. It's a perfect location for Lincoln Center and the west side.

The best thing about this property is its location. If you are headed to Lincoln Center, this location is tops. Also, accessibility to Central Park is a plus. Otherwise the hotel is pretty average for Manhattan.

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.
