The Empire needs an upgrade
I've stayed numerous times. The hotel doesn't have any great amenities anymore and the vibe was dead. Room was not as clean as it should have been

A good stay
I booked this hotel for its proximity to Lincoln Center - it's definitely very close! The staff are great - very polite and accommodating. The room was very big but poorly lit and a little frayed around the edges. I think it was a fair price for the quality of the hotel and the location. I really appreciated being able to securely leave my luggage before my room was ready. The bar on the highest floor was fantastic.

Room not in the greatest condition
I was shocked to learn Empire imposes a $50 early check-in fee. Another way to raise the price of the hotel room passively. Add to the "facility" fee of $22.89, it is almost worth not staying at the Empire, as the "additional" fees could be upwards of $70. I was also shocked at the general condition of our hotel room. The room was cold, and there was no thermostat.. The inside bathroom door lock looked like a racoon had gnawed on it. The carpet looked like it was stained. There was no longer the coffee maker amenity. The long table under the TV had the leather peeling off, and some of the wallpaper was peeling. It feels like the Empire has fallen on hard times, and you are scrimping on maintenance at the expense of a nice stay for customers. The lobby used to have a nice bar, but it is not there. It makes me think twice about rebooking. I have been a steady customer for at least 10 years, staying at the Empire 4 -5 times a year. I am looking for another hotel because of this experience.

On top of lincoln center!
The empire hotel is conveniently located across the street from Lincoln Center, which makes it an ideal stay if you are popping into the city to enjoy a performance. Our room was clean, with windows facing the promenade. The staff provided bottled water at check-in, and were very nice through our stay.
