Verified Reviews of Empire Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Fine Hotel and Great Location"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The location of the hotel is great. It is across the street from Lincoln Center, a block from Central Park and a short walk to both Midtown and Broadway and to nice restaurants and shops along Columbus Avenue. The room was large and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would definitely consider staying at the Empire again.
