Verified Reviews of Empire Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Location"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Excellent location. Near Lincoln Center, Central Park, restaurants, subways and buses. Bed and linens very good and bathroom and room size good.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
08-Feb-2020 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Feb 07 to Sat Feb 08 2020 at a $113.58 average nightly rate.
"Girls Weekend Away."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The web site hasn't been updated, so items shown on the web site are no longer in the room which was disappointing and we had to ask for our "complimentary" bathrobes. The room location was at the end of the hall and the hallway was very dark and we had a difficult time reading room numbers. The room itself was very comfortable and the staff was very helpful, friendly and accommodating.

14-Nov-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Tue Nov 05 to Thu Nov 07 2019 at a $254.25 average nightly rate.
"Great Stay."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Everything was perfect, except that the room my boyfriend and I stayed at didnt have the mini bar stocked or complimentary amenities(water bottles) in the main room. The bathroom was stocked and the room was made. Thank you for the fine time.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
05-Mar-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Thu Feb 28 to Sat Mar 02 2019 at a $125.40 average nightly rate.
"Staff is very rude."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Well over all the staff is rude once they know you book the room with a third party involved, I mentioned I was Military and they seam to not care. The standard queen bed it look more like or is the same sizes as a futon bed with only pillows for one person. An other thing bad or poor ventilation in the room and in the bathroom. Defiantly not recommendable, specially if you serve in the Arm forces of the United States of America.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
08-Nov-2018 Verified Review, stayed from Wed Nov 07 to Thu Nov 08 2018 at a $220.00 average nightly rate.
"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.
