Loved the lobby, it even smelled amazing! Hotel halls were very stale smelling & beds were rock hard. Lobby bar & rooftop were very nice & relaxing, drinks were similar in price to other restaurants in town.

I’ve stayed in budget hotels that are better than this 4* You could forgive the tired and shabbiness of the rooms perhaps if the staff were friendly and accommodating but unfortunately they are as rude and unhelpful as I’ve ever come across. I pride myself on being a polite and respectful guest – I was in a room that was...

We stayed here on our visit to NYC to see my daughter who is working at Julliard. The hotel is conveniently located near Julliard, Lincoln Center, Central Park and Columbus circle. The subway is a very short walk. The hotel is beautiful with a nice dark wood lobby and bar. Staff are extremely polite and helpful.

We recently stayed at the Empire Hotel for two nights. Upon arriving, we checked in and were told there was a complimentary upgrade to a Superior King Room (we originally booked a queen room) which was a nice surprise. The room was very clean but small which we expect when staying in New York City. The housekeeping staff was very...

Truly in the heart of it all. And you're paying for it, but if you want all the amenities of an expensive hotel, this one is not the one for you - unless you want to roll out of bed into Lincoln Center, in which case there is not other place like it.

This was my first time to return to the Empire Hotel (on 63rd just a short block from the Lincoln Center) since it was renovated. In the past it was one of my most frequent places to stay. The new look is quite elegant. And then I took the elevator to my room. The hallways have a s t r...

Absolutely amazing! The rooms were luxurious, so comfortable and it was a perfect location for the NYC Half Marathon. We were just about a half mile from the start which meant we could maximize our sleep the night before and getting back after the race we took the 2,3 train to Lincoln Center. I loved crawling into bed after the...

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.
