    Rooms are small and in dire need of renovation, but you can’t beat the location across the street from Lincoln Center and the rooftop is worth a visit. Also, you can make like you’re Chuck Bass.

    Don't ever stay on the 11th floor unless you are able to fall asleep with high-decibel music.

    Haggle with the concierge to get a lower rate or upgrade with your room. If your Sicilian or Italian use it to bond!

    Nice rooftop view but rooms are really tiny.

    This is an elegant hotel close to Lincoln Center & a short walk to Central Park. It is not cheap but heck, what is in NYC, right? But you are getting reasonable value here for what you pay for though.

    Amazing trip for gossip girl fanatics! Grand and dark lobby that reminds you of the one and only Chuck bass. Any girl will feel like Blair Waldorf when you arrive to the Empire Hotel.

    Lobby is a beauty. Room decor was not so great..

    One of those rooftop bars that makes you feel like you are in the center of everything. Great views. Inside and outside seating areas.

    The bar really does look like the sort of place that Chuck Bass would frequent/own. Xoxo

    The location is great, but it not worth the room cost. Small rooms with old decrepit finishing.

    Never accept the room 841, it feels like a closet and the AC does not work properly. The cleaning is very superficial. I will not go back to this hotel 😝

    Friendly people, great location, stylish hotel. Don't expect too much from their breakfast, you will only have bagels, pastries and classic corn flakes with paper containers and plastic cutlery.

    Avoid. Location is great (and the staff are nice), but broken showers, maids who ignore "do not disturb" signs (and who "accidentally" walk off with electronic devices), and more plague this place.

    Great location(near lincoln corner). I guess they have a club outside but there is 2 things I didn't like, 1:the elevators and slow and you have to wait 30 minutes. 2:the rooms are tiny:/

    Incompetent hotel. A request for a knife at 812am only produced a knock at my door at 836am, after multiple calls saying I was in a hurry.

    No shorts? Seriously in this 90 degree weather for a outdoor bar? For real shorts can be more stylish and chic than crotch showing bandage dresses these hoes are wearing. Skip this place. Next.
