How it Ranks: The Empire Hotel ranks #130 out of 805 New York City Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.
Our Take: Located just one block away from Central Park, The Empire Hotel pampers guests with high-end amenities, like a pool deck, a rooftop bar and lounge, and a chic dining venue, Ed's Chowder House. Specializing in laid-back luxury, each of the low-key 422 accommodations features bright pops of color, modern accents, and upscale extras, like high-end bath products, iPod docking stations, and plush Frette linens. However, some recent visitors do cite lacking customer service and a high noise level as two major drawbacks. If you're looking for a quiet urban oasis, you may want to consider bedding down elsewhere.
