Heat ceased twice. Had to go to the front desk in person to ask to that the engineer be sent up. On checkout was not asked how was my stay so I volunteered that the heat was inoperative in the room. I was met with a cavalier indifference. Would have thought that they would want the information so that it...

Good restaurants within walking distance if Hotel cannot satisfy. The rooms are very comfortable. Off street rooms are quiet. In house restaurant hours and menus are not convenient but there are several outside within walking distance

We really enjoyed our stay at the Empire Hotel. Its location is very good, right next to Central Park and near 2 subway stations. It is still rather quiet (as quiet as New York City can be ;-)) but within 15 minutes walking distance to Times-Square and the most important part of Broadway. The staff was very helpful in every...

This Hotel has all the conveniences and comforts for a more than pleasant stay on the Upper West Side. I have stayed at this hotel many times and have never had a problem. The staff is very attentive and the lobby bar is a gem!

Friendly staff, clean and neat place to stay :) I stayed all alone at the hotel but friendly staff made me comfortable. I was also able to enjoy roof top bar with my friend and they loved it. I want to comeback someday soon:)

We booked a queen standard room and were in room 524. This room was amazing compared to our friends who got "upgraded" from their standard queen rooms to king rooms. We had a full size tub and rain shower. Tub was large enough for me to take a bath in after a long day of walking around the city. We...

I love this hotel. It's really nice and the location is perfect. The rooms are small so if you want more space, book a suite. I've stayed here 3 times and I will definitely be going back. It's close to the park and it's pretty central.

First of all let me get started by saying this was my third time staying at the empire, and the last time (in the middle of the summer) the ac in my room was broken. So I arrive and was immediately charged a USD45 fee for sending a package over before hand, ok a little disappointing but paid the fee...

We arrived on Sunday evening excited about a few night stay in the city center. We had expected the hotel and rooms to be smaller than other cities based on common sense and other reviews. this was of course the case and not a problem. The rooms them selves were quite tired and dated, with some areas (such as 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.
