Stayed here for three nights during a trip to see a gig at the Villa Marina.
We were allocated a small room on check in but moved to a much larger suite on request at no extra charge.. The Empress is clean, warm and comfortable and we had the feeling that when the weather closed in, which it often did, the hotel was a good place to retire to for the night.
Be aware though that the hotel, like the rest of the resort, seems to cater mainly for the Grey Pound, so don't expect anything more lively than a tinkling piano in the large bar and conservatory area. The upside to this is that they know how to put on a good breakfast, the only hotel we've found where the baked beans are kept piping hot.
We would happily recommend The Empress to anybody staying in Douglas.
