The Empire Hotel NY is a very hip and trendy location, but they tried a little too hard with the design of their showers! We stayed on the 5th floor for a weekend and with the first attempt to shower, we noticed that there was no shower door, so the bathroom floor gets water everywhere while people shower! I am in construction/real estate for a living and said there is no way that was supposed to be designed that way, but we were there for a fun trip, so I didn't think much of it. The second night, we came back to our room and while laying in bed noticed that part of the ceiling had been painted with primer to cover a water leak from the bathroom in the room above us! After discuss the issue with the front desk, they said they were AWARE of the water/mold problem and were doing their best to go floor to floor to resolve the issue. I said 'so I've been sleeping in a room with mold for 2 nights and breathing it in with your knowledge of it' and his response was 'we are doing our very best to fix the design flaw and hope that you'll come back soon!' NOT A CHANCE
