The Empire Hotel

The brilliant red neon sign atop the Empire Hotel has beckoned visitors for almost a century. With a recent renovation, the hotel maintains its place in the hospitality scene of NYC.

As one of the oldest hotels in New York City, the Empire Hotel is filled with history and charm.

Traditional, Yet Modern

The sophisticated public spaces of the hotel are pure New York glamour–golds, blacks, and tans set off with sharp animal print accents and geometric rugs. The design scheme carries over into the guestrooms, with dark accent walls, starburst-shaped mirrors and leather headboards. Rooms feature wifi (for a fee), iPod docking stations, and flatscreen TVs.

Party and Play

On the rooftop is a seasonal outdoor pool with lounging area and bar. Ed’s Chowder House on the mezzanine offers seafood classics and a raw. The Lobby Bar has a hip, sleek with lighting to make everyone look good. The hotel has a prime location, one block away from Central Park, across from Lincoln Center and an easy walk to the theater district.
