    Good value for NYC
    We stayed 4 nights over World Pride, location was convenient, room was spacious for NYC... it has a nice roof top bar/pool area and a great lobby bar area. There seems to be a lack of front desk staff so you have to wait a bit but everything else was great.

    Poor 2.0

    I cannot believe this is advertised as a 4-star hotel - it struggles to reach 3-star. Location is convenient and lobby is fine, but once you reach your guest room, it all goes downhill. Oh, and you will get a bill after the fact for charges you did not incur. Room is dingy, dirty, smelly. Worst bathroom I've ever seen in an NYC hotel. So small the trash can is shoved inside a cupboard. Woodwork is warped and paint chipping due to humidity. Leaky and rusting fixtures. Melted toilet seat, scratched toilet bowl. Wifi dropped continually - like every few minutes. EXCESSIVE hallway noise. Others complained about the AC noise but that was my saving grace as it blocked out all the carrying on out in the hallways. Had to begged to get free tea and water replenished but still never got the tea. Got a bill after the fact for mini charges although it was established and agreed at checkout these weren't incurred. Also, bogus "residence fee" of 20 per day was supposed to be waived because of all the issues. Of course they still billed me. BE WARNED!

    Hidden Gem!
    Great hotel, great staff, great location. My only concern was the size of the room which was tight even for NYC and my air conditioning unit sounded like it was going to explode at any moment. But that is also expected in NYC.

    Empire Hotel
    The Hotel has an excellent mid-Manhattan location close to Columbia Circle. The doormen and front desk people were excellent -- pleasant and informative. The rooms were a bit small but well appointed and maintained. The air conditioning unit was a bit noisy but not so much to affect sleep. The area was quiet. Central park and easy access to transit. Great dining options in the area. Wifi available as needed.
