Welcome to the Empire Hotel
A Modern Stay Experience on the Upper West Side
Residing at the Gateway to Upper West Side, The Empire Hotel reflects the earthy tones and modernism of our illustrious nearby neighbors, Central Park and Lincoln Center. Step past our Art Deco façade to find yourself greeted by bold, eclectic interiors with the vibe of a retro, bohemian NYC lounge from the 1960s. Checking in, you are warmly welcomed by the friendly & professional Empire Hotel Team whose attentive, personalized hospitality makes us feel more like a home away from home than hotel.
Whether business or leisure brings you to NYC, we go beyond merely providing a place to stay and deliver the Manhattan experience, and great hotel deals you’re looking for. With subway stations steps away from our door and the World’s Stage of Performing Arts next door at Lincoln Center (The Metropolitan Opera, Lincoln Center Theater, New York City Ballet, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Film at Lincoln Center) this is your key to the city.
As a retreat from the New York City bustle and energy, our hotel immerses you in relaxing ambiance and comfort after a day of travel, meetings or exploration. Each guestroom is an inviting yet sophisticated space with geometrically patterned carpeting and wall coverings complemented by deluxe bedding and bathroom amenities.
For a nightcap, join us in our decadent Lobby Bar, a sepia-toned gem that draws a cosmopolitan mix of neighbors and hotel guests. Or take in glimpses of the Upper West Side skyline and Central Park with alfresco cocktails at our 12th floor Empire Rooftop Bar & Lounge, a poolside lounge in the shadow of our iconic, nostalgic Empire Hotel sign.
Welcome to your NYC pied-a-terre, combining big city energy with a warm touch to ensure a top-notch experience for any visit.
Retro chic and sophisticated, yet warm and inviting, our beautifully appointed Rooms and Suites are the perfect urban retreat.
