Welcome to the Empire Hotel

A Classic New York Experience on the Upper West Side

Residing at the Gateway to Upper West Side, The Empire Hotel reflects the earthy tones and modernism of illustrious nearby neighbors, Central Park and Lincoln Center. Step past our Art Deco façade to find yourself greeted by bold and glamorous interiors with the vibe of a retro NYC lounge from the 1960s. Checking in, you are warmly welcomed by our friendly & professional Empire Hotel Team whose attentive, personalized hospitality makes you feel like you are at a home away from home, it is more than a hotel.

Whether business or leisure brings you to NYC, we go beyond merely providing a place to stay and deliver the Manhattan experience. You will find more than just great hotel deals here. With three subway stations steps away from our front 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) the Empire Hotel is your key to the city. We are New York's only 4 star hotel with a Rooftop Pool in the Upper West Side. 

As a retreat from the New York City bustle and energy, our hotel immerses you in relaxing ambiance and luxurious comfort after a day of travel, meetings or city 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 or happy hour, take in glimpses of the Upper West Side skyline and Central Park with alfresco cocktails at our 12th floor Empire Rooftop Bar & Lounge. During our summer season, join us poolside at the only outdoor pool lounge in the Upper West Side, and take a selfie in front of our iconic, nostalgic neon Empire Hotel sign. Our private cabanas and daily happy hour specials can't be missed.

Welcome to your NYC pied-a-terre, combining big city energy with a warm hospitality touch to ensure a top-notch NYC experience.
