The Empire Hotel - New York

With its modern décor, it is hard to believe that The Empire Hotel is one of New York’s oldest hotels, dating back to the 1890s. The chic candlelit lobby, high ceilings and black-and-white floors are accented with animal print and splashes of color. The bright design extends throughout this whimsical and fun property from the guestrooms all the way up to the rooftop pool.

What We Love

  • The hotel is minutes from Lincoln Center, Juilliard School of Music, Metropolitan Opera, New York Philharmonic and Central Park
  • The Empire’s rooftop is a great place to enjoy a cocktail and gaze out at New York’s breathtaking skyline
  • One of only a few Manhattan hotels that offer a rooftop pool
  • Guestroom décor is inspired by earthy Central Park colors mixed with modern Lincoln Center-inspired features
  • The fitness center is open 24-hours a day, offering flexibility to health-conscious travelers
  • In the movie Sex and the City 2, the Empire lobby is the spot where Samantha meets the hoteliers from Dubai
