Lonely Planet review

This old hotel was remade a few years back, complete with canopied pool deck, sexy rooftop bar and a dimly lit lobby lounge studded with zebra-print settees. The 400-plus rooms come in various configurations, and feature brightly-hued walls with plush dark leather furnishings.

Our independent authors have visited Empire Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Upper West Side & Central Park.
