Expert Reviews
Lonely Planet
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.
Village Voice
The Empire Hotel Rooftop offers precisely what you'd expect from a high-end establishment of this caliber: beautiful 12th-floor views, a classy ambiance, and an elite crowd.
DK Eyewitness
Only the 1920s metal canopy remains of the old Empire, there is now a dramatic entry, chic lobby and bar, stunning rooftop setting for cocktails, and an outdoor plunge pool for guests.
