Expert Reviews
It’s as swank as its surroundings (it’s right across the street from Lincoln Center), and even the smallest rooms have a feeling of luxury to them.
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.
