The Empire Hotel NYC is a mid- to high-end hotel located in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, New York. It is also a hotel owned by Chuck Bass, the main character of the Gossip Girl. There are many scenes in the show. The Imperial Hotel can be called a small base of Gossip Girl. Some cocktail names in the rooftop open-air lounge are even For the characters in the play, such as Lonely Boy, whoever saw the play knows who it is.
Once you enter the hotel entrance, you will see a very grand lobby with a bar next to it. The front desk is on the right hand side of the door. This time I stayed in a standard queen room (STANDARD QUEEN). A credit card will be required to check in at the front desk. Some of the funds will be pre-authorized for use as a deposit. It may be more than the actual check-in, but the amount will be adjusted after check-out, so don't worry.
After check in, take the elevator to the room. The decoration of the room makes people feel very comfortable. The size of the queen size bed (sleeping 1~2 people) is not bad. The bathroom is also quite large, unlike many hotels that have a narrow feeling. The desks and chairs are wooden and very comfortable. There are snacks, wine and capsule coffee machines on the desk (for a fee). In addition to the coat cap, there is a small refrigerator in the cloakroom with lots of non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages (for a fee). It should be noted that there are no slippers and toothbrushes in the room (the disadvantages of many American hotels).
Hotel service is in place, the front desk service is very good, what is the need (such as room service) can call from the room, the staff will be very patient to answer and help. The
hotel's WiFi is available for a fee, which is a disadvantage of many mid- to high-end hotels in the United States.
Location and transportation, the hotel is very close to the subway station, you can see the hotel from the subway station, walk for 1-2 minutes. The surrounding environment is very good, very close to the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and Central Park, just a few minutes walk away.
Dining, the hotel comes with 2 restaurant restaurants (LOBBY BAR and ED'S CHOWDER HOUSE), a seasonal rooftop outdoor pool and Pool Deck and Rooftop Bar & Lounge, worth the experience . The price of a cocktail at the rooftop open-air lounge is between 10 and 20. Moreover, the room service can also be called directly from the room, and the menu is on the desk. The feeling of staying at
overall is that the hotel's facilities and services are in line with its price, health and comfort are good, it is a pleasant stay.
