The Empire Hotel
A towering red-brick building just blocks from Central Park, The Empire Hotel is a New York institution. The lobby alone makes a luxurious first impression with its bold monochromatic striped floors, flowing drapes and golden furnishings. Get a taste of city sophistication sipping on a Gossip Girl-inspired Chuck Bass cocktail at the marble-topped lobby bar, or head to the rooftop for a relaxing dip in the pool before reclining on loungers – bathed in the cinematic red glow of its mammoth neon sign. Retreat to the comfort of your room, relaxing amid animal prints on your pillowy king- or queen-size bed.
