After a day spent roaming the Big Apple, you can return to the Empire for an afternoon cocktail on the rooftop deck, which includes a bar and lounge, seasonal outdoor pool, and private cabanas. The East Terrace has a convertible glass roof for rain-or-shine partying. The hotel has a resident DJ on the weekend, and signature cocktails and appetizers are served. For a cozy evening meal, hearty chowder and ales are prepared in Chef Ed Brown’s elegant and casual Chowder House.
Perfect for unwinding, the rooms at the Empire feature beds with Italian Frette linens, showers with teak flooring and tropical rain showerheads, refrigerators and iPod docking stations. Contact your concierge to reserve a chauffeur, for turndown service, or for an overnight shoeshine.
