Hotel in neglect. Very Few positives.
Upon check-in, we parked across the street because there was no other option. We used which was a huge mistake because payment at the counter was a headache for the staff to navigate since we wanted an upgrade. My giftcard was also completely useless, of which I regret wasting credit card points. Parking in the small lot and walking around the hotel was a pain in the arse. The actual room was in serious need of upgrades from the last renovations that likely took place in the 1970s, minus the appliances. There were so few power outlets, a few were expanded by the staff with extension cords and outlet multipliers you would find at Walmart that turn a 2 outlet into a 6, which was still full of the (broken) television, a refrigerator (which should have had its own outlet) and a microwave. There was no physical telephone in the room and the front desk was completely unreachable without physically going to the front desk. The television was just there, since someone prior to my arrival ripped the cable from the TV, pulling the coaxle cable connector completely from the TV. The shower head was broken and showering was difficult and uncomfortable. The sink had no space for anything in the small space. The bed was stiff and like a sheet of wood. The only good thing about this room was the view. Our neighbors in room 332 were smoking cigarettes in their room, which was irritating our eyes, as nonsmokers. This hotel has taken a down turn. It used to be better.

Hi ! I came here to see a show at the Stone Pony. Place is 2 blocks away I was able to park in their small parking lot; there are warnings it won’t accommodate all guests. There are spots marked as ‘do not park’, they are serious, do not park in the ‘do not park’ zone. The Empress has a worn look to her. But clean. My room was small, and one of the lights was out. There were few free electric outlets, and I had to unplug something to plug my appliance in. There’s a small bathroom. The toilet tissue was strangely under the sink. The sink’s cold and hot water taps were reversed from the usual. But as I found out, the water was as you expect it; the ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ knobs were on the wrong taps. They have WiFi, but it didn’t reach the 4th (top) floor where I stayed. There is a (gay) nightclub on the first floor. You can hear it even in the 4th floor. OK, so why 3 stars after my complaining ? Location, price and a nice staff. I’d definitely come back, knowing it’s limitations.
