Spending a night in a hotel is always fun, even if it's in your own city. Empire Hotel, a hop, skip and jump away from Lincoln Center, was our home for the night of our friend's birthday. Our cute double Queen bed suite was complete with a desk and a lounge area that made the room comfortably spacious.
Upon entering the hotel, one might feel as if they've escaped the concrete jungle and have stepped into the wild jungle of Africa. From the animal printed furniture to the forest tree-scaped walls, the hotel is completely dressed in a sexy safari theme. (Note: What's funny is that with my sexy cheetah print dress, I fit right in.)
I'm such a sucker for details like the cute little baggy that the toilet paper came in.
Empire Hotel is also known for its rooftop lounge, which is not restricted to guests. Whether it be for happy hour lounging or nighttime dancing, Empire's rooftop lounge is certainly a hot spot in NYC.
I enjoyed my brief time at Empire and would certainly recommend it to anyone, whether you're visiting or want a brief staycation.
