The Bad
Guests were typically happy at this hotel however patrons that did not totally enjoy their stay often criticized the hotel's age, the parkade, or they found their room to be noisy.

Several guests judged the Empire Landmark Hotel to be a "dated" property. Some guests said their room needed upgrading, some said that the property was aging, while others just said that the hotel was "older." Occasionally a guest explicitly said that he/she thought the hotel needed renovating or remodeling.

Guests who commented on the parking did not have many good things to say. Multiple guests indicated that the parkade felt unsafe and they did not like the idea of being there at night.

Some guests also said that they were disturbed by noise in their rooms. These guests blamed a couple different sources, one being other guests and the other being the elevators at the property.
