I spent 9/24/22-9/27/22 in New York. We were celebrating my sister's birthday. They arrived on 9/23/22 and I came in a day later. I came later because I attended the Alicia Keys concert in Atlanta the evening before. When she sang New York with Jay-Z(not present), I was so excited to be in the New York atmosphere. Hotel Edison staff greeted me with kindness and professionalism. It is such a classy place. I felt very secure and did not have to wait around for someone to answer any questions I had. Everyday was the same. They did not fall short on guest service at all. We checked out on Tuesday morning, but left our luggage at the hotel(a very small fee) so we could attend the Sheri Sheppard Show and sightsee more. When we finally left on Tuesday and got to the airport, I realized a small bag was missing. I called the hotel. They requested all of the detail and within 15 minutes, they were calling me back to let me know they found my bag and gave me all of the details for getting it shipped to me. Thrycwere amazing. My neice also left her retainer in a cup in the room. They found it before we left for to go to the airport and had it for her to take home. The entire staff and especially the security team sealed the deal for me. Security for the win. Thank you for all you do. I think this is the person that helped me on the phone. So amazing and needs a raise. Jahaida Escotto Security Supervisor Hotel Edison 228 West 47th Street New York, N.Y. 10036 Office: (212) 840-5000 Ext: 7240

Hotel's Favourite
My parents stayed at the Hotel Edison in 1951 on their honeymoon and came back to celebrate their 70th anniversary . They were treated like roylaty by the entire staff and i can not say enought wonderful things about the hotel and the staff . The customer service can not be beat and the staff can not do enough for their guests . The hotel is very old time elegant and the rooms are nice and clean and Covid safe. They upgraded my mom and dad to a suite which was lovely adn due to their age they had a walk in shower , which was very thoughful. Security is tight , you can not get up to the rooms withought a key car , which you also need for the elevator . My parents raved about the staff and the service that they received . The Edison had a team meeting before my parents arrival to let the staff know about the special occassion , so everyone greeted them by name and congratulated them on their anniversary .Special thanks to Scott and Rommel for making this a perfect weekend . MY parents are planning on returning for the 75th . i live in Manhattan and am going to send all of my out of town guests to The Hotel Edison because it is beautiful, clean and safe and they treat everyone like family . Thank you to all the staff as you made this weekend so special !!!

Dear bettercallbeth, Happy Anniversary!!! What a joy meeting your lovely parents. Thank you so much for this glowing review. We work hard towards an exceptional guest experience, and it means the world to us. We like to do little things around the historic Hotel Edison, that's what makes us who we are. We are very lucky to call this magical hotel "work" but truly make it feel like home. We love to share our home to you and your family. I can speak for all of us at The Hotel Edison when I say that we cannot wait for their return on their 75th Anniversary!!! Best regards, Rommel Gopez Director of Guest Relations

Booked the Edison for a family trip to NY where the highlights were going to see The Lion King, seeing Times Square and going up to The Summit at One Vanderbilt. The hotel is very well placed to be within walking distance of all these locations and surrounded by great places to eat like Trattoria Tri Colori which is right next door. We drove to the city and previous reviews mentioned that there is a parking garage in front of the hotel, it's about $50 a night with the discount provided because of our stay in the Hotel and it certainly beat looking for parking elsewhere and walking around Manhattan with luggage and bags. The hotel staff is great, super friendly and helpful. If you need to get a cab, schedule a tour, make dinner reservations, just ask and they will help. You'll need a hotel key to enter into the elevator area and to go up the elevator, which is nice because it limits non-guests from crowding the elevators, although there are maybe 8-9 elevators they are not large. The room had 2 queen beds, space around the beds can feel tight as there is an office table that doubles as coffee and beverage prep table. The bathroom is small, fits a full shower with glass door, sink and toilet, so it is crowded if more than 1 person is inside. We were a group of 3 adults and 1 kid and did not find this to be an issue. My only issue was that the hot water was tempered at most, this is not an issue after walking around town all day while its still warm(ish) outside but if it was cold outside this shower would not have warmed you up. The stay includes a grab-and-go breakfast at a restaurant/bar inside the hotel or a $5 per person breakfast at Friedman's. The Friedman's $5 menu includes the choice of 2 egg plate, french toasts, yogurt with granola and a couple of other items I don't recall. It also includes drip coffee and tea, we opted to pay extra for café latte which was mostly frothed milk. I did not do the grab-and-go breakfast so can't say much for what it includes. There are other cafes and bakeries around so the next day we went to Masseria Caffe & Bakery and had one of the best Lattes and croissants ever, please check this place out. We had dinner at Trattoria Tri-Colori and Carmines, both are awesome and there is such a wonderful mix of places to eat that you can't go wrong. If you're going to see a Broadway show you can walk out of your room 10 minutes before, it's at most an 5-8 minute walk from the Edison door to most of the theaters. As you walk onto 7th Ave you'll be in the middle of Times Square with different acts and music on the sidewalk, the giant screens and colorful stores. We had a great time on our NY trip and picking The Edison was a great place to be in the middle of it all.

The Hotel Edison was in a terrific location for us...right off Times Square. For three adults traveling together it had just the right bed configuration...and they were very comfortable. .The grab and go breakfasts made the mornings easy. Staff was helpful. But the highlight of our stay was our Streetwise New York/Triumph Tour of Times Square and Rockefeller Center. . It was a free walking tour offered by the hotel. Our guide Sonya was knowledgeable, personable, interesting and the time flew by. After many trips to NYC I learned so much more from her. She was terrific! I highly recommend this tour...just sorry we did not have time to take any of the other tours they offer while we were there

I traveled with my husband for business and took the time to know more about NYC. Hotel Edison was great and they offer free walking tours which are an excellent way to learn about so many interesting things. Dan and Sonya were our guides and we were happy to walk with them. I highly recommend the walking tours with Streetwise New York.

My husband and I just got home from a weekend in the city seeing Broadway shows. However, the best surprise of our trip came from staying at Hotel Edison. From the moment we checked-in, we were continually impressed with everything about this hotel. Special thanks to Rommel and his guest services team for going above and beyond to make our stay extra-special! We stayed in a Preferred King Room on the 8th floor. It was clean, modern, and spacious for a NYC hotel room. Our view wasn't the best but we weren't in the room all that much other than to sleep, shower, and relax here and there. There was some noise from outside at first but we never experienced any other noise in our room for the rest of the trip. The A/C in our room was fantastic. The bathroom was clean....loved the larger shower and amenities. The location of the hotel is 15/10. Literally next door to Broadway theaters....we were in heaven! We saw 4 shows this trip and it was so nice to be right next door to most of the theaters we were going to. The Rum House was the perfect spot for post-show cocktails...loved the dim lights and unique atmosphere. This hotel also requires guests to show their room keys when entering the elevators which was really nice to see. We never once felt unsafe or anything. The breakfast vouchers were fantastic and let you choose from a $5 sit-down breakfast or a grab-and-go breakfast. We did both and each were great. You won't find a deal like this anywhere else. We can't say enough good things about this hotel. The service, cleanliness, and staff were some of the best we've ever encountered in the city. We won't be staying anywhere else now that we found this hidden gem!
