My family and I stayed at this hotel for the weekend and were pleasantly surprised with the accommodations. I had stayed at the hotel a couple of years ago and it was quite dated. It is an ideal spot just steps from Time Square, Rockefeller Center, many of the Theaters, subway and tourist bus stops. The room was quite spacious...

We stayed here for 5 nights and it's location is brilliant just off Times Square. Our room wasn't what we were expecting for the money we paid. The bathroom needs updating the bath had cracks in it and the handbasin. I found the toilet very low. Our bed was comfortable enough. There was no restaurant as it's being refurbished. There...

Great Location in Times Square and theatre district, near all restaurants and shows, subway is at the end of the block. The staff is great personal service, newly renovated rooms and gym. The rooms are very comfortable they even greet you with a box of chocolate in your room.

The hotel is in a great location for most NYC attractions. The renovated rooms are well furnished and a good size. We originally had a small older room but upgraded easily at reception. The hotel is beautiful and has some great original features. There can be a short wait for the lifts as its a very large busy hotel. The...

Stayed here 1 night for business on MLK weekend. Had a signature queen. These are the renovated rooms, as opposed to the 'classic' ones. Nice size room for NYC, nicely renovated, good quality bed, amenities such as bath robe, umbrella, iron board, nice decor, no complaints there. Monday morning, when I'm ready to go to my meeting nearby and want...

Value is always important to us, but especially in Manhattan. We have been able to take advantage of the Edison e-mail member specials and are very happy with the results. Excellent location in Time Sq (across the street from TKTS for discount day-of Broadway shows), just off Broadway,near subways, walk to Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick's plus MoMA. The doorman...

Location is everything and this hotel offers it. However...that is all it offers. Rooms very small and not what pictured when browsing their website. Bathrooms had no ventilation and lots of peeling paint and toilets are exactly what are used in public restrooms. Toilet paper dispenser behind toilet. There is a metal shelf used near bathroom mirror also there is...

We stayed at the Edison for one night with our five year old twin granddaughters. The room was perfect since it was a suite with a king-sized bed and a pull-out couch in the other room. Each room had a flat screen television, too. The room was spotless and well maintained.The suite was larger than other hotels that we staying...

Stayed two nights. We had a small room with a queen sized bed and it was just enough since we were only going to be in it to sleep. The best part was the location. We could see the Roy Rodgers Theater sign from our window (Hamilton was AMAZING). Times Square was about a 3 minute walk away. Well worth...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
