Room not ready so was given free upgrade to "king bed suite". Bed was Queen at best. "Suite" was smaller than a college dorm. Bathroom was 4 different patterns. Overall very disappointing in the room.

The air con was old and noisy, the decor very tired and carpet a bit dirty. Didn't spoil our stay...it was room only so...

We were part of a bus trip for the weekend during December so Times Square is packed! However, the Edison got us into our rooms timely, service was great and friendly, rooms were clean and looked fresh (maybe renovated in the last few years as this is an older hotel). The location could not be more perfect if you want...

We had 2 rooms, both with 2 queen size beds. One room came complete with a DRESSER (don't they all come this way?). The other room DID NOT have a dresser. They switched rooms the next day 2 times (first one had a small dresser and the heater was stuck at 80 and wouldn't go off). The 3rd room had...

We stayed in the Hotel Edison as part of a bus tour on 11/26/2016. The whole tour was reasonable so the hotel must have been a good group rate, too. It is half block from Times Square and the back doors open to the theater where Hamilton plays. So centrally located! We arrived at 1:00 PM Saturday on a holiday...

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.
