This is the second time I have stayed at the Edison in as many years. The location is fantastic, the rooms are as you would expect - certainly enough for the time you spend in there during a visit to the "big apple" and the staff are fantastic, especially Victor on Security - ever the professional when helping us out!...

You couldn't be closer to Times Square if you tried - 50 yards and you're right in the square. Stayed in signature room 1138 (after upgrading from a tiny classic). big room with 2 huge and very comfortable beds. Three windows but no views - not a great problem as didn't come to NYC to stay in room looking out...

TWO STARs !!! There were signs all over - UNDER RENOVATION. Rooms, the restaurant, the elevators to mention a few are being repaired. You can smell and feel the dusts flying and crashing on you. The carpet were dusty because of the construction. The hotel needs a real, real make-over. Two Stars because the location was few meters from Time...

Excellent location yards away from the famous red steps. Reception really helpful gave us an upgrade due to the wife's birthday. Try get a room on the floor (think floor 6 or 7) where the rooms have been refurbished.

Check-in was effortless, very welcoming too, great personalities behind the desk Our initial room (1434) was tiny however, and in a bad location view-wise (the hotel is about a 30 second walk from Times Square, but I wouldn't expect any views of the area due to the hotel's location amongst other buildings). Thus we upgraded to a new room on...

Very clean and comfortable, staff were very helpful with any questions we asked of where to go and we would go back there if we ever went back to New York, it's only a 2 minute walk to Times Square and broadway!

The hotel staff are rude. The service sucks, and they do not like to work, everything you have to do on your own. Except the receptionist Tex. The room is tidy, the location is great but lacking in attention to detail. You make a request they do not deliver, do not exchange bath accessories

The location of this hotel has to be its best selling point. Literally go outside and within 30 seconds you are in Times Square! The room was good enough for what we paid though we didn't really spend much time in there. Front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful, letting us check in early as we arrived a couple...

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.
