I visited the Sheraton Edison from December 22 to 25 with a Chinese tour group. A religious group had practically booked all the other rooms in the hotel, so it was very busy every time I went back to the hotel since the seminars would end and a group of people would try to use the elevators and practically all the floors were selected. The elevator seemed slow, there are 3 elevators and one of them goes all the way down to the pool.
In the lobby, there is a set of computers which allow you to log into the internet. There is also a computer next to the reception that looks up routes. I didn't pay for internet but if you would like internet service, you have to pay about $10 for 24hr service on a machine that you let reception to input the code. So it's not like this wifi is transferable between the different machines.
Our room was cleaned everyday. Our room had a nice LCD tv, and Starbucks coffee and bottles of water. My tour guide had said the bottle of water was for free but one says free and the other says $2, so that was a big confusing. The walls are pretty thin. We could hear our next door neighbor's morning call (which happened to be 3am), and kids running through the hall. But it was mainly quiet after 11pm, so sleep was fine. Our tub was fine and we got new towels.
We stayed here mainly because we were going to Manhattan, and the staff at reception were SUPER helpful. We got a shuttle van to take us to the closest train station which is Metuchen train station. It's about $11 to get to Penn Station in Manhattan (about 40-50 minutes). On the way back, you have to cross the street to get a taxi. The hotel had also offered to have a shuttle pick up. It costs about $12.50 from Metuchen station back to the hotel. There's another station called Metro Park, but this is further from the hotel. It costs about $18.50 to get to the hotel (unless I got ripped off).
