This hotel is reasonably priced and in a fantastic location, just off Times Square! The room was clean, spacious and had good A/C but the ensuite was very small. The staff were very friendly and security was very good in terms of access to the lifts etc. Free wifi is not available anywhere in the hotel but can be purchased... More

My friend & I got upgraded to one of the superior rooms which had recently been remodeled. We were on the 19th floor with a beautiful view of the city. The room was nice & large. The only complaint was the tiny hanging space in the little closet. They had built in shelves in it which was nice but only... More

We had the good fortune of an upgrade, whilst gorgeous it did not influence this review. As others have said, the location is perfect with the action just outside the door yet quiet inside. Handy for the open top bus tours, Broadway and shops. The cafe serves a fast, efficient well priced breakfast. The staff are helpful, informative and cheerful,... More

When I lost my iPhone the day we arrived, the security staff was very helpful. With their help I got my iPhone back. A special thanks to Victor Colon from the security! Besides that, the location of the hotel is great. It’s so close to everything. We had a wonderful stay in New York and the Edison Hotel. We’ll certainly... More

My family and I stayed here at the begining of August for a "trip of a lifetime". This soon ended 2 minutes after arrival. The reception staff were quite rude and unfriendly, we had to wait more than 3 hours before we could get in our rooms. Lobby not big for the size of the hotel, couldn't get a seat... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in August, on our first trip to NYC. There is no better location for your money. The hotel was clean, quiet and located steps from Times Square. All subway lines were very close. The opposite way of the Times Square there were many restaurants, a small grocery store, and a Duane Reeds. We would... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in June.As we had never been before to New York,i looked at reviews others had posted and decided to stay here and that was because of the location. It is right in the centre of times square and you literally have everything around you. As you are in the middle of Manhattan it did... More

First trip to NYC but this won't be our last. This hotel has charmed. It is clean, good service and the food in the restaurant is fantastic. 2 steps from Time square and the brodway shows. Even if we are in the heart of the action, the hotel is quiet and we slept like babys. The price was excellent. We... More

Great hotel located at the heart of the Big Apple. An 80+ year hotel that looks amazing for its age. Old style look but beautiful. Our room in 17th floor, looked refurbish, very small yet cozy, good A/C, good HD TV & cable, bathroom very small but just right, queen bed very comfy, and a fare view of the city.... More

We have stayed at the Edison several times and the recent visit was the best one yet. Excellent location, within walking distance of theatres and right on Restaurant Row. Very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended.
