Just returned from a week in the hotel Edison. We found all the staff to be friendly and helpful. Our room on the 12th floor was a little tired but spotless. The sheets and towels were changed daily and the bed was extremely comfortable. There was a little noise during the night but that is to be expected in the... More

I've stayed at this hotel many times. The location, cleanliness, size of rooms, etc...is remarkable for a Time Square hotel! I will always stay at this hotel when in the city over night. However this visit was a little different then most... Not only did the little diner we love that was connected close down but we were very disappointed... More

Stayed here 5th-10th January 2015 and was very pleased with the hotel. We got a bit of an upgrade because it was my 40th birthday celebrations and it was great to have that extra bit of space in our room and the miniture bottles of red wine and bag of jellybeans were a nice touch - thank you :) All...

Just a block from Time Square. We stayed at the Hotel Edison during our first trip to New York. Initially we were attracted to it because of the great value. Additionally we really came to appreciate the location. Many of the attraction we wanted to see were within walking distance. We also like staying in older hotels like the Edison... More

I stayed here for the coldest two nights in New York in January. It was freezing. The room was larger than some other hotels I have stayed in in New York, especially for the price. The room was warm, clean and quiet. It was one and a half blocks to the show I was seeing, one block from a good... More

I booked the room through an online agent and paid reasonable money for three nights. The room is very tired and desperately needs a refurbishment. This with the poor view left me disappointed. Location really good yards from Times Square.

My experience on Hotel Edison was far more from what I expected. It has many great advantages, its so close to Times Square, you're surrounded by Broadway Theatres, the price range was very good, it's not noisy during the night and it's got two entrances one by 47th street and the other one by 46th. I really recommend it for... More

An old fashioned large hotel in proximity of Times Square. It is very similar to most American hotels as they are shown in many movies. A room was large and rather clean, bed comfortable. Not more noise as it is possible in this area. Price was highly reasonable for such location. Of drawbacks, no free wi-fi and no appropriate breakfast.... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood 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 paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit 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.
