We had a single room on our first stay, we returned a year later... More

The location couldn't be better! In the heart of Times Square, the Edison Hotel it's close to main spots for tourists in the Big Apple. If you love walking you can get anywhere. The hotel facilities are great, everything functions well, the staff is kind. On Tuesday and Friday they offer wine and cheese with great music. The only bad... More

Great location and affordable. When there a few times and never disappointed. 1 min from time Square, restaurants, stores. The size of the standard room are really random. Some are huge and other are really small.

The experience I had with the Hotel Edison wasn't as great as I expected. The location was perfect and the staff was friendly but the room was a disappointment. It wasn't very clean, the bed wasn't comfortable and the bathroom had a peculiar smell that made it impossibly to go in there. It wasn't as historic as I thought it... More

You can't beat the location of this hotel. We were within walking distance of all the theaters, amazing restaurants and a subway stop. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. The beds, however, were like rocks. And the room this time was very noisy. We could hear every person in the hall and outside (even though we were on the... 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.
