The location of this hotel is amazing! The staff were very friendly, but were also stern and serious when it came to keeping the hotel safe. It was very much appreciated, considering that anyone off the street could walk into the hotel to admire the beautiful Art Deco lobby. I believe that we stayed in a classic room, but the decor doesn't quite match the pictures on the hotel's website. By no means was our room in bad condition, though. The bed was so comfortable, I fell asleep in no time!
We did have a few issues with the room, though. 1) I would like to suggest that the Edison install powerbars/powerstrips so that some plugs could be freed up for recharging mobile phones or laptops. I went out and bought one so that my 3 roommates could also plug in their phones without having to unplug the TV, Clock-radio or lamps. 2) The TV in room 1119 mysteriously turned on in the middle of the night. The remote control was sitting on the nightstand, untouched. After shutting the TV off, it activated itself again around 6am. It was rather strange. 3) The water in the shower would go from cold to hot even if you didn't touch the taps. I'm not sure if this is a hotel-wide issue, or just our bathroom. It wasn't a massive water temperature shift, so I didn't freeze or burn myself, but it was enough to make it a slight inconvenience when showering.
All in all, this was a very memorable and enjoyable trip. I would definitely recommend staying at the Edison Hotel.
