This place is all about the location. Glamorously positioned at the doorstep of time square. The hotel is cozy and comes with a bathtub. For the location, the hotel charges a fair price and is comparatively cheaper to the other establishments nearby.

We stayed at the Edison during our trip to New York. We were happy with the location as it is a 1 minute walk away from times square and a subway station. The rooms a basic but I think the hotel is in the middle of being re-vamped so we were in an older room but we weren’t bothered. The rooms were clean and the cleaners came in every day. When leaving they took our bags before we left for the airport so we could explore the city before leaving. They then called a taxi for us when leaving.

Excellent location and that's the only positive thing I can say about the hotel. Hotel room was dark, drab and scruffy so was the bathroom. Worst hotel I've ever stayed in. The staff was so un helpful and the manager on shift well he's in the wrong job, no people skills, very rude and unhelpful. There's plenty of hotels in New York, I'm due to go back to New York absolutely love the city, but I definitely won't be going back there, that's a cert.

What a great family vacation and The Edison was in part a big part of making our stay amazing. Location, location, location I just can’t say how conveniently located this property is to everything. It was less than a half block from time square and walking distance to almost everything. Also easy to find transportation and never a shortage of great restaurants around including some good street food vendors for those late nights. Oh, also the gay bars were close just in case you were wondering. All in all a great hotel to stay if you’re looking to explore New York City. Now, staff was amazing and the beds were very comfortable. Amenities within the property were great as they have a bar and tow restaurants with great food. We were on higher floor so could not hear any noise. We were there through New Year’s And they had a special section for guest which made out New Years experience in NYC that much more special without having to stand outside all day. This by far is my new favorite place to stay when going to New York. I can’t wait to go again.

The people at the Edison treat us like VIPs every time we visit. Most the times were in March since as a teacher that’s my vacation time. My two friends and I enjoy the wonderful 2-room suite with plenty of room. Not only are we comfortable, but we feel safe. The security ( Danny, Jahaida, and others) and staff are so helpful in telling us what to watch for and where we should go while visiting. The Wine and Cheese evenings with local musicians in the lobby is a very special touch. If our flight is delayed and we check in at 3:00 am we still feel so very welcome. The Edison has been our NYC destination since 2014. Before that we stayed at different hotels, but none of them made the wonderful impression that the Edison did and it was the very special people who work there (Scott, Rommel, Roger, De’Marcus, and many others) that made us feel like family. The location is superb, so close to the many Broadway shows.

Room Tip: All the rooms we had were great. My favorite is a corner room. Noise never seemed to be a problem.
