Probably the largest hotel we've stayed in but having a small room. However very clean, great bed, decent bathroom. Room safe and good tv for chilling out time after a hard day's exploring NY. Friendly, helpful staff and great location. Having been left high and dry by our super shuttle service after check out , standing outside with the clock ticking and the great possibility of missing our flight what do we do? The hotel valet's buddy offered to take us to JFK airport in his awesome Chevrolet suv and as he promised after great driving through horrendous NY traffic conditions as well as a guided tour of Queens along the way we managed to check in with only minutes to spare. A very big thank you my friend may all your dreams come true! Never got your name cos of the stressful time, Sorry. Gracias again !!

Hotel's Favorite
We were only in town for a couple of days, for a wedding. Beautiful hotel, nice room, terrific service (thanks to Juan at the front desk for the great restaurant suggestion [Five Napkins, fantastic hamburgers]. We didn't have tons of time to walk around, so we wound up eating breakfast @ Friedman's, in the hotel, also very nice. The reception was at Bond 45, also in the hotel, also beautiful, incredible, great service, in other words, the optimal New York experience for a stereotypical mid-westerner (Ohioan, actually).

We took a shuttle to and from the airport and they drop you right at the front door. The hotel is just off Times Square so it's easy to walk to many attractions, food, shopping. There are many theaters in this area so there are plenty of people walking around at night. I liked that our hotel was not on Times Square for the noise and sirens. There is a restaurant in the hotel and entrances on both sides of the hotel which can save you walking around the block.

So our trip took place in 2017 and at the time we were promised an upgraded room and a free night stay when we next returned so we felt it was fair they tried to resolve, however after 3 emails, phone calls and various other types of contact with no response trying to get them to book this for us I want to share our shambolic stay at Hotel Edison as it’s clear this offer wasn’t genuine and must have been to try and prevent us from sharing our experience. We stayed here from Monday 7th - 13th Aug. My husband had booked this as a surprise trip for my birthday and had booked the Edison as this is where we had stayed for our honeymoon 2 years prior and we love the hotel. Unfortunately our second trip has left us rather disappointed and we are very unlikely to stay here again. When we checked in we were given a "Queen Room" on the 22nd floor which had a bed so small it would not comfortably sleep my 6ft 5 husband and I. Our room at home has a UK double and it is larger that this "Queen" also the plug gave electric shocks, the toilet would not flush properly and there was nowhere to storage suitcases - not ideal for a 6 night holiday! The next morning we were moved rooms and the receptionist was very apologetic saying it was one of the smallest rooms in the hotel!! We then were moved to a room on the 20th floor which was great and just like the queen we had stayed in previously. However, we were bothered throughout the night by people using the ice machine - while I have no issue with this I do think it is unacceptable at 4am as it is so noisy. We were also woken daily at 8am by renovations happening despite there being no notice advising of this work. At one point part of the ceiling fell down seconds after we passed and were waiting at the lift!! The final straw was when we were woken at midnight by a strange creaking sound. My husband sat up in bed and the headboard fell on top of his head!!!! This had been attached with 4 screws and had not correctly been fitted to the wall with plugs. There was also several holes in the wall which suggests the 4 screws had been drilled back in a number of times. I called reception 15 times and it was engaged every time I tried so I ended up having to go down in my pyjamas!! Security were very helpful and attended to my husband and checked we were ok. They wanted us to switch rooms, however I hope you can understand that at midnight the thought of packing our bags for a second time was very unappealing!!! We were also concerned we would end up back in a small room. Then housekeeping came to remove the headboard. We were just settling back to sleep when maintenance came to look at it despite us not having the headboard in our room anymore. Then at 8am 3 members of staff came to look at the problem and again were unaware of the headboard being removed! During that day the headboard was fixed back to the wall, however we were rather disappointed that no one came to check we were happy about things or apologise for the inconvenience. I had hoped to discuss this issue at checkout but we weren't asked how our stay was. I have to say I'm very surprised at the events during our stay as it is not the same standard we expected following our honeymoon stay. My advice is do not stay here!
