Excellent location for exploring NYC. Staff very polite and helpful. Room was very small and dated however, location more than made up for this. Would recommend this hotel.

Edison Hotel was right in the heart of Manhattan, just by Times Square. Don't be put off by the bright lights and loud noises, it's not too bad when you get in your room! Many of the great sights NYC has to offer are on your doorstep, or at least within walking distance. The only attractions we really needed to...

We stayed here as a family of 4, mum, dad and 2 20+ year old daughters. This was a special family holiday as our youngest daughter was 21. We stayed in a two bedroomed suite. The hotel itself was ok, the room could have done with a bit of updating but after a day out and about in New York...

Although this is an older Hotel it is full of character and the staff are so freindly and helpfull. It can be a bit noisy but thats only because you are in the center of everything that is New York. Times Square is right on your door step. Loved it all

This hotel is situated so close Time Square's lights reflect almost outside - a very good location to be in. The hotel is clean and tidy with very friendly and polite staff both on reception and in the restaurant. The room we stayed in was a standard twin for just under $600. A basic room with not much of a...

The location of this hotel could not be any better. It took 3 attempts before we were able to check in to our room because the maid service was still there. We were offered a different room, but after finding out that our room was a renovated room we decided to wait until it was ready. We're patient people and...

They say that location is everything, and that's definitely the case with the Edison Hotel just off Times Square in New York City. Literally steps away from the Red Steps and the Broadway TKTS booth, the hotel's site on West 47th Street is about as convenient as you can get to the center of the Times Square action. So it...

Though I have not had the pleasure of staying with the Edison, I hope to share in the experience some day. Fortunately, I did have the opportunity to call upon the Edison for a generous favor, to which (without hesitation) management instantaneously stepped up to the plate. I hope one day that many more establishments can boast as big a...

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.
