“Great Location, Average Rooms with BED BUGS!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

Stayed here for five nights. First impression was good, nice lobby and easy check in. The room was average, two double beds and a bathroom (took us 2 days to find the light!). It was a manageable sized room, but could have been a lot bigger.
My biggest shock came on our 3rd morning, I had been coming up in rashes and bumps for 2 days - but then found a bed bug. The hotel staff moved us to another, much downgraded room, and we had to pay to store our luggage all day while we were waiting for another room. Not pleasent.

The location however - is AMAZING! Less than 30 seconds to Times Square and really close to Broadway. I guess the location made up for a lot of it!

Room Tip: Try and get a room higher up, as it is quieter. Preferably on the back of the hotel, the side street...

As with most reveiws of the Edison the hotel in seconds away from Time Square. The room we had was on the 7h floor and was SMALL we could not unpack as there was just no room. The staff where freindly and the security was good. Security based at the lift lobby and asked to see you key card before letting you pass. We didnt eat in the hotel so cant say what the food was like but again if you want to be in the heart of it and dont mind small rooms i would stay here. Next time in NYC I will

Room Tip: Get room at back of hotel street side can be nosiey

Myself & 5 girls stayed there for a 21st Birthday in June. Hotel has a location you could die for, right down the street from the visitor stairs in Times Square. We had a room with 2 double beds, very spacious & bright. We even had a "roof top" - that no one is supposed to know about so hush. Bathroom....as for 5 girls it was amazingly small!! im surprised it was a bathroom and not a closet - im not making excuses but i guess for times square location with all these rooms in one building they were trying save space, but i mean having nearly going into the bathroom sideways its not exactly cool.... thank god we are all skinny because i mean otherwise good luck .... Seriously. View amazing - on times square especially at night i mean wow. - but maybe thats only from where our room was? i cant speak for other rooms. you can store your luggage after check-out for some funny money, something like $6? thats really nothing.
hotel is pricey , but im guessing the location has a lot to do with it, but we paid - $360 for ONE night, but thats new york for you - thank god there were 6 of us.

Great location, spacious rooms just the bathroom is a bit shocking at first. overall had a good stay!

I order borsht, or matzo brie, or potato pancakes, or kasha varnishkas. I go straight to heaven. Yum! Plentiful and inexpensive. The servers are very friendly and welcoming.

the great thing about this hotel is the location, the worst thing about the hotel is the so called shuttle bus service, we were told it should take 35 mins to get to the airport from the hotel so we booked it for 5.00pm we were flying out at 9.00pm, what they didnt tell us was there are more pick ups on the way to the airport all over new york city, we jus made the airport with two mins to check in, .. the transportation area in the hotel should tell you this when you ar booking it , we were two hours on the bus,, the hotel is basic,

One of the cheaper hotels in Times Square. I visited on a study trip with my university. Had a few problems with getting new bath towels and had to change rooms twice.
