“A very enjoyable break”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

This was our 2nd visit staying at the Edison and once again we had a great visit. Our room was on the 15th floor and was very pleasant with two very comfortable queen size beds. Very clean and fresh.. Bathroom was small but had everything we needed and the staff could not have been more helpful. From the doorman to Victor and Ronaldo on reception and also the housekeeping lady could not have done more to make our stay comfortable. We happened to mention in passing to the housekeeping lady that our room was very warm and she arranged for someone to sort out the air con for us straight away, so when we arrived back the room was cooler. Top class service. Considering what this city and it's people have been through in the last few weeks, with Sandy only 2 weeks before and winter storm Athena 1 day before we arrived, the New York people know how to just "get the job done" and get this wonderful, exciting city back to normal. A big thank you to all the staff at the Edison Hotel

Room Tip: Rooms facing the rear of the hotel are quieter than the once facing onto 47th street

Stayed here for a week in March and were allocated a lovely big room. There were two restaurants on the ground floor, one where we breakfasted every morning - look out for the massive big bowls of porridge - would feed a family of four. The other restaurant was open in the evenings and was a cosy place to dine for a couple of nights. There are so many really good restaurants in the area - just around the corner from Times Square! The back door is right across the road from the Marriott hotel where you can have a 3-course buffet dinner in their Revolving Restaurant. This is an absolute MUST. It takes an hour to complete the revolution. If you go early evening you can see the whole city during daylight, sunset and nightfall with all the lights - just spectacular. We must have spent 3 hours at the window watching the changing skyline. We had difficulty dragging ourselves away. The most memorable meal we've ever had!

Last weekend we stayed in the newly renovated and just-opened 19th floor of Hotel Edison. It was wonderful - spacious suite with everything new. Nice sized bathroom with large shower. Living room had comfortable couch, large flat-screen and fridg. Comfortable king bed - individually controlled air and heat in each room. Staff was very accomodating - excellent value for the price!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask to be on a renovated floor - a little more expensive, but well worth the extra money.

2 Senior Women on a weekend bus trip from Canada. It was perfect, we could walk walk to Times Square. The Staff was very helpful telling us how to get around when we were on our own.
After bus tour. Hotel is old but very clean and beds were comfortable. We would like to go back
on our own and would stay there again as it is so convienent to everything.

Room Tip: Our rooms were picked for us, facing St. behind with no problems. Only in there to sleep and change...

I found this old, Art Deco era hotel to be a diamond in the rough. Located just steps from Times
Square, it presents a nostalgic alternative to the fancy new and sterile chain hotels, The staff were so friendly and welcoming, the room was clean and comfortable, the bed was comfy, and everything I needed was right there. I will stay here again. In fact, I liked it so much that I probably wouldn't bother looking for any other place to stay in NYC! It's maybe not for everyone,
as the bathrooms are small and the rooms are dated. But for me, it only added to the ambiance.
It would be nice to have a coffee maker in the room, though.

upon my 3rd visit to nyc i stayed at the edison and im so so glad that i did. What a great hotel, perfectly situated off time square so your only a stones throw away from the hustle ans bussle of the nyc lifestyle. The room was great,comfy, and very clean. The staff were really nice and very polite and really helpful when we needed to hail a taxi down to go out for dinner. All in all a cracking hotel, and i will be staying there again next month. cant wait!

Room Tip: suites are huges, plenty of room for all the extra shopping bags, and relaxing

On first impression, the hotel looked lovely just like advertised in the brochure. Everything went downhill after that. The room was very shabby. Room number 1818. The staff were rude and unhelpful. I booked this on the understanding that the rooms would be as advertised in the brochure. what I thought would be a perfect holiday for my husbands 60th turned out to be a holiday ruined. I certainly would not recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to New York. A Great Dissapointment!!

Please accept our apologies for the accommodations. Unfortunately the 18th floor has yet to be renovated. We are sorry you didn't bring your concerns to the attention of one of our front desk or guest relations staff, so that we may have had the opportunity to ameliorate the circumstances by changing your room while you were still here.
