“Great and Has the Best of Everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

Besides location, this hotel is a must for any art deco/TCM movie lover. It really is like going back in time, right down to the music in the lobby. The diner is a rare find. If you look closely you can find many things from era gone by. The elevator buttons for example, and bathtub knobs. The staff here was very helpful, friendly, and caring. Not a bad apple in the bunch. I was here for a week and it couldn't have been better. I enjoyed the gym on the top floor, and I enjoyed the band downstairs at Cache. A lot to offer just in hotel space. Also if you are military, they offer a military discount. Fabulous stay. And not a chain. Loved it.

Room Tip: I was on the 47th Street side, with no direct sunlight. As a migraine person, this was very helpful...

The "girls" in our family spent a long weekend in NY over the Christmas holidays. We chose to stay at the Edison. All in all, it was a nice hotel. It is clean and the location is wonderful; within walking distance of Times Square and so many attractions. We were not lucky enough to get a newly renovated room, so our accommodations were not the best, but the staff made up for our older room. They were very helpful and nice.

I took my daughter to the Big Apple for her 18th Birthday just before Xmas. The Edison appeared to have good reviews with recently being renovated. I personally would not stay here again, as when we booked, I specifically requested a high rise room which we didnot get. I also found the staff less than friendly and helpful. The room was small, no natural daylight and the room very dated and not renovated at all on the 4th Floor! Be careful when booking rooms at this hotel!

Thank you for your review – we are sorry that you did not like the room you were assigned. It has more to do with flexibility for us to be able to offer particular rooms when the need arises which we will be happy to offer you the next time, based on availability. During times of high occupancy, as was the case during your stay, we must make use of all the rooms at our disposal. We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back to a room that meets with your approval.

just come back from New york where i celebrated my 50th. we stayed at the edison hotel just off times square and i mean just off it must have been all off a 30 second walk from hotel to times square. the hotel is a refurbished art deco hotel with fantastic art work in the main lobby. we had a room on the 17th floor at the front of the hotel yes it was noisy at times but it was all city noise and they do say that this city never sleeps. the room was on the small side but who needs a big room when all you are doing is sleeping there. the cafe on the ground floor was fantastic for breakfast the resturant also on the ground floor produced a fantastic dinner and also some really good cocktails. the bar called the rum room serve a great beer and some really good music open from 11am to 4am but no noise from here. the staff at the hotel, resturants and the bar were very helpful and friendly what more could you want from a city hotel we would return at any time to this hotel.

Room Tip: cant give any tips on choice of rooms our room was fine no complaints

We stayed 5 nights at the Edison Hotel,( 4 of us over 60#s gals) an older hotel but updated and renovated over the years. I stayed there once in the 1970's, and boy has it ever improved. We got a two bedroom suite, so roomy and even a little walk in closet. Clean, great views, and close to everything. A little pricey, but thats New York. Would stay there in a flash. Off the lobby was a family type restaurant, good food and decent prices. Loved it.

Location is everything, and this hotel is so well positioned in Times Square. The staff is courteous. The cafe is a wonderful way to start your day, and to have dinner, too. From visit to visit I recognize the hotel staff, and that is very welcoming. I stayed 5 nights, and enjoyed my time in NYC very much because of the Edison Hotel Times Quare.

The housekeeping staff is very good, and after a day of sightseeing, you come back to a freshly made room. The elevators run very well, and there are no long lines.

Nice older hotel at a great location- went out the back door and right across the street to see "Nice Work if you can get it" show, great location right off Times Square and on edge of Theatre District. Restaurant was good, and reasonably priced for breakfast, but service to take out coffee is slow. It would be nice to have coffee available in the lobby. Room was comfortable and clean, and in a quiet location.
