Hotel Edison Times Square

Reviewed June 20, 2014

The hotel is just steps away to Times Square, subway and other places that we had to see. The price is relatively expensive if you based it on the hotel amenities but it is accessible to almost anywhere that we had to go so for us, it is worth it. I did not expect much from the hotel as I had already checked the review prior to our stay. The rooms are decent and spacious and the staff are friendly. What I really like about this hotel aside from the location, is their added service where we can leave our things (before check in and after check out) with the bellman. Downside is you have to pay for wifi which Given the location, this hotel is probably one with the cheapest rate.

I plan to book this hotel again for our next trip.

Slightly old fashioned but this was all part of its charm.No problems booking in.Excellent location less than 200 steps and bang in the middle of Times Square. Going back next year so that says it all.

Room Tip: 12th floor or above

The location of the hotel was great - right in the centre of Times Square with short walking distances to everything we needed. Unfortunately, that is the only thing I have good to say about our stay. Our room was extremely dated and in need of a refurb, fast! The shower in the bathroom dripped constantly all night and was so loud - to the point where we had to wrap a towel around the head to try and stop it until we had fallen asleep! It also varied between freezing and scolding whilst using it. However, the worst bit was the radiator! We stayed during the snow storms in February so the radiators were on constantly. The one in our room was so noisy - it screeched all night and hissed! It was the most terrible few nights sleep I have ever had and I can sleep through the fire alarm usually. On the second night we had had enough and called down to reception in the early hours of the morning to ask if they could do something. The sent up a maintenance guy who looked at it and said that it always did that, excuse me?! Then we said to just turn it off, we would rather be cold - he said that it couldn't be done. Very disappointed as our trip cost a lot of money. On check out we joined the queue at reception, were told by the reception that it would be quicker to join the other queue so did, only to be told when we got to the front, that it was for check in only - so then had to join the back of the other queue again!!!!

Stayed at the Edison Hotel in 2001. Back then, it was ready for a renovation & the room was very small. Well, not anymore! The hotel has updated the rooms, beautifully made over the bathrooms & furnishings. So fast forward to 2014...when we arrived, our room wasn't ready (the place was PACKED!) so we waited in the lobby for maybe 30-45 min but it was worth the wait. Thanks to Jorge Valencia for upgrading us from a regular room to a suite!!! We were so elated and happy-that never happened to us before! Just made the whole trip better.

OK, here's what's great about the Edison...LOCATION. You are literally in the heart of Times Square. A few blocks from most theatre's, Rockefeller Center & Radio City. Restaurants of all kinds, around every corner. As far as the hotel, nice shower (major for me!), new, wall mounted flat screen TV's, comfy beds & pillows. Like all city hotels, it could be noisy but not enough to keep you from restful sleep. Also, loved the maid that took care of us on the 19th floor-super sweet! Anyway, if I ever get back to NYC, I will be staying here.

We stayed here for 1 week and the location is fantastic. We loved the Tuesday and Friday wine/cheese night as we got to meet some other fantastic guests. Our room wad 533. Small on the corner block behind the Scientology museum that took us away from the loud crowds of Times Square. The husband would recommend the gym facilities. The staff at reception were the most polite we have met and the maides did a fantastic job of clearing the rooms and making it comfortable again. We have stayed before and will definitely stay again.

This hotel is not at the top end of the market and the rooms & decor are a little tired. However, the location is excellent for a first time visit & negotiating your way around New York. This hotel is situated right in the bustling area of Times Square with easy access to Broadway & tour bus stop. For the more energetic it is possible to walk to all the top tourist sites!
The hotel is clean & the rooms are adequate, breakfasts can be a little hectic but the early bird gets the worm!!! Be warned if your on a time schedule get there first!
I would stay here again purely due to the location, the hotel staff are efficient & friendly what more can I say?

I enjoyed my stay at the Edison Hotel Times Square very much. Some of the rooms are older but you find a lot of that in NYC anyway. The location was great and the staff were warm and friendly. I was there during a cold spell in March and the heater broke. They sent someone up to my room right away to fix it. I went back there in May for one night and was just as happy with my experience. I definitely recommend this hotel.
