The Edison Hotel has been my faavorite choice for over 30 years, They have always liistened to my requests. Because I do not appreciate traffic noise while trying to sleep, the front desk persons recommend rooms that defer the noise. Also i am impressed with the security measure: requiring guests to produce room key before entering elevators which are readily available. The people who clean the rooms are very accomodating and friendly. Having two restaurants on site helps when the weather is bad or when a quick breakfast is needed. Finally, the location is perfect to see mant theaters that are very near and the TIX Booth is two minutes from the front door. I hope the reader of this review can understand why I call it Excellent Edison. Read less

This location allows you to enjoy all the fun near Times Square: Broadway, great restaurants and clubs, and never be far away from a hot, high pressure shower, extremely comfy beds and attentive staff. Oh yeah, all this comes with a very reasonable price too!

We stayed at the Hotel Edison for my daughters 16th birthday get away, we were given VIP treatment throughout our stay. The hotel is in the heart of Times Square and is in perfect location for anyone wanting to take in the sights of the city. The hotel and staff were very accommodating and helpful, we will definitely be returning!

Looking on website and saw lovely bedrooms we booked two rooms for our stay. Arrived today and ours is a disappointment especially the view of a building site down below and they are a little tired looking. Good location however but the pictures on website don't live up to your expectations.

This hotel is just ok, nothing special or remarkable about it. Maybe back in its heyday it was beautiful but now it's very dated. Some staff were extremely pleasant, some were functional. On booking with a travel agent we were told breakfast was included but on our arrival we were told it was only for 2 of us, not my child. Nothing was explained as to the reason and as we hadn't paid for it, felt unable to argue. The check-in wasnt exactly a warm friendly welcome, came across as more regimented and cold. The room we had on the 15th floor was dated and tired looking. The heater was extremely loud which meant we couldn't use it through the night and gave us a very chilly room in the morning! The room was clean and well appointed. Bedding and towels nice and fresh. The beds were comfy and we slept well after a day of walking. We were situated over 47th street and it was noisy, didn't bother myself or child but my husband struggled a little.The cleaners and security staff were always friendly. I didn't mind showing my room key to access the lifts from the lobby, just made me feel safe. Breakfast in Friedman's was ok for me but my husband and kid loved it. The Rum Bar was a little busy at night due to the theater across the road but the bar staff were pleasant and attentive. Over all the hotel was a place to lay our heads after busy days sightseeing and shopping and for that the location was excellent. Would I book this hotel again.........definitely not as theres nothing special about it and I certainly dont appreciate paying for "amenities and facilities" that do not in any way shape or form exist. As for the City That Never Sleeps.........you were amazing and we will be back. Read less
