After being recommended by our travel agent, this was the most disappointing Hotel we stayed at, Cramped rooms, heating you couldn't turn off, just old and dated. great location though. 50 Metres from Times Square. Not a Hotel I would recommend

We came back to the Edison Hotel this year based on a very good experience last year. I’m happy to say we had another great experience. The hotel feels like a hometown place not an impersonal chain hotel. The beds are super comfortable and the staff are all super nice, so many went out of their way to be helpful, everyone was really sweet to my young daughter. Excellent location too! Two minutes walk to the heart of Times Square but it feels tucked away once you’re at the hotel. Room was a good size for NYC. We stay in the classic room which isn’t renovated because we like the value. Over all it’s a home run staying here! Read less

Hotel Edison is a forever favorite of mine. I first stayed in '95 with my Theater class and was happy to come back as an adult to better appreciate it. We drove to NYC to see Betrayal on Broadway and Edison had a parking/room deal that made the whole thing effortless and appealing. Just pull up and go in.

Hotel Edison is a forever favorite of mine. I first stayed in '95 with my Theater class and was happy to come back as an adult to better appreciate it. We drove to NYC to see Betrayal on Broadway and Edison had a parking/room deal that made the whole thing effortless and appealing. Just pull up and go in. The Signature Queen room we stayed in was clean and stylish and overlooked the theater Hamilton was playing in; the views from there were amazing. You can't beat the location if you're there for the Theater District. Also, the amenities they provided were a nice touch. Need an umbrella? Lucky for you, it's in the closet! Need a robe and slippers? The closet. Need a luggage rack? It's in the closet. Dude, where's my safe? CLOSET! You could probably find Narnia in there but I didn't look because I was in the shower. I'm pretty sure they have the hottest water in NYC and it never seemed to run out, so if that's important to you, get in on it. The shower was gorgeously tiled and had plenty of room in it for myself and probably the entire cast of Cats, if I knew the entire cast of Cats (I don't, as it were). In conclusion, I would live here for the shower alone, and it's a home away from home when we come to the big city. I can't wait to stay again. (Sorry, I stole the room card-key -- I lost it in my gargantuan purse and the thought of dumping it out in the lobby seemed like a REALLY bad idea.) Read less

The hotel looks very nice from the outside but once we got to our room, we were a little disappointed. If you haven’t been to NYC before, remember to tip the bell boy! Room was bland and outdated, there were no tea/coffee facilities which after a long flight, you really want! Our first problem came on our first evening when we couldn’t get in to… Read more
The hotel looks very nice from the outside but once we got to our room, we were a little disappointed. If you haven’t been to NYC before, remember to tip the bell boy! Room was bland and outdated, there were no tea/coffee facilities which after a long flight, you really want! Our first problem came on our first evening when we couldn’t get in to either of the restaurants on the premises, we decided to order food to our room which is done by text. Neither of us could get a text to go through so we called down to reception for help, on the 3rd call we were told he would look into it and call us straight back but the call never came so on our first night, we went without food. Saturday morning (starving) we went down for our breakfast and were told we needed vouchers, went to reception to be told I had booked room only, thankfully I had the email to hand confirming bed AND breakfast so off we went. On the Sunday, we checked the statement on the card that they had taken for security to find that THREE payments had been taken by Hotel Edison totalling approx £300!!! When we got back we confronted the lady on reception who said we had been charged for our room due to the complication of the breakfast booking and that they were only pending payments which she would cancel, I believe she has done that as they haven’t gone out yet!? I think a lot of hotels charge a ‘facility fee’ but please check on TripAdvisor reviews of the hotel before booking!! I clearly didn’t! Read less
