Very clean and comfortable, staff were very helpful with any questions we asked of where to go and we would go back there if we ever went back to New York, it's only a 2 minute walk to Times Square and broadway!

The location of this hotel has to be its best selling point. Literally go outside and within 30 seconds you are in Times Square! The room was good enough for what we paid though we didn't really spend much time in there. Front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful, letting us check in early as we arrived a couple...

This is the most perfect location for a tourist staying in NYC as it was close to most things. Although being right in Manhattan means it can be noisy. Thanks to the door man Franklin for helping me the day I left with my shuttle to the airport.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in a "classic" room, and they really use the term classic loosely! The wallpaper was falling off all the walls, the bathroom door wouldn't even open all the way, the tub paint was peeling off in huge chunks, and when things are that old and in such disrepair you just can't...

We stayed on one of the updated rooms on the 17th floor. The room and bed we very comfortable and it was surprisingly quiet for being so close to Times Square. Everything was just a short walk away and the employees were extremely welcoming and helpful to any request we had.

Stayed here in Feb 18 and I loved it. We had a room on a high floor, I think it was the 19th I forget but I was shocked at how nice the room was.

The Edison is very conveniently situated for theatres, restaurants and galleries. Close to the subway if you don't want to walk, but really, most attractions are walkable. There is a deli and restaurants nearby although it's a shame that there is no hotel coffee shop any more and no coffee making facilities in the room. Some areas of the hotel...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
