Opinions on Edison hotel.

We are looking for a hotel near times square for 5 nights starting 14th Sept.Normally we would stay in the Time Hotel,but the rates are high,$349 a night.

We can get the Edison for $995 with travelocity,by paying in full up front which is not a problem as our dates are set in stone.

What are the locals and those who have stayed there opnions on this hotel.

The reviews are mixed,some good some bad.

Or if you have any other options for around $250 a night taxes inc.in the area we would appreciate them.

Thanks in advance.

I know the reviews are mixed. My family has used this hotel for quite a few years. We have had "girls get away" and also celebrated a few birthdays in NYC at the Edison. June 2nd I will be there again with a class reunion group of 12 ladies.

We have been fortuneate to find the rooms clean and adequate- - - -

that is all we ask. I f we were staying on Central Park at twice the nightly rate we might expect a decorator touch. The bathrooms are "standard"- - - -not necessarily the brand, but a bit small in size, with average shower, sink etc there. You have to remember that this is an older hotel, so the hallways aren't spaceous. And, there is no roomservice if I recall. There are good delis nearby, Starbucks accross the street. You won't starve. The best thing about the Edison, in addition to lower rates, is how very near it is to Times Square. When we ladies go out to the theatre, we can easily walk. And there are some good restaurants nearby. The TKTS kiosk is nearby, for low theatre tickets, and subway entrances are not that distant either.

I am hoping our good luck will hold on our upcoming trip there.

You can spend double the amount and still have some "glitches".

Thanks jmet, in New York we literally sleep and shower in our room.

Lack of room service,restaurant,bars etc.are irrelevant to us.

All we ask is a clean safe room,in a good area.

We are extremely low maintenance when it comes to hotels in new york.

It gets bad reviews, and many claim it is not clean. I'd look elsewhere.

And some reviews mentioned mice in the rooms. My suggestion--read the reviews posted here under "hotels". It will help you come to an informed decision.

I've used the Edison twice before and will be back again in June this year and have no complaints! The rooms are clean and comfortable and the sheets and towels are changed daily. Sure, the rooms are small, but then we only use them for sleeping so size doesn't matter!
