Our first visit to the USA an older couple so after arriving at New York following 8 days in Indianapolis a tranquil place in comparison it was a culture shock. The hotel was so busy, but I have to say they did us proud. All the staff were friendly and obliging, the whole thing was run to precision. The hotel was kept so clean. The cafe was run to precision as wellsooner your order went in you were served. Just one point the hotel is tired and in need of upgrading but hey we really enjoyed being there, thank you.

Stayed at this hotel with a friend to see a concert in NYC on Monday night July 21, 2014. Located next to the W Times Square, the location is ideal for those who want to be towards the west side, theatre district, and Times Square transportation options.

Check-in took quite a bit of time - seems everyone arrived at 3 pm. Hotel desk clerk was neither friendly nor welcoming nor helpful - I was disappointed. Room had 2 queen beds, and old, simple, traditional-style bathroom. It was fine for a night (since we basically just slept there), but would not recommend for someone to spend a week, or even a few days there. The hotel price point was attractive, and the reason why I booked it. If you set your expectations properly, it's a perfectly fine place to crash for a solo traveler or a couple for a night or two. Any more than that, and I'd recommend searching elsewhere.

Second time staying at the Edison Hotel and we will stay there anytime we are in New York. Location is perfect. Rooms are clean and staff is friendly. Loved the wine and cheese night with the live musicians. A lovely surprise. Yes the rooms are small but it's New York, you only need the room to sleep in anyways.

As others have said, the rooms that are not remodeled are old and dated. The rooms were smaller than we experienced at the Hampton Inn on 8th Ave previously, but fine by New York standards. The air conditioning worked well, but was VERY noisy. We wore ear plugs at night. However, I would say that since the hotel is so old, the walls are thicker so there is not as much noise from surrounding rooms. We arrived after check in time of 3:00 so we could get right in our room, but ended up waiting over an hour for the room to be ready. The cleaning staff are very efficient and room was very clean. The toilet almost overflowed every time we flushed, but we made it through the week without any mishap. The location is great and having a back entrance on 46th St is a time saver. Definitely try Danny's Gourmet Deli just outside the front door. Had breakfast and coffee from there every morning, and dinner one night.

Lovely staff, great location in the heart of times square, a stone's throw from broadway and a few blocks from central park. We received a welcome pack as it was the first part of our honeymoon, which was a nice touch. Yes rooms are quite small, but who spends time in there other than sleeping in New York?! Definitely enjoyed and would stay again. Travellers be aware: if checking in on a Saturday evening with jet lag, don't be alarmed when at 1am 'New York' by Alicia Keys starts blaring out ofTimes Square speakers!

I stayed a week in this hotel with two friends last September (2013). I was looking for a comfortable and clean hotel in the heart of New York. And that's what I got when I stayed in this hotel. Just 20 metres from the tribune of Times Square, this hotel offers you comfortable rooms, a friendly and helpful staff and all the facilities you need when you want to have a nice and quiet place to spend your nights while, during the day, you explore the wonders of ths magical city.
