“Just right”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

Older hotel and you could tell but the AC was super cold and it was in the heart of Times Square. For the price compared to others, it was just right. Staff was helpful. Parking was $45 but again, middle of Times Square. We checked out at noon and paid $0.50 a bag for storage until we picked them up at 9 pm. Highly recommend

we got here and our room had an air conditioner that was broken and leaking water all over the carpet and smelt bad. To thier credit they immediatly moved us to another room that was bigger and working. The furniture, paint and amenities need to be upgraded but for the price and location, i would recommmend it.

Room Tip: get a higher floor for less noise but you will stop at every floor in the elevator on your way down...

We were absolutley blown away by this hotel...
this is right smack in the middle of manhattan literally a few steps off times square, with easy access to everything from sites, food etc. to subway for accessing other areas of new york.

the real amazing thing is the hotel was practically a steal for the price we paid (under 200$ a night) for the refurbished rooms "Signature Room".

the hotel itself is really beautiful, old style mid 1900's hotel with very nice lobby and reception area.

check in was very friendly, even though we arrived well before check in time and Joseph the bellboy was a real delight from the doorway all the wau to setting us up in our room.
as stated in other reviewes there are a couple of entrances and the place feels very safe with a hotel person at the elevator entrance checking you are a guest (show room key) 24/7.

the room was just mind blowing!
high level (19) with great view of surrounding high rises and zero noise.
great space in the room - much more than what i expected in new york - with bathroom, sitting area and large Queen size bed (they also have King rooms). this room type also includes free wifi which is always a nice perk when traveling.

didn't get a chance to eat the hotel cafe but you have on the hotel street at least three places for breakfast so you're in no problem there...

this is a real no brainer - if you can get this hotel at this price don't even consider the alternatives - go here! (and say hi to Joseph...)

Room Tip: Signature Rooms are awsome!

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Edison and overall we were really pleased with our experience there!

Any staff we encountered were always polite and courteous. Check in and out took a matter of minutes.

We booked a signature queen room on floor 21, which is one of those that have been renovated. The room was really clean but small. Saying that it did the job for us as we were always on the go. The bathroom was also small but had a brilliant walk in shower which made up for it. In this type of room we had daily room clean and fresh towels. Also free wifi! ( which I gather other floors have to pay for). We paid a dollar to leave each bag at the hotel on our last day so that we didn't have to carry them around.

The location of the hotel is amazing! Right at Times Square and surrounded by theatres. We found its location a brilliant base for exploring all NYC had to offer.

Overall we had a great experience at The Edison. I did get a good deal for the signature queen room though on Expedia- and would have found the price much too high to pay without this deal. Therefore I would most definitely return but only with another deal as it can be too expensive!

*We took the subway and air train combo to JFK from 42nd and 8th Avenue and it was SO straightforward and easy to manoeuvre. Cost us $8 each and we got to the airport with half hr to spare! More to spend on duty free!!

*We bought a city tours NYC ticket for $99 dollars on our first day and used it to the max. It allowed us to hop on and off around the city (designated bus stops throughout) and included tickets to Top of the Rock observatory and Statue of Liberty Ferry. The bus drivers we encountered were really happy to help so ask them if you are unsure!

* We did a 2 hour non stop night tour of the city with our tickets. Absolutely amazing to see the place at night. Included a fantastic view of the impressive skyline and Brooklyn Bridge. Really recommend this to first timers like us.

*Juniors Restaurant just around the corner are renowned for their amazing cheesecake but I also found their meals to be gorgeous! We ate there twice-brilliant service!

*If you can manage it and get a good deal, stay in the signature rooms. They are very small but so clean and very comfortable!

Once again I went to my favourite place New York . My granddaughter and I stayed at the Edison Hotel Times Square , where we have stayed previously . Since our last stay the hotel has seen refurbishment. It has been well done. Our room was lovely. There was a machine for making tea/coffee. The bathroom was newly done and the shower perfect. Plenty of clean fresh towels and bed linen daily. Housekeeping excellent, all staff were friendly and professional.
The hotel is in a perfect location. Within walking distance of Radio City, Bryant Park, Grand Central Station and even Central Park. Plenty of reasonably priced places to eat locally. Danny's next door has some fab take outs every day open 24/7 .
I highly recommend this hotel, hoping to book it for next year.

This older hotel is the absolute best for a visit to New York City. It's a half block from Times Square and an easy walk or subway ride to every thing you may want to see and do in The Big Apple. The room was very comfortable and clean and the service was very good. I've stayed here twice and will always stay here when I visit NYC. It's quiet and reasonably priced. Not glitzy but just a good clean solid place to stay. (I actually stayed here early in 2013 but this review screen would only allow clicking back no earlier than Sept 2013.) Loved this hotel.

The hotel is not new, but it has charm. The bathrooms in the old section of the hotel is not so nice, and difficult to get the right temperature. But overall, the rooms are okay and the location is great.
The service is also really good.
