We stayed in Edison hotel for 9 nights. The location is excellent because it's just a few meters from Times Square, Starbucks and the metro station, but I believe that is also the reason why the rooms are not so quiet (and also because of the old heating system). The room was comfortable,clean, bathroom small but ok, although they forgot to clean the room one day, but after calling the reception the service was immediately provided. The only thing we didn't like was about the shuttle to the airport, because we were told it would take an hour, but at the end it was two hours (and not because of the traffic but because of an additional stop of which we were informed at the time and not before). But we still made it in time. In general excellent relationship between price and quality. I would surely choose again this hotel for next trip to NY.

I booked this as a last minute deal, the morning of when our other accomodation fell through. It was a half block from Times Square where we wanted to be. We were only there two nights but the stay was very pleasant and the staff very professional and helpful. The price of around $230 a night (including taxes and fees) compared very favorably with other hotels in the area. The amenities were good, even the toilet paper was soft! Security was good, though friendly, providing service such as storing our luggage even after checkout, so that we could still roam the city before our evening flight. The only drawback for some would be the room with two queens was small and the bathroom seemed to come out of the 1970s. I think packed in with character provides a feel of New York, though.

Our stay at the Edison was an excellent one in all aspect even though the room was quite a small one and it lacked facilities like a coffee/tea facility and a fridge. The location of this hotel is an excellent central one in the heart of Times Square NY. It is also a very save area to be.

Ok, this is a big hotel, right on Times Square, so very busy and while the staff do their best it is busy. Check in is 3pm which is late and many people were turned away until after 3pm so be aware of this, my room was available and so I was able to check in just after 2pm. The location is very close to Times Square which makes it both convenient but also a bit noisy. Rooms are small and a bit worn but cheap - so you get what you pay for. If you want a room very close to Times Square, if you don't really care about the room except to sleep then the Edison is a good choice just remember the late check in. I felt safe and the staff were fine so no complaints, rooms are noisy but not enough to stop me sleeping. So value for money - tick! Location - tick! Safety - tick! Basic room - tick!

Things were great at The Edison! Staff was welcoming and very friendly. The room was a renovated one with a very modern feel. 1/2 block from Times Square with very close access to subways. Great price, great service, great experience!

This is a large hotel with few facilities which is fine for tourists who spend most of their time away from the hotel. Being so close to theatres, restaurants and public transport, there are many options available. The room was fine, although the bed was on the firm side. While we had a suite, it did not come with adequate kitchen facilities, with only a fridge and coffee maker. We had free internet but had to sign in again every day of our stay which seemed odd. Do not use the transport desk as they rip you off. They charged $56 for two passengers in the airport shuttle, while you can book on line for $37.

This was my first visit to NY and was not overly confident about the Edison after reading some of the reviews however was pleasantly surprised. I requested a refurbished room on an upper floor and while I would class it as redecorated rather than refurbished we got what was requested. Beds were clean and towels changed every day. There was a large walk in cupboard which was great for storing suitcases and all our purchases. Not a great deal of room for moving about the room but that was because we had two queen sized beds - again as requested. Space may have been an issue if there were 4 sharing the room but as there was only 2 of us it was fine and to be honest who goes to NY to sit in their hotel room? Location could not be better, just a few yards away from Times Square. Would I go back to the Edison? Definately.

An older classic style hotel with expensive rates that are average for new york. Location is great , just off times square . Close to the subway and tours. We walked to Rockerfeller center and pier 78. Rooms were clean but small but again it is new york.Starbucks across the street and a take out/eat in deli beside for quick meals. I would recommend this hotel

I was assured of a refrigerator in my room to keep medication cold on arrival and 3 hours later I was still waiting and told it was coming by some staff and on further enquiring was told there was none available. Medication then had to be kept cold downstairs at the desk. Wasted my afternoon! Next morning same story but I was not prepared to stay in as medication at least was kept cold. Finally was told refrigeration was not not given on my class of room, only deluxe rooms have one. I also have seen some single room that were rather claustrophobic. Fortunately I had a double room which was spacious would also have been good enough for 2 people what I had booked it for but unfortunately had to come by myself. But having said all that it was very central to Transport, Theatres and Broadway.

The provision of free wifi within the hotel should be a consideration. Towel size should be increased to accommodate larger guests. Apart from the above mentioned, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return - and promote. Will recommend, without hesitation, to any australians travelling to New York

The location is great but the heather in the room is so loud you can't sleep. I suggest to wait few more years when the renovation is over.
