Asked for an upgrade for a special occasion wouldn't do it. Just checked in, said they can give us a bigger room! Room was smaller! Appauling Manager said we'll if your not happy we will refund you money and go change hotels! £300 security deposit never said that on booking! Only 2 breakfast vouchers for 4 people! Never been so disgusted in my whole life! Signature room so small!!!!

Hotel's Favourite
This was our 2nd stay at The Edison and we will be sure to have a 3rd. The signature room we stayed in was clean and comfortable and the staff are always polite and helpful. The hotel is literally just one minute walk to Times Square and the best bar in New York, The Rum House, is situated in the lobby. The Mai Tai’s there are fantastic! Can’t wait to go again.

We spent a wonderful weekend at Hotel Edison. With 3 teenage boys, we got a suite which had a surprisingly large bedroom (2 queens, plenty of room for a roll-away, it's own half-bath, tv, and closet), plus small living room with a queen pull-out sofa bed, tv, full bath, and coffee set-up. A door btw the two rooms gave us all a good measure of privacy. We had fantastic breakfasts at Bond 45, one of the three restaurants associated with the hotel and we easily walked to the theatre, the subway, and other restaurants. Located in Times Square, it is just the perfect venue.

Rooms dark lighting not great no mirrors at dressing table heater rattled had to change rooms to get drawers for clothes. Really good hairdryer and coffee machine in classic room. Security was good and location was great if you want to be near times square , few min from metro and port authority grab and go breakfast was a plus. Its an art deco style hotel with some lovely features though some areas a bit tired looking . The housekeeping was excellent clean sheets/towels every day . Beds were comfortable ,shower with bath water hot and good pressure. The back entrance was closed in evening which was a nuisance as you had to walk round the whole block to enter at front. On the whole it was a decent clean hotel in a good location all you need in NYC, I'd use this hotel again but preferred the New Yorker

Possibly the worst hotel I’ve ever stayed at. Avoid this at all costs. The hotel lobby itself is super charming but the rooms are small, dated, completely unclean and management is incredibly unhelpful. After our luggage was brought up to our room our bell hop turned all the lights on and noticed that our bathroom was covered in mud his response was “oh that’s weird” and he left without saying a word. My wife, who didn’t want to complain pulled out the cleaning wipes we brought with us and immediately cleaned our bathroom. Outside of this our room looked nothing like the photos, the wallpaper was stained and sagging where it looked like the desk once was, which now it was moved next to the bed and half blocking the bathroom door. Our hot water worked exactly once during our entire stay so I haven’t showed In the 3 days we’ve been here. But by far the cherry on top was that someone came into our room and moved a bunch of our personal belongings around. Every hotel we stay at we leave the do not disturb sign on the door because my wife is terrified of someone coming through our stuff. Today that nightmare became real. We came back from a show to find the DND sign missing from our door and our room was cleaned entirely. Which would be nice if it wasn’t apparent that someone went through our stuff. My wife’s socks, shoes and underwear were moved around, our bags of purchase that we made during our trip were rearranged, things folded up and moved. Luckily our suitcase has a lock on it however that was also moved. I went down to the front desk to report it to management because frankly it’s mortifying that this would even happen and the manager disappeared the first second she could get. I was instructed to talk to head of security who made me fill out an incident report as to what happened. They said they would pull the cameras (there’s no camera near our room) and called the head of housekeeping over. While speaking to him I was told that the house keeper saw that our sign was set to please service (it wasn’t, this side of the sign is on the opposite side of the door). I was also told that no one went through our stuff. Which is just a straight up lie. When I spoke to him I told him that our sign hasn’t moved on the door so either their house keeping hasn’t serviced a room in 2 days that had a please service sign on it or they ignored the do not disturb sign all together and they went through my stuff. Even more concerning is that the head of security at this point who had been sympathetic changed her tune entirely and acted like she was trying to mediate two children. I’ve never had more inconsiderate and horrible service. If you’re wondering what they did about all of this the answer is nothing. I was told that because we check out tomorrow there’s nothing they can do. I guess the goal of this hotel is do as little as possible, gaslight your customers and then potentially steal from them on their last day because “there’s nothing we can do when you check out tomorrow.” Absolutely abysmal.
