The location is great! Right at times square.... I stayed there in June 2013 for 10 days. The Staff are very helpful and you feel safe. All in all that was my second stay and i still liked it just like the first time i stayed there 2 years ago.

If you want a basic hotel steps from Time Square, the Edison may be your place! It is an older hotel and has issues you'd expect from an older hotel. We found the facilities to be clean. The bathroom was the most dated aspect - temperature of the shower fluctuated. Decent gift shop in the facility. This was my fourth...

The Edison Hotel in Time Square is a great place to stay when visiting New York. Friendly staff, clean quarters, and close to everything. Time Square is only 1/2 block away. The hotel is older, but there was virtually no wait for the elevators, and it seemed to have a lot of tourists staying there. Smallish rooms, but average for...

I stayed at this hotel way back in 1986, I read some of the reviews that indicated that some of the rooms were outdated. I was afraid that I would end up with a throw back room from the 80's. Not the case, Ryan checked me into the hotel and insured me that I would not have an outdated room....

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
