Loved this hotel for its very friendly employees and the location. Was not so keen on the decor of the room. The tv was a flat screen but the remote did not work. Channel selection wasn't that great either (but you're not really staying for the tv, right?) The heat was on over blast and there was no way of...

Location - right in time square and only paid £25 each per person for a room. Size - very small bathroom Decor - some may say very 40's but I say it's dated. Nice doormen, always a plus! I would stay there again for the location. Taxis are easily available. Lots of nice cafes around.

My daughter and I stayed at the Edison and found it OK. Travelled from Australia, not knowing what to expect. Yes, room was small and tired looking (but it was only for sleeping in!!).The location is excellent for being "in" New York. Staff were friendly.

The rating I given is based on my stay at the "classic" room of this hotel, seems that the renovated rooms are better as mentioned by the comments here.

The Edison is a longtime favorite due to excellent proximity to the theaters and Restaurant Row. The marvelous Art Deco lobby murals are a timeless welcome back to our New York "home base."

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.
