“Near Times Square”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

We had last year a superior room which we found satisfactory. Near by is Times Square, the music-house Birdland, restaurant Row, and the hotel has a breakfast restaurant with reasonable menue. We have stayed there many times, and have found it price-worth with everything just close by

Stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights in May 2012. The hotel itself has an "art deco" styled lobby area with cafe off the main entrance. The reception staff, porters etc were all courteous and helpful as were the staff in the cafe where we had breakfast. There is also a deli next door with seating upstairs.
Our room was on the 14th floor, but not having been refurbished was very tired indeed although clean enough; also the air conditioning unit did not work which would be more of a problem in the summer months (work is presently ongoing refurbishing rooms).There was very little noise from the traffic when the window was closed but on the second night there was a fair bit of noise from a pneumatic drill on the construction site opposite in the early hours (to be fair this was probably exceptional).
The hotel itself has a great location and is no more than 100 yards from Times Square and within walking distance to Central Park and many other attractions.
Having stayed in a few Manhattan Hotels, this one stands out for its location and is probably competitively priced when compared nightly rates at some Manhattan hotels - after all with so much to do very little time is spent actually in the hotel.

Room Tip: Good elevator service so try and get a room as high as possible, ( preferably one of the refurbished...

Hotel is very old an needs upgrades.
We change 3 times the room. Fisrt in the 3rd floor: too much noise from the street
Second: 11 floor: too much noise near elevators -10 elevators-, Third: 12 Floor was good.
I was in this hotel in the 80's, nothing change.
The location is excellent if you want to stay in Times Square.
The deli in the lobby only accept cash.
No safe box in the room.
No bar service in the room.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floors, far from elevators

We appreciate your feedback. Many of our rooms are in the process of being renovated. We are always more than happy to accommodate our guests with another room as per availability. And, yes, being in the heart of Times Square, you may experience some noise from time to time, however, the court and back of the Hotel will prove more to your liking for your next visit as they are much quieter rooms. We have also just introduced our brand new ‘Signature’ Rooms which are ‘Fully Renovated’ and simply gorgeous! They also come equipped with in-room safes for your convenience. Please feel free to view the photos online. In addition, please do not hesitate to request a refrigerator at no charge during your next stay....This can be filled with the beverages of your choice for your enjoyment! Also, to make life a little easier for you, we do have an ATM located right in our Lobby next to the Concierge. We look forward to your return!

Just returned from New York and stayed at The Edison Hotel. This hotel is located in a prime location, only a few yards from Time Square and Broadway, within walking distance of most attractions. The hotel is lovely, the staff are very pleasant, nothing was too much trouble for them, we had a nice specious twin queens bedroom on the 11th floor which was just perfect for our needs, the beds were very comfortable, there is a bit of noise from outside but that is expectable considering the close proximity to Times Square, that is no fault of the Hotel . I loved the Art décor. I would highly recommend this hotel to all my friends and family and will if I ever return to NY defiantly be booking The Edison. We loved it and found everything perfect for our needs. Thank you to all the staff at the Edison.......

The Edison is in a great location right by Times Square. A little bit tired and basic. Also quite noisy due to passing traffic and drone of the air conditioning units on the office block opposite - not loud but a persistent hum. Take ear plugs.

Room Tip: Higher up gets more light and less noise.
