Traditional charm and 24-hour perks come together in a location steps from the Times Square action at the non-smoking Hotel Edison. Inside the 22-story Hotel Edison, a landmark since 1931, gorgeous murals adorn the bustling lobby. The hotel's 810 rooms feature flat-panel TVs, premium bedding and Wi-Fi (for a fee). Signature rooms, introduced in 2014, offer free Wi-Fi, coffeemakers, iPod docks and express check-in/out on floors 19 - 22. The jazzy cocktail bar features rum cocktails and hand-carved wood furnishings. The hotel also offers around-the-clock perks such as fitness and business facilities, plus valet parking (for a fee). A half-block from Times Square, the Hotel Edison is an immediate neighbor of some of Broadway's most famous theaters and is around the corner from the TKTS booth, which sells half-price tickets for same-day shows. The most convenient subway lines are within two to four blocks. The hotel is a 15-minute stroll south of Central Park. A shuttle from Grand Central Terminal, less than a mile away, gets you to LaGuardia International Airport, 10 miles east.

The only problem was a gap underneath the door so when anyone walked past you could hear everything apart from that I was happy with everything

The hotel public areas were good. Out room however was in urgent need of refurbishment. There were only 2 small bedside drawers and a photo would show us having to use our cases open on the floor which is not good for a 5 day stay.
The room was appalling and the reception staff when we arrived were very rude

The help of the guest relations ambassador DeMarcus Woods. If it wasn’t for him I would have checked out and took a loss for my money!! That hotel has to do better very expectable. They have lost a future customer.
The room was not as the internet shows it would be. I was very uncomfortable and unsatisfied!! I will never stay there again or recommend it to anybody else. It was an old beat up room, the bathroom light didn’t work, the dressers and the bed was old. Never what I could have imagined. And then they tried to over charge me, good thing I went to talk to the manager. Poor ratings from me!!

You cannot beat the location of the Edison if you want to be in the heart of Times Square!!
The Valet Parking...ugh.. we drove in our Tundra, which apparently is considered " oversized" , so the valet would not take it nor would any parking garage ANYWHERE!! but they did take all the Escalades and Expeditions, needless to say, hubbie had to go to Seacaucas at 11pm and take the train bueno :( Hotel should give a clearer heads up on Valet policies on the website :( very inconvenient!

This location is the best we have ever had in Times Square! So close to everything. Hotel is clean and comfortable.
The water doesn't get really hot and the a/c doesn't get very cold, but I may just like extreme temps! :)

Location was fine, right near Times Square. Staff helpful & friendly
The cost is rather high for what the hotel is, but it’s the Times Square area that you pay for

Rooms and communal areas were spotlessly clean. Very comfortable beds. Food in both restaurants was fabulous. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. We had a small issue with our original room on the last night and spoke to angel on the desk and we were moved immediately so special thanks to him. Also the concierge I think his name was Alex but not too sure was so so helpful. Anything we needed help with he was so accommodating. Having the security by the lifts is great and all the security personal we encountered were so lovely. If I ever come back to New York I will definitely stay here again. Location is perfect and prices especially as it's New York were the best we came across.
Nothing not to like.

The location was perfect. Breakfast was very good. Lemon ricotta pancakes, fabulous!
Well, when we checked in, no one said anything about a reception in the lobby later that day. It wasn't until the next day I found a little bag in the room welcoming us and saying there was a reception in the lobby waiting for us at 4:00 with food. It would have been better if they told us that when we checked in. Also, the "menu" button on the remote didn't work

Very comfy beds and next door to Times Square, perfect location.
There was ongoing construction on the floor above which woke us up on several occasions. no prior warning from reception which was poor.

Great location, and 2 great bars on site!
When checking in they said my card didn’t work and I couldn’t use it so I had to pay cash which wasn’t ideal as you can’t take out that much at one time. When I rung my card company to sort it out they said that there was no evidence of them trying to charge my card at all. That there was nothing wrong with it. Have used it pretty much every day while Iv been in the city since. It was a MasterCard and they advertise that they accept them. They were also doing construction work on some of the rooms and we just happened to be given a room on the same floor as all the work so was woken up most mornings by drilling, shouting and them cling filming the floor right outside our room.
