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.

Love that there is great security at the elevators. Perfect location. Great decor.
Very disappointed in the price. Hotel is showing it"s age. Paint was chipped in the room, bathroom was tiny, although slightly larger in Signature room we stayed in 2014. There is nothing you can do about the exchange rate, which was ridiculous, but all the extra fees and taxes, on top of an already high room rate, has made us want to check out other hotels next time, as much as we love the Edison.

The beds were comfy
the room was dingy, the hotel was dingy and it was hideously crowded in the lobby area all the time. I appreciate that it is in a "prime" location but this was way way way overpriced at over $400 per night. The aircon was way too loud

The hotel was old and not kept up. Bathroom ceiling was peeling, tile was missing in some areas, carpet was worn and stained, lots of street noise. Always crowded in lobby area like a bus had unloaded a lot of passengers. On a good note, it was well located. For the money, it should have been more updated.

Location was great, just off Times Square
Bed was very uncomfortable, saggy sides and lumpy centre. Coffee machine broke on second day and never replaced (breakfast vouchers offered to compensate) Disturbed sleep due to continuous noise of vehicles in street below loading/unloading very early every morning (3.30 am to 6.30 am)- in spite of requesting a quiet room. The seventh floor was not high enough to avoid the noise!

The location, staff was friendly but that's about it.
I was very disappointed with the quality of the room. The room was not only outdated but disgusting. The tub was in terrible condition, the floors were dirty, furniture was bad. Did not feel comfortable there.

the Location is convenient.
The staff was unpleasant (except for cleaning ladies who always smiled and said hello). The carpets are old and dirty and worn out. It is expensive and not worth the money.

The room was very clean, and the bed was very comfortable
We could hear a boiler or something like it noising all night so it was very difficult to sleep & i had a headache every morning from it.
