- What's Included
Location perfect. Lobby like a more expensive hotel Room decent size. Value excellent ( your review process was too stringent. I was willing to spend a few minutes writing this, but not willing to write a long review. I came close to cancellung my review)
My husband and I booked a five day break through our local travel agent who suggested the Edison (wait until I see them) in NYC for my pending big birthday. We reviewed the Edison and decided to go ahead with the booking. Travellers on trip advisor,advised booking a high storey room for quietness. As we were travelling with our 7 year old daughter we requested a high room via the travel agent & we e-mailed the hotel also, just to make sure!! On arrival to what seemed a pleasant looking Art Deco lobby, told sorry your on the fourth floor !! We complained but told this was the room that was allocated. Off we went to our room and it was disgusting!!!! The dark brown carpet looked like it had been laid in the 1920's, it wasn't fitted correctly it was badly stained & frayed.The cream (I think) walls were quite badly stained and mould was showing through on the ceiling. The air conditioning unit was hanging off the wall. The television hung on the wall and was plugged in above the dirtiest skirting boards I've ever seen!!! Then the joys of the toilet !!!! OMG this was horrific !! The once again brown tiles looked like they had been gauged into with some kind lethal weapon, the shower was dirty and a limp tired looking shower curtain hid the delights of the shower!! Even the back of the bathroom door had deep scratches running down it!!! As if some poor bugger wanted out !!! Who could blame them!!!!!!!Back down we went to reception and complained, we were shown a room on the 12th floor which was just as nasty!! We could upgrade though!! For $40 per night !!! Yey!!! But they didn't have any until the following day so we had to stop in dark, disgusting room for the first night, we felt like crying!!! Following day we checked in to a room on the 20th floor !! Better decorated, still had brown carpets !! But they looked fitted!! However the room was again rather dirty, the glass counter that separated the two beds was thick with dust, you could run your finger over it and produce decent sized balls of fluff !! The fitted sheet on my bed was torn and remained like that for the next four days (the remainder of our stay).Also after our initial check in (night one) we decided to leave the grimness of our room to relax in the hotel bar!!! Not allowed !!! As our daughter wasn't allowed in, even though she was a resident !!! So we had to leave the hotel to find a bar that could accommodate. Actually the hotel bar was the only bar that wouldn't let my daughter in !!It was pointless complaining as I'll take all my evidence to my travel operator as soon as I get home later today!!Oh and something else to warn you weary travellers about this hotel, the lifts are horrendous!! Half don't work & the one's that do, stop at each floor, even if there is no one waiting!!! Not ideal when you are on the 20th floor!! One morning we chose to walk down to the lobby as the few lifts were constantly full or as I say stopped on every level, this was an eye opener walking down stairs that had not seen a mop & bucket in years, by using the handrail on the way down we noticed the colour of our hands!! Filthy !!!! This is an appalling hotel, look up the Novotel which is close by, but don't choose the eddison !! One point I have given, is for the location, which is ideal for everything, just a shame this hotel doesn't live up to its prime location
Great location!! The hotel was pretty good as well. Stayed here for New Year's. Walked right outside to watched the ball drop.There was a live jazz band playing in the bar/lounge a few nights. Can walk to many sites, shopping and food. We did drive they valet park or you can find a garage. Clean rooms and have the essentials. Didn't spend much time in the room, too busy out exploring. Will be staying again next time I am in NY.
The Hotel Edison could not be better placed. Just around corner from Times Square, everything seems within walking distance, subways close, Broadway Theatres a stone throws away. Staff friendly and extremely helpful. In the middle of renovations, so lifts were at times painfull. Bookings.com were not as detailed as they should be, we booked a room not realizing that we were not getting what was pictured. They pictured the updated signature suites, we were given an old room, but it was still very clean and comfortable if small.
Spent six days in New York as part of our holiday. Hotel was great location for all the tourist attractions. Staff seemed really friendly. The doorman Bobby was a great help and loved hearing all his stories. Great asset to the company and such a lovely bloke
