- What's Included
We stayed at the Edison for one night with our five year old twin granddaughters. The room was perfect since it was a suite with a king-sized bed and a pull-out couch in the other room. Each room had a flat screen television, too. The room was spotless and well maintained.The suite was larger than other hotels that we staying in before in NYC. The bathroom was also large with a large shower, double sink, and toilet. The staff from the doorman to the cleaning staff were friendly and accommodating. The location is awesome!. We were two blocks away from the theater where we saw Lion King and there was so many great restaurants in the vicinity. The girls loved the excitement of Times Square, too. The price was right and we will definitely stay there again.
Stayed two nights. We had a small room with a queen sized bed and it was just enough since we were only going to be in it to sleep. The best part was the location. We could see the Roy Rodgers Theater sign from our window (Hamilton was AMAZING). Times Square was about a 3 minute walk away. Well worth the $98 each night. It wasn't quiet, but that didn't bother us. It was actually fun hearing crowds cheers as actors stepped out their respective stage doors from Hamilton, Waitress, and The Present, all of which were either on our street or in our "back yard".TIP - Cheap eats just a few doors down: Carve has good, inexpensive food, as does Danny's Deli. My husband and I ate meals there for about $12 each time. Other restaurants: Barilla's near Bryant Part ($22 for 2 meals), Sean's Pub ($40 for 2 apps and 2 beers).Most of our budget had gone to the Hamilton tickets, so we spent a lot of time walking and found free things to do: New York Public Library, Chelsea Market, Artists and Fleas, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Central Park, runway costume museum on 3rd floor of Victoria's Secret, many stores, small bakeries.
I have just returned from a lovely break in New York. The Edison hotel was amazing. The location was perfect, right in Times Square and the hotel was really clean, stylish and the staff were always friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel
I stayed here for 5 nights mid December, the price was very good, even more so when I stepped outside, got my bearings and realised I was literally yards from Times Square. Couldn't get more central if you tried. Check in took a little while as there were so many people arriving that day, but with a busy central hotel in mid December, you'd be a fool to expect anything less. But the actual check in process was swift and easy. The room was very spacious and had good heating and air con, even if it sounded like a plane was trying to land when you put it on. It was well maintained and clean and the housekeeping staff were always friendly and asking if I needed anything in my room. I ventured to the in house bar a few evenings and enjoyed the live music (jazz) that they had. I believe they have music every night. There was a high mark up on wifi in the hotel however in the bar it was free and in reality there is a Starbucks on every block that offers free wifi if needed, so there were no additional charges to my bill on check out. They also have a great facility for storing luggage if you're travelling on a later flight and at 50cents, you can't grumble at all!As a single woman travelling alone to New York, I felt safe in the hotel, the staff at the front of the building and those monitoring the lifts, to ensure only hotel guests have access, were always friendly and asked if I was ok. I had a minor incident in front of the hotel with a pick up truck and the staff came to check on me to see that I was ok. My one time where I felt a little uneasy was just after check in; there were four people helping those who were checking in, they were all couples. I was the only one who they called concierge for to help me up to my room, even though with a suitcase on wheels I could have managed. Once shown to my room, the man stood waiting, watching me. Now I am fully aware of Americas tipping policy, but after a 9 hour flight, an already 14 hour day with the time difference, I was tired, I couldn't even remember where my anything was at that point. So I found it very intimidating for this man to be standing there in my room waiting for money. It took me a good couple of minutes rummaging through bags before I found my Dollars to be able to give him anything. In that sense I did feel like the situation was played to their advantage and they saw an opportunity. I think hotels should be more mindful when it comes to lone travellers in how they approach situations and not assume that as a lone woman I am incapable of pushing my four wheeled suitcase in and out of an elevator. It wouldn't put me off returning to the hotel, but I would be more inclined to stand my ground with certain things and not be made to feel vulnerable.
Good boutique hotel with international flare half block from Times Square (right at 47th street... dead center). Large bedroom but small bathroom. Has some flaws but overall a solid choice. Definitely would return.Key decision points: (1) location - perfect location even with construction scaffolding on 47th street. (2) noise - even 14 floors up (22 story building) you can't escape the street noise. (3) Staff - ok, somewhat aloof. (4) Building - be prepared to wait for an elevator, especially near checkout time. (5) Beds - really, really comfortable. Free Wifi - decent, but we kept getting the Marriott wifi instead (which was poor)
