We Were the "Invisibles"

We were four of us and two generations Thus becoming invisible seems not to do with age. We stayed four nights at the Edison before moving on to a great stay in Miami S. BeachArriving in the lobby we headed for the check-in counter but were brutally ushered to a roped line. It was late and no other people around!Our luggage arrived 1,5 days late. We were not notified when it arrived and when my wife inquired she was wordlessly ushered into a room and hinted to indicate which pieces were ours. The bell man refused to help her mount the luggage to our rooms! Obviously we had gotten virtual signs of "paria" around our necks and had become invisible.To be fair I have to add that Edison has a great location next to Time Square, I slept well in the comfortable bed and the Rum Hall has a great ambiance and service.As a diplomatic person I tried to blame the bad service on hard-boiled NewYork style but minimizing guests could hardly be cultural but possibly a leadership issue. To avoid the elevator lines(!) we often took the stairs and passed the door marked HR department. We wondered what was cooking behind that door!

Failed to deliver, try elsewhere 1st.

This is an old hotel that's under going renovations so there's some expectations of inconvenience. My room was small and tight with a small table for a tea & coffee maker.The bed is firm and good. There is a wall mounted air con which is very large in the room, is very noisy and inefficient and will not cool the room. My room reached 80 degrees Fahrenheit at night with two people in it even with the air-con running flat out. The hotel offered us another room with similar issues but it was a bit quieter.None of the rooms in the hotel allow the windows to be opened as they are screwed shut and there is no air reticulation to bring in fresh air. So expect the rooms to be stale for your entire stay.The back of the hotel has several large and noisy air-con towers which run all night and make sleeping difficult.The wi-fi sucks, constantly drops out and is painfully slow.The bathrooms are reasonable in size and clean but lack towel rails in general. Times Square is near by as is public transport, so the location is very good. There are some great staff that are eager to help and are friendly. There is a gym, but no pool.

Excellent location in Times Square for Broadway shows.

We stayed teo nights and saw Miss Saigon. Only 5 short blocks from the hotel. Can not beat the location. Plenty of cafes and restaurants right on Times Square. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We asked for a coffee maker as it was not provided in the room and they brought up Keurig with coffee and creamer within a minute. What a service. Rooms are small but expected in NYC. Needs renovations. We were in room no. 1600. We were right accross from the elevator but did not hear any noise. Nice bar attached to the hotel.

Great Location

Love this hotel for the location, reasonable price and recently upgraded rooms. Have stayed numerous times and will stay again. Walked Baby Girl distance to Times Square as well as many other attractions, including Broadway shows.

Great Hotel, Fabulous Location

The hotel was clean with large TVs. Some might find the rooms a little small but after spending 15 days on a cruise, the room appeared big! The location is fantastic about half a block from Times Square. We walked 4.5 blacks to the Intrepid Air, Sea and Space museum. We walked to the Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Central Park, etc. Fabulous location for our first visit to New York City.
