Hotel Edison Times Square
15 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"The family room we were given was on the 15th floor. It was grubby, scruffy and dirty and the bathroom was disgusting. We were initially offered a $50 upgrade but couldn't get into that room for another day so we had 1 night in our awful room. On complaining again the next morning we were offered a free upgrade but at this point decided to check out and asked for a refund. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and I guess are used to dealing with complaints. The hotel is very busy. There is security in the lobby and you'll probably need to queue to use one of the many elevators. This hotel is suitable if you stay in a refurbished room or if you're a student and just want to be where the action is and not too fussed about the room. Location 10/10 if you like the bustle. Staff 10/10. Room 2/10."

I stayed at the Hotel Edison for 7 days ...
"I stayed at the Hotel Edison for 7 days with my two teenage daughters and my husband. I found the room, on the sixth floor, to be very comfortable. Beds included. Yes the bathroom was small but so are all the bathrooms in New York - I've stayed at the Grand Hyatt and found the Edison to have way more room then the Hyatt. The pillows weren't great, but I still slept well, and that's what your doing in your hotel, sleeping. The location was by far the best - so close to everything and the staff very helpful. I would definitely stay here again."

"The foyer of the hotel is an art deco masterpiece, amazing, unfortunately this is where my delight of the hotel ended. Our room was on the 20th floor so quiet, however the room was shabby. The bed was small and uncomfortable and sloped away from the headboard. The bathroom was small, tatty with a huge crack in the wash basin that had been smeared with silicone filler. The shower was adequate, just! It was warm and we did have adequate air conditioning thankfully. We used the diner situated off the main foyer which was cheap and adequate. The best thing about the hotel is its proximity to Time Square and the Deli next door!!!"

Room very small and cramped for 4 people...
"Room very small and cramped for 4 people, and frequently kept giving each other electric shocks whilst in the hotel for some strange reason. This did not happen outside the hotel. Bathroom very small and crack in bath. Also the shower worked very slowly and was almost impossible to wash hair in. Windows were not sound proof at all and seemed as if they were open in the night because there was so much noise. Opposite hotel was several garages were large trucks were kept in the day and then wee taken out at between 11 and 12pm every night. This created a huge amount of noise and due to the already noisy streets of New York and the fact that it was near time square made it hugely noisy. The windows let a draft in and therefore the rooms were cold and the radiator/heater made a ticking sound when on. TV was not tuned correctly and as a result was discolored and annoying. Holiday was amazing, shame the hotel was a piece of ****."

"2nd time in New York - first time at Hotel Edison, definitely wonât be the last. From leaving my house to reaching the hotel everything went right. I had researched a lot of hotels in New York and, due to my interest in Art Deco, happened upon the Hotel Edison - what a delight. The foyer was superb with original plasterwork and decoration, obviously looked after very well and on top of that the staff were more than helpful, rooms cleaned daily and, having requested a high floor due to the hotelâs close proximity to Times Square, extremely quite. Not much to say about New York except itâs a place everyone should visit, at least once! So much to see and do that, having already been twice, I still feel the need to return. We were there for 7 days and managed to take in a show (The Lion King at the New Amsterdam Theatre), a concert (David Byrne at Carnegie Hall), as well as the usual sight seeing (Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Central Park, The Village, Flat Iron Building - I could go on . . . and on. . ). Look out for the Tick Tock diner - excellent service and food (ask for Joseph) and a lovely little bar on Sullivan Street (Just off Bleeker Street in The Village) called Shade Bar. Thank you Kuoni and thanks to everyone in New York for making our visit so memorable."

Splendid Front Desk Service, Splendid Location
"This hotel is located about 45 seconds from Broadway, a short walk from the center of Times Square and an even shorter walk to the 49th Street subway station. Rockerfeller Center, Carnegie Hall, Central Park, Tiffany's and St. Patrick's Cathedral were all within easy walking distance even on a bitterly cold weekend.Our room was originally on a floor occupied by a teenage tour group. It would have been a long night if the Front Desk (a gentleman named Stephen in particular) had not taken the time to make arrangements that resulted in an upgraded room far from the teenagers at no extra charge.The older you get, the more you appreciate thoughtful service !"

Group booking Beware
"Our group booked 9 months in advance. The trip was carefully planned with constant communication with the hotel. We had known that the hotel would be modest, clean, great location and budget in mind. We had been given information by other travelers who had stayed at this hotel previously. These same travelers were in our group and related that their previous experiences at the hotel were different.Out of the 21 rooms booked--only 2 rooms were provided with choice of smoking preference and bedding choice. The hotel was overbooked and would not change rooms for the unhappy guest. We arrived at noon--issued keys for rooms that were not ready or cleaned.(Front desk did not inform the guests) Confusion from the beginning. We prepaid for a full american breakfast. $10.00 in advance--group rate. On Cafe Edison Menu listed for less than $6.00. Bring in groups at your own risk. Plan on disappointed guests. We run about 4 trips a year to NYC and will never bring a group again to the Edison. The hotel didn't even try to earn back our business in any way.For such a small saving---Find another hotel!A Credit Union, Syracuse New York"

Great deal - & you can't beat the location!
"I just spent the weekend at the Edison and was impressed. The location was perfect and as a woman traveling alone, I felt very safe and comfortable. The room was small but immaculate and quiet. Note: bring your own hairdryer: you can get one from Housekeeping, but they bring it to you and want it back in one hour!"

"We stayed at the Edison Hotel from Nov. 29, 2003 to Dec. 4th 2003, and found it to be an excellent choice. It was very festive, with charming Art Deco decoration. The room was very comfortable and warm with everything we needed. It is also very central with such a buzz, restaurants nearby and loads of things to see. We would certainly stay there again should we be lucky enough to come to New York again."

"I stayed at the Edison from Dec. 29 - Jan. 3 2004. The Edison was a terrific value! Our room was very clean and spacious (room 1819). It is an older hotel, but it has been well maintained. I never had to wait long for an elevator, the staff was wonderful, and the Cafe Edison on site offered good food and a good price. I will choose this hotel again when in NYC!"

Excellent value for money!
"I have just returned from a 5 day Christmas trip to New York and stayed at The Edison. I thought it was a great hotel in a fantastic location. Okay so it's not a luxurious hotel! But take into account the location, the cost, the friendly staff and the cleanliness and I think it's well worth it. We had an average sized room which was really warm and spotless clean. Everyday we were given fresh towels and the room was cleaned. There's a cosy little bar, a gift shop, transportation desk and a great little coffee shop. When I return to New York I will definitely stay here again. Someone below wrote that there was no iron/ironing board. I've never read such trash. What a pathetic reason to slag off a hotel. I say to this person, all you have to do is ask nicely. It's not such a big issue!!"
