Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

Superb location but tired rooms. Quite reasonable rate but the taxes added on are pretty bizarre. Can be a little noisy but I didn't mind that, big beds and quite a nice lobby. I really can't stress what a great location this is as we got to walk up to Central Park and got the subway down to battery park

We stayed at Hotel Edison for 4 nights in the middle of February. The hotel is in a fantastic location and for our first time in the city we couldn't have wanted any more. The hotel is being renovated and I for one completely panicked when I read reviews on this site. For me they couldn't be further from what...

I thought being in the middle of the city would be noisy, but it was actually quiet because of the windows I guess we're sound proof. The room was nice and clean and I had a good view. Marisela, who checked me in was great. She was nice and courteous and helped me get a room on the top floor....

we were promised we would get early check in but when we arrived we were told they had nothing available for a few hours. The receptionist was very rude and not understanding of our situation. We called the manager who was inconsiderate and did not help resolve the situation. They then assured us that they would call us when our...

A dream trip celebrating our 25th anniversary. The Edison Hotel was everything we hoped for. Literally just round the corner from Times Square. Beautiful lounge area and typical New York bar. Excellent staff.

This hotel is absolutely amazing. The location is excellent. The staff are so accommodating. The trip was a birthday gift and the Edison staff went above and beyond to make our trip extra special. Wouldn't go to any other hotel in New York. Hope to go back soon.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
