Beautiful indoors Location is good in Times Square

We loved the history of the hotel. It is located in a great place for sight seeing on foot and close to the subway. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Adele was informative when it came to the attractions and accommodations for tourists. It was a little strange that there wasn’t a refrigerator, microwave or coffee maker in the room. The front desk did offer to place a fridge in the room since our stay was a few days, we opted out didn’t see a point since there wasn’t a microwave. Overall, we had a pleasant experience and would stay at Hotel Edison on our next vacation to NYC.

The hotel was close to everything and the staff was friendly and always helpful!!

Liked the location, rooms had no fridge, microwave nor a laundry facility and the rooms are old.

We were never informed upon check in about any amenities. It wasn't till the last day of our stay that we found out that they could put a coffee maker in our room. Consequently, because the hotel coffee was too expensive, we left early each morning to buy coffee somewhere and bring it back to the room. The doormen were very unfriendly and not once greeted us with a good "anything".

Good location. Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were comfortable.

Friendly staff. Convenient location near Times Square.

The Rum House has an excellent ambience coupled with its excellent selection of drinks.

Location location location! The hotel was nice (bathrooms seemed updated, beautiful!), rooms were very clean and staff was very friendly and felt secure with security check point at elevator. Just a slight warning though...make sure you are not placed near the maid's storage room! We were right next door (because we requested an early checkin-MISTAKE!) and they were in and out slamming doors early in the morning. I would highly recommend for the price and location!

Great location but rooms are very small and bathrooms are the size of a closet. Our room did not even have room for a dresser to store clothes for a several night stay. Hotel also adds about $30 a night to your booking on Orbitz as facility fees so do not be surprised. Onsight restaurant is very noisy with average food and service.

It was very disappointing, the room my daughter and I stayed in was run down and the temperature in my room was almost 90 degrees couldn’t get it to a comfortable temp. The keys cards never worked and when I asked for help in the front desk they were not friendly and always gave me attitude.

Perfect location for someone in the Theater district. We were a le to check in before our matinee, and able to go back and relax before our evening show. The 11am check out gave enough time to sleep in and have the breakfast biffet at Bonk 45 before scheking out. The Classic Queen does not have all the bells and whistles but served 0ur needs. The black out shades were very helpful as there was a very large led billboard right outside our window. Would stay again for ny next trip.

We have stayed here before and returned mostly because we like the staff so much. They are VERY helpful. The heater made quite a bit of noise at night and the hairdryer seemed like it needed to be replaced. We didn't say anything so they weren't given an opportunity to fix the heater, and we didn't care that much about the dryer. The location is very good - close to subway and hop on/hop off buses, etc. Good place for first-timers and oh yes, it's very safe.

The old rooms are horrible I changed to the new rooms they are just decent I love the piano bar every night with the music that was great and the food in the food drinks was good and the staff was friendly and I like that you have great security even though the guy sees me walking up and down he still asked me to see My key two minutes later.

Close to everything we wanted to do in New York. I felt safe
