A friend had raved about her stay, so I decided to take advantage of a good deal online. Unfortunately, that good deal meant that I paid for WiFi, which didn't work well anyway. The room was big, which was nice. The window looked out onto 46th Street, which was fun (I could see the marquee and crowds at the Richard...

You could no ask for a better location than The EDISON...main entrance was blocked off due to renovation but our transfer guy was well aware of this. Renovation within the hotel still on-going but it did not spoil our 3 night stay. Traffic in the lobby very busy but staff have it all under control. Security within the hotel excellent,...

The location of this hotel is perfect, basically on Times square, next to the subway and within walking distance of Central Park and other attractions. The room was dated and the bathroom a bit shabby but as it was very reasonably priced and a perfect location, we expected this and it was fine. The staff were helpful and any issues...

The Hotel Edison couldn't be in a better location. Just around the corner from Times Square and multiple subway stations. Saw 11 shows and all were easy to get to. Took three of the free walking tours by Streetwise New York Tours, Midtown, Hell's Kitchen and Tribeca. All were excellent.

I come into the city to see Broadway shows with friends. The hotel is central to all the theaters in Times Square and conveniently located by the subway station.

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.
