Great Location but better than that the beds are very good and it is very clean. When we return to NYC for our next visit, Edison Hotel Times Square will be our first choice. the staff was helpful and extra towels were sent right up.

We could not believe when we came into our room after dinner, that the window was missing - then we saw it fell into the room! Since we were on the 10th floor we were so glad it did not fall onto the street. We called the desk, they sent 2 repair men whom did not seem surprised at all,...

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.
