WHAT'S HOT IN NEW YORK: Hotel Edison

Situated in one of the most dynamic sections of New York City, the Hotel Edison is located right in the middle of Times Square. Nondescript and deceptively small-looking on the outside; upon entering you will find a hotel that winds its way backwards one city block and upwards twenty stories, with more than 800 rooms.


Built in 1931 in the same Grand Art Deco style as Radio City Music Hall, the Hotel Edison is one of New York's treasured hotels and offers special services such as a gift shop, restaurants, theatre tickets, sightseeing, airport transportation, and valet parking.

Conveniently located public transportation is nearby and airports are 45-60 minutes away. Within a relatively short distance of the hotel are the Broadway Theatre District, Empire State Building,Rockefeller Center, United Nations, Radio City Music Hall, Grand Central Station and the Jacob Javits Center.

The heart of this hotel is its magnificent lobby. Completely remodeled to reflect the Art Deco style. Capturing the time and culture of what one imagines Manhattan used to be. The lobby is roped off to preserve the seating area allowing in only hotel guests. Where they can sit in pleasure and view the artistic delights of muraled walls, patterned carpets and grand chandeliers from this bygone era.


Our room was quiet, spacious and comfortable. The bathroom true to the 1930's custom when the hotel was built was small. There was a desk for business travelers, a firm bed and a sleeper sofa for additional guests. The room was clean and looked newly restored.

Full of history and charm the Hotel Edison is an excellent choice. Definitely worth a visit if you are on a budget but still wanting a unique and very New York experience.
