I am just back after a fabulous if not cold trip to New York where we were lucky enough to stay at the Hotel Edison. I would like to share my thoughts on the hotel with you.
The Edison hotel was built in 1931in true Art Deco style it is situated on 228 West 47th Street just half a block from Times Square and one block from restaurant row. A few steps in either direction and you can enjoy the great theatres of Broadway so the situation of this hotel is perfect. From our bedroom window we could see Times Square.
The Room (2118)
I unlocked the door and ahead was a small passage that lead into a large corner room. It was very bright as sun streamed in three large windows. And together with the high ceilings made it very light and airy. When you entered the room the first thing you came to was the dressing table / Writing desk which had a drawer with writing paper postcards and a pen also in the drawer was the laundry bag. Above it hung a large round mirror and on top was a lamp and a clock radio. There was a chair to sit at the desk. There were twin beds with wooden headboards and navy patterned bedspreads, between which was a bedside table with lamp and telephone. Above the beds were framed pictures.
There was a large 4 drawer chest with a cupboard on top which when opened housed a large TV and the remote was on another small table between the windows. The windows were beautifully dressed with nets, cream curtains, pelmets and tiebacks. There were ample plugs for recharging the batteries and a small bin for rubbish.There were three doors of the room so on further investigation one was a large shelved cupboard that had all the phone books in it. Door two had a full length mirror on the outside and was a walk in wardrobe with loads of hanging space also hooks for coats and a luggage rack plus ironing board and iron. Door three was the bathroom.
Had a bath, shower, toilet and wash hand basin in white with a shelf over the sink, there was also a strip light over the sink and a small opening window behind the toilet. There was also a hairdryer but after seeing blue flashes coming off it decided just to towel dry my hair.
this family run café is open 7 days a week mon - fri 6am to 10pm and sun 6am to 8pm and offers good food at reasonable prices. We only ever had breakfast but the cereal was Kellogg's and my son loved the waffles. If you expect a huge Florida brekkie you will be disappointed.
Cocktail Lounge with live entertainment open tue-sat 8-30pm to 1am and sun 12pm - 4am. It was quite small and dark so we didn't go in so again can't comment
Most of the décor is fresh but some of the carpets on the way to the room can only be described as tired and in need of replacing though room carpet was fine. I am not sure if the lower floors may be affected by traffic noise we certainly were fine.
I loved this hotel the staff were all so friendly nothing was too much trouble which made for a very enjoyable stay. I would highly recommend this hotel.

It has been pointed out that I did not include the price but as this was a gift bought as a package I do not know the nightly rate sorry.
