An older, but renovated hotel right slap in the middle of Times Square. Maybe 200 yards from the TKTS booth. Small rooms, but comfortable. Ask for extra pillows. Can't beat the price. Very friendly staff. Great restaurant for breakfast .... prices cheaper than home. Excellent bar.
Unique Quality: Absolutely gorgeous lobby. Really. Beautiful art deco area for gathering.
Directions: Times Square
I stayed at the Edison when I visited New York City when I was a University student, so at the time I was not too picky on my surroundings and how I slept. In hind sight, the place was kinda crappy. The hotel room was ok, and the location is great, but the nightclub in the basement, even thought I was many floors up, kept me up all night long. Which was ok, since I did plan on getting as little sleep as possible in New York City....who the hell wants to sleep when there's soooooo much to do!!!
Unique Quality: Great Location in a relatively safe neighbourhood close to all the action.
I was here about 15 yrs ago, so I'm not sure how it has changed, for better or worse. It wasn't really my choice of places to stay, but I met up with some friends who were there on a package from Switzerland. It was probably rated about 1.5-2 *'s then. Actually, I've stayed in some chain hotels that weren't much better. As I recall my room was huge, and it was clean. Definitely an older NYC hotel. The location was terrific for walking around.
I can't put down a price because I don't remember what I paid... and it was 15 yrs ago anyway.
Unique Quality: The most interesting feature of the hotel was that the telephones out-calling feature was turned off for rooms booked under my Swiss friends' travel package. They had been trying to phone back home, but couldn't get their phone to work - I think it was for long distance purposes. It wasn't until I tried to help them that we found out the situation, and I think they ended up calling out from my room. There had been a language problem for the hotel operator to explain it to my friends who couldn't comprehend the accent as well as the English! :-D
Art deco hotel in the theater district. It is not luxurious, but it is comfortable.
There are restaurants in the hotel:
The Supper Club
The Rum House
And Restaurant Row is only a block away.
