More Room Types

Thomas Edison himself turned on the lights at the 1931 Grand Opening of the Hotel Edison. An Art Deco masterpiece, this 800-room hotel towers over West 47th Street and spans an entire city block. 

A vaulted lobby welcomes guests with marble flooring, gold trimming and colorful murals. 

Spacious by New York City standards (250-300 square feet, versus the typical 200-250), all guest rooms feature Frette linens and C.O. Bigelow bath products. Added in 2014, new Signature Collection guest rooms also feature marble bathrooms, complimentary Wi-Fi and bottled water, weekday newspaper delivery, and dedicated check-in and check-out. 

When guests are not taking in a show -- Broadway theaters are steps from the hotel's front door -- shopping, or dining out, they can take advantage of some of the hotel's amenities, such as a 24-hour fitness center, 24-hour business center, or complimentary wine hour with live music every Tuesday and Friday evening.
