Affordable Hotel in Midtown

Central Location, Cheap Rooms

Having trouble finding an affordable hotel near Times Square? Look no further than The Edison Hotel on 47th Street. It's steps from Times Square and in the heart of the Broadway Theater District.  In 1931, Thomas Alva Edison turned on the lights at the grand opening of this hotel. Step into the lobby and you will think it’s still the 1930s. The art deco lobby is stunning with its wall murals, wall sconces, and patterned tile floors and carpet.

If you are flying into LaGuardia, it’s a 45-minute ride to the hotel, and JFK Airport is an hour away. Schedule your airport transfer to the hotel when you make your reservation. 

Budget-friendly Hotel

Midtown Manhattan has so many attractions and the Edison Hotel is in the middle of them all. The Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Carnegie Hall are just a few of the spots you won’t want to miss. The Garment district, Hell’s Kitchen, and Central Park are just a few blocks in one direction or another. Catch a few Broadway shows while you are in the neighborhood. The Edison Hotel is also convenient to Penn Station, Grand Central Station, and Port Authority Bus Terminal.

The Edison offers complimentary wine hour every Tuesday and Friday evening at 5:00 P.M. with live music. The Edison Café serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Enjoy live entertainment and tasty libations at the Edison Rum House, next to the lobby. Airport transfers and concierge help with event tickets are just a couple of ways the staff at the Edison Hotel work to make your stay pleasant.

Charming Manhattan Rooms

You will love the rooms at the Edison Hotel. The guest rooms are attractive and uncluttered. They have created the ideal environment to relax and rejuvenate after a long day of sight-seeing in the Big Apple. Snuggle up under the down comforter atop the pillow top bed while you catch up on a favorite show on the flat screen television in your room.

The Bottom Line

The Edison Hotel is the perfect spot to stay if you want to visit Times Square, see Broadway shows, and see some of the most iconic buildings in this country. They offer affordable rates if your dates are flexible and last-minute deals that fit any budget. The Edison Hotel is like The Manhattan at Times Square and Paramount Hotels in place and price but with better decor.
