The Hotel Edison

Yup, Thomas Edison was on hand to turn on the lights when this historic New York City hotel opened in 1931. Not too shabby! This art deco classic is conveniently located right in the middle of the theatre district and steps away from Times Square.

It’s always about the details:

When I arrived, I was able to see artist Arnie Charnik working on the murals that grace the lobby.

Although they do look new, their art deco styling fits in perfectly with the hotel and are a nice nod to the history of New York City.

The rooms won’t break the bank and are still very stylish and roomy.

And views…did somebody request a view? How about this from the balcony of my room?

The hotel has also been featured in a number of movies. Luca Brasi's murder in “The Godfather” was filmed at the Edison, it served as the penthouse in Woody Allen's “Bullets over Broadway”…

and Michael Keaton is seen drinking at the hotel's bar, the Rum House, in “Birdman.”

Next time you’re in New York City, be sure to stay at the Edison; operators are standing by!

Those two light fixtures are incredible. Whoever invented those should get an award.
