Possibly the best hotel in George Town
We've stayed in a lot of hotels in George Town and this is possibly the best so far. While many have great heritage they can use that as an excuse for poor quality fixtures & fittings or services. The style is definitely more modern than some of the others, moving away from the pure classic heritage style of other places. The staff were exceptional, working hard to meet every need. The pool was long enough for lengths although not wide enough for more than two-users, but this is still good for a hotel in central George Town. The noise at night.... well yes, it was karaoke night over the road and although the earplugs helped, they couldn't block out the noise, but that did all end after midnight. Would definitely stay again and would recommend the suites.

Unbeatable service and value
We came for work and stayed extra days. This hotel is so gorgeous! And the service is over the TOP amazing. Location is terrific. I’ve stayed at the E&O which of course has the water view but for historical charm and awesome service this hotel totally rivals the E&O. And when you compare the price it’s not even close. Happy hour and snacks all day, breakfast, walk to everything in a lovingly restored mansion. Wil definitely be back.

A truly wonderful place to stay
It seems that there are too many 5 star reviews for hotels on this site. I have been disappointed many times and now almost completely discount reviews. That being said, staying at the Edison was really wonderful. The hotel is comfortable and there are many nice touches. But what makes this a truly remarkable stay is the attentive staff. Likely the best service I have seen.
