    Charming old yet modern. Nice design. Friendly staff. Thoughtful gestures such as ear plugs to deafen the loud singing from across the street. But then again, you will be so full and tired from eating and walking, the sounds will not be a problem after the first night.

    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.

    Lovely service at a new design boutique hotel

    I was reading reviews of different Hotels in Georgetown and finally chose this because of the pictures. It proved to be a great choice. Service is overwhelming, the lounge serves an afternoon tea and a lovely happy hour with wine and cheese. Designs are stylish whereas in some of the other hotels Interior looked shabby. Good location, walking distance everywhere

    Beautiful property with excellent staff. Very helpful and pleasant. The hotel is right in the heart of the heritage center and walking distance to places of interest and excellent restaurants. The hotel provides complimentary refreshments 24/7 in a lovely air conditioned kitchen. Highly recommend.

    Accomodation Hiccup

    During my stay , the hotel notified that breakfast IS NOT SERVED ( to all guests) , which they had already informed hotels.com among others. On the other hand, Hotels.com had stated on their booking website that a continental breakfast is included in my hotel rate. Please rectify this misinformation.! Thank you.
