The only hotel in Washington Heights, Edge Hotel crowns the highest point in Manhattan. The 54-room Edge Hotel offers close proximity to many famous NYC attractions. The historical area is home to many of New York City’s important cultural institutions and historic landmarks, including the Morris-Jumel Mansion, the oldest house in Manhattan, and Fort Tryon Park, a lush 67-acre expanse overlooking the Hudson River. There are also stunning views of the George Washington Bridge and Hudson River from breezy outdoor patios. A stay at the Edge is a nice alternative to staying in the center of Manhattan, as it offers a sense of peace and quiet and has an affordability factor.

My husband and I stayed a night here as we had appointments at the university hospital the next day.
It was really nice to be within walking distance for this early appointment.
The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The in room Keurig was much welcomed! The front staff were a pleasure to deal with.
My only issue was the accessible room we had, the tile floors in the bathroom and shower area were extremely slippery. I had to line towels down just to shower and get back to the bed which I'm sure the room cleaning staff didn't appreciate.
This is within a few blocks of Columbia University Medical Center where my husband had appointments. The walk to and from the hospital was very easy and along main/busy roads. At checkin we were provided a list of nearby food and stores which was very helpful.
