We booked a short stay at this appealing, but unassuming hotel after reading its many rave reviews.
The Upper West Side location is excellent, a Subway station yards away, crosstown and downtown bus stops nearby, and plenty of local diners and small restaurants nearby.
Our bedroom was larger than the norm for the city, we had a small kitchen, perfect for preparing breakfast or a snack, the bathroom was good, with nice toiletries, and a coin operated laundry made it perfect for the longer stay we plan for our next visit. The concierge team are knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Opposite is a superb Fairway food store, selling the widest range of foods we have ever seen, there is a wine store attached to the hotel, as well as a pleasant small restaurant, plus the bonus of the Beacon theatre on site. Within walking distance is the excellent Natural Hisory museum, and just a short bus ride away is the outstanding, glorious, Metropolitan Museum a feast for the senses. Wonderful walks and running paths are to be found in nearby Central Park, and the wide range of small local shops and businesses make the Beacon a perfect home from home, attested to by the hotel's permanent residents.
