“Will stay here again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We usually stay at the Lucerne, but I think I like the Beacon a little more. The location is perfect. The desk staff was very friendly and were nice enough to us store our luggage there for almost a whole day after we checked out. The room was very nice and spacious by NYC standards. It was quiet, with very little noise from the street or hallway. I would absolutely stay there next time.

Very friendly hotel! Patrick was extremely helpful and gave excellent recommendations each day! We loved everywhere he sent us! The hotel is in a good location...close to the subway and Central Park. I would recommend staying at the Beacon and asking Patrick for restaurant and bar suggestions.

We (2 adults and a 12 and 10 year old) have just stayed at the hotel for 7 nights in a 2 bedroom suite with kitchenette. We could not find one fault!

Pro's:
Location - a 3 minute walk to 72nd street station. It is an express stop so Times Square is a very short ride on the express route. Great supermarkets and restaurants across the road. Quieter more residential area. Short walk to Central Park and museums.

Room- clean, looked like it had been recently renovated. Great view. A very comfortable bed. Full kitchen. Good quality shampoos etc. Plenty of cupboard/ storage space.

Laundrette - on the 5th floor. Easy to use and efficient.

Staff -polite and helpful.

I will definitely be recommending this hotel to my friends, and will definitely stay at this hotel when next in New York.

Stayed with my family in hotel beacon from June 26 to June 30. Loved every minute of it. After requesting them for a upper room was given a one bedroom room on the 25 th floor where the view was spectacular. They fairway super market across the street was one of the best supermarkets I have every visited. Every item from across the world available. The laundromat on the 5th floor of the hotel was a blessing. The staff was very polite and helpful. If you want to live like a upper west New Yorker then hotel beacon is the place to stay

I stayed a the Beacon for 5 nights while attending a conference at Columbia University. The staff at the Beacon was extremely helpful. The king room I had was very comfortable. The location is excellent! I highly recommend the Beacon.

Small by some standards but big in everything, nice roooms, nice staff, the doorman/bell hop, was charming and helpful and ditto reception. Always seemed a member of management was available in the lobby with a smile. Locationed on Broadway, we walked from Times Square, Central Park, and the walkway along the Hudson. The supermarket across the road was excellent for everything, one night using the cooking facilities in the room we just had a quiet night in with a nice bottle of wine. Good restaurants within walking distance. If I was to go back to New York this is where I would stay.
