“A Beacon of quiet in the City that never sleeps”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

This hotel was our first opportunity to sleep in a bed after 19 hours on an aircraft. The front-desk person was very cheerful and we even managed to get an extra bed (fold-out couch rather than a roll-away). With Fairfield Markets across the road (Broadway) and Starbucks around the corner, we decided that breakfast could be sorted in the morning. We were able to walk down to 42nd Street without any bother. The kitchenette had a good sized fridge so we were able to stock up on essentials like milk and soft drinks (Americans call them sodas). Future breakfasts were cereal, toast and that all important coffee.

Room Tip: We had no noise problems on the Northside, even though there were two different concerts at the Beac...

We stayed here for one night before and after a cruise, we stayed on a high floor on the side and then on the front both great views! Bed was lovely and comfortable and also the kitchenette well equipped, loved the coffee maker! 10 minute walk to the Natural History Museum and an entrance to Central Park and about 15 mins in a taxi down to Times Square. Would definitely stay in Hotel Beacon again if we went back to NYC!!!

The hotel's location, within 4 minutes walk of 72nd St subway (Lines 1,2 &3), is great. Excellent food shop opposite. 12 minutes walk to central park, 15 to Lincoln Centre.

We had a king suite on the 15th floor facing east. it was great, just what we needed. having a separate sitting room is a boon for city holidays. We used the small kitchenette for preparing breakfast, and snacks that need little work. Although it has a full sized cooker, there is not really sufficient space or equipment for preparing major meals. i wouldn't want to anyway. I was on holiday! Staff clear away dishes left in the sink & replace them with fresh ones each day. Bed was very comfortable. Room was quiet with windows shut.

We were first allocated a spacious suite on the 6th floor, but it faced a brick wall and was dark. We had booked 6 months in advance, but the manager took on board our disappointment and moved us the following day. thank you!

Warning for European travellers. In New York taxes are added on top of the quoted price. So our room cost $385 but we ended up paying near to $450 per night. The same applies in shops and restaurants - taxes on top of quoted price. :-(

We would stay at the hotel again if we returned to NY.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 14th floor or above, particularly at the rear, facing east, in order to have g...

We stayed seven nights in this hotel and loved it. We were on the 20th floor so had a great view. The staff were first rate, the rooms were clean and very comfortable. Great little kitchen with food market across the road so could eat at the hotel. Close to everything. Only took us 1/2hr to walk to Times Square. Thanks for the great time.

First of this reveiw is only about the bar, not the hotel itself. I had drinks at the bar with a friend, I ordered Captain Morgan and coke, after having three drinks I found out that they did not have Captain Morgan and was giving me something else. The bartender never told me she did not have Captain Morgan or asked me if another type of rum was ok. After finding out and complaining about it, all that was done was one drink was taken off of my bill. Everyone of the false drinks should have been removed. Not only was I fooled but I was also made to pay for something I did not order. All the phoney drinks should have been removed. On top of that, between myself and my friend we had 5 drinks all together and the bill was over 100 dollars. that averages 20 dollars a drink. That is crazy. Being in hotel management and also managing a bar all I could say is this would never happen at my place. I say stay away from this bar cause it is so overpriced and you may not know what it is you are getting to drink.

Room Tip: Stay away from the bar

This is an ideal hotel for a visit to New York. The location is ideal - its just a short walk from Central Park and a few minutes from the subway. We were here fro 4 nights and used the subway regularly (definitely worth buying a 7-day pass). It was about a 30 minute walk down to Time Square withy plenty to look at on route. We had breakfast at the Viand cafe, just next door to the hotel - definitely recommended with friendly staff. Patsy's pizza place just a few minutes walk from the hotel is also worth a visit. We had a small kitchen area which was definitely worth while. Good croissants can be bought from the Fairway supermarket over the road from the hotel and taken back to your room for breakfast.

Spent 7 nights at the Beacon. The suite was spacious with all necessary amenities. Hotel staff were friendly and professional. Location is convenient to the park, museums, restaurants and the 72nd St. subway. Beaconbar is an asset.
