This is a brilliant hotel, situated outside the chaos of Times Square. As we were on a holiday visiting New York for the first time, we were up early every morning travelling to all the tourist attractions.
We travelled into Times Square everyday. There is a subway station 3 blocks from the hotel (6 or 7 minutes walk) named 72nd street. From this station there were express trains frequently which took less than 5 minutes to get to Times Square. The hotel front of desk staff were very helpful in showing us where to go and provided maps etc.
There is not a restaurant in the hotel beacon, however there is a diner next door which is reasonably priced, lovely food and always busy! (French toast was amazing!)
Hotel beacon rooms were very spacious, we had a two bedroom suite, one room was a double sofa bed, and the other room had 2 double beds in, which easily slept two of us in each of them. There were kitchen facilities although we did not use them, as well as tea and coffee facilities. Both rooms had big flat screen TV's, and the whole suit was very spacious.
The bathroom shower was very good (powerful) and we were also provided with shampoo, conditioner, bar of soap, body lotion and dental rinse, which were all useful.
The whole hotel was extremely clean all the time and would recommend anyone to stay here. Was a brilliant all round stay and would definitely stay here again!
