The good: great location, very professional, friendly staff, clean, complimentary coffee The negatives: very dated, no room service, small rooms, no plugs for phone/computer anywhere near bed - extension cords everywhere, old TVs, only place to get water is from the faucet or in 5th floor laundry room vending machine that only takes $1 bills Decent budget option I guess but my room was $300+

Hotel's Favorite
I highly recommend the Beacon, which has become my home away from home when I’m in NYC. I look forward to staying here every year, especially during the NYC marathon, and make sure to stay for at least a week. I just left a couple days ago, and as usual, I was very sad to leave and am already planning my return stay. There’s so much I love about the Beacon: 1) Staff: Each person who works here is EXCEPTIONAL - most have been at the Beacon for at least the 6 years that I’ve been coming, and probably longer. They are all so warm, genuinely helpful, professional and incredibly service- oriented. This is NOT your typical corporate-owned hotel but rather a place that will welcome you and care for you. Dawn Matthews, Reservations Manager (for the Beacon’s own in-house reservations department, not an impersonal off-site phone bank) has helped me find the best room for the best rate to meet my needs for many years, 2) Security: I feel safe and very comfortable staying here as a solo female traveler. 3) Clean: The common areas are meticulous, as was my suite, which was thoroughly cleaned daily by the world class housekeeping staff 4) Convenience: it’s rare to find a NYC hotel room with a kitchenette, which is such a wonderful feature! With its spacious living area and kitchenette, I feel like I have a great NYC apartment when I stay at the Beacon. The best NYC markets are right across the street (Fairway, Citarella, Trader Joe’s) and are perfect for delicious prepared meals and more. 5) Location: Hotel Beacon is perfectly situated on the Upper West Side, a very safe neighborhood, 3 blocks from the subway, 3 blocks from Central Park, and close to many great restaurants, bars, bakeries, shops, and museums. I highly recommend the Beacon and can’t wait to return for my next visit to my home away from home! P.S. All the rooms are great but deluxe suites above 15th floor are my favorite - very spacious and super quiet!

Hotel Beacon is great. I love that each rooms has extra-thick windows, making the room absolutely quiet even when ambulances and fire trucks go by. Also, great location; clean; staff is very helpful and friendly.

We are NY'ers who have since moved. We used to stay at the Park Lane every visit. that hotel has been sold and the transformation does not do it any favors. All the good and reliable staff are gone.We stayed in December at the Beacon and were completely thrilled with our choice. the location is vastly superior to mid-town. It's across from landmarks such as Zabar's and Citarella and the staff is outstanding. We both felt that we were back at our old apartment in the City and were thrilled to be there.

The 5-star reviews are fair and accurate. Our family loved: - the 16th floor suite with rollaway added to accommodate 5. - The kitchenette - the friendly staff especially Michael the valet, Mercedes in housekeeping, and the in house reservations staff who accommodated our early departure by granting us credit for the night we couldn’t stay as planned. Covid Omicron did a number on our Broadway hopes and plans! Boo…but the city still delivers and the quiet(er) neighborhood, personal touches and modestly stylish comfort of the Beacon were all winners for us. I could quibble about water pressure or the pillows, but churlish at Christmas ain’t cool. Thanks, HB.
