The Hotel Beacon was a perfect home base for my family (2 adults and a 3 yr old) last week. We booked one of the 1 bedroom King suites, and it was essentially a nice 1-bedroom apartment, with living room/kitchenette/dining area plus a fully separate bedroom. It was particularly good on several dimensions + Separate room for our child to sleep in, so he could go to bed early and in quiety/darkness while my husband and I stayed up + Walkability- after checking in, we did not have to use uber or any public transit for the entirety of our 4-day stay, there was so much within walking distance + Safety/pleasantness of the neighborhood- I am admittedly very fond of the UWS, b/c especially compared to other parts of the city it is so quiet and family-friendly Bonus features were the truly amazing amount of closet space in our room and more playgrounds than we could visit in 4 days within walking distance. The only downside was that the bathroom was pretty small. Totally workable, but compared to the truly massive amount of space across the rest of the apartment, it was noticeable. Though my husband did say they had some of the nicest hotel towels he had ever experienced. I read a few reviews that said the decor was dated and the hotel in need of renovation. I did not find this to be the case. I've traveled extensively for work and stayed in many hotels. I would call this one classic and comfortable. It will certainly not wow you in terms of the luxury finishes in the room or make you feel like you are at an incredibly swanky hotel, but everything is very tasteful and well-maintained. This hotel will be a top choice for me when looking to stay in NYC again.

Hotel's Favorite
Location was amazing and the room was excellent. The twin room with little kitchenette was very spacious and the beds were comfortable. The was by far the best hotel of our 6 week travel. We stayed here for a week and it was quiet, safe and handy to nice supermarkets and places to eat. Lovely views from the upper floors. Also close to subway line red 1 (72nd steet) that will take you most tourist places you need to go. Staff were very friendly especially the housekeeping and door staff. We both we so impressed by our stay here. only thing we would say is that the bathroom was a cramped and little-outdated with a shower over a bath but we didn't mind. It was like staying in a little apartment rather than a fancy hotel, which was one of it's charms.

Stayed in a suite with view with three small children and my husband. Excellent cleaning service, laundry room is useful, neighborhood is very nice, lots of restaurants but not that noisy. Subway 1 is very close , walking distance. Did not need much from front desk so can’t say anything about service quality in that sense. View of sunset from the room was spectacular. Bed linens are good quality. There was a bit of a smell in one of the rooms, like if someone had smoked there, but despite this it was very comfortable and cleaned diligently.

Great experience at Hotel Beacon. We had a king deluxe suite. It was very spacious. The main bed was comfy, but the sleeper sofa was just okay. The room had all amenities one could need, and the kitchenette was great for washing our baby’s bottles every night. The area is very safe, walkable to Central Park and a lot of other things. It is far from downtown, but still a nice respite to come home to at night. Would stay here again.

If you're looking for a place to stay on the upper west side, Beacon is a solid choice. The rooms are clean and spacious (by NYC standards). The neighborhood is walkable, pleasant, and safe with great food options all around it. I've stayed in November and in August, and both times the temperature was good in the room and I didn't hear much street noise.

I always look forward to staying at Hotel Beacon. For my money, it's one of the best values in upper Manhattan - east or west side. It's the perfect location on the UWS, right on Broadway, walkable to Central Park. Quiet, comfortable, clean, and I love that some of the rooms have full kitchens.

Great hotel in a fantastic area. Felt super safe and there were TONS of great restaurants, coffee shops, and Central Park nearby! Our room was a very good size, very quiet, and clean (quiet and clean are always our 2 main criteria)! The staff was exceptional, always friendly and ready to help! The lobby is pretty non existent, but it's NYC, don't waste time in a lobby when there's an entire beautiful city to explore! I thought this was an excellent value considering how big the room is! Will definitely stay here again! The bed was very comfortable, as a matter of fact, it was the best I've ever slept at a hotel due to how quiet the room was and comfortable the bed was!

Super quiet considering busy street even on 4th floor. Also didn't hear from any neighbour's. Beds comfortable, even sofa bed Super fast WiFi Lots of space for four people Fantastic room cleaning Delicious "doughnut shop" coffee Well positioned for Metro and landmark locations, we could walk to the Rockefeller centre through Central Park, without trouble. Why fridge that big? Bit noisy when using lounge as a bedroom, we got used to it. Kitchen tired and gloomy Bathroom a little tired

I opted for a nicer room and paid for breakfast at a diner next door. The room was fine-the bathroom was very outdated and cramped. I did not enjoy the breakfast and skipped the additional 2 days I had already prepaid. I was disappointed that when I asked to extend my checkout by an hour I was asked to pay an additional half-day rate. I understand if it is not possible but I have never been asked to pay for this courtesy . Not worth it to return in a city with so many other options.

We've visited NYC several times but this was the first time we stayed on the Upper West Side. We absolutely LOVED the location. The Hotel Beacon is in such an interesting and vibrant neighborhood full of nice shops, terrific restaurants and bakeries and upscale residences. Lots of moms pushing strollers, people walking their dogs, etc. We felt completely safe and at home. It was so nice to be away from the bustle of Times Square or busy midtown, even though we were in the city as tourists. The hotel was a refuge at the end of a busy day. The hotel is 2 short blocks from the 72 St subway and a block from a bus stop. We took trains, buses and taxis during our trip and it was very easy to get around. There's a great supermarket directly across the street (Fairway) with anything you would want. Trader's Joes is two blocks away and had the same prices as our local store. There were lots of casual restaurants within easy walking distance including Le Pain Quotidien (breakfast), Daily Provisions (outstanding), La Playa Betty (tacos and frozen drinks), Levain Bakery (cookies) and a French macaron bakery on the corner that had ridiculously good almond croissants. Bagel Talk nearby on Amsterdam had nice, fresh bagels. The American Museum of Natural History and Central Park were nearby and we walked to both. Tip: AMNH has free admission the last hour of every day. It's a great way to see a specific exhibit like the dinosaurs and you don't need a timed ticket. Our room was quiet. We did not hear any street noise or other guests. The room was also huge by NYC standards. We had 2 beds, a nightstand, an upholstered chair, a desk, a dresser, a big TV and a small bistro table with 2 chairs as well as a kitchenette. I am certain there are 5 stars rooms at this hotel but our room fell a little short due to 2 things: soft beds and mold in the shower. We did not complain to the staff because we didn't have time to change rooms. We had to dash out after checking in to catch a show, then got in late. Employees were friendly and helpful, though, particularly the housekeeping staff and the two doormen. I wish I got their names to thank them in this review. We would stay here again - and recommend the hotel - but would be sure to check the beds and shower upon checking in.
