Stayed here for 6 nights with our 21 year old son, in a one bedroom suite. Really appreciated the three closets and extra space this room provides. The kitchen is quite well equipped and having a kettle is fantastic for us tea drinkers. The new laundry is excellent with 4 washers and 4 dryers connected to a swipe to pay machine, great not having to find change. Housekeeping was very efficient and left extra towels for us when requested.
The fairway market across the road has absolutely everything anyone could want and zabars and westside market are also a short walk away up broadway.
72nd St subway is only two blocks away, central park a short walk also.
This is the only hotel we will stay in, in NYC.

We just completed our fourth stay at the beacon, we have visited from Australia and stayed there every time. The large rooms, the location close to the subway and having fantastic Fairways across the road, as well as so many great restaurants in walking distance. Not to mention close to Central Park and the river! This place has it all and now with the new bar, fitness centre and the makeover it was even better. We won't ever stay anywhere else and can't recommend this hotel highly enough. Great helpful staff as well!

I haven't stayed here but checked it out whilst in town. The location of this hotel is excellent and the staff are amazing. The rooms are very spacious and well laid out.

The new Beacon Bar & fitness center are great. The laundry room downstairs is great for families or anyone staying for more than a week. 72nd subway station is very close by and you can be in Times Square in less than 10 mins.

I will be staying here when I return to NYC. The Upper West Side is where a lot of the locals live so you get a real feel for the city. The Fairway supermarket across the road is excellent for picking up food supplies if you wanted a night in. Fusion restaurant around the corner has great lunch deals.

I have just returned from my 2nd stay at the Hotel Beacon and again couldn't fault a thing! The service is excellent, the rooms are spacious and impeccable, location I think is fantastic, easy 15 minute walk to Times Square, so close to Central Park and 2 minute walk to the closest subway. The market across the street is great, with the kitchenette in the room, makes breakfasts very easy and cost effective, little restaurant next door is good for a meal. Would recommend to anyway without question, I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

We stayed here for four nights. There was a large twin room for myself and my husband and my 15 year old daughter slept on a really comfy fold down sofa bed. We had a kitchen area with fridge-freezer, microwave and cooker with hob and oven. There is a fabulous grocery/deli called Fairways across the road where we had great fun buying our breakfast each morning. If you wanted to you could get delicious ready made meals there but better to eat out The hotel is really comfortable and clean and very friendly efficient staff. The doorman is great! A true New Yorker. The location is excellent - very Sex in the City! Lots of nice neighbourhood restaurants and There's a nice bar too in the hotel. We walked everywhere - Central Park is around the corner and Times Square is about 20 minute walk (hard to tell as we dawdled in shops all the way there!). There's a subway station very close by if you are going further afield. I couldn't recommend this hotel higher. It's where I'll stay from now on when I'm in Gotham.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the hotel have great view. We were on the fifth floor which was quiet too (bea...

Nice location. Room was comfortable. Decent amount of space. Very quiet. Got the king bedroom suite. Nice kitchenette. Nice view. Big windows. Service was decent. Doormen and bellboys were nice. Bit overpriced, but so is almost everything else in New York.
