Had a great stay here. Needed a value hotel in NYC, but was concerned about what "value" would look like. A few blocks off of Central Park on the upper west side, this location works. Frankly, it's in a nice section of town an away from some of the craziness. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was very nice. Great bed, clean and contemporary surroundings, microwave & fridge (not that I needed it). I'd highly recommend.

I stayed here for 2 weeks when I came to run the NYC Marathon and had a great time. The rooms are large and despite facing onto Broadway the insulation on the windows meant I didnt hear the traffic. Loved the kitchenette in the room which was handy for breakfasts

The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and I'll definitely be staying here again. Great value

This was our first trip to NY. We were a party of 4 and stayed there from 6th Dec to 12th. Hotel was great. We stayed in a 1 bed roomed suite which was really spacious. It had a lounge/dining area together with a small but compact kitchen. Although kitchen is tiny it was adequately equipped. Great room for family with children.Two double beds with great mattresses plus the settee in lounge turned out to be queen size bed.

Rooms cleaned daily with clean towels. Free wi-fi. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Would definitely recommend. If I had to criticise it would be that double beds should be king size but that is all.

This was our first stay in New York and I wanted a contemporay rather than "out of the box" corporate hotel, the Beacon ticked the box, old movie feel, great staff, pleasant room with everything you need for a short to medium break, comfortable beds, kitchenette, an great location easy walk to Central Park and 5 min to the station on 72nd Street.
Good place to walk the length of Broadway right down into Times Sq. But also great to get away from the bustle of Christmas when needed.
If I was to suggest an improvement it would be for the hotel to provide breakfast option, also travellers nee to be aware that local cuisine is quite limited in choice.
Overall a great place to stay, in a very good location AN would defiantly recommend.

Room tip: Book early

Travelling from Australia, this is the second time we have stayed at this gem of a hotel. Last time was December 2010. This time the whole family and partners stayed - 8 of us in total for 9 nights. We booked two 2xdouble bed/double rooms which also had a fold up bed/lounge. The hotel is clean, large rooms with kitchenettes. Staff are great. 74th street and Broadway is a great location and a stone throw from 72nd street subway station (where all the red line subway trains stop). You can easily walk to Times Square, Central park etc. What I like is that the upper west side is clean and far away enough to escape from the tourist hustle and bustle but also closer enough to easily experience the hustle and bustle of what New York is all about. I cannot recommend the Beacon highly enough!
