Our family of 5 stayed at the Hotel Beacon for 11 nights. This hotel was one of only a few that offered a two bedroom suite with living room and kitchenette that would accommodate all of us.
I was extremely impressed by our room as it was perfect for us and had all the amenities required, this is one of those times when the expectations set on the website are met in real life. Two really good sized bedrooms, a living area, a place to eat and a small kitchen. Being on a corner it had good light and views into Broadway as well.
The location on the upper west side was also ideal. Just two blocks from 72nd street station which is also an express station stop! meaning that it is only one stop or 5 minutes to Times Square Station. After a day in the hustle and bustle of mid town and lower manhatten, the upper west side is a quiet oasis by comparison. It was also very convenient to Central Park where we enjoyed several walks.
The hotel is simple in character and not over the top compared to other more pretentious hotels, with very helpful and attentive staff who didn't hesitate to assist with any enquiry.
I would not hesitate in recommending Hotel Beacon and I endorse all the positive reviews on trip advisor that I saw before selecting the hotel.
