We have stayed at the Beacon 1-3x a year, for 4-6 days, over the past 10 years. It has proven to be clean, reliable and comfortable. We are happy with the location, which is 2 blocks from the 1 subway. It is across the street from a Fairway Market, which is open very late. There are people on the street and it is safe to go there even at 11 pm. I'm not sure if all the rooms in the Beacon have kitchenettes, but we always take one that does. So, we go to Fairway and buy our breakfast food and fruit and vegetables - much healthier than eating restaurant food for every meal! We have even cooked whole meals there. There is also a Starbucks less than a block away.
The rooms are comfortable - a few of the knick-knacks are a bit tacky, but if we are in a clean and comfortable room, we can deal with tacky. Once we were upgraded to a top floor corner room, and the view was breathtaking. The lower floors can be noisy, but this is New York City, and I think that if you want to stay in a good location, that it will be noisy. I think there are some rooms with interior court yard views - so if you can't stand that type of room, be sure to inquire.
All in all, it's our home in NYC.
