5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

Fantastic hotel, friendly porters and great location to subway, deli, and Central Park. Rooms were spacious and beds were sooooo comfy after hours of walking the streets of this fabulous city. Highly recommend to anyone with children as well as couples.

We stayed for 6 nights in April 2014. Since we had taken a red-eye, no room was available. The front desk staff greeted us with a smile and a customer-focused, helpful attitude, and the concierge efficiently checked our bags so that we were able to enjoy a day of sightseeing prior to checking in that evening. That friendly greeting was repeated every time we entered or departed the hotel. In addition, each member of the housekeeping staff also asked us how our day was going, etc. The room was a very spacious suite - unlike some of the cramped spaces one can encounter in NYC. The room was clean and in good repair. The pod coffee machine (with complimentary pods!) was a plus. We stopped by local bakeries for pastries when we returned every evening and there is a nice grocery store across the street to purchase OJ and milk for the nice-sized refrigerator. It's an easy walk to Central Park, and 2-3 minutes walk to the subway. We're looking forward to a return stay.

Room Tip: The suites with king-sized beds have bedrooms that are near elevator shafts, so there is the chance...

I always stay at the Beacon when I can get a room. Very convenient and comfortable. I met my grandchildren at the new Beacon Bar which was very "New York." All in all, it was great. I highly recommend breakfast at the Fairway, across the street.

This was our second Beacon Hotel stay in two years. I usually hate returning to the same place because it's never as good as you remember but that's not true of NY or of the Beacon. This place is a gem and what made it even better was that one of the front desk staff whom I remember fondly, Mary ,was there. She exhibited her great service and humour. Love her. Our room was fantastic, pity the weather wasn't!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great and roomy, fantastic value for NYC

My husband & I stayed for 5 nights with our 2 daughters aged 18 & 15 in April 2014. The location is great right near the subway with an express train to Times Square (42nd st). Staff were friendly & helpful, a supermarkets & dinners, Starbucks close by. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. 3 closets held our 4 suitcases so they were accessible but out of the way. Only 2 minor negatives (or hotel requests) The closets would have made finding things in our suitcases even easier if they had lights & like all sofa beds it could have been comfier. Would stay again.

just back from NYC having spent 6 nights at the hotel beacon, there were 5 of us, we had a bedroom, sittingroom with small kitchenette which was a great size for the family. we were on the 18th floor which was very quiet. Fairways across the road for picking up a few food items, viand diner next door was very good. the staff were very friendly and helpful. The subway was less than 5 minutes walk away!. We had takeaway pizza from patsys pizza which was very good. Levain bakery had lovely cakes to take away.

We got great value with the room rate and would highly recommend especially to families! Look forward to coming back there in the future!!

My husband and I recently returned from10 fabulous days in New York at the Beacon Hotel with our 3 children aged 14, 12 and 12. The hotel was fantastic from start to finish. We had a 2 bedroom suite on the 14th floor facing Broadway. They were great sized rooms with very comfy beds, 2 bathrooms and excellent kitchenette with all we needed. We ate various meals in the room as well as eating out which saved us a lot of money. There is a great market across the road which is pricey but cheaper than eating out. It is close to the subway and a short walk from the river and Central Park. It is the best hotel we have stayed in as a family and we would highly recommend it. The staff are friendly and helpful, it is quiet at night (for New York!) and there is a guest launderette which is easy to use and useful as we were staying over a week! We were sad to leave and would return in a heartbeat. Well done Beacon!!
