We've just arrived back from NYC where we stayed at Hotel Beacon.
From the minute we walked into the hotel we were impressed. We checked in and were told we were in a double double room, however I asked if we could change to a king room on a high floor instead. This was no problem for them. We had a fabulous view of San Remo and the upper East side from our room on the 19th floor. Very clean room with iron and ironing board, TV with cable and on demand and plenty of storage space. We also had a handy kitchenette with stove, microwave, kettle and coffee maker. The bed was very comfortable and the hotel is in a lovely quiet area on the upper west side.
There's a fantastic market across the street and a lovely wine store next door to the hotel. 72nd street subway station is less than 2 minutes away.
The only minor criticism is that the lobby does not do the rest of the hotel justice. It's in need of a little refurbishment.
I've stayed in other hotels in NYC in the past, which were small and dingy- however this was something completely different- lovely sized room and lovely surroundings. It may not be in midtown but it is totally worth the 5 minute subway ride out of the center to get a much better hotel for a much better price. I will definitely be returning and would recommend to anyone travelling to NYC.
