Just got back from New York and had an amazing time which was helped by staying at this excellent hotel staff were very friendly and answered any question that we asked them room was clean and spacious it was great having a kitchenette amenities were good location was fantastic a subway station is just 3 blocks away. Central park just a short walking distance away there is a fairway market right across from hotel which we used a lot. All plusses from me and no negatives at all well done to management and staff at the beacon hotel I will definitely be recommending this hotel.

After a 6 night stay , The Beacon was perfect for our traveling trio.
The supermarket (Fairway) across the road, deli opposite (Citarella), subway station (72nd st) a 2 minute walk away and minimal noise, makes it a prime location.
The kitchenette in room, and the (level 5) guest self serve laundry= perfect for traveling with an infant! Would return to stay when back in NYC. The 24 hr chemist 'Duane Reade' is super close and handy for kid supplies at anytime, day or night too.
Free wifi is also a bonus.

The Hotel Beacon was a perfect place to visit NYC without being in the thick of people & traffic. Everything is so close by....restaurants, markets, museums, Central Park, subway, etc. Rooms are very clean and roomy, and the staff was more than helpful. If we return to NYC this is where we will stay again for sure!

Room Tip: The higher the room, the better the views.

Again, as I say in my reviews, don’t want to come across as a creature of habit, but is it really a habit when you like a place enough to return to it time after time! This is the attitude I want to convey to you!
We Listened to Rudy Giuliani and went to NYC to give our support just a few weeks after 9/11. We had booked a brand new boutique hotel (no names), but decided to move as rooms were small, and the hotel was geared for a different crowd! It was then when we discovered the Hotel Beacon on the west side at 2130 Broadway (between 74th and 75th)/ we Moved over there and never looked back!
In the years we have been staying there, usually 2 or 3 times per year, we have watched the hotel evolve. It now has a “full fledged” lobby and a great little bar as well! It has always been a great experience- the rooms we always get are a 1 bedroom suite, which has a full kitchen and living room in addition to a bedroom. The Hotel is very comfortable, the staff is excellent (and most have been there a looong time, which is certainly a good sign!). And the price is reasonable for NYC as well! One of the best things we like about the Beacon, besides the Hotel itself is that it is in a great neighborhood, with the emphasis on neighborhood!!! A few blocks from the park, 2 blocks from the #1,2,3,subway at 72nd which can take you ANYWHERE you want to go in the city. Good shopping and fun restaurants in a several block area! If you are a "foodie!, there are interesting restaurants as well as famous and excellent food stores (remember you have a full kitchen here in the suites!), within just a few blocks The Beacon Theater, a great NYC landmark is right next door! We always check to see who is playing at the “Beacon” when we book the Beacon! We have recommended the Hotel Beacon to friends on a number of occasions and have never received a "bad" review from anyone- in fact- most loved it!
All in all, the Hotel Beacon is our hotel of choice when in NYC!

We stayed here because it worked out a bit cheaper to have a suite than two double rooms for our family of four. The location of the hotel was ideal for us as I didn't want to be somewhere noisy and crowded, and this is a nice neighbourhood with easy access to the subway and plenty of places to eat close by. The room was spacious and the beds in the bedroom were very comfortable, but unfortunately the sofa bed is really not suitable for sleeping on. It was old, squeaky and totally wonky! After the first sleepless night we took the mattress off it and slept on the floor. To be honest it would be great if they ditched the sofa altogether and replaced it with a king sized bed in the living room, it would be a perfect suite for a family of four. The kitchenette was useful but we only used it for drinks and snacks really. The shower was barely more than a dribble and the Hairdryer was like something from another era! All that said, for what we paid it worked out pretty good value in comparison to others and I'd probably use it again.

Stayed: June 2014
