I stayed at the Beacon for 3 nights in February 2011 as a sole traveller for leisure purposes.
The hotel is clean, comfortable, with quiet bedrooms and a quiet and comfortable lobby where it is possible to sit and read/relax. There is free access to the internet via a small business centre. The has no restaurant but there is a coffee shop next door and many more in the near neighbourhood. It is nicely located in the Upper West Side and, considering Manhattan hotel prices generally, represents reasonably good value in the medium price category. The cost of making international phone calls from the land line phones in the guest rooms seemed very high to me, and travellers would be advised to check these costs before attempting to use the hotel phone system.
The big positive factor about this hotel is the excellent service at the front desk. This desk is always well staffed with 2 or 3 well trained staff who handled all my many queries very efficiently. In some hotels I have been in, getting attention at the front desk can be slow and may require persistence. Not so at the Beacon. The front desk is well resourced at all times and the service is excellent.
