The hotel has a great location--a block from a Subway Station on Broadway on the Upper West Side, next door to the Beacon Theater (hence, the name) and an easy walk to neighborhood shops (including the always helpful Duane Reade), the American Museum of Natural History, the New York Historical Society, and even Lincoln Center (about 12 blocks).
But this is the kind of hotel where you'll want to spend time in your room. Staff was helpful and efficient. For the same price as a cramped room in a midtown Hotel, we got a 1 bedroom suite with a kitchenette, nice-sized living room, huge bedroom with king bed, a separate bathroom--and complimentary Internet (which most hotels want to charge for). Furnishings were beautiful, the bed was really comfortable. Although we wanted to see a lot of the city, we weren't in a rush to get there.
The hotel gave me a new perspective on New York City; I always thought midtown was the best place to stay. This hotel changed my mind; I'm now high on the Upper West Side.
