I have not stayed on the upper west side before, but we gave it a shot. What a pleasant surprise.
The hotel is located across the street from Fairway Market and Citrella's Market. Fairway is an old time grocery store with great values. Citrella's is more upscale, and has a great fish market.
The hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly. The rooms were good size and had a kitchenette. The rooms and baths were nicely appointed and appear modern and fresh.
The location was terrific. Subway stops at 72nd St and 79th St. The Beacon is between 74th and 75th. Only a few blocks from the Museum of Natural History and many good restaurants. We ate at several places that were on New Amsterdam St and were great values and quality.
It was about a $10 cab ride to most places in midtown or the east side.
I will stay here again.
