“Highly recommended. Would stay here again”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

3 of us stayed in a 1 bedroom suite here in mid-April. We really enjoyed our stay. The suite had plenty of room and with a handy kitchenette (we didn't cook, but we like to have breakfast in the room and pack a lunch so we can picnic while sightseeing). The Fairway Market across the street is well stocked and open from 6am - 1pm. Subway station is 2 blocks away. Central Park 3 blocks away.

Staff were helpful and courteous. The room was clean and in good repair.

The fitness room is a little sparse. A few cardio machines and a cable resistance machine. No free weights. When I checked it out when we arrived, I was a little disappointed as I like to have some free weights and a little more room to exercise in. As it turned out, we were on the go from 9 am until 11 pm every day, so I didn't see the inside of the fitness centre again.

We debated whether or not to book a car service or shuttle to get us to the airport on our departure day. We didn't want to get caught having trouble hailing a cab. In the end, there was no problem getting a cab late on a Saturday morning. Cab was cheaper.

Great value suites in a great location. Highly recommend this place.

We recently stayed here and it was not only beautiful but it is in a perfect location. We had a great dinner right around the corner and then went to a concert right next door! They upgraded us when we checked in and our room was gorgeous. We would stay there again!

After spending time at Hotel Beacon for a family trip last year, we happily returned this year, and it was even better. We were able to get four rooms total for the extended family. The new Beacon Bar is now open - an attractive, easy place to hang out in the evening. One of the three elevators being repaired is now fixed, making it quick to get an elevator going up or down. I didn't use it, but there's now a workout facility as well. We used Uber to get around, and compared to last year there just seemed to be more vehicles available with less wait time, and we consistently got the larger SUV (for 5 - 7) with limited waiting time, which wasn't the case last year.

All the same positives from our past trip were still there: super easy access to Fairway across the street for food, full (admittedly small) kitchen great for preparing breakfast and snacks, full dish cleaning service every day, a few blocks walk to Central Park, just a block away from the 72nd St. subway to get the 1/2/3 [we used it to go to Battery Park this year, to see the Stature of Liberty], a nice walk to the theater district and Times Square, and a slew of great restaurants within just a few blocks radius.

Overall, just a perfect, central location with easy access to all parts of Manhattan, and enough amenities that you can easily eat in your room - just great with kids. I'm not aware of a better choice for our family in the investigations we made. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We got a suite for a family of 5. Mom and two youngest slept in the king-sized bed. Oldest kid sle...

Great place to have a beer on a sunny warm day! Go on the terrace and enjoy the views. Extremely slow service on 28th Feb 2011 in the evening. It took 1.5 hours to order and about 1 hour more to get a food.

this is an interesting hotel. smack dab on the UWS, it is convenient to everything. the rooms are quirky, sometimes huge, and sometimes the bathroom is so small, you have to go outside to change your mind. lots of updates needed. but, it attracts an interesting international crowd, some of the views are spectacular, and no complaints about the service.

Fantastic hotel, friendly porters and great location to subway, deli, and Central Park. Rooms were spacious and beds were sooooo comfy after hours of walking the streets of this fabulous city. Highly recommend to anyone with children as well as couples.
