We spent 4 nights in the Beacon recently - our third visit there. Still a good value (in so far as that applies in Manhattan) hotel with an efficient staff and a nice bar. Location is good if you don't mind not being close to Times Square; A couple of blocks to the subway, in a residential area with plenty of restaurants, cafes etc. We had a couple of minor gripes this time - lamp wouldnt light ( bulb replaced promptly), plug in bathroom sink wouldnt stay down (didnt report it) and our biggest complaint; we were given a room on Floor11 having requested a high floor. we were on floor 23 last time. When we queried this we were told they were sold out, but we had booked in January! They said they would note it in our file! We'll see. Seemed to be far more tour groups than we had previously seen.
Tip: if you want a queen/king bed be sure to specify; booking a double room gets you 2 ordinary size double beds.
