“Excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

The hotel is very close to the 72nd street subway station, few blocks from Central Park and the American Museum of Natural History.
The best thing for families is the well equipped kitchen, which allowed us to cook dinner at "home" many nights.
Across the street there is a nice supermarket and a gourmet shop.
The only thing I think that could improve is the housekeeping: rooms are not so clean.

I stayed at the Hotel Beacon in 2009 for several nights. I found the two bedroom apartment to be of fantastic value. Close to subway, grocery store right across the street, very handy location. It is a few blocks from the Strawberry Fields entry to Central Park.

A very good hotel in all aspects but one, its bar.
Very expensive and not very friendly to hotel guests.
Location is excellent, handy for downtown or a short walk to Central Park
Would return on next visit to New York

Stayed here for our New York shopping trip, the location was great! The subway is very close by so very easy to get everywhere.
There is a kitchenette in the room and a supermarket over the road which is great if like us your on a budget and don't want to eat out to much.
All the staff were really friendly and gave us good shopping tips.

I stayed here for a week with family, and it was a great. The rooms are large, and in immaculate condition.

The location is perfect (right across the road from a grocery store and deli), and surprisingly quiet by Manhattan standards. The residents of the building seemed very friendly, as well as other guests.

The only thing preventing this from being excellent was the staff. The doorman was very friendly, but the reception and other staff were just okay.

When you pay this much for a hotel you expect to be impressed by everything.

Having said that, I would still stay here again.

Stayed here for a week. Spacious and clean room with a small kitchenette. Very easy to get to subway and buses. Friendly and helpful staff. Would stay here again.

Very comfortable beds and great water pressure in the bathroom.

Thanks for making our NYC stay awesome!

We were in a 1-bedroom suite on the 25th floor looking east toward Central Park. It had a full kitchen and was well-appointed. All the comforts of home, and the view was spectacular. We seemed to be right in-between subway stops, so that might be a concern for anyone who has trouble walking. We didn't.
Central Park was 2 long blocks to the east, and Riverside Park was 2 long blocks to the west. Lots of restaurants in this area, and it is on the subway line to Columbia (to the north) and Lincoln Center and the theater district (to the south). There were restaurants outside the hotel for breakfast, and there were also markets where you could buy a few items and put them in the frig. I want to have exactly the same room if I go back again.

Room Tip: We were in a 1-bedroom on the east side and had a great view. I don't know if the rooms on the...
