We stayed at Hotel Beacon from 25 June for 7 nights. What a wonderful choice it was! We had a suite which had everything we needed for three adults I cannot recommend this hotel more highly. Everyone was so welcoming, housekeeping clean and always friendly, front desk staff very professional. Our next stop on our trip was New Orleans and Ryan from the Concierge desk even went to the trouble of making a list of restaurants to visit when we got there! He was so much help to us and we appreciate his kind gesture. The doormen were also such a pleasure helping us with directions and best places to shop. All that is left to say is that you could not go wrong in staying at the Beacon The hotel of choice for Aussies in the USA. Brilliant!

Room Tip: Close to Central Park, upper West location, quieter end of Manhattan .

There is not much to add as the many reviews demonstrate the quality of this hotel on the UWS. I was incredibly impressed by their immediate attention to my emails prior to our arrival. They were prepared for our visit and answered all my questions upon arrival.

As mentioned by others, the neighborhood is fantastic. I can't imagine ever staying in mid-town again. The proximity to the 72nd Street station on the 1,2, and 3 trains and the express option to get downtown is a huge bonus.

The size of the room and value based upon NYC prices is without question. We will be returning to the Beacon. The staff made our stay quite pleasant.

Room Tip: Get a high floor for great views of the Manhattan skyline.

Our family of six were extremely pleased with the accommodations at Hotel Beacon. We booked a two bedroom suite and were not disappointed. Plenty of room for everyone, two bathrooms, a comfortable living and kitchen area. The upper west side location was perfect and the staff was extremely helpful. Grocery stores across the street, Museum of Natural History is a short walk and a subway stop a couple blocks away. We look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Higher the room the quieter it is. Bring a sound machine just in case.

First things first: If you like Times Square, then don't stay at the Beacon. If, on the other hand, you want to experience New York as New Yorkers do, then don't miss this fantastic hotel. We stayed in a two-room suite that was giant by NYC standards, and even had a full kitchen. Wish we'd known about that when our two kids were small. The staff is exceptionally friendly, the location is phenomenal (fabulous restaurants and the 72d St. subway station all within 2 minutes' walk), the room was quiet and comfortable, and the price is extremely reasonable. Will stay at the Beacon whenever we visit the city from now on!

Location is perfect! Our one bedroom suite accommodation was perfect! Can't recommend this hotel enough. Stayed here for 3-nights at the beginning of travelling Coast to Coast USA. With the superb Fairways store across the road - marvellous store. So many things to see within walking distance from the hotel. If thinking of staying here, think no more!
