I've been here two times and love everything about the Beacon. It feels like a true NYC hotel, with its old elevators, some residents and their dogs, and a location that can't be beat.
The fully equipped kitchen is a bonus and their recent renovations are tasteful, on par with the latest look in small luxury hotels.
My only minor complaint is they haven't taken the extra step of upgrading bed linens, still maintaining the old blanket-style coverings and lower grade pillows/sheets.
I feel like a true New Yorker instead of a visitor when I stay here - very comfortable.
Even though we are on a busy section of Broadway the windows and doors provide excellent sound insulation.
Try the great breakfast at Viand Cafe next to the hotel, fresh eggs, OJ, HOT coffee, homefries, and toast for less than $6.
Zabar's is 5-6 blocks north and Fairway supermarket is across the street, both outstanding places to purchase goodies to bring back to the hotel.
Beacon is within walking distance of top shopping and restaurants, and a 2 min walk from the restored 72nd street subway stop, which connects you anywhere in NYC.
