We had stayed in a Times Square hotel on a previous visit to N.Y.C ,but the location and overall ambience of the Beacon is, in my opinion, far superior . Only a couple of minutes walk to the subway , across the road from a fantastic market / store , numerous restaurants , bars and shops nearby and right in the middle of the upper west side , a "real people " neighbourhood of Manhattan. Light years away from some other overly touristy areas , this was a wonderful start to this year's American adventure. Staff were pleasant and helpful, the restaurant / diner attached was fairly priced and served good food . The suite was well equipped and kept spotlessly clean . Only slight downside was the air conditioning which really struggled to make any impression during a very hot spell of weather. We would have no hesitation in staying here again if / when we re-visit Manhattan and would recommend it to any friend who was looking for somewhere to stay.
