We were SO thrilled with our stay that we have come back two more times. Lovely hotel with boutique flavor, friendly staff and 5 star accomodations. Our favorite guy at the front desk was Henry who drew us maps and pointed us in the right direction for the sights of NY. The views from our rooms (on floors 20 and 25) were the best and included Central Park. Museums and restaurants were all within walking distance. Subway 72 was a block away and the Fairmont across the street was awesome for supplying our kitchen. There is NO better deal in NY - oh, we have looked!! Believe Trip Advisor on this one and enjoy the upper west side on your visit to NY. Greenflea. Central Park, Ocean Grill, Fatty Crab, famous Shake Shack and the best museums are a walk away. Thank you Henry for the superb care and caring service. We will be back again!

My adult daughter and I stayed four nights at the Hotel Beacon on the upper west side of Manahattan in Sept. 2009. Can't say enough about the courtesy, professionalism, and attentiveness of the staff. Everyone we encountered, from the young man who greeted us at the curb on our arrival, to the front desk attendant, to the concierge, to the housekeeping staff--everyone was friendly, helpful, and just plain nice. We've been to NYC before (my daughter stayed at the Beacon several years ago and was particularly impressed with its total renovation), and we've always had wonderful experiences. The Beacon is a standout because of the great staff and the terrific location. We really enjoyed staying in a "neighborhood" (the upper West side) instead of in a "tourist" area. It was fun to walk around and find a little coffee shop, watching regular people going about their daily lives. It was so easy to hop on the subway and get wherever we wanted to go in minutes. AND, it's a couple of blocks from Central Park!! What could be better? The Beacon is especially good for families b/c the rooms are quite spacious (by NYC standards) and each has its own kitchenette. My daughter and I enjoyed the kitchenette as well, for morning coffee or late night dessert. All in all, this is a great place to stay in NYC--and the price can't be beat. P.S. There are tons of great restaurants in the area. Although the hotel does not have its own restaurant, there is a cafe next door--Viand, I think is the name--that is friendly, has good food, and is very reasonable. Great for breakfast and for families.

I would normally have given this hotel five stars but it was just edged by another in New York I stayed at in August. The Beacon has got to be near the top of the list for anyone wanting to stay on the Upper West Side. So close to so many great attractions, and the Fairway across the road is perfect if you get a room like we did with a kitchenette. Roomy and perfect for families, with excellent staff.

We've stayed at the Beacon on three occasions, and we'll keep coming back. It has large, spacious, well maintained rooms with kitchenettes - at a great price. The location is perfect - about a thirty minute walk from Times Square, and near restaurants, shopping and the theatre.

We had a 2 bedroom Suite at the Beacon from September 4th to 14th and all I can say is wow!

Firstly the price was fantastic, so much cheaper than equivalent but lesser quality hotels in the city

Check-in was a breeze, we were on our way to room 906 in less that 5 minutes

The room was HUGE, 2 bedrooms (2 doubles in 1 and a king in the other), 2 bathrooms (1 with and 1 without a bathtub), a living room area with pull out sofa bed (actually fairly comfortable) and a full kitchen

At nights the was very little outside noise meaning a good nights sleep was possible (rare in New York I know)

Any problems we had with the room (we had a couple of tiny ones) were sorted almost instantly and the maid left the rooms spotless everyday

We had already decided to cancel plans for a trip to Australia next year to return to New York (for the 7th time) and we will be definitely stayin at the Beacon again

In fact we stopped just short of booking before we left

In summary, great hotel, great staff, (really) great location

Many thanks and see you in May

Matthew
