Our family had a very enjoyable stay at the Hotel Beacon for two weeks in Nov 19. From the moment we arrived, the helpfulness and friendliness of all the staff was apparent, and this continued throughout our stay. We selected a suite with a lounge and kitchenette, so that we could all relax comfortably and also save money on eating out every day - few hotels in Manhattan offer cooking facilities, and with the very well-stocked supermarket across the road, mealtimes were hassle-free. We also enjoyed the Beacon Bar and using the hotel gym. The location on Broadway is excellent with hundreds of restaurants, shops and cafes close-by, one of the main subway lines a three minute walk away and Central Park a ten minute walk. We would highly recommend the Beacon to families, and anyone who values location, quality of hotel, amenities and friendly staff. When we return to New York, Hotel Beacon will definitely be our choice for accommodation. Read less

Love this hotel, booked as it has a kitchenette so we could make our own breakfast. Staff super lovely, (all of them), housekeeping kept the place spotless, the rooms are beautifully decorated and the bed was huge. Located just a stones throw from 72nd subway, easy access to everywhere. Supermarket across the road, sells everything you could need.… Read more

The hotel was clean and newly remodeled. Staff were extremely helpful and always smiling! The location was within a short walking distance to the subway and Central Park. The grocery store across the street was convenient as well :)

Hotel Beacon provided the most wonderful location for our trip to New York. The hotel is clean, warm and extremely comforable. The rooms are large and facilities are good. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. I couldn't recoment this hotel enough.

The rooms are somewhat dated and a little worn here and there, not a lot of power sockets in the right places, antiquated lighting. However everything is spotlessly clean, and everything works. Staff are very helpful and pleasant. In and out is easy and quick (no huge lobbies to traipse through).
