Great upper west side location. Deluxe twin room on level 19 was quiet with very little external noise. Kitchen was useful but unfortunately food preparation areas was limited in this room choice. Still great to prepare cereal or toast. Being close to the 72nd Subway was also excellent. Great supermarket across the road & the beautiful Levain Bakery is around the corner.

Fifth trip to New York first to The Beacon

Pros: Rooms with kitchenette, very clean, and not many hotels deliver a newspaper to your door every day.
Cons: the air conditioning a little on the noisy side
Location: As mentioned just walk outside and you have a bus stop steps away and of course the underground a block away to get you around Manhatten
Stayed previously in the area the great location for restaurants and Delis and you have The Beacon Theatre right next door. Just a short stroll to Central Park and one of the best features the bus M104 right outside on Broadway to run you downtown to Times Square or uptown for that matter

Location to Broadway

Great hotel with helpful staff. Big rooms so you can unload your cases. For what you pay for you'd expect no moving shower heads in walls or moving toilet seats. A little management on maintenance wouldn't go astray. No breakfast or meals here however shops are all round so no dramas for food in or out of your room.

Great spot on Broadway NYC

Pros: Comfortable Great location
Cons: Slightly quieter air conditioner!
Location: Central Park Strawberry Fields Natural History Museum
The Hotel Beacon is located in a great part of New York on Broadway. It is close to Central Park, the Natural History Museum and, for any John Lennon fans, close to the Strawberry Fields memorial in his memory. We saw two great shows on Broadway, including the Beach Boys in the Beacon Theatre next door.
