This is the place i will always stay when i'm in ny!
The upper west side, great diner next door for breakfast, great wine store on the other side, fairways market across the street - what more could you want? so enough said about the location...the rooms at the beacon are immaculate and very nice including fridge, microwave, sink and 2-burner stove top. the staff, from the mgmt. to the bellman and housekeeping are extremely nice and helpful in a very proactive fashion. have been to ny several times and this is the best place for the money, by a huge margin, that i have ever stayed. i understand now why it is ranked so high among the hundreds of hotels in ny, many with much higher price tags. thank you beacon hotel!
