                  We had a very nice stay.Rooms very clean, design was great.

                  A little pricey.

                  The decor was elegant and clean. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived and had a beautiful view of the City. I loved the location--felt very safe and the staff were excellent. It reminded me of a small but classy Euro hotel.

                  The only thing I would have loved was better coffee int he am than that which was provided--but a cafe was nearby!

                  I liked to comfort level of my room and the small amenities that came as a part of the studio room including a range, microwave, tea kettle and wine opener in the room. The digital cable was something nice.

                  This is our favorite hotel in New York. We will never stay at another place. It has been renovated since our last stay and it looks great.

                  The walls are a bit thin so one can hear neighbors more than at some places, but the positive far outweigh this.

                  Kitchenettes are very convenient especially with Fairway Market across the street as well as gourmet food places nearby. Staff is very pleasant and helpful. Closeness to Lincoln Center if that is your purpose in NYC as it is ours. We are old timers at the Beacon.

                  The location is excellent, only two blocks from the subway. The room was very quiet eventhough the location on Broadway.

                  Some of the staff were very confused, but luckily their co-workers did an great job. We did queensize beds, eventhough we booked kingsize beds.

                  Kitchen provided makes a real difference. new york is expensive at the moment and being able to bring food in and have breakfast from Deli over the road is great. Also on very hot Easter break nice being near park and in quieter part of New York yet only a short subway ride to the centre

                  Very nice refurbished rooms, with living room and complete kitchenette. Fairway is a super supermarket accross the building. We had breakfast in our hotel every morning. Everything you can imagine is available accross the street. Very well situated, only two minutes from the subway and 1 express stop away from time square. Very nice neighbourhood. We will definetely choose the Beacon again whenever we visit New York. Truly is the hidden gem of the Upper West side.

                  Perfect Location! Great neighborhood; close to subway; close to Central Park and Lincoln Center; quiet; classy; very comfortable bed; air conditioning worked well; attentive,responsive staff.

                  Bathroom too small. I kept bumping into the door because the towel hook on the back of the door kept it from opening all the way.... difficult to dry my hair and put on make-up.

                  We liked the fact that it had a kitchenette, the staff, the cleanliness, the size of the rooms, the views from the room (we were at the 23rd floor), the location (just one stop from Times Square with the express metro) and the nearest stop is less than 200 meters from the hotel (72nd St.), it has a market right in front of the hotel (very useful if your room has a kitchenette), etc.

                  Wi-Fi was not free and you had to pay almost 10 dolars for 24 hours... But you could not split the 24 hours in two days or more.

                  The staff was courteous and helpful. They provided whatever we needed. It was quiet, very clean, modern, and pleasant.
