We stayed here as part of a birthday weekend. Whenever I visit NYC with the family, our favourite area is the upper west side and our favorite is the Beacon.
Nothing bad to say other than our hallway smelled a bit smoky. Thankfully that smell did not carry into our 1 bedroom suite. The room was perfect for 4 of us and the kitchenette came in handy for pre-dinner drinks with our other friends who were staying at the Beacon (12 in all). I recommend the liqour store beside the hotel for champagne and the Fairway market across the street for fresh OJ!!
When staying here, we truly felt like at home. The room was clean and quiet and very comfortable and well maintained. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. I would love to be one of the permanent residents of this lovely place.
Great shopping nearby, Cafe Viand next door for breakfast, or if you wanted to get really creative Citarella gourmet food shop across the street. Of course, we also ate at Grays Papaya which is a stone's throw to the south.
Highly, highly, highly recommend!!More
