Best for Value for money - Expert review of Hotel Beacon

An affordable New York City hotel that's a secret favorite for many travelers.

In New York City, small boutique hotels abound. Some have famous names and others are hidden gems that are only familiar to in-the-know travelers. The Hotel Beacon is of the latter variety. A service-oriented hotel with spacious rooms that caters to savvy travelers who don't want a big name or a hot location. This is one of those places I recommend to friends coming into town. It's close enough to the action but far enough away to be an oasis of calm.

Location: 

On a tree-lined street on the Upper West Side. The location is ideal if you want a relaxing New York getaway but you're still close to subway lines and nice restaurants as well as the park.

Bedrooms: 

For a service-oriented hotel, the Hotel Beacon is quite large with 260 rooms and suites. Green and muted yellows soothed me to sleep. King rooms are the smallest category but are still spacious with colorful beds, leather headboards, several comfortable chairs, a desk, ottoman and small kitchenette. Double rooms are slightly larger. Suites are elegantly appointed and even more spacious with a sofabed, kitchenette, and marble bath with Gilchrist & Soames products. Families will love the two-bedroom suites, which are some the most spacious and affordable in the city.

Public areas: 

The lobby features dark leather and wood and is inviting to say the least. 

Eating and drinking: 

The hotel doesn't have an onsite restaurant or bar, which poses a problem on cold winter days. Nevertheless, you can always grab some food from a nearby restaurant to take back to your room. After all, it does have a working kitchen. 

Leisure facilities: 

The hotel doesn't have a fitness center or spa.

Service: 

Service is friendly but when high season comes around, you may have to wait to get noticed.
