Hotel Beacon

Upper West Side, New York

Virgin rating

The hotel

In these over-sized rooms and apartments, feel like a New Yorker in this desirable Upper West Side location. Rooms are larger than in the centre of Manhattan, and your kitchenette means you can fix yourself some breakfast. The famous Lincoln Center is a short walk, together with Central Park, American Museum of Natural History and Rose Center for Earth and Space, and a clutch of off-Broadway theatres.

This is a very nice hotel in an excellent Upper West Side location, convenient to the Park, shopping, and, with a 15 minute walk, Lincoln Center. We splurged on a suite, and it was really lovely: very spacious, with two big rooms and a small but functional kitchenette.

This is a very nice hotel in an excellent Upper West Side location, convenient to the Park, shopping, and, with a 15 minute walk, Lincoln Center. We splurged on a suite, and it was really lovely: very spacious, with two big rooms and a small but functional kitchenette. You can pop across the street to a couple of terrific grocery stores, or up to Zabar's and bring back a feast. At the least, you can save money on breakfast. We really enjoyed staying here. It was perfectly quiet, and clean. We had sticker shock after the fact: it was $1300 for two nights! But that was mostly because of our choice of room (which also had a lovely view). I would gladly stay here again. Read less

While the hotel room itself was fairly basic (as anticipated), the price was very good, and the staff at the Hotel Beacon was truly wonderful! The location is great: it is nice to have such a large market right across the street; the park is a quick walk away.

After arriving late evening at a near by LaQuinta only to find our reserved room was not available we needed to find last minute accommodations. Hotel Beacon was able to offer us a lovely King room with a kitchen for nearly the same price as the King executive room at La Quinta. Our room at Hotel Beacon was lovely!

The staff was kind and cheerful. The entire hotel seemed well taken care of and was very clean. There is a market across the street. Many wonderful restaurants are within easy walking distance. We will stay at Hotel Beacon next time we are in New York. Read less

If you want the true NY experience, Hotel Beacon is a must! Staying here is feels just like living in your own apartment. I lived in NYC years ago and this is the closest I've ever come to capturing that hometown feeling. It's perfectly located - the best food stores, restaurants, Lincoln Center, Central Park, the subway. I don't want to leave!!
