Your own small kitchen, grocery stores at the opposite of the street, walking distance from Central Park, Guggenheim and Metro station. We liked the view from the 25th floor over the Hudson, the only minor was the 'noise' from the rooftop, probably from the utility room.

What a great location for the Upper West Side! Close to Central Park and close to many restaurants and shopping in the area. Kitchenette was well-equipped to make a quick snack or breakfast with Fairway market right across the street. Would definitely stay here again.

We had a large group so we took several rooms of different configurations. We got a good price through booking.com. The hotel rates are much higher. The rooms are well maintained, clean and have good amenities. Good heating on a cold winter day. Decent bathroom. There was a small kitchenette, cutlery, and a sofa in the hall that became a...

Reviewers have raved about this hotel - I thought it was a good place to stay but not as exceptional as I had expected. Rooms are kept in Art Deco but are also a bit outdated. The hairdryer, for instance, was for a flea market, not a hotel, and certainly not given the freezing cold outside. Otherwise, very friendly staff... More

Upon arrival the reception is quite small, however the staff are very friendly. Had us wondering if the rooms are small. Had a one bedroom suite with kitchenette. Bedroom had king size bed, large sitting room with couch, chairs, heaps of storage, with facilities to cook if you wished. Would be suited for long or short stays. Facilities close by... More

My husband and two adult children surprised me with a week's trip to New York City over the Christmas period to celebrate a significant(!) birthday and they chose the Hotel Beacon as they knew I had always wanted to stay on the Upper West Side rather than in Midtown like my previous visits. It was a perfect choice from the... More

We love this hotel. We have stayed twice, each ten night stays. The location on Upper West is quiet, yet close enough to Downtown, only a few stops on the subway. We love the kitchenette and food market across the road which meant we did not have to eat out every meal. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. We... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
