Really enjoyed our recent stay at Hotel Beacon. This hotel is in a great location and our room had a king size bed, kitchenette and bathroom. Hotel staff were very helpful and we would definitely stay here again.

Excellent (large for New York) rooms with kitchenettes in a welcoming neighborhood with express trains to theater district and sporting events! Thanks to a friend's recommendation, we were a short walk from Central Park and quick rides to theater and the US Open. We plan to always stay here!

The Hotel Beacon is a basic hotel in a wonderful convenient position to the attractions of New York. It's within easy walking distance to Central Park and several major art museums. You can also get to the Broadway theatre district quickly via the subway. Although there have been attempts to renovate this hotel, there were a number of shortcomings such... More

Having just finished a 21 day organised tour, it was such a nice surprise when my wife and I arrived at the Hotel Beacon. The staff were excellent and the room was large with a king sized bed, small kitchenette, closet, safe and plenty of space to walk around. It even had a desk so that I could write this... More

Rooms are large and worth the money. Wi-Fi was strong and the service friendly. The only weak spot is room maintenance with a noisy refregirator and air-condition. The hotel location is great, close to museums restaurants and the subway,

A nice hotel in a very quiet neighbourhood. The beds are fully supportive, the bathrooms small but adequate and the maintenance of rooms is excellent. Two brilliant food places opposite, Fairways and Citrella, provide all the food you could want- try the meatballs from Citrella or the chicken you can see spinning in the window or go upstairs for tons...

First of all, I think is a highly recommended hotel, but we were also very surprised that the room wasn't spotless (at our arrival, we found hairs in the bed and bathroom, and a paper on the floor). Moreover, the bathroom is quite outdated and not entirely comfortable, and part of the kitchen was in disrepair, with broken and unpainted... More

Having stayed at the hotel for five nights we found it very central to everything, Central Park just down the road, subway a short walk and a supermarket just opposite the hotel. Everyone was friendly and the room were great, clean (could have more room to move but then we weren't in room that much my way!). Highly recommended:)

Hotel Beacon offers a quiet room with a small kitchen in a central location. The kitchen comes in handy after shopping at Fairway, which is right across the street, or at Zabar's just up Broadway. Plenty of great restaurants and a short walk to Central Park. The subway is 2 short blocks away or get on a bus at the... More

My wife and I stayed at the Beacon for 4 nights, our room was on the 8th floor, it was quiet, comfortable and well appointed. We had a king bed and a small kitchenette.

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.
