I love this hotel. In the center of the upper Weest Side. My favorite place to be in New York. All the amenities surround you that you could ever want. The coffee shop next door is the best. A little pricey but that's New York. Also very safe. Next to subways and buses. II love this hotel. I wish that... More

We've stayed at the beacon many times and it's always good. It's not fancy but very clean, roomy and friendly staff. The location is so good, near subway, and across from Fairway Market and their wonderful cafe. Neighborhood is a great way to visit NYC!

The hotel was in a great location for us as we went up to Yankee Stadium on the D line and walked to the Museum of Natural History. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The hotel doesn't offer any breakfast so right next door is a great place called Viand Cafe. Have to say though the three elevators... More

We stayed in a double room which had 2 double beds. The room was large and the kitchenette an added bonus. We really made use of this as there is a market across the road selling all you could possibly need. Be warned though the market is pretty expensive!!! There is a cafe next door(viandi) which we had noted came... More

Having stayed in many hotels in New York over the years, this was the first time at the Hotel Beacon. The location is a little far north for many of the attractions of NYC, being approximately 30 minutes north of Time Square (walking). That said its proximity to Central Park made it a good base for us, with many of... More

This Hotel is always a favourite of my family and friends. Email ahead and make sure you request the highest possible floor facing Amsterdam Avenue. I'm always floor twenty or above if I can help it. The views of the two blocks between you and Central Park are sublime, the twin towers of the San Remo just sparkle. Don't panic... More

I did quite a lot of research on hotels in New York mostly due to the fact that this was a first time trip to the city. I compared reviews on MANY sites, explored pricing and location (s) and arrived at Hotel Beacon being the BEST choice. My research paid off in so many ways. The staff is so friendly... More

We stayed at the Beacon for 4 nights and felt at home. What a great place to discover Manhattan from. We used either cabs or buses (Public Transport) to go somewhere and also did activities by foto (Central Park). Room was spacious, clean and with kitchenette!

The Hotel Beacon offers a great location for your stay in NYC. Located just 3 blocks west of Central Park, a 2 minute walk to the subway station for the 1-2-3 trains and less than a 10 minute walk to the B-C train station so you can access many parts of Manhattan with ease. Lots of nice restaurants and bars... More

Friendly staff; great location on Upper West Side--close to Central Park, restaurants, shopping. Good size rooms; good rates compared to other hotels in NYC. I stayed recently and had the quietest room I've ever had on the 23rd floor. The views were amazing.

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.
