“Meh”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

So imagine a W hotel or may like the Clift in San Francisco. Modern interior - and perched on the Falls. Very receptive staff too. Problem is partially in where it is, problem too mostly is the cost. We spent for one room one night something like $460. The room faced an abandoned building - no where near the falls - so imagine looking out on the street of an abandoned mill town. Yep. Also imagine - cheap scratchy sheets, a bathroom where there is not a door to the toilet area. Oh and a shower where you are on full exhibit to the bedroom.
Now as a frequent stayer at Schrager's hotel - which is this trying to ape - I would say - I know Schrager and this is definitely not the Hudson or a W hotel. It is not executed as well - it is as if they were on too strict a budget.
This should be a $250 a night get away - max. The locale, (location, location, location) is not good. The bar overlooking the falls is spectacular actually... as is the surrounding area is... but the immediate part of town is well - abandoned warehouses.
Cool not sophisticated.
- a tough grader.

Room Tip: Dont' face the street - the falls view would be the only one to choose - if there are rooms that...

They got it right! we were traveling to Dia:Beacon and came across a review for the new Roundhouse at Beacon Falls. The owners and operators have great vision and it was realized in this beautiful place. The situation of the Roundhouse by the falls is simply stunning. The management could not have been any more helpful or friendly. We had the true "room with a "view" overlooking the falls and it was breathtaking. Our dinner experience made for an ideal celebration for our wedding anniversary. Excellent chef. Happy: very. Returning: frequently we hope.

We spent an art weekend in Beacon and loved our stay at the new Roundhouse at Beacon Falls hotel. The small hotel is in a converted lawnmower factory on top of the falls. The hotel's design pays homage to its industrial past with oversized rolling bathroom doors and other touches, while remaining cool and sophisticated. The restaurant, Swift, is beautiful and delicious, and the service was excellent. The separate event building looks like a great place for weddings. A second hotel building with more rooms and a spa is under construction. Highly recommended!
