Trip Report Brief report on Beacon Hotel, NYC

Jump to last reply

I spent three nights at The Beacon Hotel, with four girlfriends, in a two bedroom/two bath apartment-style suite with a kitchen, eating area and living room. We were extremely pleased with this hotel.

All of us are fairly seasoned travelers, and all have been to NYC a few times, but none of us had heard of the Beacon until I found it on-line, with the help of fodorites.

It is in an awesome location on the upper west side: full market across the street, subway station a block or so away, lots of cafes and shops nearby, quick walk to Central Park.

Service at the Beacon is excellent. The hotel is stylish, sparkling clean, and recently renovated. Price for our suite was just $525/night-- a good value my friends could not believe.

The Beacon Theater is next door, which hosts the Tony Award ceremony next weekend, and had a tribute to Wavy Gravy last weekend-- which probably makes this neighborhood very lively at times. It was relatively quiet this weekend, and perfect for our getaway. (There is not a restaurant within the hotel, so no room service, but plenty of options in the immediate block for food.)

We all highly recommend The Beacon Hotel, at 75th and Broadway. If you can get a room here, grab it!
