Our family of 2 adults and 2 teenaged children stayed 4 nights in a one bedroom suite on 22nd floor. The suite was fab for us. It was on the corner of the hotel looking down Broadway towards midtown with great views. There is a small kitchenette and a great Fairways market across the road where we bought breakfast and...

I stayed at Hotel Beacon because of its proximity to the Beacon Theatre. My parents, husband, and I stayed in one of the suites with one bedroom and a living room with a pullout bed.

We've often stayed at the Lucerne but they were booked our most recent trip (February 2013) - this was our first stay at the Beacon and we were very happy with the hotel and location.

When making the reservation and upon check-in, I explained that our last experience was great with exception of all of the construction noise. I specifically asked to be placed away from any areas that were undergoing renovations. The room was great when we first checked in, but our refrigerator didn't work. We had tickets for a show that night and... More

I love this property! As a returning guest, the great staff greet me at the front like a friend, and the house-keeping service seems to know I tear through towels and want decaf coffee in my kitchen!

We stayed here mid last year and found the hotel to be a great base to explore NYC. It is about 2 blocks from the underground trains and an easy ride into Time Square.

For us, this was a thumbs-up: a good-size room with good in-room amenities at a good price for NYC. But the hotel itself is lacking a lot of the amenities of a larger hotel, and it isn't in a great location for most tourists. Whether the Hotel Beacon will make sense for you depends on what you want/need. PROS: -... More

Neighbourhood 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 theatre 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.
