Beacon is a town undergoing a rebirth thanks to the a creative bunch of people moving in from Brooklyn and other hipster spots in NYC. The Dia Beacon Museum is a worthy draw for contemporary art lovers and the town is filling up with cool bars, restaurants and other artisanal delights.
The Beacon Hotel is above a very cool bar and restaurant which may be worth a visit. But the hotel is owned by folks who are shortsighted and have no idea what the term “hospitality” means. Our air conditioning was broken with the fan stuck on high. Too loud to sleep through we decided to cancel the second night. Even though a staff member admitted they were waiting for a part to fix the problem, the owners denied a refund claiming, there is nothing wrong with the air conditioning.
Thankfully there are other options in Beacon. Visit the town but skip the eponymously named Hotel. More
