You will feel like you’ve really made it to New York once you reach Hotel Beacon. With views overlooking Central Park, Hudson River and Midtown Manhattan, there’s no better base for New York City than at this affordable and hip boutique hotel on the Upper West Side. Upper West Side is home to many a famous person, from David Bowie to Bono and Tina Fey to Tiger Woods, so keep your celebrity-spotting wits about you from the moment you leave your room!
We love Hotel Beacon because the rooms are unlike the cramped rooms typically found in the area, instead spacious with a funky character and sweet amenities. The 260 rooms and suites each feature a marbled bathroom, free wifi, living room with sofa, kitchenette with microwave and tea and coffee facilities.
In addition to affordable, spacious rooms and a great location, Hotel Beacon has Beacon Bar, a stylish and sophisticated bar that serves a variety of drinks and a light food menu. Beacon Bar is a great place to grab a coffee or a beer on your way to one of the area’s many fine restaurants and clubs as well as nearby attractions including Columbia University, Central Park, Beacon Theatre, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum and the Theatre District.
Located in one of the most accessible areas of New York, Beacon Hotel connects you with the rest of the city thanks to the convenient subway and taxis services. It is a 40-minute taxi ride or just over an hour on public transport from JFK Airport in Queens to Beacon Hotel on the Upper West Side.
