'The Jewel of the Upper West Side'

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 21, 2009

I came to New York in 2004 on a college trip and we stayed at the Hotel Beacon on the Upper West Side for 5 nights.

The rooms we stayed in had two double beds as well as a sofa bed, so were quite spacious to sleep between 5 and 6 people. There was also a small kitchen area.

The hotel is a short walk from Central Park but to get to the main parts of the city you're best off taking a cab, or as we did - the subway. Subway 72 is not far from the hotel and was apparently in one of the Die Hard films!

Unique Quality: I don't remember much about the amenities and characteristics of this hotel as it was a while ago and I didn't book it but I'd happily stay here again if I wasn't going to stay in the centre of all the action downtown.

See web link for more up to date info.

Directions: Short walk from 72nd station

Value for money accomodations. Check out the supermarket across the street for fresh food with a great deli next door. Close to subway (5min walk max) and central park (15mins max) Friendly staff. Would definately visit again.

What, a room with room in NYC?

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 29, 2004

Ok, this is for someone who needs a week or two in NYC and will be travelling around.

FIrst off, this is in a residential area of NYC. Safe place between Central Park and Riverside park.

No swiming pool, no rofftop bar, no massive lobby.

What there is: Big rooms with kitchenettes and King size beds. Good water pressure.

This is a good home base to travel the city at your own pace. Even if you get burnt out and need a night in the room, you won't feel like you are trapped.

The area is great to wander around in. The restaurants are all pretty impressive around here.

Unique Quality: Everything within walking distance is cool. Central Park, Riverside park, the riverwalk.

And the food is kicking and not tourist geared.

A bit farther from the real tourist stuff, but that is not a bad thing..... And you have to travel to all of them anyways....

Directions: Upper west side. One stop on the express train north from Times Square.....

Highly Rated Hotel in Great Neighborhood

by written on May 12, 2004

I haven't seen their rooms, but the hotel gets consistently good reviews on tripadvisor.com. I think the Upper West Side is the best location in the city. Very convenient to public transportation, and close to Central Park and all that great shopping along Broadway, Columbus and Amsterdam. The quintessential "New York" neighborhood.

Nice Location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 28, 2004

I stayed at $180 on March 2004 at a one-bedroom suite. There were one king bed and a queen size sofa bed in a living room. A kitchen was equipped. We stayed with 3 friends, but maximum would be 5, if you arrange a rollaway at $15.

Above all we liked the calm atmosphere around the hotel. It was as if we had lived in NYC, not had a trip! Nice cozy restaurants and cafes we could find.

Unique Quality: As we stayed at the 5th floor with broadway view, we could not have any park view, but you may be able to ask in advance. We were satisfied with the broadway view, though. Not bad with viewing the Fairway (24hrs grocery store facing the hotel.) and the ballet studio at the 2nd floor.

Directions: Few minutes walk from 72nd sta. fFive minutes from 79st sta.
In front of the Ansonia, a condominium apartment building.
