Strong Links to the Irish Travel Trade
Hotel Beacon has been linked to the Irish travel trade for decades with many an agent spending a few nights in this ideally located hotel. The deep relationship was developed by the former general manager, Tom Travers, during his 30+ years at the hotel. While Tom retired in 2020, he still shows his face in the promotional video highlighting the unique aspects of this 3-star hotel.
Named for its original airway beacon located on the roof of the hotel, Hotel Beacon dates back to the beaux-arts style in 1928. Located at the corner of Broadway and W 75th, Hotel Beacon is one of the few remaining residential hotels. Furthermore, it’s also one of the few places in Manhattan where you can find spacious rooms and numerous two-bedroom suites. In addition, rooms come furnished with fully-equipped kitchenettes allowing guests to live like a real New Yorker. Plus you can enjoy the plethora of family-owned grocery stores and bustling delis that are so emblematic of the Upper West Side. It’s also worth remembering this place has no service fees.
