New York City’s Hotel Beacon, conveniently located on the fashionable Upper West Side at Broadway & West 75th Street, was one of the attractions featured at the recent Visit USA promotion held in Sydney for the travel industry.

It was great to catch up again with Thomas Travers, the Hotel Beacon’s General Manager, who flew out to Australia for this annual event.

A couple of months ago I had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Beacon and can highly recommend it to anyone who wants to experience living like a true New Yorker.

Central Park is a five minute walk away past streets lined with brownstones and trendy restaurants and diners.  Opposite the hotel, occupying the whole block, was one of the largest supermarkets I have ever seen, just great to pop over and buy a few items to bring back to my suite and cook my own dinner.  Most of the Beacon’s rooms have a fully fitted out kitchen, ideal for those who want a relaxing evening after a full day of sightseeing.  Sandra T.
