This former industrial building has been painstakingly transformed into an upscale hotel experience that’s high on quality and style. Rooms and public spaces are dripping in local arts and crafts from paintings to furniture to floors; natural tones lend the property a timeless quality.
Bed & Bath
Rooms are comfortable but short on personal touches. You’ll find huge beds and glass-walled, walk-in showers. Beds are low slung but ultra-comfy, and the sound of water rushing over the falls will lull most guests to sleep. Lots of original features make for a lovely experience and most rooms are big on light and water views.
The in-house Swift restaurant is still finding its feet but already winning praise. Having dinner there is worth it for the desserts, which are excellent, as is the range of the wine list. In summer months, the Roundhouse also has the Patio, offering more casual fare accompanied by postcard-perfect waterfall views. The lounge bar is snug and built for the cooler months, and you would be forgiven for thinking you had just stepped off the slopes in Aspen. In addition, a spa is in the works for 2015.
In the Area
Beacon is fast becoming a cultural highlight of New York state. The hard work of Dia, about a 15-minute walk down Main Street, has brought galleries and artists, as well as quality dining and drinking, into town. No trip to Beacon is complete without a visit to the eponymous Dia art museum, with its fine collection of contemporary art, and you could do a lot worse than following it up with a hop over the bridge to see the sculptures at Storm King, a short 20-minute drive away. When the sun sets, the newer, softer belly of Beacon is exposed and you should make your way to Hop, a classic pub that is barely a stumble into town.
How to Get There
Came up from Brooklyn, paid more for beers here with no selection than I pay around the corner at the actual brewery that the beers on the menu were from. Oh and I had to awkwardly stand because there weren't seats and couldn't hear my friends. Not worth it.
Reserved a table for 2 overlooking the falls. Beautiful setting. Our table was ready upon arrival after a warm reception. The menu was limited but offered a variety of choices. Service was just adequate. Overall, our experience was quite good.
Great place to stay in Beacon. Fabulous location walk to everything. Very nice breafast while beautiful view of the falls. Do not miss the bar, lively fun spot. This hotel is more about minimalism and very nice beds.
