Where History Is Forever Starting Now

With its 2022 re-opening, the Beacon Grand celebrates the rich history of this iconic hotel with a new name dedicated to all explorers and history makers. Where once Sir Francis Drake took center stage, now we pay homage to all those who made The City, and this hotel, so great. We renew focus on the progress and possibility that has always lured people of all kinds to this social circle on Union Square, where history is forever starting now.
