The Beekman

Financial District, New York

The hotel

Built in the same decade as the Brooklyn Bridge, The Beekman had stiff competition when it came to architectural neighbours – but its glamour and grace granted it kudos with the building buffs of the 19th century – and today. This skyscraper’s kept its drama with its marble entrance, Persian rug-slung lobby, and Victorian balustrade-draped atrium, which stretches nine storeys skyward before being capped with a glass pyramid. It’s not just opulent in design though, with its ‘nothing’s-too-much-trouble’ service and dining scene mirroring its old-world splendour and new-world luxury. Two of Manhattan’s finest names are behind The Beekman’s restaurants: Tom Colicchio reinterprets old and new classics at Temple Court, while Keith McNally recreates French brasserie elegance at Augustine. Or you could join the socialites (and sometimes celebs) at The Alley Cat for cocktails and Japanese Izakaya comfort food.

Stayed with Amex FHR for business. The location is great and walkable. The room is fine - small but cute, historic.

Stayed with Amex FHR for business. The location is great and walkable. The room is fine - small but cute, historic. The restaurant is in the middle of the open hotel, so naturally you are drawn to go down for a drink or some food. The restaurant/bar staff really missed the mark in terms of attitude, attentiveness, and general ability to accommodate. We went Saturday and Sunday and finally were able to get a seat on Sunday but no one stopped by the table in 20 mins. I flagged down a waiter, who wouldn’t help me, so I left. On the flip side, from the same restaurant / bar, you can get food and drinks (cocktails from the bar, even) to your room very quickly and reliably. Not sure what’s going on there, but kudos to the room service staff. They were quick, reliable, and upbeat. Lacking the general staff friendless and attentiveness of similar class hotels like Ritz, St Regis, Four Seasons. Customer needs aren’t met reactively, let alone proactively. Read less

Bad attitudes and a general lack of respect for people staying in hotel. Rooms above the bar/restaurant are very noisy late into the night. The construction in surrounding buildings is all day long with jack hammering.

I think I may have found my favorite hotel in NYC. The most comfortable bed, a view of the Brooklyn bridge, clean linens and bathrooms, great amenities. Breakfast is amazing. A bit of noisy due to construction which isn’t the hotels fault. Friendly staff and great service. So close to the Brooklyn bridge, I went for a mini run for four days. So… Read more

So convenient with nearby subway stations. But the best part is the history of the building… takes you back to the 1800s. Will be back! Read less

The building is gorgeous, the rooms are clean and cleverly decorated, beds are incredibly comfortable, and the every member of the staff goes above and beyond to make your stay extra special. We have been here many times, and we will keep coming back!

Small dark rooms No business Center - we were told we could sit in the lobby No mid day food service No longer a five star hotel! Pre Covid it was very good but has not returned to its previous level.
