The Beekman

Financial District, New York

Virgin rating

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.

Lovely old world styled hotel. Top notch service. Look for Michelle at breakfast. She is so pleasant and attentive. Lower floor outside rooms noisy at dawn with NYC traffic. Bar extremely crowded in evening.

From the moment I checked in to the online checkout, everything was a pleasure. The staff warm, helpful and polite. Amenities were lovely - room classic old school and exceptionally clean. The location was central to all that lower Manhattan has to offer.

After dreaming about returning to this hotel during the entirety of the pandemic, the long-awaited business trip back to NY was unfortunately completely let down by this hotel experience. The amenities were non-existent (turn down happened once out of five nights), there was no hot water for two days, what was promised as an apology for the lack of hot water was never delivered, and the breakfasts were inconsistent at best, and completely raw (omelet) at worst. From what was truly a beautiful hotel experience pre-pandemic, this hotel is sadly nothing like it was. I can only hope this feedback creates some momentum to raise the bar once again. Read less

-hotel is very old and in a dodgy side street. View from my room was to a construction site with permanent noise from workers. Bathroom was old and shower didn't get warm for ages and have only very little water. Bathtub was way too small for a normal sized person and only filled up less than half. I had to complain fiercely to get any free water… Read more
-hotel is very old and in a dodgy side street. View from my room was to a construction site with permanent noise from workers. Bathroom was old and shower didn't get warm for ages and have only very little water. Bathtub was way too small for a normal sized person and only filled up less than half. I had to complain fiercely to get any free water at all, since everything inside the room is extra. R On positive side, the hotel was clean and the room service did an okay job. I would not stay here again though as the hotel is way too expensive for what you are getting vs other hotels. Read less
