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.

The Beekman is the epitome of a classy, luxurious New York hotel. It feels old, yet new. It has charm. It has thoughtful design. It was cold while there, so we ordered some fruit for breakfast and somehow it was so tasty and fresh.

The Beekman is the epitome of a classy, luxurious New York hotel. It feels old, yet new. It has charm. It has thoughtful design. It was cold while there, so we ordered some fruit for breakfast and somehow it was so tasty and fresh. The Lobby Bar has a library or 1940's cocktail bar feel, but with updated furniture and design elements. The Beekman doesn't try to be something that it is not. It is luxurious, it is a tiny bit gaudy, and utterly enjoyable. Service was fantastic, and the night club in the basement has the drink prices you would expect of a Manhattan club, but a really good option especially if you don't want to go outside. Great Job Thompson! Read less

I really loved this hotel. It's charming, comfortable and exquisitely unique! I stay in NYC a lot for business, and this is probably one of my top 2 favorite hotels. I was concerned that the noise from the lobby would travel up to my room, but once the door closed I couldn't hear anything. The staff was incredibly helpful, from the door men to the concierge. The rooms were cleaned promptly every day. I loved the way the rooms were decorated and the bed was so comfortable. Another bonus, I loved the location! You can walk to TribeCa, West Village, Chelsea and Soho if you're up for a stroll. There's not a lot of traffic in the area, which is an added bonus. Lots of restaurants within walking distance and of course, Joes Pizza down the street. Will definitely consider this my favorite lower Manhattan hotel! Read less

Historic architectural charm. We walked everywhere, accessed ferries and subways with ease. The lounge was very relaxing and the cocktails were outstanding. Its an old hotel so the rooms are small and show their character. Bathroom was well maintained with a large shower stall.

Historic architectural charm. We walked everywhere, accessed ferries and subways with ease. The lounge was very relaxing and the cocktails were outstanding. Its an old hotel so the rooms are small and show their character. Bathroom was well maintained with a large shower stall. Buildings are close together so you can't expect a view of anything except the building next door. There is a lot of construction going on in the area, but as we walked, we noticed there was construction everywhere. Service was very adequate. Door-persons were solicitous and front reception quietly acknowledged us upon walking through lobby. Prior to arrival we received quick response to a query. We enjoyed the subdued setting and will be back. Read less

My girlfriend and I travel often and seek out interesting hotels or inns as part of our adventures. The Beekman, although architecturally beautiful, will never be revisited again. From the start it was a bad omen. Needed to valet our vehicle, nobody out front except construction and trucks. Girlfriend went in to get help , took 15 min for someone to come out while I negotiated with construction workers to let me stay in the spot till valet arrived. The restaurant had one of the worst waitresses I’ve ever experienced. No joke. She had no personality, was forgetful, slow, and went on break without telling us. We tipped her appropriately. The reception had no clue what was going on. We didn’t receive our bags in our room for three hours , we had to call to remind them. We ordered room service at night around 11:30 , they were out of basically every item we ordered,, salmon, shrimp, and a salad we wanted. Such a joke Don’t go it’s a ripoff as well. Read less

We returned to The Beekman for a second time this past weekend. Our first visit was soon after the hotel's opening, and we were so impressed. It was up there as one of our most favorite NYC hotels. Unfortunately this experience didn't live up to the first. The hotel hasn't been well-maintained: the paint in our room (#307) and the bathroom was chipping away, the window blinds were broken, and two electrical outlets were cracked/broken. I would've forgiven all of those things were it not for a sleepless night. At exactly midnight on October 4, jack-hammering started on the street outside and continued through until we checked out the next day at 11am. We spoke to Reception and the hotel claimed they had no advance-notice of the noise. The lack of care or empathy in staff in responding to this issue was a real let down. It's such a shame because the hotel itself is nice and well-run. We won't be back. Read less
