The Beekman

New York, USA

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.

Comfortable, stylish and elegant hotel downtown. The bar is terrific, and the rooms (while certainly on the small side) are clean and well kept. Efficient check in, good service and a convenient location from which to explore.

I had the privilege of staying here over the weekend to celebrate my birthday. What a wonderful escape in a very busy city. This hotel opened only a few years ago, but when you enter the lobby you feel like you've stepped back in time to the early 1900's. Soft lighting, dark wood and ornate furniture welcome you as you step in to the lobby. The real story is when you walk to the elevators where you discover an open courtyard that houses a very vibrant bar scene. Look up and you will see ornate wrap around balconies all the way up to the 10th floor and the peaked glass skylight at the top. The room was spacious, especially for NYC and the staff is friendly and courteous. We lounged at the bar at the end of each afternoon sipping wine and watching all of the interesting people in the room. Truly a special place, especially if you want to stay in lower Manhattan and be a short 20-30 min walk to the East Village, Tribecca and Soho. Read less

From the moment we were welcomed by Luke at the front door and checked-in by Monique at the front desk, we were transported into another world of vintage beauty, history, elegance, personalised service, decadence and culinary delights. With the choice of three restaurants, a quiet, comfortable room with an array of food and beverage choices and new friends, Krystal, (and staff members who remember your name and drink) that made us feel so welcome plus live music at Sunday brunch we could have easily never left the hotel our whole stay! We even brought friends back for drinks at the Temple Bar so that they could experience it for themselves. It is clearly a popular meeting spot, a special space for getting together for both business and pleasure, a talking point for all so reservations are recommended for non-guests. Tables are reserved with priority going to hotel guests so we were never disappointed. We love change and variety but I think we have found our perfect match for future visits to NY. Read less

Well, I'm back again! This is now my fifth stay at The Beekman Hotel in Manhattan and as always my expectations once again have been exceeded. It’s been three years now since my first stay at The Beekman. Each year I’m in The City for 15 nights in the Spring and another 15 nights in the Fall. I could, and have stayed at any hotel in The City of my choice, but The Beekman keeps calling me back home. Why? Well it’s really quite simple. The Beekman just gets better and better with each passing year. Management is keen on attending to detail and cultivating just the right business friendly staff, services, and amenities. Going back decades now, I’ve stayed at all of the top-tier hotels in The City from their launch. One thing I noticed was that after several years of stellar success there followed a pattern of decline, neglect, lack of proper maintenance, and a similar decline in the quality of the staff and culture as the years flew by. The Beekman appears to be the exception to this general pattern of “the latest new hotel on the block” to just another hotel that gets worn out over time and falls into disrepair and disgruntled staff. At The Beekman however the hotel just gets better and better every time I visit. I’m not sure how they are doing it, but the hotel today is just as glorious and spectacular as ever and it’s the pleasant exception, not the rule, to see the same familiar faces who have stayed with the hotel since it’s inception. This tells me that the staff is being treated with respect and that there truly is an ongoing culture at The Beekman that is normally near impossible to maintain as time goes by. Because the facilities and the staff are so well managed, the guest experience is always the same, or better! No surprises. No issues. No problems. Just a very warm and friendly staff to gently and professionally take care of your every need. I would like to thank each and every member of The Beekman staff personally, from the doormen to the front desk, to engineering, the concierges, to housekeeping, and all the restaurant and bar staff as well. Each and every encounter with every member of the staff at The Beekman is always friendly and professional. There’s no need for “attitude” at The Beekman because there exists a culture of respect. The culture at The Beekman trickles downs through each of the staff members and is thereby experienced by the guest. It’s all just second-nature to them now and I can’t say enough about them all. Outstanding. Feel free to read any of my prior Beekman reviews here on TripAdvisor which mention the many specifics of the great hotel location, easy access to just about any subway train within a block or two, exquisite rooms, and the quintessential ambiance of the hotel. There is no equal. Special thanks to Julia and to Scott for always going out of their way for me. It’s such a pleasure to see so many of, what now I consider, my friends each year at The Beekman. I look forward to my next stay. Read less

My husband and I booked the Beekman to stay while in the city for our small wedding in April and it ended up being one of the best wedding decisions we made! Our plan was to get married in Central Park with our 18 guests, but the whole week leading up to our wedding day the forecast was calling for severe rain and thunderstorms and we did not have a backup plan! 2 days before our wedding, my husband called the Beekman to see if they had any options for us to hold our ceremony, and luckily they had two small event rooms available! The day before our wedding when we checked into the hotel, we toured the two available rooms and booked the Farnsworth room (literally 24 hours before our wedding!)- a beautiful dimly lit room with exposed brick. The staff were so helpful and accommodating in every way possible. They upgraded our room from the queen room to the junior suite which was absolutely beautiful and it was a lovely place to get ready on the day of the wedding. The event staff set up chairs for our wedding day, and provided champagne and cheese/crackers for our guests which was such a nice touch. From the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out the Beekman helped make our wedding dreams come true and we will definitely be back! Read less
