Let the opulence of the past inspire your future
Cross the threshold at The Beekman, and prepare to be inspired by the extraordinary 1881 nine-story atrium and pyramidal skylight. From the minute you step into the stunning atrium flooded with natural sunlight, you’ll immediately be transported back in time to late nineteenth-century Manhattan, where Victorian elegance reigned supreme and sophistication was built into the very foundations of the city.
This iconic landmark building has been beautifully restored to reflect its glory days. Fuse this with the subtle blend of eclectic furnishing and sophisticated interior design conceived by Martin Brudnizki, and you have a new type of space—one that harnesses the beauty of the past, the dynamism of downtown Manhattan, and the optimism of the future.
The culture-seeker in you will revel in the building’s meaningful heritage, it was the site of the New York City debut of Shakespeare’s Hamlet; the establishment of Clinton Hall, where Edgar Allan Poe honed his craft; and the launch of New York University’s inaugural classes in 1832. Meanwhile, your inner foodie will delight at the collaboration with not just one, but two James Beard Award–winning restaurateurs Chef Tom Colicchio and Keith McNally, who’ll debut their new, highly-anticipated restaurants, Fowler & Wells and Augustine.
If you must venture outside, away from the cozy buzzy hum of the hotel (and your custom-designed oak bed with luxurious sateen SFERRA linens), you’ll be a few minutes walk from the dazzling East and Hudson Rivers, Brooklyn Bridge, the newest luxury shopping experience in New York City; Brookfield Place (featuring Hermès, Salvatore Ferragamo, Paul Smith and more); the Westfield World Trade Center, and the reimagined Seaport District.
Still have energy to burn? Stop in at the dual-level fitness center featuring Peloton studio spin bikes before freshening up in your Carrara-marble tiled bathroom with oversize rain shower. Then, we say head straight to The Bar Room and sip on some seriously delicious cocktails beneath the pyramidal skylight underneath the stars.
