The Beekman just became New York City’s most in-demand hotel
The 287-room Beekman Hotel, which includes an additional 51-storey tower of private residences, opened in Lower Manhattan earlier this week. Built in the early 1880s, the iconic building has been used as anything from law offices to a publishing house. In 2008, the city landmark was bought after years lying dilapidated, and ambitious plans to reopen the building for business were drawn.
The hotel is defined by that breathtaking nine-storey atrium, which is towered over by a pyramidal skylight. The architecture and design was overseen by Gerner Kronick & Valcarcel Architects, and remains very much true to the majesty and character of the building. And there are two in-house restaurants, individually run by award-winning restaurateurs Tom Colicchio and Keith McNally. The Beekman is now accepting reservations, from upwards of 1,000 US dollars.
