Exuding old-world glamour and set within the walls of one of Lower Manhattan's landmark buildings, The Beekman is an elegant hotel which provides easy access to numerous Lower Manhattan attractions, as well as the hip neighborhood of Brooklyn beyond. Its beautiful nine-storey atrium showcases some of the most intricate detailing and design work and light floods in from the pyramidal skylight to create an airy and welcoming space.

This elegant styling continues throughout the rooms and suites which are tastefully decorated in a minimalist style with splashes of color and custom-designed furniture. High ceilings give a feeling of spaciousness and the eclectic mix of antiques and furnishings creates a homely atmosphere.

When to go

Summer or winter, rain or shine, there's always great stuff going on in New York, so when you're planning a trip, there's no real "best" or "worst" time to go. Weather wise fall and spring are the best times in New York. From April to June and September to November, temperatures are mild and pleasant, and the light is beautiful. Summers can be hot and humid while winter snowfalls are not uncommon.

September to December is conference season in New York, and we would advise booking early for travel during this period.
