Financial District, New York City
A Thompson Hotel
What it is
An abandoned 1883 bolthole that now lives anew, thanks to a redesign by Swedish designer Martin Brudnizki and restaurants by Tom Colicchio and Keith McNally.
What it isn't
Tiny. There are 287 guest rooms, plus penthouses in the turrets. Yes, turrets.
What we think
You probably recognize the atrium of the Beekman even before staying here; when the hotel reopened, it was in seemingly every other Instagram post. And for good reason—looking up into the layers of exposed ornate walkways is like traveling back to Victorian New York. But don’t expect an ounce of stuffiness. Rooms are fitted with Carrara marble bathrooms with sliding barn doors to the rain shower; Sferra linens; a locavore mini bar and cocktail table; and D.S. & Durga toiletries. We love that service is more than any latter day New Yorker would ever expect—you can order room service from Tom Colicchio’s on-site restaurants at 4 a.m., should it strike your fancy; evening turndown service and daily paper delivery is a given.
You're here because
You like to feel Special with a capital S, and The Beekman manages that (even in a city with more “special” citizens per capita than most locales on earth). Among the amenities: a Lincoln Navigator house car and Les Clefs d’or Concierges.
It’s 12:30 a.m. in the city that doesn’t sleep, and you’re starved. But the idea of waiting for room service doesn’t appeal. So you head to Tom Colicchio’s bar in the atrium and salivate. Your order? Lobster pot pie with black truffle, confit chicken wings with Calabrian chile and honey, and Rough Rider rye on the rocks. The night’s not over yet.
