New York’s Beekman hotel found its home inside of a nine-floor building in the financial district which was built in 1883, making it one of the oldest skyscrapers in the city. The building was abandoned for some time before becoming a landmark in 1998, and it took two years of renovations to make it what it is today.
The hotel retains some of the building’s original details, such as an impressive atrium ceiling in the center of the building.
The development project of the Beekman hotel also included the building of a condo development next door. The building has 68 residences as well as more hotel rooms.
The hotel recently opened two new restaurants that were highly anticipated in the area. One of those restaurants is Tom Colicchio’s Fowler & Wells, and the other is Keith McNally’s bistro Augustine. Tom’s restaurant Fowler & Wells is actually named after two phrenologists who used to have their offices in the building.
Room prices in the hotel range from $400 to $3,500 per night.
