The Hotel – Voted the best hotel in New York by Condé Nast Traveler

When only the best will do, a stay at New York’s Best Hotel, as crowned by the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler in its Gold List 2019, is in order.

Located within the centre of Lower Manhattan’s thriving “New Downtown” and nestled between the East and Hudson Rivers, The Beekman is surrounded by some of Manhattan’s most iconic attractions, including the Brooklyn Bridge, the Woolworth Building and One World Trade Center. The area boasts an abundance of shopping, with boutique and luxury stores at Brookfield Place, Westfield WTC and the Seaport District, while the burgeoning dining scene offers a variety of options from neighbourhood classics to newly opened Michelin-starred restaurants.

This stunning historical building blends modern art and old-world charm and offers a unique nine-storey atrium with eye-catching pyramidal skylight, illuminating the hotel from within. The upper levels of the atrium are decorated with Victorian wrought-iron railings and balustrades and ornamented with flowers, dragons, and sunbursts. On the main floor, the atrium forms a stage where guests can gather in a series of intimate seating areas amid decadent décor.

The hotel also offers a nostalgic Mad Men-style bar, high-end restaurants and the basement Alley Cat theatre with live performances. Its history is impressive: the site has hosted a succession of creative and academic achievements including the New York City debut of Shakespeare's Hamlet and the establishment of Clinton Hall, where writers such as Edgar Allan Poe and Mark Twain honed their craft.

Mingle with New Yorkers in the know at The Bar Room's famous Sunday brunch with live music or indulge your palate at Temple Court, offering an outstanding menu by acclaimed chef Tom Colicchio.

The Room – Sophisticated designer interiors

Immaculately restored by world-renowned interior designer Martin Brudnizki, the building’s interior combines original architectural details with luxurious touches and evokes a sophisticated residential appeal. Guest rooms boast high ceilings, custom oak beds with leather headboards, eclectic vintage furnishings, Carrara marble-tiled bathrooms and aged oak floors adorned with jewel-toned rugs. Stay in a Superior Queen with decadent touches like a state-of-the-art oversized rain shower.

King Upgrade: Enjoy more space and the luxury of a custom-made king bed with a leather headboard when you upgrade to a Superior King Room.

Deluxe Upgrade: Treat yourself to a Deluxe King Room offering even more space filled with eclectic bespoke furnishings, complemented by curated artwork and a craft cocktail table.

Premium Upgrade: Lavish velvet and leather furnishings and 35sqm of bespoke space await when you upgrade to a Premium King Room. These rooms are perfect for those looking for an extra touch of city luxury and a generous room size that’s notoriously hard to find in New York.

VIP Studio Upgrade: Indulge in the ultimate upgrade: a Studio Suite with extra-luxe seating, high ceiling and a generous amount of space that will help this plush corner of the city feel like a home away from home.

The Inclusions – Breakfast, cocktails and Alley Cat theatre access

Continental breakfast is included on three mornings of your stay at Temple Court, serving creations by acclaimed chef and restaurateur Tom Colicchio.

Unlimited access to The Alley Cat is included throughout your stay. Enjoy an intimate cocktail lounge experience reminiscent of Tokyo’s secret bars, where local DJs and musicians often showcase their talents. One cocktail each is included here, choosing from a menu of handcrafted concoctions.

The destination fee is also taken care of with your Luxury Escapes purchase, entitling you to the hotel’s Les Clefs d’Or Concierge Service, priority reservations at Temple Court, Augustine, The Bar Room, and Alley Cat and a courtesy luxury house car, ready to whisk you away within a 15-block radius from the hotel. Other benefits included unlimited local phone calls, a daily coffee and tea service in The Bar Room (6am-9am), a daily turndown Service with complimentary bottled water, unlimited high-speed Wi-Fi access, shoe shining, daily newspapers and 24-hour access to the bi-level fitness centre with Peloton Bikes.

See & Do – Get lost in Central Park and see the city from the Top of the Rock

No matter the season, New York is always a wonder to explore. Stroll from the famed Flatiron building – once the tallest skyscraper in Manhattan – along Fifth Avenue to the Empire State Building and admire the gorgeous designer shops along the way.

Then continue to Grand Central Station with its unique starry ceiling and further on to the famous Rockefeller Center. Home to the lighting of the Christmas tree and New York’s most famous ice rink come winter, Rockefeller Center also boasts some of the best views in the city. Head up to the Top of the Rock for a sweeping view over Central Park to your north and The Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, World Trade Center and the rest of downtown Manhattan to your south.

Finish your day by joining the locals for a lovely picnic in Central Park. Head to the larger-than-life Wholefoods supermarket in Columbus Circle (found at the south-west corner of the park) and choose from a selection of specialty cheeses, MYO salads, freshly baked treats and so much more. Then, pick any grassy spot in the 843-acre park nestled amid the city.
