The hand-written notes every morning that tells you what the weather will be for the day, the black umbrella and the detail of the robes hiding in the closet, to the wooden floors that whisper stories of the vanity era. All these made me feel like I was in the pages of the Great Gatsby.
The Beekman is an intimate 5-star boutique hotel nestled at the epicentre of Lower Manhattan’s vibrant new downtown.
Built in 1881, you won’t be able to stop yourself from being mesmerised by the skylight coming from the majestic nine-storey Victorian atrium.
It’s a time machine built on elegance and opulence. I’ve explored New York quite well, and I have to say, there is no building like The Beekman. It’s truly an architectural wonder that transported me to a dimension of storytellers.
The scent of oak and sandalwood, the chamber of the reception wrapped in Turkish carpets acquired by voyagers who sailed the world, and the warm smiles of the staff greeted me as I arrived, welcome to The Beekman, he said.
