This was our 2nd visit to the Beekman within 1 year. It's in a great neighborhood, very safe. The staff are so friendly, so not NY-style! The hotel & rooms could do with a little updating but the rooms are homely & comfortable. Good location + bus-stop right outside. Recommended!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Beekman Tower Hotel

a great value

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Beekman beginning of june, 2004 for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The front desk staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient and we were upgraded to a one bedroom suite! Although they are in need of a little updating
the suites are absolutely huge and you can pretend that you are living in Manhattan in your own flat. There is a good convenience store right across the street for stocking up your kitchen and plenty of restaurants nearby. (By the way, your next door neighbor is the UN! If you like Indian food try "INDIGO" (around the corner on 50th I believe)--it was truly the best I have ever had. it was Tony Awards weekend, so we got take out from a local deli buffet and cozied up in our living room !
You will like this hotel--it is not luxury, but it is clean and very spacious. We love the walk (isn't that what NY is all about?) so we did not mind the location. Even if you dont eat at the restaurant, you must go see the view!
Overall, a great value.

A safe bet

from DavidinDevon
The Beekman Tower is a safe bet for anyone despairing after reading hundreds of bad hotel reviews. The suite we had was clean, spacious and well-furnished and the main bed and sofa bed were comfortable. The kitchen was nice to have although we didn't use it much. The staff were mostly friendly and competent. Traffic noise on the 7th floor was minimal. After checking out, luggage could be stored and the hotel organised a car to the airport.

The hotel is in a fairly quiet, safe area near the UN. There is no subway station nearby (10-15mins walk), but the buses 27 and 50 go across the town along 49th St, returning along 50th St. Weekly Metro Cards are a very good buy if you're staying four days or more. Taxis are quite inexpensive for short journeys that are awkward by subway and bus.

We used the UN Plaza cafe/restaurant on the opposite corner for breakfast every morning, which we'd recommend.

Bad start - great finish

from VinrougeUk
My stay started very badly arriving at 21.00hrs and being told that the hotel had overbooked despite the fact that I had booked well in advance and my arrival time was known. The staff were very apologetic and they called a cab and took me to their sister hotel a block away but this was a huge disappointment. I said I would return the next day and expect a room and that an upgrade would be a goodwill gesture. I duly arrived and was given a marvellous suite with a balcony on one side that gave a great view of the 59th street bridge and on the other side the most amazing view of the Manhattan skyline, particularly at night.
I was also given a complimentary dinner that night in the Zephyr Grill and the steak was absolutely fantastic. The location for me was fine as I love to walk and when I needed the subway then Lexington was only a few minutes away. So nice hotel, friendly staff, shame about the over booking but can highly recommend so long as you don't need to be in the centre of things.

The Only Place I will Stay When In NYC

from A TripAdvisor Member
We travel to NYC about 4/year and after having stayed at numerous other hotels over the years - we decided to try the Beekman after hearing from a friend about the excellent food and accomodations. We're glad we did!. The suites were beautifully decorated, the staff courteous and welcoming and the food was scrumptious. We have dined at both the main level restaurant and at the skyline level - the view was breathtaking!
The waitstaff was courteous and we even noted that the head chef came out and checked on the guests and their meals/evenings - what a pleasant and nice touch! Keep up the good work Beekman - We'll be back!

t I say it was Excellent....)

from mister.c.
We stayed 9 nights during March & we found the Beekman to be an excellent hotel in every department. We stayed in the 1 bedroom suite for $158 a night, booked through the Affinia website, which for what we got was excellent value

I spent hours researching where to stay in NY, as we were wary about finding a stinker; we found the absoulute opposite!

I could talk for ages about the qualities of the room / hotel, but a list will hopefully paint the picture. Superb sized room with separate lounge area, sofa, table, chairs, great size. Excellent separate kitchen with dishwasher, fridge-freezer, microwave, hob, toaster, cutlery, kettle etc. All rooms clean, with excellent maid service and all the good touches like iron, hairdryer, safe etc. Basically its a good quality flat, with excellent space. Good bedroom and excellent shower / bath.

Helpful staff - we asked to be moved to the back of the hotel as there was a little road noise & this was done efficiently; courtesy calls by the manager to make sure all is well, etc. For NY, the road noise is minimal but we are not used to that, so the back of the property was better. Express any preferences you have when you book.

The downside; well the only one we could think of could be its location; 49th Street, 1st Avenue. This was not a problem for us; it is only 6/7 mins walk from the tube at Lexington Avenue and there is a bus stop close to the hotel. Its not too far from everything. However, if you must be close to say Times Square or Central Park, then this may not be the place for you.

All in all, a cracking hotel. Well worth a stay.

An Upstate review of the Beekman Towers

from A TripAdvisor Member
My favorite place to stay when in NYC. Pleasant, attentive hotel staff.Outstanding gourmet food served by waiters who knew the menu. I even met the head chef who took time to greet my guests and I . He wanted to be sure we enjoyed our food. We certainly did!! I'll be back!

re own New York Apartment

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at the Beekman summer 2003. Stayed on the 12th floor with great views of the UN Plaza and First Ave. Large, clean 1 bedroom suite.
Bathroom had a view! Kitchen light never worked, despite frequent requests to the management for replacement. Top of the Tower is a real classy place. Great views of Midtown. Staying at the Beekman again summer 2004.

The Beekman was worth it!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I spent about 3 days in NYC back in May '02. The Beekman Tower was recommended from clients of mine. I hadn't been to the city since a high school trip decades ago but wanted to vacation there to visit the sites. So, solo I flew up knowing only what I had read about in travel guides, I was anxious. As soon as I pulled up to the hotel I knew I was going to enjoy this trip. Very stylish and front reception polite, friendly. Cozy. I was given a one bedroom suite on the 17th floor overlooking First Ave. Great large (apartment) unit with lots of windows, livingroom, dining, desk, fax, kitchen, nicely appointed bedroom, smallish bath but with the best view from a toilet in the city!! B-fast in the Zephyr was superb and cocktails up in the Tower were excellent! Did not order room service. Felt pampered every day coming back to my "place" after long days out in the greatest city!!
Location is good--a little "too east" but it all depends on what you want to do and see there. I will miss staying there this May as I am returning to NYC with friends but they want The Waldorf. Hope it lives up to "my place" at The Beekman.

A Great Experience

The Beekman Towers is the perfect place for families. The suites are spacious and clean, the staff was friendly, enthusiastic, and very responsive to all our needs. It was a great value for the dollar. A perfect place to unwind at the end of the day!

Top Local Tips for New York City

metro card Get one as you will see so much of the city via the bus and subway and its great fun hopping on and off when you want, I think it was about $10 each for 6 rides, but you get free transfers within 2 hours of first ride.

Do some research There are many ways of getting around in New York. Do some research into the possibilities -- public transit, taxis, shuttle buses, etc.

the hop on/hop off tour bus This bus was way too slow for our family's vacation. On two different days, we started out on the bus, then abandoned it for the subway, because we had bought subway passes, and could get around much faster that way. If you are interested in a long, leisurely ride around the city and hearing the tourguide's narration, then the bus is the way to go.
