Historic cities like New York City are riddled with hidden gems. For years, the building that now houses the Beekman Hotel sat boarded up and uninhabited, but a few years ago it was finally reopened as a unique, luxury hotel to be enjoyed once again.
The hotel is truly a treasure. Built in 1883, the architecture is spectacular with features such as a nine-level atrium and Victorian touches. Even though the interior has been renovated and the decor made current, the history of the place was beautifully preserved and built upon. It’s the type of place in which you’ll wish the walls could talk.
