Majestically restored, The Beekman Hotel is located in lower Manhattan between the East and Hudson rivers. The landmark building dating back to 1880 was restored by architecture firm Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel and decorated by interior designer Martin Brudnizki. The dark color palette, lighting, ironwork and ingenious use of carpets throughout the 287 rooms and atrium give an amazing Victorian Old World atmosphere aligned with the spirit of Manhattan in the 19th century.
But the eye-catcher is undoubtedly the amazing use of Persian rugs on the reception counter which sets the tone.
Sought after Paris-based design duo Gilles & Boissier created nearly every piece of furniture for the hotel’s soaring salon-style public spaces, as well as the 114 light-filled rooms and suites of the hotel. Weaving artisanal Baccarat crystal elements throughout, they lavished attention on each surface, be it a sparkling mica-covered vaulted ceiling, silver-leafed wood paneling, pleated-silk walls or a monumental marble table. New York design masters Tony Ingrao and Stephen Sills, respectively, handled the 60 residences and the ground-level contemporary French restaurant, Chevalier.
