“beekman a pleasant surprise...”
The Beekman is located in a great area... about 2 blocks from the UN, 20-minutes to 1/2 hour's walk to Broadway/Times Square, a few blocks from the subway, a block away from the river, and right across from a great mom and pop grocery where you can buy fresh fruit for breakfast. At night we felt very safe walking in the area, although we weren't out past midnight. The suites were comfortable, quaint and quiet. The light switches could have used a better cleaning, but other than that the suite was quite clean. The ambience was low-key but welcoming. The kitchenette was tiny but adequate. In all, I'd recommend this to anyone wanting a good, clean, safe, affordable and quaint spot in NYC. Will stay there again myself.
“Impressive for the price”
Was about the cheapest hotel I could find in manhattan, so I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were helpful and friendly. The room was very clean and comfortable. Would have been nice if it was a little closer to a subway stop.
“The Best Stay in New York City”
We knew the hotel was older but wanted the extra space rather than the usual cell block you would get in New York. Yes it was older, but the service and location right down from the UN building was absolutely outstanding. The service people there bent over backwards to make our stay comfortable. Anything we asked for they provided with a smile. I loved the space that enabled my daughter and I to stay comfortably for 8 days. If you dont care about the newest and best and want a comfortable large rooms that you are not paying a fortune for you had best stay here. We loved the fact we could either choose to cook our own dinner in the kitchen which we did sometimes or go out. It made living in New York much more reasonable. Access by bus or cab or subway was easily available anywhere in the city. We saw so much in the 8 days we were there. I would highly recommend this hotel.
“OK for the money”
Good location in central Manhattan. Hotel is showing its wear...needs some upgrading in decor. Wallpaper was coming off in the hall of my room. No internet unless you are in the front lobby and you have to pay for it. But this is typical of most NYC hotels. However, a bit disappointing for a business traveller. Usually get this for free other places/hotels.
“fit our needs perfectly”
the room was quite large. having 2 kids with us ,we were really happy with bedroom and kitchette. it wad a bit dated but clean. a great diner and corner store outside front door.
We had a comfortable suite with kitchenette, the kids were happy with the sofabed. The kitchenette was inadequately supplied, but friendly staff quickly supplied a kettle and pot when we asked. Soundproofing between suites was not great. Light sleepers, bring earplugs for traffic, you're in Manhattan! The building is attractive inside and out. Surrounding area feels safe.
“Great place to stay”
Staff were polite, helpful and attentive. Room was very comfortable, clean and well supplied. Safe and quiet. Close to a great cafe for breakfast Easy access to Subway.
This is a great hotel for anyone doing anything at the UN which is across the street. It's not as conveniently located as many other midtown hotels. However, finding an affordable spacious suite in NYC is an amazing discovery. Also, the hotel is very quiet and the views from the restaurant on top are superb. There's a well-stocked 24 hour corner store across the street.
We stayed at the Beekman for my first visit to NYC and we were very happy. It was a very good size, the kitchen was adequate for our needs and the location was great. The staff were friendly and approachable. A problem with the phone bill was fixed without any big issues. The decor was dated and somewhat worn, but for the price it was a great deal. The hotel added to our overall enjoyment of the city by being one thing we didn't have to think about at all. We will stay again when in NYC and we will recommend it to our friends.
“Appartment size room in NYC”
Off the main drag, but it's only a 10-15 minute walk. The hotel itself, very pleasant, it was as though we had our own NYC apartment. Don't expect to have a plasma HD TV or jacuzzi bathtub as the hotel is quite old. But are you really going to spend any time in the room anyway!! For the $$ compared to other 3 star hotels, I would recommend the Beekman.
