The stunning circa-1880s Beekman Building was finally polished up last year, and reopened as a luxury hotel. (Here’s what it looked like when it sat in beautiful abandonment.) This month, the hotel will officially unveil two new suite additions to their stock of rooms in the landmarked building.
The Turret Penthouse Suites are located on the rooftop of the building, and the press release notes that to access the 1,200-square-foot suites, “guests will arrive through a private entryway from the 10th floor of the hotel.” The suites feature “40-foot pitched ceilings,” fancy chandeliers, “luxurious and vintage furnishings with rich, industrial finishes,” an antique fireplace, a wet bar, lounge, dining room, powder room and marble bathroom. And that’s just the first floor.
On the second floor you’ll find “an imposing king size bed and freestanding soaking tub,” and plenty of windows offering sweet views.
Click through for a look, but maybe save your $6,500 and put it towards your rent, a downpayment on a home, or, I don’t know, give it to charity! Those are all nice options that will garner you more than one night in a hotel room. If you do not heed my advice, please invite me to the dinner party you plan to host in the hotel room. Thank you.
