In New York, Lower Manhattan’s renaissance continues: media giant Time Inc has followed Condé Nast’s lead and relocated downtown, and with such a dense concentration of tastemakers per block, the renowned chefs – Nobu Matsuhisa, April Bloomfield, Wylie Dufresne – and cool hotels were bound to follow. Up this month: The Beekman (; from $619). Thompson Hotels’ restoration of the landmark 1883 building has kept the stunning nine-storey atrium and added a 51-storey tower, with Martin Brudnizki-designed rooms. Manning the restaurants are no less than Tom Colicchio and Keith McNally – whose Odeon restaurant, just up West Broadway (itself once again a nexus of cool), more or less put downtown on the map almost 40 years ago.
