The Knickerbocker in New York, NY

Specialties

Commanding an enviable address in the heart of Manhattan, edging the glow of Times Square and the calm of Bryant Park, an iconic New York City landmark is reborn as a luxury hotel in NYC. Opening Fall 2014, The Knickerbocker is a haven of refined elegance; a legendary monument among all Manhattan hotels created by John Jacob Astor IV in 1906, now reimagined into a sophisticated urban sanctuary. Mere blocks from Broadway, The Metropolitan Opera, and MoMA, and an easy walk to Fifth Avenue and Central Park, here is where famed tenor Enrico Caruso and renowned playwright George M. Cohan made their homes, and where names like Rockefeller and Fitzgerald gathered in what was once known as The 42nd Street Country Club.

History

Established in 2015.

John Jacob Astor IV He was the original visionary; the man with a dream to build one of New York City's greatest hotels...and John Jacob Astor IV spared no expense in creating The Knickerbocker, the swankiest of hotels that served as Times Square's premier playground for the rich and famous. Indeed, Astor was the consummate host, selling room nights for just $2.50, but indulging the sybaritic passions of celebrities and dignitaries with lavish $500 per plate meals eaten off the only set of solid-gold dishes in the country.  Here at the turn of the 19th century was a place where Wild West gunslingers attended late-night parties thrown by Broadway actors, or where a pioneer aviator might schmooze with a Tammany Hall politician. And it is here in the early years of the 20th century that we are reimagining and retelling the story of The Knickerbocker, channeling John Jacob Astor IV's vision of creating the very best hotel in the world.

Great hotel staff who meet all of our accommodations for a large group a few weekends ago.  We experienced a little bit of everything this hotel had to offer.  Roof top party! Would be great for a wedding or a celebration of all kinds. Every night the food was cook to perfection.  Ricardo and his staff receive 5 stars!

camparing to some others nyc hotel, its quite roomy, and with pretty modernized facility. love all the complimentary cleaning kits and drinks(mini bar). I had experienced five stars hotel hving no free stuff, this four stars hotel is far better and surprised me a lot!
just a tiny critics, the door is thin and we can hear ppl outside in the hall way, and also, no earlier check-in (before 3PM) accepted (was saying no room available at 2:40PM when we arrived lolz)

Excellent dining and room.
The hotel has a flavored history and attitude.
Once I was in NYC, I know I am staying local instead of those chain hotels and restaurants.
This one will remind you of NYC of the good old time. Just like the feeling of Titanic movie.
