The Knickerbocker is a long-established mainstay of the New York City area. Established back near the turn of the 20th century, in 1906, it provides a view of Times Square, which is a one-minute walk away. The 42nd street subway station provides access to the rest of the iconic city of New York, and the Empire State Building is just a 13-minute stroll from the hotel.

The rooms offer a polished experience, and they come with designer toiletries and high thread-count sheets. There are also minibars available and the free Wi-Fi and flat screen TVs make the stay feel like home.

However, the chic restaurant gives guests a unique experience that is sure to be memorable. Guests can relax at the rooftop bar and those who favor a smoke can enjoy a cigar in the cigar lounge. This historic hotel also offers a comprehensive gym to give guests a chance to work up a sweat. In addition, it has parking available for a fee, which helps ensure the safety of guests’ cars.

It has an impressive capacity of 330 guestrooms, which include 27 Junior Suites and four Tribute Suites: the Martini, Parrish, Cohan, and Caruso. Each has its own style and flavor, and impresses with unique floor plans that help guests get a sense of the architectural spice of this well-seasoned gem.

The experience is capped off with St. Cloud, a stylish rooftop bar that epitomizes the New York City chill scene. Enjoy finely honed cocktails and craft beers while taking in the sights and sounds of the city below.

Newest first
7.1 Good
Pros:Continental breakfast was quite okay but could do with changes day-to-day. Consistent in room decor and stylien
Cons:Confusing lobby area. This could be fixed by relocating reception to the left side of the entry area rather than way up the end of the hall. It is too dimly lit too in my opinion. Our Junior Suite (1501) was quite dark with small windows. The complimentary tablet is a gimmick and is not likely to be useful to anyone with a smartphone or their own tablet/laptop. No hand towel rack—where do you put them? Disconcertingly loose bathroom/shower fittings. No coffee. Stain on couch.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Large bath sheets When I called guest services they answered using my name Staff very friendly and so helpful
Cons:Shower could do with more pressure
8.0 Great
Pros:The location is spot on, the rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable. The check-in/out is easy and the personnel is corteous; we had t use their concierge services twice and they were friendly and prompt.
Cons:Given the hotel class and its prices few things could be better, like a Nespresso machine in the room (very common these days even in 4 stars environments) - a greater selection of TV channels would also ber good. Therer's a Samsung tablet in the room, but you can't really do much with it. On arrival with luggage etc. we had to open the doors ourselves - minial as it may sound, when you're loaded with luggage opening a heavy door isn't that easy especially when you se the door men happily chatting inside.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:2 queen beds made this hotel perfect for our family of four. Located right on Times Square, the hotel held our bags after checkout while we went across the street to see a Broadway show.
9.4 Excellent
Pros:Once you get past the unprepossessing lobby, the hotel is really excellent. We were upgraded to a junior suite, which was large, comfortable and well-appointed. It was bitterly cold so we ate in the hotel, choosing the bar's little plate menu over the Vlentine's Day special menu; each choice was delicious. Large, contemporary bar and restaurant (maybe showing a little wear on the cushions) and excellent service. Location, right on the corner of Times Square, can't be beat if you want to be in the middle of it all. Not cheap, but we weren't on a penny pinching trip. Worth every penny. Special mention to the concierge for fulfilling a couple special requests.
Cons:As noted, the lobby is decidedly underwhelming although the staff was friendly and helpful. Otherwise, no complaints!
9.7 Excellent
Pros:The renovation last year really upgraded this NYC classic. Now the interiors are just as lux as the classic facade. Great location in Times Square but quiet and tranquil retreat inside. Great service and really friendly staff. We enjoyed our girls weekend immensely.
Cons:Avoid if you don't like fighting through crowds at Times Square.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Clean spacious rooms, good service, not great wi-fi
10.0 Excellent
Pros:We came for the birth of my first grandchild.the hotel is very modern and sleek. Our room was large and well appointed with all of the modern technological conveniences. The mattress was very comfortable with high thread count linens. The bathroom was large and had more bath accessories than I have ever seen. I.e. Cuff links, tooth brush, paste, etc. I loved the large soaking tub. We never heard any outside noise even though this hotel is located in Times Square From the front desk to the doorman, the service was incredible. Leilani, one of the managers even gave us a gift for the new baby. I would highly recommend this hotel!
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Great place to stay. Very sheik and hip. Roof Top Bar is out of this world!!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Impeccable service Immaculate rooms Excellent location between Times Square and Bryant Park
Cons:Can't complain about anything.
