The location and view from the room were perfect. We could see the lights of Broadway. The hotel was exceptionally clean and comfortable. All staff were very friendly and helpful. We bid for an upgrade and had a room with two queen beds with views. This was perfect for Mother and Daughter. The bathroom was very lovely with two sinks, large walk in glass shower and rain shower head.
The staff was ever so helpful. Your bellman Min was especially helpful and friendly. He made us feel very valued as guests. Incredibly professional and personable. A true asset.
Big modern rooms.
It stated you were getting a $34 breakfast included on booking and actually you were only entitled to their express breakfast which had a value of $10 in their cafe.
Room service was not the best , if they can improve that will be great
I was pleasantly pleased from the moment I walked in the front door and was greeted by the ever so friendly and helpful doorman Ming. I was surprised to have have my room prepped for bed when I came back after my evening adventure. I was amazed that my room was cleaned when I came back from a long morning walk. I came back at 11:30am. The room was lovely. The bed was more comfortable than any hotel bed I can recall. Black out blinds. I had an interior room and it was completely quiet from the Times Square noise. Room 1515. The bathroom was huge. Great shower. Giant bath towels. Robes. My room was always magically cleaned. Always fresh towels. Trash emptied.The roofdeck bar is gorgeous. Best I've seen in NYC. The bartenders on Saturday night were funny and attentive. I had some small dishes at the 4th floor bar. Yummy. Cheese and Strawberry Flatbread and a cauliflower gratin dish. I stayed 2 nights and Ming escorted me and my bags from coffee shop in hotel to taxi and hugged me goodbye. Really fantastic. I've stayed at many hotels in NYC. Some of my favorites are the Grand Hyatt The Evelyn Hotel Empire Hotel. All for various reasons. This is now my favorite and it will be hard to stay anywhere else. I can't wait to come back with my family next time.
Not one thing I can think of
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.
