The Knickerbocker is a legendary New York landmark reborn as the first luxury hotel in Times Square. A treasured monument among Manhattan hotels, The Knickerbocker is a haven of refined elegance created by John Jacob Astor IV in 1906. Here, famed Italian tenor Eurico Caruso and renowned American playwright George M. Cohan made their homes, and names like Rockefeller and Fitzgerald gathered in the bar, once known as the 42nd Street Country Club. Today, it has been reimagined into a sophisticated urban sanctuary mere blocks from Fifth Avenue, The Metropolitan Opera, Rockefeller Center, MoMA and Central Park.
The gorgeous Beaux-Arts façade of this luxury hotel in NYC is juxtaposed with a contemporary luxury aesthetic within. The stunning transformation led by acclaimed architectural design firm Gabellini Sheppard Associates invites discerning travelers to discover 330 guest rooms and suites that boast incredible views and bespoke furnishings. Cuisine by Charlie Palmer, style by Ted Gibson, exclusive spa experiences, and a robust fitness program curated for today’s modern traveler add an air of posh authenticity. Crowning The Knickerbocker’s renowned location is St. Cloud, a spectacular rooftop bar atop Times Square. Perched enviably beneath the iconic New Year’s Eve Ball, it affords the most privileged views of the most visited place on earth.
