New York City, with its endless supply of date spot options, is one of the world’s most romantic cities. For couples in search of romantic hotels in NYC during their visit, The Knickerbocker Hotel is the prime choice, thanks to its impeccable style, unbeatable location and luxury services.
Romantic hotels need to have style, and The Knickerbocker delivers in spades. Built by the famous Astor family in 1906, it quickly become the play place for New York’s high society. F. Scott Fitzgerald and John D. Rockefeller were regulars (Rockefeller is said to have ordered the world’s first Martini at the Knickerbocker’s bar). Journalists, politicians and opera stars all made it their meetup spot of choice. Now, Gabellini Sheppard Associates has revitalized the landmark building with muted tones, sleek wood furnishings and silver accents. It’s a sultry oasis in the heart of Times Square.
On the corner of Broadway and 42nd Street, The Knickerbocker hotel plants guests firmly in the bustling center of New York City. For the perfect date, take your special someone to dinner and a show, all within a five minute walk from the hotel. Other date options nearby include the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building, or even a stroll through Central Park or down iconic Fifth Avenue.
No other romantic hotels in NYC offer as luxurious service as the Knickerbocker does. From impeccable cuisine at the onsite restaurant, Charlie Palmer at the Knick, or drinks at the gorgeous rooftop bar overlooking Times Square, couples can keep date night extra local by staying entirely within the hotel. Custom bath amenities from celebrity stylist Ted Gibson are another perfect way for couples to indulge.
