Times Square is the world’s most famous attraction—stand here, and everyone around the globe knows exactly where you are. So what could be more magical than not only standing under the lights, but staying there too? For discerning travelers looking for luxury Times Square hotels, The Knickerbocker Hotel is the place to be, thanks to its refined style and exclusive services and yes, perfect location.
The legendary Astor family built the Knickerbocker in 1906, and it quickly became the hub of New York City’s social scene. F. Scott Fitzgerald and John D. Rockefeller were regulars, as were journalist, opera stars and politicians. Over a century later, architecture firm Gabellini Sheppard Associates has recreated that New York mystique with a design that takes a nod from the past while constantly pushing towards the future. Sleek wood furnishings, muted tones and silver accents create a stylish oasis in the heart of one of the world’s busiest intersections.
No other Times Square hotels treat guests so royally as the Knickerbocker. They can enjoy cuisine from star chef Charlie Palmer and his team at the onsite Charlie Palmer at the Knick, and use bath amenities from (and even schedule appointments with) celebrity stylist Ted Gibson. Fitness-minded visitors can use the Knickerbocker’s extensive gym New York Knicks icon Larry Johnson curated the Knickerbocker’s fitness center, so ensure all guests leave New York City with memories that can last a lifetime.
On the corner of Broadway and 42nd Street, The Knickerbocker Hotel is at the most famous intersection in all of New York City. Times Square, with its crowds of visitors, professionals and iconic dressed-up characters, is just outside the hotel’s front door. The shopping mecca of Fifth Avenue, and attractions like Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building and Central Park are all two subway stops away. Business travelers can reach their Midtown meetings on time without taking the subway, and travel downtown or uptown on any of the twelve subway lines running through Times Square.
