The Knickerbocker
In the heart of New York City, edging the bright lights of Broadway and the calm of Bryant Park, a legendary New York City landmark is reborn as the first luxury hotel in Times Square. Opened in February 2015, The Knickerbocker is a haven of refined elegance; a treasured monument among all Manhattan hotels created by John Jacob Astor IV in 1906, now reimagined into a sophisticated urban sanctuary. Mere blocks from Fifth Avenue, The Metropolitan Opera, Rockefeller Plaza, MoMA, and Central Park, here is where famed Italian tenor Enrico Caruso and renowned American playwright George M. Cohan made their homes, and where names like Rockefeller and Fitzgerald gathered in what was once known as The 42nd Street Country Club.

Conceived as the premier luxury lifestyle hotel overlooking Times Square between Broadway and Bryant Park, The Knickerbocker's 330 guestrooms, including 27 Junior Suites and 4 Tribute Suites—the Caruso, Cohan, Martini, and Parrish—offer the perfect respite from the high-octane energy of a vibrant city. Nestled within the hotel's 16-story Beaux-Art façade, all accommodations boast a sleek and contemporary style, with customized floor plans, soaring 12-foot ceilings, 8-foot doors, and 6-foot windows creating an indulgent sense of space. Bespoke furnishings, oak wood finishes, richly textured fabrics, and intelligent lighting add to the sublime ambiance, while plush Stearns & Foster® Euro-top beds piled high with luxurious SFERRA® linens and Ploh® feather pillows invite blissful moments of calm and reprieve. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, guests staying at this luxury hotel in NYC will find all the comforts of home at their fingertips, from state-of-the-art technologies to exclusive Ted Gibson bath amenities.

From the artisanal cafe fare at the lobby-level Jakes @The Knick, to the hotel’s signature Honest American Cuisine served at Charlie Palmer at The Knick, to the perfectly balanced lounge menu and handcrafted cocktails on offer at the magnificent St. Cloud rooftop bar, hotel guests and New Yorkers alike will discover the legendary hospitality that made The Knickerbocker the most iconic of all Manhattan hotels.
