The Knickerbocker Hotel
New York City’s historic Knickerbocker Hotel once again reigns as the prestigious exemplar of luxury first visioned by John Jacob Astor in 1906. Its iconic “Beaux-Arts” architecture has stood the test of time and a $240 million renovation has catapulted the Knickerbocker Hotel into a 21st Century luxurious modern five star hotel, a star shining amidst the bright lights of Times Square and Broadway. The famed address, 6 Times Square, brings the elegance of the past into the dazzling present, ensuring an amazing New York City stay for business, holiday, special event, or weekend getaway. Here Astor and The Knickerbocker hosted and celebrated the Gilded Age of tycoons, politicians and playwrights, musicians and artists, authors and actors, the most memorable and legendary names of the early 20th century. Once frequented by Rockefeller and Fitzgerald, it is speculated that The Knickerbocker served John D. the first gin martini in 1912. Today its distinctive rooftop bar, St. Cloud, serves the best in handcrafted cocktails, wines and spirits. Its superlative restaurant, The Knick, boasts the top New York cuisine, “market driven, kitchen inspired”, curated by acclaimed Master Chef Charlie Palmer.
Positioned on the National Registry of Historic Places, The Knickerbocker takes pride in its contemporary revisioning, elegant decor, distinguished service, and VIP guest experience, ranking high on Jetsetter’s Best of the Best, Leading Hotels of the World, and TripAdvisor.
