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. Opening 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.
Today, the gorgeous Beaux-Arts façade of this luxury hotel in NYC belies a soothing new luxe aesthetic within. The stunning transformation led by acclaimed architectural design firm Gabellini Sheppard Associates invites discerning travelers to discover 330 guestrooms and suites boasting incredible views and bespoke furnishings. An air of posh authenticity embraces New York City’s premier luxury lifestyle hotel with cuisine by Charlie Palmer, style by Ted Gibson, exclusive spa experiences, and a robust fitness program curated for today’s modern traveler. Crowning The Knickerbocker’s renowned Times Square location is St. Cloud, the city’s most spectacular rooftop bar, enviably perched directly beneath the iconic New Year’s Eve Ball with privileged views of the most visited place on earth.
It has been called the cultural crossroads of the world, where fashion and finance meet. Where art inspires meaning and architecture defies logic. Where history is revered and the future is embraced. It is a melting pot of cultures and an intoxicating collision of sights, sounds and flavors. It is New York City… and The Knickerbocker is in the heart of it all, an iconic landmark that today is reborn as the finest of all luxury hotels in Times Square NYC. The hotel Concierge is happy to arrange tickets to Broadway shows, dinner reservations and other customized city excursions.
Exacting attention to detail and impeccable, intuitive service will accentuate the luxury lifestyle at The Knickerbocker, a member of The Leading Hotels of the World. An ideal destination for both leisure and business travelers, guests will enjoy a state-of-the-art fitness center offering cutting-edge classes and personalized instruction, as well as a curated selection of spa and fashion experiences. The pinnacle of The Knickerbocker experience will be the expansive 7,500 square-foot rooftop bar and terrace comfortably perched high above Times Square. Its unrivalled location, delicious culinary offerings, and unique cocktail menu—after all, it is rumored that Martini di Arma di Taggia invented his namesake cocktail here in 1912—combined with a casually sophisticated ambience are set to make The Knickerbocker rooftop a destination unto itself for visitors and local New Yorkers alike.
With elegance and an air of timeless authenticity, the legacy of New York’s Golden Age is reborn at The Knickerbocker.
