    Decent

    Continental breakfast was quite okay but could do with changes day-to-day. Consistent in room decor and stylien

    Confusing lobby area. This could be fixed by relocating reception to the left side of the entry area rather than way up the end of the hall. It is too dimly lit too in my opinion. Our Junior Suite (1501) was quite dark with small windows. The complimentary tablet is a gimmick and is not likely to be useful to anyone with a smartphone or their own tablet/laptop. No hand towel rack—where do you put them? Disconcertingly loose bathroom/shower fittings. No coffee. Stain on couch.

    Great hotel

    2 queen beds made this hotel perfect for our family of four. Located right on Times Square, the hotel held our bags after checkout while we went across the street to see a Broadway show.

    Made my wife's birthday and Valentine's Day specia

    Once you get past the unprepossessing lobby, the hotel is really excellent. We were upgraded to a junior suite, which was large, comfortable and well-appointed. It was bitterly cold so we ate in the hotel, choosing the bar's little plate menu over the Vlentine's Day special menu; each choice was delicious. Large, contemporary bar and restaurant (maybe showing a little wear on the cushions) and excellent service. Location, right on the corner of Times Square, can't be beat if you want to be in the middle of it all. Not cheap, but we weren't on a penny pinching trip. Worth every penny. Special mention to the concierge for fulfilling a couple special requests.

    As noted, the lobby is decidedly underwhelming although the staff was friendly and helpful. Otherwise, no complaints!

    Beautiful building. Great location.

    The renovation last year really upgraded this NYC classic. Now the interiors are just as lux as the classic facade. Great location in Times Square but quiet and tranquil retreat inside. Great service and really friendly staff. We enjoyed our girls weekend immensely.

    Avoid if you don't like fighting through crowds at Times Square.

    Service Excellance

    We came for the birth of my first grandchild.the hotel is very modern and sleek. Our room was large and well appointed with all of the modern technological conveniences. The mattress was very comfortable with high thread count linens. The bathroom was large and had more bath accessories than I have ever seen. I.e. Cuff links, tooth brush, paste, etc. I loved the large soaking tub. We never heard any outside noise even though this hotel is located in Times Square From the front desk to the doorman, the service was incredible. Leilani, one of the managers even gave us a gift for the new baby. I would highly recommend this hotel!

    The Knockerbocker was a very nice hotel with a great location. My only complaint was the day that we left, we stored our bags for a few hours. When we came back to pick them up, it took 20 minutes or so to get them. I had to catch a flight. The front desk was unapologetic about it. They just stood at the desk, while customers waited and were dissatisfied. They need to make sure they are staffed properly at a busy time, and if not, other staff should pitch in. It should be a group effort, because it makes the hotel better as a whole.

About

Overview

The Knickerbocker is a long-established mainstay of the New York City area. Established back near the turn of the 20th century, in 1906, it provides a view of Times Square, which is a one-minute walk away. The 42nd street subway station provides access to the rest of the iconic city of New York, and the Empire State Building is just a 13-minute stroll from the hotel. The rooms offer a polished experience, and they come with designer toiletries and high thread-count sheets. There are also minibars available and the free Wi-Fi and flat screen TVs make the stay feel like home. However, the chic restaurant gives guests a unique experience that is sure to be memorable. Guests can relax at the rooftop bar and those who favor a smoke can enjoy a cigar in the cigar lounge. This historic hotel also offers a comprehensive gym to give guests a chance to work up a sweat. In addition, it has parking available for a fee, which helps ensure the safety of guests’ cars. It has an impressive capacity of 330 guestrooms, which include 27 Junior Suites and four Tribute Suites: the Martini, Parrish, Cohan, and Caruso. Each has its own style and flavor, and impresses with unique floor plans that help guests get a sense of the architectural spice of this well-seasoned gem. The experience is capped off with St. Cloud, a stylish rooftop bar that epitomizes the New York City chill scene. Enjoy finely honed cocktails and craft beers while taking in the sights and sounds of the city below.
