A legendary monument in the heart of New York City, The Knickerbocker is now reimagined into a sophisticated urban sanctuary. The iconic landmark is reborn as the first luxury hotel in Times Square and welcomes guests with a curated collection of cultured, artistic and culinary experiences. John Jacob Astor IV’s stunning 1906 Beaux Arts landmark once played host to names like Rockefeller and Fitzgerald, who gathered in what was then known as the 42nd Street country club. Today, an air of posh authenticity embraces The Knickerbocker with cuisine by Charlie Palmer and exclusive experiences curated for modern travellers.
Certainly one of its unique features include three plush corner Sky Pods overlooking Times Square. Stylish indoor and outdoor seating options, the exclusive Waterford Crystal Lounge, an ultra-luxe private room, and lush living walls of greenery make St.Cloud the ultimate rooftop bar in NYC. Named for the late-19th century hotel that originally occupied the site, St.Cloud is the pinnacle of The Knickerbocker experience, offering a progressive cocktail menu, craft bottled beers and an upscale, seasonally focused small plates menu. Sophisticated entertainment is an understated-yet-eclectic mix of cirque-like, biergarten and speak-easy fun, while curated music selections set the tone for extraordinary experiences high above the city.
The Knickerbocker’s 330 guest rooms, including 27 Junior Suites, 3 Tribute Suites – Cohan, Martini and Parrish – and the expansive Caruso Suite offer the perfect respite from the high-octane energy of Times Square. All accommodations boast a sleek and contemporary style with bespoke furnishings, lavish marble bathrooms, incredible city views and cutting-edge technologies.
