Built in 1906 by John Jacob Astor IV, the Beaux Arts-designed Knickerbocker played host to some of the world’s biggest names in entertainment, politics, culture and high society in the early 20th Century.
Today, guests of this Times Square hotel—a designated New York City Landmark—can enjoy luxurious perks, such as delectable dining in the form of onsite offerings by Master Chef Charlie Palmer, including Charlie Palmer at The Knick, serving American cuisine (think Fluke Ceviche with Grated Meyer Lemon, Scotch “Quail” Eggs in Dijon Mustard & Bacon Mayonnaise, and Atlantic Halibut with Asparagus & Carrot Puree); and St. Cloud rooftop bar, featuring a lounge menu and handcrafted cocktails. There’s also artisanal café fare at the lobby-level Jake’s @ The Knick.
The hotel features 330 guest rooms, including 27 Junior Suites and four Tribute Suites, which boast 12-foot ceilings, eight-foot doors, six-foot windows, bespoke furnishings, oak wood finishes, plush Stearns & Foster Euro-top beds, Ted Gibson bath amenities and more.
