New Hotel Alert: The Knickerbocker

Next month, The Knickerbocker hotel will make its grand debut in Midtown Manhattan—with a coveted address at West 42nd Street and Broadway, near the hustle and bustle of Times Square, as well as tranquil Bryant Park. The Beaux-Art building, built by John Jacob Astor IV in 1906, when the area was still known as Long Acre Square, was once the home of famed tenor Enrico Caruso and renowned playwright George M. Cohan. In February, the building will boast 330 guest rooms, including 27 Junior Suites and four Tribute Suites, a library, Charlie Palmer-helmed eateries (including lobby-level Jake's @ The Knick, Charlie Palmer at The Knick, and St. Cloud rooftop bar), event space and athletic center overseen by a former New York Knickerbocker, basketball star Larry Johnson. For the February 12th opening, the stylish hotel staff will be primped by celebrity hairdresser Ted Gibson of What Not to Wear fame. Guests will also find his bath amenities in room.
