The Knickerbocker Hotel
This luxury hotel in Times Square was founded by legendary businessman John Jacob Astor IV.
The 1906 building that houses this Times Square hotel has quite a history. Formerly referred to as the “The 42nd Street Country Club,” not to mention the birthplace of the martini, this New York City landmark has redefined itself through the ages, from its provenance as an elite hotel opened by financier John Jacob Astor to its conversion into an office building, and most recently, to its rebirth as a luxury hotel once again.
The Beaux-Art façade has been meticulously preserved, but the interior, including the 330 guest rooms and suites, has been completely renovated with a modern design that emphasizes space, comfort and style. Twelve-foot ceilings and oversize windows pair with custom-made oak furnishings, luscious fabrics and silvery accents to create a refined ambience. Amenities include 55-inch flat-screen TVs, Samsung tablets for personal use, free bottled water and soft drinks, sound-proof windows and Ted Gibson bath products. On-site dining is excellent, with Progressive American cuisine at Charlie Palmer at The Knick. In addition, the St. Cloud rooftop bar offers lounge fare, drinks and stellar views.
