The Knickerbocker Hotel commanding an enviable address in the heart of Manhattan, edging the glow of Times Square and the calm of Bryant Park, an iconic New York City landmark is reborn. The Knickerbocker hotel is a haven of refined elegance; a legendary monument created by John Jacob Astor IV in 1906, now re-imagined into a sophisticated urban sanctuary.

 

The Knickerbocker Hotel

Mere blocks from some of the world’s most revered cultural diversions – Broadway, The Metropolitan Opera, MoMa, and an easy walk to Fifth Avenue and Central Park – here is where legendary tenor Enrico Caruso and renowned American playwright George Cohan each made his home. Where artist Maxfield Parrish originally showcased his famed Old King Cole mural, and where names like Rockefeller and Fitzgerald gathered in what was known as The 42nd Street Country Club.

300 rooms – including 27 junior suites and 4 signature suites – all have an astounding view of the city, lit up in true New York glory.
