An urban sanctuary located in the heart of Times Square – the first luxury hotel in the area – The Knickerbocker is the ideal place on a holiday to New York to experience the electrifying thrills of the Big Apple. View the bright lights of Broadway as you sip on a cocktail at St. Cloud Rooftop bar, dine on culinary excellence at Ceviche and relax in style in your plush and sound-proofed accommodation. There’s an attention to detail in more ways than one, from the bellhops in knickerbockers and Doc Martens to the specially curated gym workout plan at the 24-hour fitness centre by New York Knicks basketball legend Larry Johnson. The city-centre hotel blends in seamlessly with the New York holiday glamour and all 330 rooms provide luxury comforts including Egyptian cotton sheets and flat screen televisions – not to mention incomparable views of New York’s impressive skyline from the expansive windows.

The Location at The Knickerbocker

It doesn’t get any more central than The Knickerbocker’s location.

The Knickerbocker is the ideal base for those who want to explore the city to the fullest and be close by to the heart of the Manhattan action on a New York holiday. The hotel is also directly opposite to One Times Square, making The Knickerbocker the perfect place to watch the ball drop from the St. Cloud rooftop bar on New Year’s Eve.

The Rooftop Bar at The Knickerbocker

Whether it be New York bathed in the natural sunlight or the city skyline illuminating brightly as night falls, the views from The Knickerbocker’s St. Cloud rooftop bar are nothing short of spectacular. Offering a progressive cocktail menu (The Knickerbocker is said to be the birthplace of the martini), craft bottled beers and an upscale New York-esque selection of small plates, every guest who visits is promised a truly unforgettable time. The eclectic entertainment at the rooftop ranges from relaxing music over the speakers to set the tone on quieter evenings to cirque-like fun for sky-high thrills.

Food & Drink

Charlie Palmer at The Knick

With dazzling Times Square views overlooking Broadway and 42nd Street from an enviable fourth-floor corner perch in the heart of Manhattan, Charlie Palmer at The Knick brings together two of the most iconic names in hospitality. Inspired by the rich history of The Knickerbocker, a 1906 landmarked New York City treasure recently reopened as Times Square’s premier luxury lifestyle hotel, Chef Palmer adds new twists to his acclaimed cuisine to create the Hotel’s signature Honest American Cuisine in an open action kitchen. An elegant use of glass, marble and lighting plays off sheer chain-metal drapes to create semi-private spaces throughout the room, enhancing an understated ‘see-and-be-seen’ vibe. Guided by Chef Palmer’s passion for market-driven ingredients, menus draw upon the local bounty of the Hudson Valley and North Atlantic with selections ranging from the Fried Chicken and Roasted Scottish Salmon to the Niman Ranch Burger. At lunchtime, Charlie Palmer at The Knick offers the Power Lunch menu, and come evening, the proximity to the theater district makes the restaurant the perfect destination for pre-theater dining.
