One night at the knickerbocker.

Bogota, Colombia

Fancy and traditional hotel, very clean and great location. Fast check in and check out. Kind personnel . A bit noisy specially because of the old elevator. Also bit expensive considering what it offers.

Top-notch service and comfort in the heart of NYC

Ottawa, Canada

Upon arriving at the Knick, we immediately knew that this was the right place for our family getaway to NYC. We were warmly greeted by Ming who helped us unload our vehicle and ensured we forgot nothing. Check-in was a breeze, and we were treated to complimentary cocktails in the St. Cloud bar while we waited for our room to be ready (20 minutes). Ming came to get us to let us know that we could get into our room. The 2 Queen Junior Suite is huge!!! 2 large TVs, a large private toilet and shower area, and a separate seating area! Perfect for our family with 2 teens! We couldn’t be happier with our stay at The Knickerbocker. It was close to Bryant Park for our morning skates as well as a short walk to Times Square!
