Our New York haven


First trip to NYC and opted for this hotel due to location and excellent reviews. Stayed for a week with hubby and 13yr old son in a deluxe double queen room. This was amazing, great size and was our sanity in what was a busy holiday. Room was internal facing on 15th floor and extremely quiet. Maid service was spot on with great room amenities. My only gripe is that there are no coffee making facilities. I noticed this prior to travel so I took my own travel kettle alleviating our caffeine needs first thing prior to venturing out. Birthday cake for Jnr was a lovely touch and beds super comfy. I personally loved the Diptyque toiletries. Rooftop bar was great and all staff friendly. Did not eat in the restaurant. Easy to get to hotel via taxi from JFK and we used the sub on our return journey as we were pro’s by then (much cheaper option also). I would highly recommend this hotel - especially if it’s your first time in New York as its a great central location at Times Square. Would perhaps choose a Downtown location should we choose to return but on this trip - The Knickerbocker was our New York haven and absolutely perfect.

I'll come back

I really recommend this hotel. It's very well located and the rooms are very comfortable,they are big and clean. People who work here are very worried about details and they are always trying to help you. I want to thank Mohamed Jimmy for all what he did for us.thank you for being always smiling and trying to help us at any situation. For us,you really made the difference,you made our days at the hotel. I'll never forget how you made us feel. Please don't change and do not move from here. We want to see you when we come back to this hotel because wihtout you it wouldn't be the same. When I talk about details,I mean: Its people,always worried about you Water everyday in your room Umbrellas Fruits,etc When you go to NYC,do not think it twice and choose the Knickerbocker because it is the best CHOICE. Thank you for making this time unforgetable for us. I 'd never forget the the days we spent here. Liza, Chile
