The Knickerbocker

‘History Meets Contemporary Design in Times Square’

The Knickerbocker opened in 1906, firmly making its mark on the history of New York. The famous Martini cocktail was first created there, the hotel was used as a front company by a US spy in the Second World War, and in 1980 is was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The interior of this historic building has been transformed into a sanctuary of contemporary style and luxury. Situated in Times Square, the Knickerbocker is ideally located for the exploration of the inspiring and vibrant city just minutes from museums, famous monuments and world class bars and restaurants. After exploring the city, The Knickerbocker offers the ultimate in relaxation with exclusive spa experiences. A must try at the hotel is the rooftop bar St. Cloud for an amazing view of Times Square. The hotel also offers a fine dining experience at Charlie Palmer at the Knick, and fresh gourmet coffee and treats at Jake’s @ the Knick.
