Greatest bartender ever!

Had a lovely time at the rooftop bar! George gave excellent service and was warm and welcoming. He was knowledgeable, made perfect drinks (best Manhattan I’ve ever had) and he was fun to talk to! Even with a busy bar we always felt taken care of. Make sure to ask for him next time you stop bye! Thanks for the great time George!

Loved our meal at St Cloud!!! Carlos Cintron is the BEST!!!

Seriously enjoyed our meal at St Cloud- the charcuterie, shishitos and duck wings were OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! We had espresso martinis and the Rose wine, and it truly was just a meal to remember!! Loved the ambiance of the outdoor bar! Carlos was AMAZING!!! He provided such an amazing and lovely experience for us- doted on us hand and foot, and it made the meal all that more special!! Thank you so much @Carlos Cintron!!! We will be back!!

4 bordering on 5

We've stayed at the Knickerbocker before, and this time we decided to try something else while staying in NY. However, the other hotell messed everything up and left us without accommodation. We reverted back to trusty old Knickerbocker in our time of need. Checking in is a pleasure at the Knickerbocker. never a problem. We got the rooms we requested and settled in. First night we had dinner att he Charlie Palmer, and I'm sad to say the chef has not improved the menu since the last time we visited. It might be a new chef or maybe the old one lost his touch. We've never had a bad dish at the Knickerbocker, but all dishes we had were average this time. Last time around they had amazing burgers and seafood. This time around it was the "hip" food front and center, squash, beets, parsnips, barley, grits etc. It seems the chef panders to critics rather than customers. Breakfast was also sub-par compared to the last times we were here. a bit pricy and a meager spread. So, on to the positives. The rooms are very nice, the location perfect, the staff are ultra friendly and extremely professional. The only exception to this was again at the Charlie Palmer, inattentive staff, bringing us the wrong wines and generally making a mess of service. 2-star service and menu making a 5-star hotell a 4-star one.

Weekend in NYC

Amazing location and beautiful hotel. Diego Lozano was so helpful in bringing us everything we needed. We stayed on the 16th floor and it would have been inconvenient to go to the lobby for amenities. Diego was always there for us when we needed, with a smile on his face! Furthermore, Muhammad the night bellman was always so kind and helpful especially getting a taxi to JFK at 4am. Highly recommend!
