Excellent stay in New York

We really liked the hotel, we had a corner double bed room with partial view of Time Square on the 11th floor. Very large room for New York standards, very modern and comfortable. excellent and fast service. It is a must to have a drink at their roof top bar. Very well soundproofed, did not hear a noise from the square.

Place is in action, but hotel needs renovation.

We stayed in martini suite 3 nights. Room is clean, most of things were broken either old. One layer toilet paper, amenity by request only. First night we had problem with noise from A/C they came and fixed in one hour, it happened at 2am. Service was average, they have really nice managers and fast service. I got in uncomfortable situation when i asked for shaver, and person who brought it to me lectured me for leaving "do not disturb" light.

Great hotel

We were thoroughly pleased with our stay at the Knickerbocker. The room was large and beautifully appointed. The linens were high quality. The staff was very pleasant. We loved being in the center of Times Square but you would never know it by how quiet our room was. The rooftop bar was another family friendly surprise. The Knickerbocker was the perfect way for us to begin our NY vacation.

Dreamer527772, it was a pleasure to host your family. I'm delighted to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay. Happy that you loved being in the center of it all but that you felt miles away once you stepped through our doors. Pleased you especially enjoyed your time at St. Cloud. We would love to welcome you ball back. Warmly, Patrick

Terrific service and experience

My wife and daughter recently went to New York, and were having a difficult travel experience with the airlines. I called the concierge at The Knickerbocker, and Erik quickly helped me arrange a car to get them from JFK. He also helped arrange getting them a late dinner and helped turn a rough start to their trip into a much better experience. Communication and execution were fast and efficient. Rooms were clean - housekeeping came twice a day. Really appreciated!

ecsouza, thank you for your excellent review. I'm pleased to hear that they had such a great experience. Glad that they felt so well taken care of by Erik-- I can't wait to share your compliments with him. We hope to have the chance to host you all again. Warmly, Patrick

I always come to NYC for business trip and I have been staying in many hotels and met lots of good people , but this time one my friend and I passed by Knickerbocker Hotel on the 42st Time Square looking for nice place for some drink . There was a very kind and friendly doorman whose name is KARMA he was telling us a lot about knickerbocker Hotel and Rooftop bar . He strongly recommended us His Hotel rooftop and hotel too . We took his words and went there . It’s was super duper good . I think his name really matches to his name . We will go there again soon . Thanks again to karma .
