Terrific hotel, in a great location, with terrific staff

I am a frequent business traveler and, when I need to be in midtown or adjacent areas, I always stay at the Knickerbocker. It is modern, clean, convenient, and most of all, the service is great -- shout out to Ula, Janelle, Kousuke, Faouzi, and Gehang in particular on my last visit -- these are people who know how to please (and especially what a weary business traveler needs). Keep up the good work, folks, and I'll keep coming back to see you.

We appreciate you acknowledging so many of them by name-- I'll be sure to pass along your kind words. We can't wait for your next visit. Warmly, Patrick

Work Trip to The Knickerbocker

I recently stayed at The Knickerbocker for an event on site and both the property and the staff were amazing. The rooms were clean and modern and the staff were extremely professional. The bar on the fourth floor and St. Cloud are ideal locations to have a drink or host an event. I’d especially like to give a shout out to Jenny Thorne, the Conference Sales Manager. I had the pleasure of chatting with her while at our event and she is extremely warm and welcoming. She definitely worked around the clock to ensure our event was a success. Thank you Jenny and the team for a great few days at The Knickerbocker!

We would love to host you again. Warmly, Patrick

Honeymoon at Christmas

My wife and I stayed at The Knickerbocker whilst on our honeymoon for three nights over Christmas. We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door and upgraded due to the nature of the stay to a grand city view room. Our room was fantastic and looked right out on to 42nd St. At about 6 pm we were brought up Champagne and chocolate strawberries, courtesy of the hotel manager, Peter. Our room was cleaned daily along with fresh towels and toiletries for the bathroom. Our Christmas dinner was booked for the Benjamin Steakhouse by concierge member Sarah, and we couldn't fault it. A fantastic recommendation. In regards to location, you would struggle to find a hotel better situated in the whole of Manahttan. Highly recommended and thank you for a fantastic stay in NYC.
