The Knickerbocker Hotel, New York
Very Good8.0
Great Location
Personally you couldn't get a better location in New York Times Square. The hotel was a little cold for my liking, not perfectly suited to a family visit but rather as a business hotel. This is also reflective in the rooms and bathroom which doesn't have a bath.

Very satisfied and will stay again.
We enjoyed our stay very much. The service, both the staff at the front desk as well as the room staff, are very attentive and helpful. Our room was well appointed, comfortable and spacious. Staff at the bar are also very friendly and attentive. The location is also perfect. We will stay there again.

Cool modern elegance steps away from time square!
My son and I went to New York City for the night to see Michael Bublé in concert, and staying at the Knickerbocker hotel made a great night even better! My son thought it was the most beautiful hotel he’s ever seen and lunch at the Charlie Palmer was delicious! The design aesthetic of the whole hotel and the room was really cool, although the smoked glass Walls of the bathroom might be a bit offputting for more than one person in the room, but it was still really lovely to look at! We would definitely stay again!
