Very Good8.0
Above average hotel but not 5 star
We had two rooms on the 7th floor. Hallway carpeting was old and buckling, especially in the largest area around the elevator. Also hallway often smelled but not sure if this was due to dining room service deliveries.

Incredible history made perfect w/ modern decor!
Incredible hotel- managed to keep the history, but embrace modern decor and technology. I’m so happy with our experience and the Knick is my new favorite hotel in NYC!

Great location as we could walk to theatre and dining. Our hotel bill was quite outrageous as explained below.. The “quietest” hotel we have ever stayed in and beds were comfortable. We woke at 8:00AM on Sunday and did not hear any other guests that morning (or previous evening). Staff was friendly and helpful. We had sticker shock at a $770.00 hotel bill!! Not sure we will be back based on hotel rate.

The hotel exceeded our expectations in all areas. The concierge, Erik Sherr, was awesome. Every restaurant suggestion he made was excellent. Erik is such a professional -- listened and answered all of our questions. The rooms were so clean and met our every need. Thank you for making our trip so memorable.
