Fodor's Expert Review The Knickerbocker

6 Times Sq., New York, New York, 10036, USA

An oasis of elegant, urban sophistication in the heart of Times Square, the Knickerbocker is a soothing counterpoint to the mass of people, lights, and excitement that converge nearby at the crossroads of Broadway and 42nd Street. Rooms in the landmark building are sleek and contemporary—and perfect for a good night's sleep, thanks to fabulous beds, soundproof windows, and blackout drapes. The rooftop bar, St. Cloud, has the wow factor, with stunning views of the surrounding skyscrapers. Charlie Palmer at the Knick, on the fourth floor, serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner; the giant billboards of Times Square seem to peek playfully in through the restaurant windows and liven up the interior.
