16 Feb New York’s Iconic Knickerbocker Hotel Re-Opens
The Knickerbocker in New York City re-opened its doors to guests on Thursday, more than a 100 years since John Jacob Astor IV first built the hotel in 1906. Situated on the south-east corner of 42nd Street overlooking Times Square, the 330-room hotel houses a 204sqm event space holding up to 250 guests.
Designed in the Beaux-Arts style, “the Knick” first opened on October 23, 1906, and the building has collected many anecdotes; like being the (rumoured) birthplace of the original Martini in the years since. At its opening in 1906, the hotel was marketed as having “prices within the reach of all.”
The Knickerboker is located on the south-east corner of 42nd Street overlooking Times Square, the 330-room hotel houses a 204sqm event space holding up to 250 guests.
A member of the Leading Hotels of the World it will be operated by Highgate Hotels, the single largest operator of hotels in New York City.
