We loved the hotel itself. Staff was great and the hotel renovation was stunning. The rooms were luxe and well appointed. As gold members of Expedia, we were upgraded twice without even asking. We would definitely make the Knickerbocker our go to hotel! The down sides — the restaurants on property were disappointing, serving only bar bites rather than full meals. We noticed that Charlie Palmer was at the hotel. Charlie Palmer is a well known steakhouse; it was late after traveling all day and we were salivating at not having to leave the hotel in the maze that is Times Square. We arrived only to realize that it was a snack bar version of the real thing and that was probably the reason there wasn’t a living soul in the place other than us on a Friday night. So we went to the hotel’s rooftop restaurant and had a few bar bites. They were good and the bartending staff were as well. Super nice people. But at 9 p.m. on a Friday night in the city that never sleeps, we simply wanted a nice meal without having to work for it. It didn’t happen. We hope this changes as NYC gets beyond the devastation of Covid. This hotel deserves to have a nice restaurant on premise. It’s location in the midst of Times Square also makes it quite noisy with street musicians banging on bongos well into the night. The up side is that the modernity of the hotel renovations so a lot to stifle the noise but if quiet is what you’re looking for, go uptown.

The hotel has a fantastic location...so close to subway and Broadway. We were worried about the noise from the streets but it was actually quite quiet despite the fact our window looked out to the busy street. Expedia messed up my reservation which was VERY stressful but the staff was exceedingly helpful and accommodating--specially "Yula" at the front desk. The only thing that I was not happy about was that despite calling to ask specifically about parking spot availability, I was never told that the parking is NOT on site. You have to make your way (which is difficult with the traffic, one way streets and luggage!) to a pubic parking garage. That said, I would definitely stay there again as long as I didn't need to park a car.

I am sad to see Midtown look so dumpy. Immediately leaving the hotel we felt unsafe. Also, this hotel claims to upgrade like many do on Expedia when you’re a Gold member, and I have yet to see an upgrade at any participating Expedia hotel. Safe your money and skip new jack city.
