Knickerbocker Hotel Announces February 2015 Opening

NEW YORK—Situated on the corners of 42nd Street and Broadway, The Knickerbocker Hotel will open its doors Feb. 12, 2015.

Originally opened in 1906 by John Jacob Astor IV, The Knickerbocker will pay tribute to its storied past while incorporating modern day functionality and contemporary design.

“The Knickerbocker will epitomize classic-reinvented. We’re embracing the hotel’s original DNA, while simultaneously offering guests intuitive service and relevant luxury,” said Jeff David, managing director of The Knickerbocker.


Architectural and interior design firm Gabellini Sheppard is overseeing the design of the 330-room Beaux Arts landmark.

The Knickerbocker has partnered with master chef Charlie Palmer to debut several dining venues in the hotel. Guests will have the option to dine at Charlie Palmer at The Knick, the hotel’s full-service restaurant and bar; JAKES @ The Knick, a coffeehouse and artisanal café; and St. Cloud, a rooftop bar complete with a cigar lounge from tobacconist Nat Sherman. In addition, priority access and preferential treatment will also be offered to hotel guests at Palmer’s flagship restaurant Aureole, located just across the street from The Knickerbocker.
