New York city Opened in 1906, The Knicker­bocker Ho­tel was the cor­ner­stone of Man­hat­tan’s so­cial scene and a gath­er­ing spot for the likes of John D Rock­e­feller and F Scott Fitzger­ald. Af­ter a spell trans­formed into of­fices, the trea­sured land­mark re­opened as a ho­tel in Fe­bru­ary, with de­sign by ar­chi­tec­ture firm Ga­bellini Shep­pard, which pre­served the orig­i­nal Beaux Arts ex­te­rior. The Knicker­bocker boasts 330 rooms and suites, as well as ex­quis­ite cui­sine by celebrity chef Char­lie Palmer and im­pres­sive rooftop bar St Cloud. theknicker­
