Great Potential in Need of Some Clean Up
Overall the stay was fine. The TV remote was non-functioning and it two two days to have it fixed. The property has wonderful bones but is looking dark and dreary. It clearly is in need of clean-up/renovation. Location and staff are first rate. I expect that Millennium will clean it up and the property will have a bright future, however the Knickerbocker is not yet there.

Knickerbocker - What's Not To Like?
I like this hotel a lot. It has an old world feel and the staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast lunch cafe has plenty of excellent choices and the wait staff are among the friendliest I've met. The hotel room was very clean, and with daily upkeep, not something that happens much these days, I give higher marks for that extra touch. The location is ideal as it is walking distance to a lot of sites and near a bus line for folks who don't want to walk. Lots of restaurant choices nearby. Oops almost forgot to mention the lovely bar. I plan to stay there again next year.
