At the time, the area was an elegant, upscale part of town and a luxury hotel was necessary to house wealthy and esteemed guests when they would visit. Upon prohibition, the hotel was converted into offices for almost a hundred years.
After nearly a century of containing offices and retail shops, the recent completion of a $240 million gut renovation to convert The Knickerbocker back into a luxury hotel by modern standards has returned the hotel to it’s former glory.
To celebrate the renovations, and also to commemorate the hotels 109th anniversary, a drawing for a one-night, $2 stay is being offered by the hotel.
For a chance to win an epic staycation, register through the hotel’s website no later than October 16th.
