4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

We chose the hotel for its location and based on reviews from other travelers. We found the rooms spacious and clean. The staff was friendly and courteous. The Knick is obviously a old hotel, but renovations have restored it. The lobby is attractive and clean. There is a business vacancy on the ground level, but the spa and onsite restaurant seem to be busy. This is a combination condo residence and hotel. It was quiet for the most part and other guests were cordial and polite.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    I love the charm of the place. Feels like you've stepped back in time--in a good way. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. I also like the location of the property in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to walking paths through Juneau Park and the lake.

    • Liked: Staff & service
    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    We have stayed at the Knickerbocker several times always been more or less satisfied. This time, the apt we rented (727) was not in good condition.... particularly the furniture. For the $, this is disappointing and inexcusable.
