Ring in the New Year in New York City this year without the hassle of the Times Square crowds – welcome 2017 at The Knickerbocker hotel’s St. Cloud Rooftop Experience. The package includes a two-night minimum stay and two tickets to the hotel’s iconic New Year’s Eve party in Manhattan.

The cocktail-attire event offers views from just 150 feet away from the famed Waterford Crystal New Year’s Eve Ball. The party starts at 8:00 p.m. and continues well after midnight, until around 2:00 a.m. The event also has live entertainment from DJ Sam French and an accompanying instrumentalist. A full, premium open bar and passed dinner and Hors’ d’oeuvres created by celebrity chef Charlie Palmer will be available prior to a champagne toast at midnight.

For those looking for an all-out luxury event, book one of the Knickerbocker Sky Pods. The Pods create a private, yet still-in-the-action VIP experience for groups of 12 to 20 guests smack in the center of the holiday party, offering a corner view directly over Times Square.
