KNICKERBOCKER HOTEL DEAL: When the Millennium Knickerbocker—then named the Davis Hotel—opened its doors at the height of the Roaring Twenties, the gothic-inspired building embodied all the glamour of the era. In the ballroom, dancers whirled atop a floor of glass tiles lit from underneath, making the room’s mirrors, chandeliers, and gilded dome glitter like crystal.

Today, on the eve of the hotel’s 85th anniversary, a $27 million renovation has restored the building’s Jazz Age opulence while updating accommodations to modern-day standards of comfort (click deal below).
