Opened in 1928, the Paramount Hotel’s 20-story, brick and marble French Renaissance edifice gives way to a dimly lit, retro-mod lobby. The space uses mirrors, glass, marble and abstract lighting to cozy effect, with taupe and blue carpeting, upholstered leather sofas and armchairs, and low-slung coffee tables piled with photography books. Above the lobby’s fireplace on the second floor, a DJ plays soft jazz tracks that nod to the vintage New York look. The 597 neutral-toned guest rooms feature pops of color in the cherry throw pillows atop mattresses dressed in Egyptian cotton linens. Deluxe King Rooms are a spacious-by-New-York-standards 280 square feet, with light flooding in through oversize windows and views of Times Square from rooms on the higher floors. Tucked off the lobby, the Paramount Bar & Grill and is a welcome, low-key spot for pre-theater drinks. Eat tasty bites such as pan-roasted New Zealand salmon with sweet corn, heirloom tomatoes and parsley vinaigrette, and order a bottle of red from the wall of wine at the back of the dining room. Elsewhere, there’s a shop named Free & the Brave that sells an assortment of men and women’s fashions, jewelry and other accessories.
How to Get There
My son and I stayed in the Paramount Hotel from 6/11 through 6/16.
We found the room to be clean and well taken care of.
The employees all seemed to be customer oriented.
Peter spent time with us and gave us coupons for a free breakfast through the rest of our visit at a good restaurant. We had very good breakfasts there each morning. Just about a half a block from hotel.
Customer service in this hotel is very poor.
We came to the Paramount for 5 nights and we had originally booked a deluxe king room. On walking into the room we were shocked at how small and shabby the room was. The shower had no light so when showering you had to have the curtain open which then meant water splashed everywhere (shower was in a tiled cave like area in the corner of a very small bathroom). When trying to navigate around the bed you hit your head against the TV.
We asked for an upgrade and for $120 we moved to a deluxe suite. The room is far bigger and has better quality furniture and decoration. The room is not as shabby as the king and the bathroom is bigger with a shower over the bath. I would not call it a suite though.
Only good point about this hotel is the location.
Hotel needs major redecoration especially the bathrooms. Staff also need customer service training.
We stayed one nite at the paramount hotel. Rooms are a bit small but cozy none the less .the location is excellent time square close by. The lobby is also very cozy make you feel like lounging around . Upon arrival we were
Able to access our room right away. I would recommend this hotel very good for the price.
Very convenient. I had a king room which was roomy, clean and comfortable. Low lights in lobby and elevator were somewhat disconcerting but caused no problem. They do a security check starting early evening which I appreciated. The staff was helpful and accommodating. I would stay here again.
I've stayed at this hotel a few times and love it. Clean, nice, comfortable rooms. Lobby is fantastic! Staff is wonderful and accommodating. Security in place is much better than other hotels in the TS area. Location is everything and the price can't be beat!
