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
Paramount is my favorite place to stay in NYC. Every stay has been excellent, the venue is gorgeous, the rooms are small (it's NYC after all!) but comfortable, the location is simply perfection, and the staff are unfailingly friendly and quick to find solutions in the rare event that an issue comes up.
So I have visited New York City 6 times now, 3 of those times as a solo traveler and I have stayed at this hotel 5 of the 6 times and to be honest, I would not stay anywhere else, the staff are even starting to remember me now! The staff are always so welcoming and nothing is ever too much for them, very helpful. My phone couldn't connect to the WiFi using my room number so they gave me codes to use so I could stay connected to my family back home whilst I was away, it was just so easy!
The location is perfect, a stone's throw from Times Square and right opposite Hamilton and a few doors down from Tina the Tina Turner Musical for theatre lovers.
Beds are very comfortable, clean rooms and showers.
As I said, I'd never stay anywhere else.
I love walking to shops and restaurants. The Paramount is near everything I come to New York For.
Also, I always love the rooms, no matter when I am there. The staff is always attentive and helpful when I need information.
