Overview

Boutique sleep with Mexican-fusion restaurant and primo Empire State Building views

The Lowdown

Located in the heart of New York’s vibrant NoMad neighborhood, The Paul boasts top-notch service and design hotel touches. Comfort is a priority at The Paul, which offers thoughtfully designed guestrooms (yes, there is such a thing as a spacious New York bathroom) and roomy common areas perfect for socializing. You’ll find an eclectic mix of artwork throughout the hotel, including urban landscape paintings by James Zwadlo in guest rooms and London-based artist Brendan Dawes’s cinema-redux art in the elevators. The 122 residentially styled guest rooms are on the small side, but they never feel too tight thanks to smart design and multi-pane windows that showcase (in some) dead-on views of the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower. The spacious, well-lit bathrooms are outfitted with rainfall showers and paraben-free Pharmacopia bath products. Stop by the sleek industrial-chic La Mesa de Paul restaurant for Mexican-fusion bites and hand-crafted cocktails, then swing by the top of the 21-story building to take advantage of the sweeping city views.

In the Area

Get your fashion fix at the original Macy’s, at the other big name retailers in Herald Square, or at the NoMad outpost of hip kid boutique Opening Ceremony. After scoring some fab fashion finds, make a beeline for Mario Batali’s sprawling Italian food mecca, Eataly, where you’ll nosh on cured meats, cheeses, honey-glazed focaccia and housemade gnocchi, or sample some brews at the rooftop beer garden. Burn off those carbs by heading to the Fashion Institute of Technology’s free Museum of Fashion, which houses more than 50,000 garments and accessories, from the 18th century to the present.

Nice lo
Reviewed 3 days ago

Nice 3.5 star hotel a great convenient location.The 2 Elevators at times are a bit slow since there is no service elevator for employees. We had a sub par breakfast one day that for the cost was not worth it.We we're supposed to get breakfast vouchers during our stay but was not given them.Roof to bar has great views of the empire state building.

Great hotel, great location
Reviewed 1 week ago

I stayed a few nights in this very nice hotel with a perfect location in MidTown-NoMad area of Manhattan, almost in the center of the island with a subway station around the corner, Times Square 20 minutes on foot, Madison Square Garden also around the corner.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, there was a mixed up during the reservation and my sister and I ended up with one bed instead of 2, but we could be moved quickly. The room was very clean, bright, with a desk, TV, safe and wardrobe. The beds are super confy. The bathroom was also very clean, with enough towels, but the only thing is the water in the shower doesn't have much pressure and sometimes stops for a few seconds.
We couldn't try the rooftop bar since it was closed for the season but the staff told us there's an hotel a few steps away with one (we did not get to try it), and the indoor bar is quite nice, good food and good cocktail.
The breakfast is not worth its price and a bit sad for a 4-star hotel, not much choice and you can run out of space pretty quickly, although the staff there was also super friendly.
But all in all a very nice place.

Fantastic Stay!
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The hotel was perfect for what I wanted.

The room was reasonably sized, clean, tv on the wall, coffee machine, clean sheets, usb plug sockets.

The heating wasn’t great however I was supplied with an electric heater.

Staff were really helpful and friendly, check in and out went smoothly.

The bar is great and reasonably priced especially for New York standards.

It’s in a great location, Times Square was only a short 10 minute walk away. I had a view of the Empire State Building from my bed it was lovely looking at, at night.

Would stay again.

Had a nice time at The Paul NYC
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We had a great time at The Paul Hotel, where we stayed for 7 nights. The rooms are nice and clean and with our room on the 21st floor we had a great view on the city with the One World Trade Center in the distance. All the staff was nice and very helpful. We will for sure come back, should we again book a trip to New York.

Second Stay - still happy
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This is our second stay in this hotel and I would definately stay there again. Only slight gripe was the room was described as having an oversized shower, when in reality they meant disabled room. So the bathroom was flooded with a shower and sink etc were set low.

Pro's
. Location, location, location - so handy and central, especially for Penn station
. Friendly staff
. Modern room (athough in NYC so bijoux
. Nice bar

Cons
. In NYC so tiny in comparison to other hotel rooms you're probably used to
. Construction - we had a room with a terrace (low floor) and could see the butt crack of the workers just outside our room
