THE VIBE:  Just a stone’s throw away from Times Square, The Paramount Hotel is a chic and romantic destination, hiding behind a classic theatre façade. This landmark hotel combines the comfort of your own living room with the liveliness of New York’s Broadway scene just outside its doors.

To add to the property’s ambiance, the hotel has a live DJ to fill the sounds of the two-story lobby. The bonus? You won’t have to wander far to find the perfect place to unwind and meet up with friends during your stay.

The Look: True to its roots as one of the first hotels in Times Square, the building reflects the theatrical character of the neighborhood. The 1980s hot spot was purchased by Aby Rosen – a developer known for his iconic properties.  After undergoing a substantial facelift 2012, the hotel’s lobby was transformed into a sophisticated and contemporary lounge that encourages guests to fill the space with dancing and laughter. Forget about leaving your hotel to attend a party. Paramount Hotel brings the party to you.

Large couches in muted primary colors paired with dark woods tie together around the large stainless-steel fireplace. Let’s keep this straightforward. We never want to leave.


Trip: Unlike most hotels equipped with so many unique perks, The Paramount stacks up with the big boys and has nearly 600 rooms for guests. After a long day of shopping city or a night taking in a Broadway show, rest your head into a plush pillow-top mattress lined with Egyptian cotton sheets. 8 hours, here we come!

The Taste: Housing Sony Hall, New York City’s premier music venue, guests have the opportunity to wine and dine inside the very same walls where world-renowned artists have once performed. The full-service restaurant and bar features a wide variety of food, so make sure you top off the evening with a dessert from their extensive list of sweet plates.

WTF: As mentioned, having Sony Hall on site really does have its perks. As the official hotel of the Tony awards, the venue is home to many celebrity events. After hosting Lady Gaga and Alexander Wang’s Met Gala afterparty and Us Weekly’s Most Stylish New Yorkers event—you could say the hotel is A-lister approved.
