A New York icon since 1928, the The Paramount - A Times Square, New York Hotel has seen a multitude of stars, from Liza Minnelli to Yoko Ono to Daniel Radcliffe, step through its doors. And it's no wonder: This hip hotel combines one-of-a-kind design with a front-row setting for the best of Broadway and beyond. The Paramount is across from the Richard Rodgers Theatre and the Imperial Theater, and a few doors down from the Lunt-Fontanne Theater. You're also just steps from the heart of Times Square, where the huge billboards and around-the-clock crowds create a show of their own. Stop by the Times Square TKTS booth to score discounted tickets for shows across the city. For a pre- or post-theater bite, you can sate your appetite at the hotel's Paramount Bar & Grill or peruse the offerings of Restaurant Row, only 3 blocks from the hotel. Radio City Music Hall and Rockefeller Plaza are within one-half mile (0.8 kilometers).
Designed by Philippe Starck, the Paramount's buzz-worthy lobby is itself quite a showpiece, with soaring ceilings and a huge, donut-shaped chandelier dripping with crystals. Hungry? You can choose from a variety of comforting options at the Paramount Bar & Grill. For a quieter option, you can sip coffee and plan your next day's adventures in the Corso coffee bar, or enjoy the complimentary wireless Internet access. Just want to kick back and relax? Room service is available early morning till late evening.
Heading out? The hotel's city-savvy concierge staff can direct you to all of New York’s must-sees of the moment.
