This Theater District landmark hotel got a $40 million dollar facelift.
Some hotels tell stories, with history practically embedded in the walls. Manhattan's recently revamped Paramount is one of those hotels. Following a $40 million dollar renovation, the landmark hotel, originally built in 1928 by architect Thomas W. Lamb (known for building famous theaters), has been re-imagined into a minimalist, modern property with Art Deco soul.
With 597 rooms and suites, one of the Paramount's highlights is its two-story lobby, reminiscent of a majestic theater, with both a fireplace and DJ booth. While tourists will no doubt be dazzled, New York locals, too, can flee the Times Square crowds to enjoy these impressive public spaces, and take meetings and meals in the bustling Paramount Bar & Grill or the hotel’s Italian coffee bar, Corso.
Serving modern American comfort food amid theater-inspired decor, the Paramount Bar & Grill kitchen is helmed by executive chef Jason Kallert (Tavern on the Green, Le Cirque). De-stress over the restaurant's rendition of a Moscow Mule (Citron vodka, fresh lime, ginger), or try a burger deluxe, meatballs, or chicken pot pie.
There's also a cool retail shop called Free & The Brave, fitness center, newsstand, and numerous event spaces. But the icing on this hospitality cake is sure to be the fall re-opening of Billy
Roses’ legendary Diamond Horseshoe nightclub, whose stage, between 1938 and 1951, was graced by the likes of Dick Haymes, W.C. Handy, and Charlie Barnet. Now that's New York history. 235 West 46th St., 877-692-0803
