What's Hot: Revitalized Paramount in NYC revealed
By Dani Friedland on 3/20/2013
RFR Holdings LLC is unveiling the new concept for Paramount, the iconic hotel in New York City's theater district.
The property, originally designed by theater architect Thomas Lamb, has undergone a US$40 million renovation. Paramount will reopen Billy Rose's Diamond Horseshoe after a 61-year hiatus this fall to complete the property.
The design team, which included Stonehill & Taylor Architects and Meyer Davis Studio, drew inspiration from the dramatic and fantastical elements found in many of Lamb's theaters for a look that includes dark woods, sculptural chandeliers and a palette of blues, reds and neutrals.
The 597 guestrooms and suites now have a modern and minimalist look and views over Times Square. Paramount offers two loft-inspired entertainment suites.
The two-story living room-style lobby centers on a stainless steel fireplace and includes a DJ booth.
Executive Chef Jason Kallert serves modern comfort food at Paramount Bar & Grill, which is a partnership with LDV Hospitality. The Italian-style coffee bar, Corso, offers locally roasted coffee and wood-roasted espresso in a space with marble counters, vintage espresso machines, and pops of red.
A boutique called “Free & The Brave” sells apparel, accessories, beauty, home, kids and travel products that are either made in America, designed in America or inspired by America. The hotel's Paramount Space mezzanine-level event spaces can accommodate up to 200 people.
