About the Paramount Hotel Times Square New York
A modern urban hotel with early 20th-century style, the Paramount Hotel is an established stomping ground for sophisticated travelers who adore its location in the heart of the Theater District.
Ideally positioned to offer guests access to both the buzzing nightlife in Times Square and quieter afternoons in Central or Bryant parks, the historic Paramount Hotel goes to great lengths to offer guests the best of New York while maintaining a balance between upscale and attainable. Guests of the Paramount are provided with the ambience, amenities and services that make an anonymous disappearance from the hustle of the business world or city itself possible, but travelers take note: This hotel is right in the middle of it all, with a celebrity-friendly bar on location.
A throwback from the 1920s, the Paramount Hotel is steps away from Broadway's Richard Rodgers Theatre, Imperial Theater and the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, which explains why it's been a popular hangout for stars like Liza Minnelli, Daniel Radcliffe and Elaine Stritch. Its watering hole, Library Bar, is a frequent hangout for Tony Award winners, making it a thrilling pick for stage fans with encyclopedic memories of Playbills and headshots.
Guest rooms pair bright white walls and reflective lighting with gray and red accents, blackout shades, 600 thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets, down comforters and pillows and cheeky touches like using classic paintings as headboards. Flat-screen televisions with premium channels are also available in each room. As a vintage construction (complete with an ornate old-New-York facade out front), the rooms in the Paramount run smaller than its millennial competitors, but its suites are generous and its newly designed Couture Suite is outright lavish (one bedroom, den space, one-and-a-half bathrooms and a kitchenette with dining area, all done up in smooth surfaces and geometric design touches).
The lobby is pop-modern trendy, featuring oversized chairs, organic wood touches paired with an asymmetrical silver-leaf staircase. A hotel with an eye for art, the Paramount proudly displays works by Andy Warhol, George Condo, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jeff Koons, Julian Schnabel and Mimmo Paladino.
When you're done vacationing inside the hotel, the whole of Times Square and Midtown is waiting outside. Take in as much Broadway theater as you can, visit Rockefeller Center, unwind in Central Park or Bryant Park, venture out to one of hundreds of bars and restaurants.
Theater people! Mere feet to Broadway houses and a hotel that caters to the stage crowd. What more could you ask for? International travelers have long appreciated the Paramount's location and chic decor, and business visitors should note that the Library Bar is a perfect place to seal a deal. Families should keep in mind that suites are better suited for accommodating groups of four or more.

Library Bar and Restaurant
A mash-up of celebrity graffiti, bar touches like billiards, plush loungers and couches and actual library influences like mahogany walls and rows of modern art books, Library Bar is a Times Square nightlife favorite that doubles as a sensible and chic hotel dining destination during the day. Brunch is served daily with offerings like smoothies, waffles, bagels and lox, egg dishes and freshly baked goods. An Asian and Mediterranean-influenced lunch, pre-theater noshes and full dinners are also served. The bar fills up after the Broadway theaters empty each night, but it never reaches a frenzied fervor (it is the Library, after all), so drop in for a relaxing cocktail and a chance to mingle with Manhattan natives (they'll tell you where the best spots in the city to visit really are).
