I have been there a few times in the nineties after this Hotel designed by Phillip Stark was opened, and I remember this of one of the most beautiful hotels in the world. Everyone should stay there at least once in his life,
When I arrive, i was happy that the lobby was still looking great, just what Phillip Starck had in mind when building this hotel. This time I was back with my family (wife and little daughter), so I was in need for a bigger room. i knew all the rooms are tiny here, but with two beds in the room its ok.
The place were this hotel is located is the best thing on it, actually on Broadway/Times Square, followed that it was always good from the value. We got a good package from the agency so it was ok, view to the back of Broadway.
The rooms of Paramount always reminded me to a hostel, just designed from Starck which made it unique. No the problem is, that i guess the rooms were not renovated since ther were build. This is a little disappointing, because the famous sink of Phillip Starck only effects in a good condition (I guess Jan Schrager was much more behind that and maintenance that the new owner).
The restaurant and breakfast in the hotel is ridiculous expensive but there is a little coffeeshop next to the entrance which has fresh bakery.
As being the base for walking through Manhattan this hotel is congenial, get to your room only for sleeping or enjoy the lobby for relaxing.
Wlan is extra to pay is a bad idea for a hotel like that, that should be standard nowadays and it doesnt work properly at Hotel Paramount: you pay for 24hrs but once you log out you cant get back and you have to go to the front desk and get a general login key. This stupid wlan provider, gives no option to proove that you have 24hrs access, no helpdesk to reach, should be quit by the hotel immediately. And the worst thing is, when I had to prolong my access for 10 hrs I bought another three days, because this option is prechecked, 35 dollars too much for a dubious provider,
Cleanliness could also be increased: after two days we found a bottle under the bed which was not ours.
Anyway, for one or two nites I will always be back at the Paramount, if I see there any chances of getting renovated rooms.
