I have just returned from a five day trip (Jan 23rd to 28th 0 to New York and we (my wife and I) stayed at the Paramount hotel.
OK, lets start with the good parts:
LOCATION- is excellent, literally two mins walk from the centre of Times Square.
HOTEL AND ROOM CLEANLINESS- excellent, the hotel itself is highly maintained and there is always a beautiful fresh smell in the lobby area. Our rooms were cleaned and bed linen changed daily.
NO FREE WIFI!! In this day and age I find it amazing that Hotels have the audacity to charge guests whom are already paying the Hotel an extra charge for WIFI, in this case the charge is in the region of $13 per day per device.
THE ROOMS ARE TINY!!, I measured by my feet that our room was 12 feet by 9 1/2, plus the bathroom, which was ok size but had no heating and was always cold.
ON FIVE SEPARATE OCCASIONS we went up to our room on the 16th floor and our keycard would not work , on one occasion I went down THREE times consecutively to have the card reset. The receptionist said that I must have had it next to my mobile phone!!!!untrue because my phone was upstairs.
THE BAR PRICES ARE REDICULOUS!! we ordered two glasses of wine, priced in the bar menu at approx $14 each, we got the bill for $40 for two glasses of wine!!!!!!!! we asked how come, and were told that the bar menu price does not include taxes or tips!!!!! BE WARNED
THE MAITRE D, in the Bar/Grill/Restaurant in the evening time was quite possibly the rudest man I have ever encountered. Four of us entered the bar (as residents) and were not aware that there was assigned seating and we were quite simply astonished at this mans approach to us speaking loudly enough so that his voice attracted attention, making us feel very embarrassed, we left immediately.
All in all, NO, i would not return nor recommend this hotel, unless I got a rediculously good deal!!
