Check out the incredible reveal of the new Paramount Hotel renovation – very glamorous, a chic and stylish destination unlike anything else Times Square has to offer.
The Paramount has history, starting with its original 1928 design by legendary theater architect Thomas W. Lamb. The hotel is somewhat of an architectural landmark because many of Lamb’s iconic designs no longer exist, such as the 1929 Fox Theatre and the 1919 Capitol Theatre.
The designers at Meyer Davis Studio and Stonehill & Taylor Architects wanted this renovation to embody the lavish elegance of Thomas Lamb theatres and accomplished this by creating a lounge-like atmosphere, swathed in shades of muted red and washed blues.
We love the stainless steel fireplace in the lobby. The whole area looks very comfortable and cozy despite the spaciousness of double height ceilings. A striking Coltrane lamp installation by Delightfull adds intrigue.
The Paramount Bar and Grill is cool too. Like most theatres, the room lacked natural light so the architects compensated with neat backlit skylights. Vintage espresso machines and movie theatre fabrics complete the look.
Have you ever stayed at the Paramount Hotel? We’d love to get a peek inside the newly refreshed rooms.
