Karen understands Customer Service! No kidding....

Our third visit to The Paramount was about to go terribly wrong, but Karen at the front desk righted things quickly. Our assigned room was not going to fit our needs and Karen promptly arranged to store our bags and move us to one that exceeded our needs! The location could not be better, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the entire staff is friendly.Great experience!

Poor to say the least

Really disappointed as there website claims fully refurbished well the room we had its bathroom looks like it was last done over 20 years ago its tiles were loose and some even falling off the walls. Wifi was slow to the point of useless and the cafe/bar was closed but no one could explain. Reception staff miss informed us several times during the stay as well.

Was expecting better customer service and better experience

The hotel is well located, 5 mins walk from Times Square. Rooms are small. We upgraded ourselves to the deluxe king size, but a bit disappointed. The description was better advertised. The reception staff are not really welcoming and friendly. I won’t stay here next time i come to NY.

Very food service

We spent our summer holidays in this hotel, it was our first time in the United States, the location is ideal and even if the rooms are small, the proximity to Time Square cancels this defect. To make it more pleasant was the assistance of Mr. Mamuka that with the smile and professionalism that distinguished him did our stay more comfortable in a completely new place for us. I recommend this place

AlexK6512, General Manager at Paramount Hotel New York, responded to this review

Thanks for the great review, ermelinda78! It's wonderful you enjoyed your stay with us so much! We strive for excellence so we're thrilled you appreciated not only our prime location in close proximity to Times Square, but also the kind service that Mr. Mamuka provided you with! Your praise lets us know we're doing our job! We can't wait to host you again soon for another amazing experience! Have a fantastic day!

A facade of glam

The hotel has a beautiful facade, a very well decorated lobby but awful rooms. I booked a queens deluxe room and got a full size bed crammed into a room so small that the bathroom was probably converted from the original closet.

AlexK6512, General Manager at Paramount Hotel New York, responded to this review

We appreciate the feedback. It's unfortunate your stay in our hotel didn't exceed your expectations. We regret you weren't entirely satisfied with our furnishings and accommodations. We care deeply about the happiness and satisfaction of our guests so we'll address all of your concerns with our team moving forward. We do hope you give us another opportunity to share a more positive experience with you soon.
