This is the hotel to visit if you want an experience close to being in an ultra-modern and stylish movie. Designed by Philippe Starck for Ian Schraeger, this hotel is so designed that even when you are in the smallest room, which is very small, you will pay more attention to the lamp or the screen-printed canvas over the bed. Each room has its own VCR, and when you arrive, you will find fresh flowers. If you have been indulging at the Dean & DeLuca gourmet shop in the lobby or at the popular Whiskey Bar, you can work out in the fitness center or assuage your guilt by getting down to work in the business center. In the Paramount Hotel: Mezzanine, Whiskey, Dean & DeLuca. Disabled guests need to make arrangements in advance.

Nelson Tower

450 Seventh Avenue

[H. Craig Severance] was completed in 1931 as the tallest building in the Garment District with its 46 storeys, although today it is dwarfed by the nearby slab of 1 Penn Plaza. The building has a rectangle base of white stone, from which the simple triple setbacks of mid-facade rise, with white stonework emphasizing each setback. Each section of the facade has spandrels of mid-tone brown stone -- as opposed to the light brown limestone of the vertical striping -- with differing decor. The tower rises uninterrupted to the flat top at 160 m, the top floors having small openings and niches of almost ornamental nature.
