"Another stylish addition to an increasingly trendy neighbourhood" -- Fodor’s

Why We Love It

  • Daily happy hour from 4-8 p.m. in the bar
  • Less than a 10-minute walk from the Empire State Building and Macy’s
  • Most rooms have views of downtown or the Empire State Building
  • No gym on site, but guests have free access to nearby Blink Fitness


Located in Manhattan’s hip NoMad neighbourhood, the Paul Hotel is within a 15-minute walk of the city’s top attractions including the Empire State Building, Times Square and Madison Square Park. Eight major subway lines are within a five-block radius of the property, making downtown landmarks like the World Trade Center and uptown must-sees like Central Park easily accessible.

Modern rooms have big warehouse-style windows with graphic skylines etched on the curtains -- almost identical to the scene outside. Rooms feature Keurig coffee makers, framed aerial shots of city streets, work desks with Rolodexes full of neighbourhood tips and bedside dictionaries. Street noise can reach even the higher floors, but the hotel provides earplugs for light sleepers.

Each evening from 4-8 p.m. the hotel bar and restaurant hosts a happy hour. There is no gym on site, but guests receive free access to nearby Blink Fitness, including its group classes -- a big perk for active travellers unwilling to shell out big bucks for a pricey fitness class in the city.

From the press:
  • "From the north side of the building, there are gorgeous views of the Empire State Building" -- Fodor’s
  • "The Paul also has taken some style cues from its neighbours, creating chic (if small) spaces for guests" -- Frommer’s


General Guests receive 2 passes to Blink Fitness (2 blocks away).

Didn’t like that I couldn’t check out the night before. I’ve never experienced that before. One afternoon the maid was in my room at 5:30pm. As mentioned on the booking site, there is construction directly across the street and they are working early, I’m thankful it was mentioned.

The only thing that was kind of a bummer was the water pressure and temperature. Sometimes the hottest setting would be like warm and the pressure was always really weak

Other Comments
when I booked hotel requested early check in if possible. we got there and place was very quite, employee at front desk was not the most pleasant, we asked about early check in and he said it would be $40 extra .. we declined and checked our bag and left ... come to find out the hotel was empty that weekend and should have been no problem to check us in early .. the girl who checked us out was wonderful .. overall not a very welcoming atmosphere, very sterile in the bar restaurant area

Rooms are a little small but space was very efficiently used. My family was fine, especially as we spent most of our time exploring the city.

Quiet room with fridge, safe and Keurig coffee. Comfortable beds and excellent quality pillows and linens. Modern rooms.
Other Comments
Check in is 4 pm. No exceptions! Also the "restaurant" is really only open for breakfast. The hotel takes a security deposit on credit card at time of check in which does not get refunded until several days after check out. This is not unusual in NY, but inconvenient.
