Paradox Hotel is the ninth studio album by the progressive rock band The Flower Kings, released on April 4, 2006. It is also the band's fourth studio double-CD.

This is the band's only studio album with the drummer Marcus Liliequist (he is also on the live album Instant Delivery). While most of the band's other albums were mainly based on compositions by Roine Stolt and Tomas Bodin, this album shows more songwriting participation by other members.
