I took my girls to Portland for a Christmas shopping trip and selected the Paramount Hotel because of its proximity to downtown. It worked out perfectly as we could walk everywhere and leave our car parked. We found all of the staff very friendly and helpful. The room was great and we would definitely stay here again.

Great downtown location. The guys at the front door are wonderful!! The bed was the best bed I have slept in a hotel, EVER!!! Lots of restaurants close by. Rooms need some updating, a little TLC. The jetted bath tub jets were filthy dirty, who knows the last time they had been cleaned. Yuck! Otherwise great stay.

For the most part, I loved this hotel. It smelled heavenly inside and was absolutely beautiful. The concierge recommended the perfect restaurant and even arranged for a complimentary appetizer to be sent to our table when we were there. My only complaints were that valet was a expensive and the young man who checked us in was a bit of... More

We stayed for one night at the Paramount Hotel which is situated just a block and a half away from the Arlene Schnitzer Symphony Concert Hall. Perfect touchstone with valet parking. We stayed on the 14th floor overlooking the Elephant Park, which boasts a life size chess board and pieces. We felt like angels looking down upon the people playing!... More

Great location close to shopping, restaurants, entertainment. Corner room on 14th floor was clean. On arrival, the concierge was helpful with luggage...we asked for ideas on where we could enjoy a Thanksgiving meal and he said he was getting off work and would get back to us in the morning.....11 am....still waiting. I took care of it myself. He failed... More

When you first arrive your impression is "really nice"! If you aren't looking for anything other than your typical room, this is it. Except for the price! Just a tad overrated!! It's very clean and the location is great, but that is about it. Nothing to ooh and aaah over, by any means. The valet service was awesome and super... More

we stayed at this hotel for the weekend and we are pretty happy with everything. The location is very good, walking distance to major shopping and restaurants. We tried the Italian restaurant cross the street, very good food. Also, we discovered this japanese restaurant called Shigezo, like 2 blocks away from the hotel, it was simply amazing. very good food.... More

Friday thru Monday. Yet again we had a nice room on 15th floor - no noise, well serviced, clean, comfortable with high speed wifi. Swank for breakfast & dinner, Swine the bar with bar food. Both good. Ed the Concierge is still there - NEVER lets us down. Just takes care of everything. If you have never tried this hotel... More

This hotel is all it holds itself out to be. Comfortable, clean, good location, friendly and helpful staff, safe neighborhood, two minutes away from public transportation/tram. Paramount will be my regular Portland place to stay. I travel a lot for business and rate this hotel as good as any you could ever want to experience for a good trip.

I do love this hotel have stayed here four times now. Love the breakfasts, love the fact theres a jacuzzi in the bathroom, staff always look after me, wifi usable. Easy walk to all locations and two minute walk to the tram. Older style hotel, not quite boutique and you feel very safe.
