Everyone at this hotel was very nice. Room 407 was very clean and comfortable. The pack and play for our baby was clean and assembled in the room upon arrival. Great location!

LL restroom changing table could use a deep clean.

Room Tip: Room 407 was nice.

We stayed here two nights. The location is fabulous and the hotel is beautifully appointed. We had a Queen room overlooking the park, very nice. You can walk to everything and the streetcar and rail are close by. Parking can be tricky as the hotel does not have their own parking but will valet park for $29/night. We found easy parking of the street after 7pm and there are reasonably priced lots close by. Just ask at the desk and they will direct you. This is a very nice hotel if you want to be close to everything in downtown Portland.

Room Tip: They offer a 55 + rate.

Very good location as Portland is a city that walks and bikes everywhere. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, and the room was very clean and very comfortable in every respect. The concierge gave us excellent advice for dinner options as well as what sites to see in a limited amount of time. The adjoining restaurant was great for breakfast and a quick lunch. Some of the very finest restaurants were nearby eliminating the need for a cab. Very nice experience.

Room Tip: Higher floors maybe less street noise.

This is a great downtown location and close to public streetcar transportation and the Max Light Rail. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I recommend upgrading to a room with a small balcony that allows you to walk out and overlook the park directly in front. We were able to experience a fashion show in the park from our balcony.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony overlooking the park.

The Paramount Hotel has a great location and staff were wonderful, especially Ed, the Concierge. He was always there to offer suggestions on places to eat or directions (and takes great group photos). The rooms are very comfortable, beds are great, and rooms are superbly appointed (love the gilt, sheer curtains). We had a room with a balcony. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Just spent 2 nights at the Paramount and was very happy with my choice. The hotel is centrally located and walking distance to the major stores and other attractions. All the staff was very friendly. We used the valet parking and made it easier driving back at night as we didn't have to worry about parking (though is was $29 a night). Starbucks is right at the corner so had breakfast there everyday. It was my first time to Portland and really enjoyed myself.
