“Terrific location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

My company arranged accommodations here for a two day business meeting held in Portland. Since we had family in Portland we stayed the weekend to visit & explore the city. This hotel is fantastic for it's location to dining and shopping; everything within walking distance. The room was comfortable and well appointed. Loved the toiletry amenities in the shower vs those annoying little bars of soap and small bottles of shampoo; small thing but appreciated. The lighting over the mirror was ghastly from a woman's point of view. Maid service was spot on. The only curious thing I noted was that the noise buffer between floors was almost non-existent. I could hear folks upstairs using their toilet! And not just the flushing..weird for relatively new construction. If you have a car, park a block away for 1/2 off the hotel valet but remember Sundays they open at 10 a.m. if you have an early flight!

A weekend in Portland was shared with another soul in the room. Two queen size beds with a mountain of pillows isn't too shabby. The room itself was decent size and comfortable. The bathroom did the trick in a tasteful manner. I just wish hotels would stop using water-saving shower heads. It takes a year and a day to rinse yourself clean of any shampoo or soap on your body. While at it throw in a fan for the bathroom so I can have the fog lift before noon so I can shave at the sink. Come on, folks. You can be more service minded than this, right?

Moving on...the rest of the hotel was actually pleasantly decorated and the staff was pleasant. I would give this hotel another stay.

BluYooper, we appreciate your review! As part of our green initiatives we will continue to use water-saving shower heads, however, we are placing an order this week for different water saving shower heads which offer better pressure and a little more flow. We still have 2.2 gpm shower heads available and are happy to install upon request. Hope to have you back to try the new ones and let us know what you think!

My wife and I stayed here for our 21st Anniversary. We had a King Bed with a Park view. It was lovely and exactly what we were looking for as a romantic get away for the night. The hotel is within walking distance of many great restaurants and food carts. Check in and check out were easy. The room had a small fridge for keeping our wine cool and glasses to enjoy it in. We will stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in a Paramount room. We loved everything about this hotel. The location is great, we walked to many stores and places to eat. The room is fabulous with a large patio and a great view of the goings-on in the city below. We enjoyed room service for dinner and breakfast, the food was outstanding. The staff was great and had a room ready for early check in, which was so nice. We would definitely return.

We had a great first-time visit to Portland for five nights in late Sept. Our room had two big windows with a view of the Director's Park across the street. Fresh outside air filled the room, although there is thermostat-controlled heat and air. Cozy queen bed with large comfy pillows, attractive bathroom, spacious glass shower. Super clean and inviting. Downtown location perfect for us. We returned our rental car to the airport days before flying home to sample the easy modes of public transportation. We followed the "Walk to Cure ALS" on a sunny fall afternoon by the Willamette River and enjoyed the Sunday dance festival at Pioneer Courthouse Square. Lived in CA for 35 years and can't imagine why we'd never gone to Portland. Would highly recommend both the Paramount Hotel, and that visitors take the time to enjoy the fun small city that is Portland.

Room Tip: Upper floors have less noise from Director's Park on summer weekends. Corner rooms have two lar...

This is now our go to hotel when visiting Portland. It's within walking distance and/or streetcar ride of all downtown, the Pearl and Nob Hill shopping restaurants, bars and restaurants. Their staff is nice, friendly and helpful and their bed and pillows are soooo comfortable after a long day walking around a fun and interesting city! Check out their restaurant for happy hour specials where you can have fresh sushi, cool cocktails and great service for under 30.00 for two!

First time to Portland. Stayed at the Paramount for 2 nights. Excellent staff from the doorman, valet, front desk and housekeeping. Everyone always said enjoy your day. Stayed in the King Executive Park View. Great corner room, but the "park" view was a concrete gathering area, not what you would think a park view would be. But the room itself was quite large and so was the bathroom; with a large shower and spa tub. Everything was either within walking distance or a short ride on the trolley. Great local restaurants and shopping. We dined at Southpark right on the side street and Ristorante Roma, several blocks away. Both were great. Also went several times to The Elephant across the street (the store, not the one in the park) for snacks, breakfast and lunch. Alot of homemade goodies there.
