“Beautiful affordable room in the heart of big box shopping downtown Portland.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Lovely clean room with engaging helpful staff. Safe area near the big stores but within walking distance to all of 'don't miss' attractions of downtown Portland. Easy access to airport trains. Slept like a log on their wonderful pillows.

We only stayed one night but were very happy with our room. Staff was great and very helpfull. They were more than willing to assist us in any way. Nice room with a super comfortable bed. Balconey was not what we expected, it was really small and looked into peoples apartments across the street. Other than that it was a nice place and we would stay there again.

Stayed two nights in the heart of the city. We loved accesd to downtown and Oearl district. Had one issue with the room which was corrected immediately. Enjoyed the views. Restaraunt menu looked super but did not have a chance to try it.

We were looking for a place close to downtown. This hotel was just the ticket! The staff was friendly and efficient. We had a room on the 12th floor. Giant bathroom with a shower AND a jet tub. Adequate counter space. The room was large and well appointed. Decor is attractive and the art is Portland related. Good wi-fi service. Director's Park is right across the street. It gives you a great area outside if the weather is nice. Valet service was super and very quick.
The hotel is just far enough away from the core of downtown to be quiet. We even had the windows open at night! We had one very minor problem with the bathroom sink, but that was taken care of as well as could be done. It did not detract from our stay, and I highly recommend the Paramount. We will be back!

I love staying at the Paramount when I am in Portland. It is just across from the major downtown stores, such as Nordstrom, close to Starbucks and within walking distance to almost everything downtown! What is further away is easily available on the Max. The Paramount also has beautiful views of the city, and wonderful customer service! Parking is by valet which is a little spendy however the low price of a nice hotel makes it balance out. I love to go shopping and spend the night, being able to rest in a hotel at night that is close by rather than rushing back to Salem when I am tired. Also a perfect place to stay during the Christmas season--close to Pioneer Square, the city Christmas tree, and lights everywhere!

Room Tip: Corner rooms are small but have better views and a small hot tub in the bathroom. I prefer non corne...

From the valet service when you arrive to all the exceptionally professional and attentive service throughout the stay, this hotel was terrific. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, the decor throughout the hotel is welcoming and unique. We loved the framed photos of Portland area landmarks in the hallways. The location is perfect for shopping and being in the heart of the city.
The reputation of excellence is well deserved. I look forward to coming back!

The Wife and I both agreed we had to write a review for this hotel. We spent a romantic long-weekend in Portland (where it all began for us) and the Paramount made the experience wonderful. Beautiful and modern hotel, comfortable and excellent staff. I think everyone would pretty much agree that Pioneer Square is the hub of downtown Portland and the Paramount is practically across the street from Pioneer Square thus placing the hotel in perfect location. Easy walking to entertainment and restaurants, the Light Rail Trains around the Square, Street Car a few blocks North, and the downtown Bus Loop a few blocks South. There is very little parking in downtown Portland but the Paramount does offer valet parking for a daily fee... trust me, it's worth every penny. We came and went a lot driving to our old hangouts in Hillsdale, Multnomah Village, Orenco, and some new spots in the Killingsworth and Alberta neighborhoods... the valet service was fantastic. We didn't have time to try the restaurant in the hotel but 4 years ago we had dinner there with the kids and it was excellent (Asian food). Great place to stay... we'll be back.
