I have always wanted to stay at the Paramount and finally did with my teenage son. The lobby is very cool, as it was recently renovated. The staff are super nice and accomodationg. We got an upgrade from Jessie at the front desk.
The room was tiny but clean and the BR was very cool, european like.
The problem was the next morning. The shower and sink only had COLD WATER!!!!
When I called the front desk I was told that with all of the showers taken it happens and to let the water run for 15 minutes and it should warm up. Isn't that a waste of our precious water? Well we did and the tub wasn't draining properly and the water never warmed up!!!!!
My son took a cold shower standing in cold water and I couldn't think about doing it.
I told the front desk and he said he couldn't give me any credit on my room (which I paid $300/night) as I bokked through Hotels.com and it was prepaid. Since breakfast was over, he couldn't give me a voucher.. So that was it!
Stay at the hotel, but never be guaranteed on a hot shower!
