“Convenient location, great hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

I really enjoyed my stay at the Paramount. It was in a primo-location for both my business needs and personal enjoyment. Pike Place, Seattle Center, Pioneer Square were all within a short, enjoyable walk through a gorgeous city. The hotel had everything I needed -- coffee in the morning, a great shower, comfortable bed. I guess the only issue was the internet died one night -- the staff was quick to remedy the situation. Based on previous reviews, sounds like it is a frequent issue and perhaps the hotel should invest in a better solution. Other than that, spectacular!

Room Tip: Our room faced the street and it was not a big deal -- street noise was barely audible (we were also...

Our first trip to Seattle and we loved the Paramount. It had a great location and friendly staff. The room was quiet and well kept. Only minor complaint is the price was a little too expensive for us. However we would stay here again as I would say it was worth every penny.

clean room

excellent customer service
I wish there had been something other than complimentary coffee in the lobby in the morning. The drain in our shower was very slow and water filled the basin but in the grand scheme of things it didn't little to detract from our overall satisfaction.

The Paramount is what I call a 'just right' hotel. Not so large that it's impersonal and not so small that it is lacking in amenities, so it's 'just right', as is the price. It's location is in the heart of downtown so there are lot's of dining and shopping options. There is a small restaurant attached to the hotel for a convenient meal as meal. Check in is quick, warm and efficient. The rooms are well appointed for the business traveler (free Wi-Fi!) and the furnishings are of high quality. Hallways are spacious, clean and well lit. Finally, the doorman is super attentive and helpful, going out of his way to help. The hotel is a terrific value and recommended for a stay in downtown Seattle.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms don't have a great view so if that's important to you, just ask.

Very friendly, welcoming staff who are keen to do all that they can do to help. Bedrooms are bright, modern, well furnished and kept very clean. Beds very comfortable. Food and service at the attached Dragonfish are also very good, whether it be for breakfast or an evening meal. However, there are also a multitude of other eating places within easy walking distance of the hotel.

Like many hotels, the under window airconditioning was very noisy when the fan switched in and I found it less disturbing to set the fan to run constantly.

Compared to other hotels of this standard in Seattle Downtown, the rates are also very reasonable.

The only real downside was the free wifi that dropped to absolutely pedestrian speeds (5Mbps or less) at busy times to the extent that it became unusable. That would really present a significant problem to guests who need to access the internet in order to work and, as such, is something the management at The Paramount need to address as a matter of priority.

Room Tip: Choose outer room, on a high floor for a quiter stay.

My husband and I just got back last night from a weekend trip to Seattle celebrating our 10 year anniversary. I chose the Paramount Hotel after reading the great reviews and seeing just how close it was to everything! I had a really bad migraine on the drive there, so it was very nice how quickly they were able to get us into our room. Very friendly staff, and we so appreciated the upgraded room! Everything was VERY clean, and we loved having a corner room with double windows. There was complimentary water and Vanilla soda in the refrigerator, and it tasted so good after a long drive with a migraine. We ate breakfast at the Dragonfish Cafe and the service was good, the food was pretty good as well. If we hadn't of been so hungry we would have walked a little further to a place that specialized in breakfast though! We will definitely be back, thank you Paramount for a wonderful weekend!!!

Quality and clean rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Wife was attending convention and I had to work a bit. She was able to walk between quickly. I enjoyed the free wifi and the comfortable desk chair in the room while I worked. The speakerphone came in handy for a conference call. Lots of nearby eating options, especially the "local" bagel place a block away where I got breakfast. Didn't try the restaurant but bar was good. Pike's market is five minute walk away. The last night we took a short walk to First Hill, I think, to eat at a recommended pub, Quinn's. A little shady over there but full of youngsters to still feel safe. 15 minute walk. Would stay there again, thanks Paramount!
