We just got back from four nights at the Paramount. Booking through Travel Portland we got complimentary valet parking (normally $29/night) and a $14 breakfast voucher each morning (breakfast was okay, not anything special...we only redeemed it once).
The hotel is in great condition; rooms have been recently renovated and are extremely clean. Linens are smooth and soft, and the bed was extremely comfortable. Plenty of pillows were provided for us weary travelers. We reserved an executive corner room with a walk-in shower and jacuzzi tub, which was quite relaxing on tired muscles. The room is equipped with standard amenities (iron, fridge, hair dryer) and free wifi. The room was also quite large.
The downside: several other reviewers have pointed out that noise level from the street can be loud at times. We requested a quiet room and received one on the tenth floor; this did diminish the noise level some, but city noise is city noise. I was woken up two nights in a row by garbage trucks who seemed to stay perpetually in reverse (beep, beep!), but troubleshooting this by leaving the air fan on helped. Also, we had difficulty titrating the heat to keep the room at a comfortable level; the room seemed to swing from hot to cold fairly fast. Adding or removing blankets helped with this problem, but it did require a bit more effort on our behalf than we're used to at home. This was really more of a minor annoyance than anything else.
The hotel is in a great location near lots of great restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, a movie theater, and in easy walking distance to Powell's. It's also located close to public transport. Also, if you're tired and don't feel like sitting down to dinner, check out the Flying Elephant--they have a great selection of take-out foods.
We were very pleased with our stay here and would definitely stay here again.
