As I booked the Paramount, the map made it look like it was on the fringe of things. Not so. In truth, every hotel within the 'downtown zone' has a fantastic location. Its just a matter of how much one is willing to spend. And in Portland, discount travel sites are NOT going to be of much help. $150 (if you're very lucky) to 'the sky is the limit' should be expected.
But I digress....
Paramount Portland is a wonderfully priced, wonderfully situated hotel. Located just inches from the Art and History museum, inches from Pioneer Sq, inches from the Farmers Market, and no more than 3 lite-rail stops from the Saturday Market, Old Town, and the Pearl District. There are lite-rail stops just a short block away.
Right acoss the street from an urban park (and Starbucks), the Paramount is an elegant, beautifully appointed hotel. Rooms are nicely sized and very stylishly decorated. Elevators are plentiful and the staff extremely attentive.
The hotel features all the expected amenities including a well followed sushi restaurant, and an asian themed lounge,both on the first floor. I had a very comfortable stay and would happily return.
Travelers Tip: Valet-ing your car is virtually anavoidable in Portland. And no hotel is going to let you off for less than $30 a day. But once you come to grips with this extra cost, you will enjoy Portland all the more. And the Paramount is a great place it start.
