“Wonderful Location”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Very good location as Portland is a city that walks and bikes everywhere. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful, and the room was very clean and very comfortable in every respect. The concierge gave us excellent advice for dinner options as well as what sites to see in a limited amount of time. The adjoining restaurant was great for breakfast and a quick lunch. Some of the very finest restaurants were nearby eliminating the need for a cab. Very nice experience.

Room Tip: Higher floors maybe less street noise.

This is a great downtown location and close to public streetcar transportation and the Max Light Rail. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I recommend upgrading to a room with a small balcony that allows you to walk out and overlook the park directly in front. We were able to experience a fashion show in the park from our balcony.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony overlooking the park.

Thank you for your review LizB00. So happy you were able to catch one of the many events that take place at the park and you didn’t even need to leave your room!

The Paramount Hotel has a great location and staff were wonderful, especially Ed, the Concierge. He was always there to offer suggestions on places to eat or directions (and takes great group photos). The rooms are very comfortable, beds are great, and rooms are superbly appointed (love the gilt, sheer curtains). We had a room with a balcony. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Just spent 2 nights at the Paramount and was very happy with my choice. The hotel is centrally located and walking distance to the major stores and other attractions. All the staff was very friendly. We used the valet parking and made it easier driving back at night as we didn't have to worry about parking (though is was $29 a night). Starbucks is right at the corner so had breakfast there everyday. It was my first time to Portland and really enjoyed myself.

Me and my husband stayed here for our one year anniversary. It is a nice place, but nothing spectacular. the water pressure in the shower was very weak. The jetted tub was amazing. we got the sweets for your sweet package and the chocolates where delish. we told the man at the desk it was our anniversary when we checked in and he told us we should have called in advance to let them know because they would have made special arrangements for us, but that the lady that does that was off duty and no one else would bother. I thought it was a little rude that they said that knowing it could have been a better stay kinda put a damper on the stay. the restaurant in the lobby was great would eat there again. I would stay here again too I will just know to call and book a room and not do it online because there is no extras when ordering on line.

Room Tip: just tell them it is a special occasion and i guess they will do more for you. don't just order...

The Paramount is centrally located in downtown Portland, near to public transport, attractions and a food cart pod (which are main PDX attractions!). Our room had view to Director Park, which was nice to look at, but it did get a bit noisy early in the morning. We didn't have any trouble finding a parking spot on the street at night, and there are plenty of reasonably priced parking lots nearby for the day. I took one star (circle) off my rating because of the noise and because of the annoying hotel channel on which the TV is stuck for the first two minutes after being turned on. It might sound petty, but it really bugged me. Other then those little things, we really enjoyed our 4-night stay!

Room Tip: Some floors have no ice or vending machines, if that is of importance to you.

Kerenym, thank you for the review. We recently installed an upgraded movie system which is also our TV menu page and should only offer a slight delay (2-3 seconds) as the software configures before you can change channels. I apologize for the annoyance this caused you. Would you mind e-mailing me your room number so I can have the TV looked at.
Safe Travels,

The Paramount Hotel is a excellent location, friendly, helpful staff. The rooms are so quite, never heard any noise from either the street or other rooms. The bedding is soooo comfortable and room features and amenities are very nice also.
The Valet parking is excellent and fast.
