“Pleasant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

I had a very pleasant stay at the Paramount Hotel in Portland, Oregon. Just two blocks from the light rail airport run which stops at 10th and Galleria. Staff is friendly. Hotel is very clean. Room was quiet. Bathroom contained a surprise! No more little bottles... YEAH! Shampoo, conditioner and body wash are all in a dispenser on the wall... see photo. I always find little bottles are so hard to use. I love this environmental friendly idea of putting everything in a dispenser. Just make sure you wear your glasses to read the labels before you bathe that way you will be sure to use the right product for the right purpose!

The Paramount is located in downtown Portland just a few minutes' walk from Pioneer Courthouse Square. The rooms are spacious and clean, the bathrooms are also a good size and very clean, and the staff is friendly and helpful. You are steps away from shopping, dining and entertainment, and the Portland Art Museum is only a short stroll away. I very much enjoyed my stay at the Portland and would definitely stay there again.

I was in Portland for only 2 nights for a meeting. The hotel was extremely comfortable and the staff was accommodating. It is conveniently located making it easy to explore this interesting city on meeting breaks; close to excellent restaurants, stores, and the Light Rail. Free wifi in the room. I will definitely stay here on my next trip to Portland.

Great town and this is the best central place to stay -- close to shopping and cool inner-city park. Travelled with five families from Mercer Island, boy went to the NCAA regionals and girls to the Musical. Walked over the Westin, a little nicer but $100 more per night .

We spent several days during the Rose Festival in this hotel and were very, very happy with our choice. Our room was cozy, almost to the point of tight, but so well appointed that we didn't mind. The bed was comfortable. A great workspace with plenty of wifi and plugs. A big chair for relaxing. A nice view of the city out the window. Right across the street from Director's Park. Every member of the staff I talked to was polite and eager to please. Nice workout room. So much that we wanted to see was within walking distance and if you couldn't walk, then public transportation was a block away. The valet parking at the hotel was pricey, but also a block away is a huge public parking structure that is very affordable. The lobby is small, but very upscale. The bar seems to be a favorite with locals and was often full of merry makers, but we only walked through. The restaurant was Asian, which is not our favorite, so we never had a meal there. They said they had American breakfasts, but by the time we found that out, we'd discovered the Flying Elephant Deli which is just steps away and we fell in love with it. There's really nothing negative to be said about the place. Were I headed back to Portland, I wouldn't even shop for a hotel, I would just go back to The Paramount. It has everything a traveler could want or need. (OH and if you're going for the Grand Floral Parade, the parade passes just steps away, so it's great for that, too.)

What makes this hotel so wonderful is it's cleanliness and location. We found that everything we wanted to see was accessed by walking in the same direction from the hotel. Powells books, Nordstrom rack and other stores, parks, waterfront, Voodoo donuts... all straight out from the hotel. The rooms were clean and updated and the beds were comfortable. We stayed on the 6th floor and did not have any issues with noise whatsoever.

Parking is expensive (all over Portland, really). Rather than pay the valet fees, right across the street from this hotel you'll find the most reasonably priced garage and it is well lit and easy to access.

We'll certainly be back to the Paramount!

Room Tip: Others have said to request a room higher up. We followed that advice and were placed on the 10th fl...

The Paramount Hotel has a very good downtown location convenient to most of the areas in the city. The property itself is well maintained and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. When I asked for an early morning cab to the airport, they booked me one and dropped off a written confirmation in my room. The doorman and concierge were great with directions and suggestions for local sights and restaurants.

If you are a bit adventurous gastronomically, the food trucks on the square just North a few blocks of the hotel are fantastic. Portland good trucks are something special--sort of like a United Nations of food--Thai, Chinese, Korean, Middle Eastern, BBQ, Asian Fusion, Vegetarian--you name it, they have it. Try it for lunch or a snack, and I guarantee you will be back for dinner. Most trucks are open mainly for lunch and in the afternoon until about 4PM (about two dozen) and about 8-9 or so were open later for dinner. Prices were very cheap--about $8-9 for a full meal with drink.

The restaurant in the hotel, the TE Restaurant, has a good breakfast menu with some Asian options, a tofu omelet, and other breakfast fare served in a friendly environment.

My room on the second floor in the front suffered a bit from some random noise of garbage trucks in the early morning, but was otherwise well appointed, including a jet-style tub and a very comfortable bed. Temperature of the water in the shower was not very hot, but hot enough. Cooling and heating system in the room was a bit motel-like, blowing hotel air and a bit noisy, but this may have been an older unit.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on low floors at the front of the building on Taylor St.
