What a great, friendly place to stay! I loved how there was almost always someone waiting at the front door to open it when I left the hotel or came back from an outing. They always seemed to recognize me and open the door and greet me! Rooms were spacious and very clean. Staff was prompt with my requests and check-in & out was timely. I would definitely recommend staying here if your wanting a good value for your money. Its located in a nice spot down town within walking distance to lots of shopping and goings-on. It was lovely to hear the live music playing in Director Park almost daily!!! A really charming overall experience and I will definitely be staying here when I come to Portland next time!

We were first-time visitors to Portland, and had researched a lot of hotels. The Paramount is very conveniently located, an easy walk to restaurants, theaters (one is right across the street!), and of course--Powell's! The staff is very friendly. We were able to access public transportation easily. The bed was very comfortable. We were on the 9th floor with windows to two streets, lots of light but almost no noise, even though one day we were there was a Bastille day festival right across the street. Starbucks is on the corner, the Flying Elephant deli steps away, as well as other great dining. **a Portland tip if you drive there: either by law or custom, cars are expected to stop for pedestrians**

I really enjoyed my stay at the Paramount Hotel. We stayed for 4 nights, got in very late (after midnight) on the first night but we were great by a helpful guest relations rep, who even made arrangements for our car to be valet'ed.
Super clean room, fantastic shower (toilet was a tad small), comfy bed & soft linens.

Hotel makes getting around Portland quite easy, lots of restaurants within walking distance.

Free wifi (that actually worked!), fabulous room service (food arrived hot!), restaaurant, Tasting East was quite good as well.

Would definitely return.

I had a great experience at the Paramount. I got an unadvertised price on Expedia. The room was on the 14th floor. Other reviewers talked about noise from the stairwell. I was right by the stairs and had no issues. It was quiet. The A/C was working great. Everything was within walking distance and the weather was perfect! The bed was super comfy.

We only stayed one night in this hotel, wished we had planned stay longer. It really is the best location and our room was fantastic. Large room with huge bed, exceptionally clean and well appointed. Free wifi which works very well. Would definitely return

Overall, I enjoyed my stay in the hotel and would definitely recommend it to others or stay again. The rooms were very comfortable and the staff was super helpful. The location was great, with easy access to public transportation and walking distance from several restaurants and shops. Peal District is also only a ten minute walk away. Overall, great experience.

I stayed at the Paramount and Hotel Monaco in Portland. The Paramount was a great value at ~ $200 per night. The room was well appointed, clean and spacious. I had a nice room over looking the park on Taylor St. on the second floor. It was never noisy and had a neat balcony. This hotel is located right in the middle of downtown so everything is close and within walking distance.

The hotel staff was very helpful and even offered advise to save $ on parking. If you are going to leave your car parked (which you can with Portland's great transportation system) use the local parking garages down the street especially on the weekends because they are less than half the cost of the hotel.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms on Taylor street are far from the elevators.
