Stayed two nights. Very clean room. Staff very, very friendly. Centrally located so easy to get to just about anywhere in Portland using the streetcar or light rail. Check in and check out was quick. The farmers market at Pioneer Square and the park directly behind the Paramount had excellent fruits/vegetables and baked goods? Will definitely stay here again!

We stayed at the Paramount Hotel for just two nights (would have been happy to be there longer). The hotel is very well located, next to Director Park and within walking distance to the Saturday Market and Farmer's market, all the major shopping areas, and the museums. The Hotel is elegantly appointed, modern but comfortable. There is free Wifi in the rooms. Bedding was excellent, and the noise level was low. We were on the top floor, and could occasionally hear some street noise but no hallway noise. The room has a mini fridge (empty), coffeepot, and ours had a Jacuzzi tub. There is a small gym, but we did not use it. Valet parking is currently $31/day but there are many lots nearby for about $12-13. If you are not planning on coming and going a lot, I recommend self-parking.

Overall, lovely hotel and I would stay here again.

Room Tip: I think the higher rooms are quieter.

We stayed here July 20-23. I had asked for a early check in and a high floor since I had read other reviews of street noise. I got both! The only problem was the group of ladies next door the last two nights that did not respect other guests late at night. Very noisy when they came it. We just turned the AC lower to drown the noise! Doorman was very nice as well as front desk. Very knowledgeable of restaurants. TE has a great breakfast - wonderful French Toast!

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor and hope you don't get noisy neighbors late at night! There was no pool a...

I travel to Portland several times a year and almost always stay at the Paramount. The central location is very convenient, I've always received excellent service from the staff, and I really enjoy the Te restaurant. I highly recommend the Paramount for stays in central Portland.

Delightful bed and pillows and high-quality linens; simple, tasteful decor; large size room and bath, convenient location, exercise room with towels and water (nice!).

The hotel also has doormen which is more useful than I'd ever thought. They were available about 50 percent of the time though.

Price is about $20 more than I wanted to pay hence the 4 stars.

The Paramount was ideal for us. It,s situated centrally in downtown, a short walk to everything we wanted to see and do.

It's small to medium in size, an older property that I understand was recently renovated. Our room on the 7th floor was quiet and roomy, and well equipped, with coffee maker, refrigerator, flat screen TV, iron & ironing board. The beds were very comfortable and clean. The bathroom was spacious and clean, again well equipped.

The staff were invariably courteous, helpful and friendly, and the reception personnel welcoming and informative. (I note a previous customer felt the doormen were not always available, which is not the case in our experience.)

We'd definitely stay again.

I booked this room though a travel agent (american express). I did not get the company rate for the weekend and had to pay $60 more on the weekend. This rate also did not include breakfast. They refused to comp $4. That is unacceptable.

Room Tip: The lower floors have street noise. Trash trucks come by very early. I had a room on the 2nd and 9th...
