“Great location, friendly staff, large rooms”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Overall we were very satisfied with the hotel. The location is great- within walking distance to many interesting areas- Pioneer Square, the funky Saturday Market, and the Willamette River Walk at the waterfront. The hotel staff were quite friendly and helpful and assisted us with making reservations for a great excursion. The only problem was that the toilet overflowed twice, and the water pressure in the shower was intermittently low. The staff was very responsive to this, and assisted us immediately, but it took a few tries before they got it all fixed. The rooms are very large and impeccably clean. I would definitely stay here again.

Great hotel, clean spacious room and bathroom. We were three adults in a two queen bed room and did not feel crowded. Loved the Starbucks coffee for the in room coffee maker. Staff were very friendly. Location was great. No complaints, I will not hesitate to book this hotel again.

We just finished a 5 night stay at the Paramount and we had a great experience! All of the staff members were very friendly and service-focused. The rooms were clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. The location was very central to everything in Portland, including shopping, restaurants and public transportation. There was a great little restaurant right across the street in director park that had great sandwiches and a perfect lunch spot. Access to the freeways from this location was also great, making it easy to get out of the city for day trips. If we are in Portland again, we will definitely return to this hotel and would highly recommend it to anyone visitin Portland!

The staff are universally friendly, helpful and happy. Over the years staying here I recognize them now, so they are staying at the property, always a good sign. The location is perfect, the rooms are updated and very business friendly. It is nice to actually have a home away from home in a big city.

Room Tip: The view from the North side is wonderful, over Directors Part and Portland skyline

We stayed here three nights in June and were delighted with the Paramount. The location can't be beat. It's in the heart of downtown and most everything (including the excellent public transit system) is within walking distance. Our king room was beautiful and spotless. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly and the concierge bent over backwards to answer our questions and offer advice on sightseeing and restaurants. A plus for us was the Starbucks just a few steps away. There is a great asian restaurant in the lobby which makes it very convenient if you want a good meal but don't want to leave the hotel. A word of advice if you have a car. The hotel charges $29./day to park your car probably at the same place you can park it yourself for $15./day. The garage is also just steps away from the lobby. We will definitely stay here again if we're back in Portland one day.

Paramount hotel has a very central location in Downtown Portland. I have been there three times and all the times I was happy and glad. Cleaning is very well and Stuff is very helpful and friendly.
They have a very nice bar inside and security is also very good. you can walk easily everywhere from hotel.

Room Tip: Upper floors have a better view.
