“Another Great Stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

Overnight stay was great. Doorman was very friendly. Check-in was very fast and the staff was very friendly. Room was very clean and comfortable. Location was perfect with great public transportation, restaurants, and many places to shop. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor. No noise from the hallways.

Absolutely wonderful and accommodating. Left something in valeted auto and bell staff retrieved promptly and happily. Central to downtown everything ...room very comfortable...parking fee a little high and posted check in time 4:00 pm (could be earlier if you ask)...Staff fabulous. Will stay here again and again.

Stayed here at Paramount Portland for 4 nights and it was great value for money. For only $120 per night got a spacious room on the 6th floor overlooking the square in front of the hotel. Had a spa bath in the bathroom and free wifi included in the price. Very central location and basically caught the tram service everywhere

It's a little spare, in lobby and in the room, but this is refreshing. I asked for a nice room and we got one, They weren't busy on a Sunday in early January. We had a corner room, top floor and could see forever. Service was excellent. We took advantage of the great deals on travelportland.com. Downtown hotels with decent rates, including parking (huge!) and continental breakfast. Even a booklet of coupons. I like their location, close to Pioneer Place, the main square, and to the Portland Art Museum. We'd try it again.

Room Tip: try for a corner room if they aren't busy

Green Features: They are strong on the environment. I confess I sometimes find annoying all the reminders to reuse towels, etc. But that's my evil twin talking

Stayed in the Paramount for 2 nights in a room on the 12th floor. A great hotel for a great price! Perfectly situated in the city center of Portland with everything you need around. We had a basic room which looked great and had everything in it, even a bubble bath. Can recommend this hotel to everyone.

I was surprised at how EXTREMELY Basic the rooms at the Paramount hotel are.
I did not expect to pay hundreds of dollars a night for a tiny, dark, bare bones hotel room with a moldy shower curtain.

I was hoping for a clean spa like bathroom, but that is not the case here. The shower curtain was moldy, and the towel bar on the wall had a HUGE dent in it. You will not find personal toiletries waiting for you at the Paramount, the rooms have large pump bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel on the wall of the shower. No bath robes here, but you will find four small scratchy bath towels.

The location is nice, however the Paramount hotel is a complete disappointment. The hotel rooms are worn, and the decor feels dated. The property It is in definite need of a renovation.

Green Features: The Paramount eco practices are less about being environmentally friendly, and all about saving the company money while giving an excuse to offer less amenities to the guests.

We stayed at this Portland Paramount a couple of days ago and was an disappointment. Partly it was my fault because my husband had warned me. I naively thought with an identical name to a renowned New York hotel, I expected it was part of that same hotel group -- NO, it's Not !!

Yes, I know - quite silly of me given that I paid on average $139 a night with the crazy price for parking in their garage & tax, So came to $198 a night.
Our King Executive Room is very small, it seem like it used to be some worn down hotel with black spots in the jet tub jets ... gross.

And there were Powder Coffee Creamer in the room. How many Real coffee drinkers will use powder creamer ??

I went downstairs to the hotel restaurant to ask for some Real fresh creamer and that Asian waitress told me I have to pay $1.50 for it.

Really ?? I am a guest of your hotel and already paid $198 a night, and you still too cheap to give me one oz of creamer ? !!

My husband & I travel often and we have always tipped very well when comes to great customer service. But I am Not spending another Dollar here.

Thank god there's a Starbucks right next door.. And you can guess the rest ..
