“Nice place to stay”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Lovely clean room. Great soaps and towels. We had a huge corner room. The television did not work all the time, and there was a lot of noise coming from outside during the night. Otherwise, it was almost like a 5 star hotel. Very comfortable bed too.

This was a great hotel. I book here often because of the beds and pillows. I get the best sleep on their beds and I love their pillows (so soft and comfy). The hotel is right downtown where all the action is. It's clean and the hotel staff are very nice and accomodating.

Room Tip: They're all good.

We came to this hotel after a 35 minutes direct train connection from the SeaTac Airport to Westlake station. From the station it takes about seven minutes to walk to the hotel. We stayed at the hotel two times with a few days interval, and in the meantime the hotel took care of one our bags that we did not need to bring with us. Super service. We stayed in two different rooms that both had a king size bed, walk in shower and a separate room for toilet. Free internet acces is of course included in the room rate. The colors of the rooms are dull, but it was relaxing as the sun was shining outside. The bed mattress was hard in a pleasent way and together with the soundproof windows we had good night sleeps even though our rooms both times were directed to Pine Street. The Dragonfish restaurant adjacent to the hotel serves good breakfast at a reasonable price.

The Paramount Hotel in Seattle is a great place to stay for a few days. Its facilities are good, the King size bed was the most comfortable one weve had in 5 weeks of travelling in USA and Canada, the staff respond well to requests and the price is reasonable. Its close to the Pike St Markets and there are lots of eating places nearby. We enjoyed our stay. Jenny & John

We arrived and were greeted warmly and quickly by the bell staff. Check in was efficient. Room was beautiful with a "peek a boo"view of the sound. Loved the bathroom with the walk in shower, oversized tub, separate room for toilet. Really appreciated that there were 2 bottles of water and seltzer in the refrigerator, as we arrived back at our room very thirsty after a 30 minute walk back to the hotel after a late night concert. Had a drink in the small lounge at the attached restaurant before retiring to our room. Appreciated the refrigerator and the safe in the closet. Room service was outstanding- we used for our breakfast. Bought the bed and breakfast package which included a breakfast entree and drink of our choice and parking, as well. Thought the price was very reasonable compared to comparable hotels in the area. My husband and I will definitely return to this hotel.

Room Tip: We had an executive corner suite room and a peek a boo view of the sound and downtown.

Got a good rate through Hotel.com and found the Paramount to be a nice, modern hotel in a great location close (easy walking distance) to all that downtown Seattle has to offer. No hotel bar is a small downside.

I'm a little bit exhausted from writing Seattle reviews, so please forgive the list format and my distanced memories.

CONS:
-The shower pressure is not great
-The walls are thin-ish
-It's a short hotel (11 floors, I think?) so there's really no such thing as getting a room with a view. You're surrounded by city buildings.
-Drinks at the hotel restaurant are pretty expensive (but - a pro - you can bring them up to your room!)
-The fitness center has outdated equipment, one of each type. There is no remote or way to adjust the TV. I wanted to watch something on my iphone so I had to drag a weight bench over to stand on to be able to reach the TV to turn it off.
-The door keys don't work all that well. Had to try multiple times to get into both our room and the fitness center.
-While the front desk was always very friendly, we had only one question during our stay - which was where the closest liquor store was that was open past 9pm - and the only thing the front desk person could mention was the supermarket in Capitol Hill a ways away. Upon returning to my computer, I found multiple liquor stores that were slightly closer, and open at that time. Boo to misinformation.

PROS:
-The location for the price is absolutely where it's at. You're right in the middle of everything you'd want to see as a tourist in Seattle. Literally - smack damn in the middle of it all. The center of the wheel, with spokes to downtown/Pike Place, Capitol Hill, Belltown, Pioneer Sq., etc. You're also just a few blocks from the best latte ever (Monorail Espresso). There's a public parking lot right across the street, a Hertz rental the next block over should you need to rent/return, and you're 2 blocks from the light rail station that takes you to the airport.
-Having just come from Anacortes where we got a huge gorgeous room with lots of fancy things (balcony, soaking tub, cushy bathrobes, lots of tv channels, etc.) for a little less money, at first this felt like a rip off, but in reality, it's the cheapest NICE hotel of it's kind in that area (without a pool).
-The room was CLEAN, and the windows open.
-The bed was SUPER comfortable.
-I called to say it was our first real vacation as a couple and they put us on the highest floor they could for our room type (9th floor, Traditional King Room), and gave us a corner room which I think was a little bit bigger.
-Their typical checkout is 12pm, which is pretty late for standard hotels, so that was nice! They kept our bags tagged in a locked storage room while we spent the day out, returning around 8pm to get our stuff for our red-eye home.

Bottom Line: This is probably the best, cheapest, nice hotel to stay in downtown Seattle, but don't expect any frills. It's clean, and everything will work, and you'll be comfortable, but you probably won't be wow-ed unless you spend more money.
