As long as you do not mind walking a little bit, this is in a great location. Only a few blocks from the monorail to the Space Needle/Chihuly Gardens (skip the former, do not miss the latter), the central mass transit center (which features dozens of homeless people all around it), only a few blocks further straight down Pine St. to Pike Place Market, loads of shopping, restaurants and coffee shops within a few blocks. Tom the concierge is an amazing source of info! Use his vast storehouse of Seattle knowledge!!! No spa, boutique shops or bar if you are looking for those, but the rooms are very nicely appointed and well built (ours was right next to the elevator and we never heard it once). Only drawbacks are the extremely hard pillows that left us with head and neck aches (bring your own if you can!), and the bikers on the street below who seem to take a perverse delight in making as much noise as they possibly can, revving their straight pipes to echo off the canyons of high rises (then again maybe that was just my problem as I am a light sleeper and the GF never heard them). Desk staff also very friendly and helpful.

Thank you for taking the time to share a review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed Tom's (our Concierge) knowledge of the city and found our front desk staff helpful. We are a smaller hotel but we do have an attached bar/restaurant called Dragonfish (Asian fusion) and next door to us is a bar/restaurant called Urbane (American farm to table). There is a spa next us called Elaia. And we are 1 block from Nordstrom for shopping. So while we do not have all amenities under 1 roof, we are pretty darn close to everything!

I come to Seattle often and usually stay at Embassy suites, so this was the first times I visited The Paramount. Overall, I am pleased with the hotel and my service and would visit here again.

Good: Location, location, location!! Great! High walkability rating. No car needed if you stay in this hotel. Close to all major attractions and restaurants. The bed was VERY comfy. No complaints. The room appeared modern with furnishings. The service was great. I did use the onsite gym which was nice for my routine workouts.

Not so good (never bad): Your view out your room is of another building, no matter how high your floor is. This is either the west or east.... I'm not sure which direction but 50% chance of looking at concrete and no natural sunlight. In the other hotel I usually stay in has better visual stimulation no matter which side of hotel you stay in. My room was on the side of the restaurant which after the second night hoped my clothes didn't smell like food. No free breakfast but free coffee and/or water in the lobby. Valet parking is $32 a night. Try to take a train or something because if you stay long term, that can add up!

Room Tip: Three sides of the building is facing another building. No matter how high your floor, outside your...

I have never met a more enthusiastically helpful concierge than Tommy. A true wonder. The hotel itself was very convenient to the Convention Center and (with a bit of a walk) to the Pike Market area. The area around the the hotel was safe. The rooms were entirely sufficient and clean, and for the money, a bargain. I would certainly stay here again.

So the Paramount was my choice, we stayed for a few nights for a wedding out of Seattle.I had previously stayed at the Hyatt across the street, but was told that it was under renovation on some of the floors so I decided the Paramount looked like fun.

It was. We had a nice average room, with a bright green tree outside the window, the hotel was quiet, and the staff was great. Rooms were clean and reasonably priced, we were not part of a package.

We had a corner room, bed was comfortable and a good nights sleep.

Room Tip: Corner room was quiet.

My family and I just got back from Seattle and we spent a few nights at The Paramount Hotel. I would highly recommend staying here if you're going to Seattle. It was walking distance to many places, including Pike Place Market, Macy's, Nordstrom Cheesecake Factory and many other stores and restaurants. The staff was beyond friendly and we were even able to get early check in one of our days. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were a nice size.

The location is ideal...however this is an older property and therefore you might be able to hear your neighbors. We could hear the toilet in the room above us...and all the drawers being opened and closed in the adjacent room. It is a nice property and we had breakfast in the restaurant next door. Service at front desk was great. Beds comfy...

Loved this hotel. The location is perfect and close to everything you need.

The hotel is in nice condition and our room was ver nice. Honourable mention for the room layout. The sink is outside of the shower and toilet area, which is great for multiple people getting ready.

The front end staff is vet friendly and helpful.
