We've always enjoyed our stay at the Paramount Hotel in Portland, OR. So when family members were visiting us last month, we thought we'd spend a weekend with them at the Paramount in Seattle.
The location was excellent (near downtown shopping as other reviewers have mentioned). Staff was very courteous and helpful.
Compared to the Portland location, the Seattle Paramount needs some sprucing up. The elevator was marked and scuffed. The hallway to our room smelled of cleaning or toiletry products (we couldn't tell which). There appeared to be some water damage in our bathroom. However, our room was clean and quiet.
It was a convenient location, but not a luxurious accomodation.
