The Paramount Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I had reserved 2 rooms with 2 QUEEN sized beds per room for 6 average sized people so some people would have to share. Upon arrival, the hotel was clearly much more dated than the price and the stock photos suggest - this is definitely not a 'modern' hotel. But that's not my major problem - the whole reason I am writing this review is because of the beds. Everyone in our group sleeps in queen sized beds every day at home and these were CLEARLY NOT queen sized beds. These were so obviously full beds. The crazy part is the 'manager' claimed they were queen and that we were the first people to ever mention this. It is infuriating to debate reality with someone. It's one thing to debate something hypothetical, but it's another thing to deny something that is right in front of my face. Not only that, they refused to do anything about it: a partial room credit, move rooms, bring in a extra cot, a credit for their hotel bar, etc. They didn't even seem interested in trying to make things right. After much back and forth debate - all I wanted was an admission of the problem or error, not even an apology...nothing. So I left it as I would go to Target down the street, buy a tape measure and prove for sure. And of course, document my experience online. She couldn't care less, so here we are. The pictures are my proof (camera phone quality is not great). Low and behold - the measurements are exactly that of a FULL SIZE bed (54x74)!!! At least it wasn't a twin... Stay away!

Great experience with staff . Hotel close to downtown . Many restaurants nearby. If you would like to get drinks and appetizers the bar in the hotel is great.

This was a business trip and I must say, this was the best Hotel thus far that the company has set us up with. Staff was great, friendly and very helpful with really great attitudes. Great customer service seems to be optional these days. But not with The Paramount. You guys ROCK! Thanks

I was very pleased and I will return. I told all my corporate friends that when in this area they must stay here. Thank you for a pleasant stay, the bed was so comfortable, I was rested and ready for my morning meeting.

the pillows were way too soft and the floors needed vacuuming other than that was a great stay at a beautiful hotel. Work on those thingsI recommend this hotel to others and I we'll stay again when in Portland.

Very accommodating staff and great location. Restaurants and bar very nice / food excellent. Wifi available but not strong signal in some locations.

Walkable to so many shops and quiet at night The room had a jacuzzi and very soothing and relaxing scented shampoo and body wash

Vacation stay in Portland. Great location near to shops, sites, and restaurants. Large comfortable room, good amenities. Price reduction before we arrived, so was able to capture the lower rate. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Comfort and convenience, good location, nice views Friendly staff

The Hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful. We only stayed one night but everything was perfect.

I've stayed at The Paramount several times before, and love the location in a vibrant, busy downtown.

Excellent hotel. Great downtown location. The staff was very helpful.

The bartenders in the hotel bar are great abs have good recommendations.

Nice hotel, and great location right down town By all the main stores. Plenty of resteraunts all within walking distance

Loved the location and the staff provided excellent service. The Swank and Swine we both great.

I stayed at The Paramount for a 4 day 3 night stay and this was an excellent hotel that is centrally located to all major Portland sites. It is also closely located to several major MAX lines. Should I go back to Portland, I will definitely try to stay at this hotel again.

Stayed because of location. Walking distance to everything we liked. Parking easy/reasonable in local garage. Friendly staff.

Great hotel and staff, room was clean, and great location!

Everyone is so nice in Portland, including the staff at the Paramount. I got a free upgrade (without even asking) to a corner King room with the jetted tub on the 11th floor (most likely because I stayed mid-week) and the view was incredible for this small town girl. The hotel was quiet, the valet service was quick, and I loved the sweet doormen. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

The room temperature might be a bit hard to adjust (I failed to turn it warmer for the night), but everything else worked fine.
