Prime location in downtown Portland

Were in town for the Portland marathon. Friendly staff all around. Room & restaurant had all that we wanted. Downtown location convenient for walking just about everywhere in this beautiful city. We lucked out.. it didn't rain a single day during our stay. That's not the Portland travel weather experience we were told.

Paramount Hotel

Overall a very centrally located hotel. The staff was helpful, but the business center and gym needs to be updated. The version of Explore used in the business center is obsolete which made it difficult to check-in for the flights and research the websites of popular places in the area.

Portland Marathon

Good hotel, great location, although a bit overpriced and the parking situation is a racket in downtown Portland, so much so if you want access to your vehicle before 8am then expect to pay $31/day for parking while staying at this hotel. Considering their price it is disappointing they do not have more affordable parking and/or a non-valet parking option. Otherwise, good, clean hotel and great service.

Hotel Paramount

Great stay. A little pricey with additional $31 parking fee per night. Room was comfy, but needed more lighting. Turned every light in the room on and could still have used a few more. Very nice people that were helpful.

Fantastic location!

This hotel was the perfect location -- downtown and close to mass transit and shops and bars and restaurants. A few things were lacking, though. No free coffee for guests in the lobby (Starbucks across the street); very cheap toilet paper; cleaning staff didn't clean the room until late in the afternoon. The room was comfortable, with two queen beds. I will definitely stay there again next time I'm in Portland.

Nice quiet stay in the city!

Fabulous! We enjoyed our stay. The staff will do anything to help. We had a room on the 11th floor away from the elevator - very quiet and a nice view of the park. This hotel does not host parties and is therefore nice for a quiet stay. The in-room complimentary shampoo, etc. is wonderful as well (smells like lemon!). Highly recommended and within walking distance of Powells, Burnside, Saturday Market, etc.

Nice place to stay alone

I enjoyed staying here, and just have a few suggestions, better channels on the tv (no tv land or hallmark) and put room service doorknob menus every nite in room, not only on check-in night.
