The Paramount is located right in the middle of Portland. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. All of the staff are friendly and helpful, and take pains to remember names and preferences. The Dragonfish Restaurant in the hotel is a good place for a meal, or a business meeting.

Most boutique hotels have the characteristic of being much and much the same, but not so the Paramount Hotel. It has one hundred and fifty four rooms, so maybe some people would not call it a boutique hotel.
However whatever you call it, its light and "Mediterranean" decor, even its location, has that boutique hotel atmosphere!

Centrally located for all the main activities of downtown Portland, the Paramount is just off Broadway on the Park blocks. It is generally away from the traffic noise of Broadway, which affords it a certain intimacy for a hotel that appears to cater mostly to the business traveler.

The first thing I noticed on entering the room apart from the good natural lighting and pleasing fixtures, was the cleanliness and how big it was. The decor of the room, as in the hotel in general, was very pleasing to the eye and relaxing. Although the hotel itself is over ten years old, it felt new and unused.

The staff were also excellent in their customer care and desire to uphold the high standards this hotel has set for itself.

With competitively priced rooms this hotel is a good choice for the business or tourist traveler.

A few blocks away from the Portland Art Museum, the Paramount has sunny rooms with nice views and contemporary décor. The hotel opened in 2000 and has been a popular place to stay (particularly with business travelers) ever since. The rooms here are sunny and spacious (in fact huge by downtown hotel standards), and the ones on the top floors, which are relatively unobstructed by nearby buildings, have a lot of light. Some rooms also have jet bathtubs. Some also have balconies. Try to nab a room with a park view if possible. There’s a 24-hour business center and a small fitness room, but the best thing about this hotel is its bar, which serves up some excellent cocktails and sushi during happy hour (it’s a popular after-work drinks spot with the downtown crowd).

First to Review

When “Old Hollywood” romanced modern decor they had a lovechild and named it the Paramount Hotel. A friendly concierge greeted me and we were instant friends. We talked, en route to see a room, about favorite travel spots and just as he starts to explain how Japan is calm amidst ‘all that darn chaos’; I entered. The rooms are what you’d expect from a top hotel: crisp, neat, and bed-jump-able, however, the beautiful view from virtually every window overlooking Portland’s ever-entertaining streets and hills sets them apart.The hotel’s amenities include a business and fitness center, a chic Japanese restaurant and location, location, location. It’s within walking distance to everything, and should I ever need to zen-ify myself after seeing all the sights, I’ll be snagging yoga passes they offer to a local studio.
