I asked for a quiet room for my three-night stay at the Portland Paramount. I was accommodated in a corner king room on the 14th floor which offered two windows overlooking the city. Indeed, the room was very quiet at all times of the day and night. What I liked most was the spacious room (with refrigerator) and the helpful and friendly staff. They handled my luggage on arrival and departure without my having to search for assistance. Throughout my stay, they provided clear directions and transportation advice. Staff were always available to assist. On the down side, the shower water pressure was rather low, but not a major issue. Since I was travelling across several time zones, the effective blackout blinds offered extended sleep as I adjusted to a new time zone. The hotel's downtown location is an easy walk to Powell's bookstore, shopping, and a variety of restaurants. The MAX is easy to navigate and offers transportation further afield to the Saturday Market. The International Rose Test Garden and Japanese Garden are not far. Reed College was a 15-minute taxi ride away. The concierge arranged for transportation to the airport for an early morning departure. On my next visit to Portland, the Paramount will be my downtown hotel of choice.
