We were pleasantly surprised by how nice The Paramount Hotel was. It isn't managed by a big chain, but still offers all the elegance and amenities you would enjoy at one, only with super Oregon-friendly and personable staff, from the kind folks at the reception desk to the happy doorman. Upon our arrival we were told we'd been upgraded to a corner room on the 11th floor, as I had hoped for, with windows on two sides which looked out over Pioneer Square/Director Park, and beyond to a beautiful city-scape. It was outfitted in tasteful contemporary decor, and was clean, spacious, and comfortable. Since their restaurant was being renovated when we were there (the end of April 2014) we can't comment on that. Our first day it took quite a while for the shower water to get hot, but after that there was never a problem, so maybe it had simply been a while since it had been used.
The lobby is elegant and artistically decorated. The concierge was very helpful in getting us a rental car, as we had to continue south where we had friends and relatives to visit. We love to walk so never did take the MAX light rail, but it was nearby. You can't ask for a better location with shops, restaurants, concert halls and museums all either right there or a couple of blocks away.
