We woke up yesterday morning and both had scheduled massages in the salon that was connected to our hotel. While Marlon got his, I spent some time walking around the local area. It was the most beautiful day outside! The weather in Portland is really spectacular right now. (Although I should knock on wood because apparently it's only like this two …
What a long day of flying and delays. We left Portland at 9:25am and flew to Dallas. Our next flight was supposed to be 2.5 hours, but ended up being close to 4 with a large delay. It's international rules you cannot leave with bags and no person. So they had to search this huge, full flight for 2 bags. Argh. Our shuttle ride was delayed due to a mishap with the payment. Took 45 minutes. Finally got to the resort at 11:45pm. ...

After a week in the low 90's, it still only 20 degrees here at 10:30 am, with weather forecast : "The region is in for a full blast of winter conditions today and through the weekend."
Just wanted to let you know I've added a few pics to my previous entries - a little flavor of my last two weeks.
We made an early start and headed straight to Silver Falls State Park. Here there is an 8.7 mile loop called the 10 Waterfalls Trail, which funny enough takes you on a hike through the canyon passing by 10 falls. The leaves are all turning shades of reds and oranges with plenty of green ferns and moss covered rocks and trees, creating beautiful colourful woodlands to walk through next to the river. The waterfalls were pretty impressive too, some of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Paramount Hotel Portland
We stayed at the Paramount Oct. 18-20, 2004. Overall, it was ok.
Nice place to stay
My husband and I stayed here only one night for our anniversary. We had the excutive room with the jacuzzi tub. It was a nice hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. Nothing over the top or elaborate as far as rooms and furnishings go. A little pricey at $114.00 on a Sunday, but comparable for the area. Room service and the resturaunts food was very good! Rooms and bath rooms were clean. I would stay here again.
Two of us stayed in this hotel for a long weekend this summer. Overall, it was a satisfactory experience, but it skated close to disaster. It turned out OK only because we were assertive enough to make it so.
Convenient to downtown
A girl's weekend out for three of us. We reserved through Travelocity. Specifically chose this hotel because it offered queen beds rather than doubles. Quoted price was for 2 queen beds; nothing is mentioned to us at check-in and we get to the room - 1 King. Called front desk and they said a roll-away has been requested. Because we reserved through Travelocity beds couldn't be guaranteed and of course there wasn't anything else available. We thought this was very deceptive to not disclose this when we were checking in. Turned out okay, but when paying $139/night I didn't think the deal was so special that we should be treated as a lesser guest. Hotel is very convenient and quiet.
Patriotic and Acommidating
The Paramount has gone way above the call of duty. They were so nice in helping plan a special night for my son and his wife. My son is coming home for mid tour leave from Iraq and Rachel made a wonderful night come true! Thank you Rachel and Paramount.
Comfortable,quiet,good location,older Portland hotel
This is an older boutique hotel that has a great location in downtown Portland,it is just two blocks from Pioneer Square and lightrail. I thought the rooms would be a bit more luxourous for a 4 star hotel but they were average. The rooms were comfortable and quiet and clean . The only complaint I have is that the hotel should have stated they have 3 star rooms in a 4 star hotel when the listed with preceline.
Stayed here for a couple of nights last summer and had a very enjoyable experience. The room was nicely sized, clean and quiet. The staff was fine and efficient and the lobby restaurant ("Dragonfish") serves quality Asian food. Really no complaints about the place; would definitely stay there again.
The staff is fantastic!
I stayed here on business in October, and was really impressed with the staff. Both of the concierges were extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and everyone at the hotel was unbelievably nice. Because it is a smaller hotel, service seemed more personalized - they knew who we were when we came and left. The rooms were nice, although the beds are a bit too firm for my taste, and it is tough to get a good view in downtown Portland. The price was fine for the area, and got the best rate we could find by booking directly through the hotel. If you stay there, check out the South Park restaurant. It is a fabulous seafood restaurant just around the corner from the hotel, and we were able to get in without a reservation on a Friday night at prime time.
We just had an enjoyable stay at the Paramount Hotel in Portland, OR.
This is a fantastic hotel. Newly renovated it oozes class. Within walking distance of Pioneer Square and just about anywhere downtown.
The MAX transit system is one block away as is Nordstrom. The Pioneer Place Shopping Centre is a short walk. The Columbia Store is next door.
Staff were very friendly and efficient. The in hotel bar and restaurant were always bustling with people. Rooms are large beautifully decorated, and in my room the bathroom had a spa. I had a room on the 10th floor with a great view over the city. I will alway stay here from now on. Got a great discount deal online as well.
