Verified Reviews of Paramount Plaza

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"I would not recommend this hotel to any traveling teams"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
We had 13 rooms and we wanted all rooms together since I was traveling with high school girls that I needed to keep track of. They put them in two different buildings and three different floors. They had three rooms the deadbolt did not work and one of my rooms had blood on the sheets. I have left messages for the manager and they have not called me back yet. The breakfast crew was the only helpful group at the hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to any traveling teams.
