The hotel offers free breakfast with hot and cold Buffett, the staff manning this area leave a lot to be desired. If you don't like public... More

We booked a last minute weekend getaway in Portland which we felt was centrally located in Maine on the coast, and we heard the town had some great restaurants and a cool vibe. The Residence Inn is within easy walking distance of everything in the Old Port, without being right in the middle of town. The room was great -... More

Good service, friendly, free shuttle service, great harbor views, good breakfast, reasonable, and the suites are very spacious -- a little home away from home. Lots of good seafood restaurants nearby, also the cinema, and the Old Port district with boutiques, coffee shops, and more!

We loved the amenities at this hotel, full kitchen, comfortable, quiet room. The decor was classy and staff friendly. It is a bit on the edge of downtown but we walked it several times a day. Lots of bars, shops and restaurants nearby. Very abundant breakfast choices.

I've never felt compelled to write a review of a hotel before but I recently switched my travel accommodations to the Marriott in the Old Port. So glad I did. The location, the quality of rooms and, most importantly, the friendly and professional staff make having to be away from home a much better experience. Also, it is great to... More

We have stayed at Residence Inn's all over the U.S., and enjoy them. But this Residence Inn is far and away the best so far. Spotlessly clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Very nice breakfast. Common areas are welcoming. Hot tub/whirlpool was well kept. Within walking distance of the Old Port shops and restaurants, and ferry terminal. We will be back.

As a management consultant, I have stayed at many Marriott hotels throughout the world, and never have I been treated with such exceptional service as I experienced in Portland, ME. The entire staff was friendly and they especially connected with my two children (they even gave them stuffed animals and pool toys). The location is in the heart of downtown... More
