I've stayed here a few times when we travel to visit family in the area. I stayed around July 4th (+ husband, kid, and a spare kid's friend), and we got a 2 bedroom suite. This is hands down the only arrangement tolerable when traveling as a family. There are certainly more luxurious hotels in the area, and I would... More

My wife and only stay in Marriott's were ever possible. We stayed here and must admit it was one of the best. It was so good as was Portland that we are planning a return trip. The minute you walk into the foyer you know you are in a great place. I have only positive things to say. I can... More

Where do I begin with all of my fantastic feedback?! haha Let me just say that I absolutely loved the Portland area. This was my first visit to Maine and it certainly will not be my last. The only downside for me was only being there only a couple days. I stayed in the one bedroom suite and I have... More

We stayed six nights, July 10 through 15. Upon check-in we were offered an upgrade to a harbor view room. We were tickled with that, as we have never been offered an upgrade before! Six days later, we were much less tickled to find out our charges were also seriously upgraded! Perhaps when offering an upgrade, one should also mention... More

My wife and I stayed at the Residence Inn July 13 - 15, 2014 while vacationing in Portland. This is the second time in a year that we have stayed at this hotel. We were using our Marriott Rewards, so our 2 night stay cost us nothing. We love this hotel, because of its location. You are within easy walking... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Gil the manager and his staff were helpful and pleasant! Rooms were very clean and the location of the hotel was perfect. The shuttle was a plus when the weather didn't corporate. I can't say enough about how pleasant our experience was at this hotel. The manager has a great attitude and it carries through to... More

During a recent trip to Portland, Maine we staying at the Residence Inn Marriot for two nights (Saturday and Sunday). The hotel is a little farther down from the center of the Old Port District which makes it quieter but not a speedy walk one to two block walk to the Starbucks and other restaurants/ cafes. We were three girls... More

Great clean modern room. Awesome bed. Wonderful staff. Free food most nights downstairs. No complaints here. One suggestion though...to get to or from the pool and gym you have to walk all the way through the lobby and main setting area (unless I missed something...) and to me that is a negative. There is a shuttle van which is very... More

Stayed here before and really wanted to try somewhere else but the race in town brought in a lot of people. They have a great breakfast and and OK happy hour. Rooms are nice and clean. But being woke up at 3 am to a hotel-wide fire alarm and sitting outside on the street was no fun. The disturbing thing... More

This is a very nice, quiet, and dog friendly hotel near many good restaurants in Portland, ME. The suites are well stocked with everything you need to cook in your room (stove, microwave, dishes, etc.), but the hotel is well located with several very good restaurants within walking distance. The staff was very helpful. The hotel has a 10 pm... More
