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.

This is a nice hotel, and pretty expensive. The problem is that the neighborhood it's in is ugly.. really dumpy. I am accustomed to staying in city hotels and stepping outside to something relatively nice, which is only fair for paying the rates they charge. This hotel's section of "Fore Street" is ugly and run down. Not dangerous, but definitely... More

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

We celebrated our 35th Anniversary at this hotel. We live in Portland, but toured this hotel in advance and were impressed with the rooms and amenities in a location where we could walk to some of our favorite places in the Old Port. We were able to check in early on Saturday and walk to Zapoteca for Margaritas and to... More

We just returned from a short family get away in Portland. We enjoyed our 1 bedroom suite with a pullout sofa for our two young children. We had excellent service, our room was clean and enjoyed the large complimentary breakfast each day. The gym has plenty of updated equipment. The pool area is large, although the water temperature could have... More

Had a terrific family gathering and will definitely do it again. Even in mid winter, the waterfront was alive with great dining and shopping. It would be fun to return in sunny Spring or Summer weather. The hotel beds are famous for being comfortable and clean- They did not disappoint.
