Checked in late on a Sunday night (October 19, 2014). Very clean all around. Stayed in a 5th floor room with a fantastic view! Peter at the front desk was fantastic. He upgraded our room after learning how far we had travelled. Top notch service! EXCELLENT breakfast buffet. Well worth it!

4 of us stayed here on Saturday and Sunday night of Columbus Day weekend. The hotel is beautiful and located perfectly where you can walk anywhere along the waterfront. Close to so many restaurants and shops that you don't need a car. Rooms are clean and spacious. Indoor pool and fitness center. Offers daily breakfast which has nice selection. Small... More

We stayed here for 5 nights with our newborn and toddler in a 2 bedroom suite. The bedrooms are spacious enough to fit 2 cribs that the hotel provided with no additional charge. Each room had a bathroom too. When we arrived the cribs were set up along with a note and 2 bath toys welcoming us which is such... More

Just spent one night at this hotel after deciding to spend a night in Portland before leaving Maine. We had a waterfront room and enjoyed watching the unloading of the ferry from Nova Scotia and than the reloading and departure. The room was very nice. Plenty of room for two and lots of bags. And there was decent water pressure... More

I stayed at the Residence Inn for four nights while vacationing in Maine. The room was very clean and there was ample room for two to get ready. The hotel is in walking distance to the docks, shops, and the many places to eat. After the wonderful hot complimentary breakfast we enjoyed walking on the trail along the water and... More

I cannot say how disappointed I am at the treatment we received while staying at this establishment. Regardless of how nice the rooms are, or how convenient the location, I find no excuse that covers being rude to your customers. We have another trip here in a month, and must spend almost two weeks here because we are adopting a... More

I stayed at the Residence Inn for two nights while in town for the Maine Marathon. I really couldn't find anything to complain about and I usually find something. I had a water view that was really nice. The room was very roomy and clean. There is a little bar downstairs. It doesn't serve food, but there are several good... More

Fabulous weekend stay! Room overlooking the harbor with the comings and goings of multiple cruise ships. Walk to EVERYTHING! Terrific complimentary breakfast. Double happy hour at the bar (5pm - 6pm & 9pm - 10pm). Complimentary shuttle to the jetport or, in our case, the train station. Pet friendly. Pool, jacuzzi, fitness center, full kitchen. Extremely helpful, affable staff. It... More

The Residence Inn Portland Downtown is an excellent property. Our 2 room suite was clean, modern, and quiet. The property is only a 10 minute walk to the waterfront with many restaurants, shops, and activities. The breakfast had hot entrees and was served promptly. There were only 2 downsides -- first, hotel rates were very pricey despite being September off... More

The Residence Inn Portland Downtown is located on the north end of the waterfront district of Portland - but walkable to the main areas of Fore St. and Commercial St. The rooms have fully equipped kitchens and designed for extended stays. A full hot breakfast buffet is included. It has a nice indoor pool and Jacuzzi.
