I initially posted the following review but because hotel managers contacted me and took actions to respond to the problems, I am reposting in order to include and give credit to the hotel for its response.

Walking distance to Old Port shops and restaurants, parking was easy with a garage next to the property. Very clean lobby, which can be difficult in Dec. in Maine (salt, sand etc.) Room was very clean, spacious, and the bed was comfy. Breakfast was included and had a large assortment of options to choose from, pancakes, waffles, eggs, cereals, fresh... More

A great hotel in a great location. Modern decor and friendly staff. Pet friendly as well. Small pool and fitness center. There is a restaurant in the same building as the hotel which was great. You can walk from this location to the downtown coffee shops and restaurants.

The wifi was good quality and simple to log on to, the free breakfast was good standard, the parking garage across the road was easy to find and good value. Free tea/coffee was served... More

As a family with two Westies we travel with them everywhere. Our favorite hotels are the Residence Inns and we love the Portland Residence Inn. We visit relatives in the area and are a quick few minutes from them and everything we need. We always stay in the suite overlooking the ocean with its floor to ceiling windows giving all... More

We stayed here while visiting family for Thanksgiving, and I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the room and the extras, including a full kitchen. Parking is available at a neighboring garage, but not free (it is an extra $12 a day, which made me a little sad because the room itself wasn't cheap, but parking in Portland is... More

Good spot for a night away with the kids. The room could have been a little cleaner (there were some candy pieces and other items under the couch, chairs, and bed), but overall it was a good stay. The hotel was packed, but we never heard another guest. Nice common areas - lobby, bar, breakfast area, pool. Loved the fruit... More

We planned a family trip to explore Portland for a few days and then head down the coast. The Residence was great for a family of 5 because we could get a two room suite with a kitchenette for a reasonable price. The hotel is on the edge of a very interesting neighborhood. It felt very safe and there was... More

This is a thank you to the very hospitable staff of the Residence Inn, Waterfront Hotel in Portland, Maine, for their unfailing, warm, and efficient service this Thanksgiving. From the front desk staff, to housekeeping, to the breakfast serving staff--every person was service-oriented and cheerful. I want to give a special shout out to Matt and Julie who were unexpectedly... More
