We visited Portland for 3 days. After much research, we booked this hotel. We were glad we did. Why? - Amazing location: easy to walk downtown, right by the water - Really nice, new, clean rooms that were very well laid out - Fast wi-fi - Helpful front desk staff - Deep discount on the garage parking next door, with...

This was probably the best Residence Inn that we ever used. We stayed two nights here while we made an impromptu Lobster Roll and Fried Clam tour of this area of Maine. It started with a early check-in with Michael at the front desk. He was great. In addition, for a young fellow, he knew where to eat! I asked... More

Clean and modern. Free hot breakfast. A few blocks walk from the Pier, restaurants and shopping area. Rooms are small for a Residence Inn. Waterfront means you can see the water however hotel overlooks an empty unkempt lot, a warehouse and a harbor parking lot. Parking is for a fee in a nearby parking garage so if you have a... More

I would probably stay here again. Its clean, the service is good and the breakfast is tasty. The cons are noisy seagulls at crack of dawn, they seem to live there, and its overpriced. The thing is all the hotels in Portland in high season are overpriced. So its fine but nothing to write home about.

The pictures and location description of this hotel are very deceptive. We wanted waterfront rooms, which we were told we had........our definition of waterfront is there is nothing between you and the water, unless it's beach or grass. We overlooked dock warehouses with a slight view of the water........ The rooms were "adequate" size, that being said, our luggage would... More

The hotel is pretty close to the Old Port area where are most of the restaurants and bars. The apartment is good and have a good size, also there is a pool and a nice jacuzzi. The breakfast is good as well.

I've seen mixed reviews on this hotel, and was a little concerned before we got there. We paid premium prices because it is premium season. Hotel was very clean staff were very friendly and the location could not have been better or more convenient to the downtown area and the piers. There were concerts on the peers, boat tours available,... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights end of July into Aug. We came from NJ just to explore the city and the surrounding area. The hotel was clean and accommodating. Great continental breakfast, clean pool, coffee available 24/7 and they offer a complimentary hotel shuttle which can drop off & pick up anywhere in the downtown area. The... More
