We stayed for two nights while visiting family in Portland. The hotel itself isn't anything fancy, basic amenities and simple rooms. But the room was clean, and the kitchen was well stocked. I liked the dishwasher and disposal in the sink. We got a fantastic rate, and for what we paid we were more than thrilled. If I had paid... More

My sons and I stayed here for one night on our way up to Mt. Desert Isle. It was a great way to break up the drive and so much fun to have an afternoon and evening in Portland. This hotel accommodated our needs perfectly -- there were tons of breakfast options for them and the room had plenty of... More

It seems that hotels in Portland are overpriced specially in summer!!! And I believe this hotel is one of them !!! Well located. Gently staff, specially airport shuttle driver!! Big and quiet rooms. Well located downtown. You can easily reach oceanfront in less than 10 min.walk.

Our first time in Portland. Stayed at Residence Inn Downtown Waterfront. Great location, was able to walk downtown no problem. Booked a King bed suite which had a spacious kitchenette and great view of the water. Hotel was very clean and quiet and had a large variety breakfast each morning. Most evenings we stopped by the lounge, met Greg the... More

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.
