On Fore St. just a block or so from Old Port - had a nice suite, everyone pleasant, parking cheap next door. Lots of places to go downtown. Portland's a fun city. Would stay there again. It was quiet and clean.

On both check-in and check-out, the customer service was outstanding! Very friendly, courteous and extremely helpful. The rooms we're clean, fitness centre was good and the complimentary shuttle to the train station was a definite plus!

Asked specifically for the front two bedroom suite. The one we got was not at all what I asked for, in short ripped off beware! I was told one thing over the phone and did not get what I expected. 1.5x more per night than is reasonable.

I am sorry for any miscommunication there may have been with making your reservation. We do not have any two bedroom suites that face the water. The only room option we have for water views are the studios. Thank you for your feedback. More

We took our family to Portland for a visit and we had two rooms – one on the top floor and one on the bottom. The difference in cleanliness between the two rooms was significant. The first floor room was not properly cleaned – there was lots of hair in the bathroom that obviously did not belong to our family.... More

We arrived at the Residence Inn on the night of a six inch rainfall which resulted in much flooding, including three inches in the lobby and the need to evacuate those guests in first floor rooms. The staff could not have been more helpful. Their shuttle service which will take guests anywhere and pick them up took us to a... More

A standard marriott experience. Rooms are clean and the kitchen, living room area makes it more enjoyable than a standard room which is nice to have with kids. (Space and fridge.) we had two rooms and were satisfied. Parking is a bit of a hassle. No valet service. Location is nice, easy to walk to the old Port.

Most Marriotts do it right with regard to room layout and amenities, and the Residence Inn is no exception. However, also like most Marriotts, it doesn't have much personality. We opted for a harbor view room which allowed us to watch the Nova Scotia ferry arrive, unload and load each evening. Breakfast was included and the food was good, but... More

As stated by others - GREAT LOCATION and the shuttle is a blessing. So - we upgraded to a waterview room. Wonderful view of the harbor, but the windows were COVERED in fingerprints and heaven's knows what else. Luckily my roomate is used to my traveling prepared to clean...but I shouldn't have to for the price we paid. Hello Housekeeping?... More

The rating was Very Good rather than Excellent because the mattress was a little worn. The included breakfast was very good. We stayed in a two bedroom suite. The room was large and very nice. Housekeeping was also excellent.

Had a water view room that overlooked the international ferry terminal - very nice. Take advantage of their free shuttle service - we did five times! Sebago Brewery / Restaurant and Fore Street are several great places to eat a few blocks away.
