Great location, good views, nice breakfast room. Right next to free trolley which takes you all over downtown. Portland has a great public transportation system. It's free downtown- fareless square

We stayed here June 2011 during a trip to Maine & New Hampshire. We flew in/out of Portland and had originally planned to stay at this hotel on the way in and explore Portland a bit before venturing elsewhere. The location is a bit farther down from the main strip of the more bustling downtown area, but still walkable and... More

from the beginning it was a pleasant experience - the staff at the front desk were extremely helpful and welcoming. the room was clean, larger than our 4 star boston hotel room. there is a whole foods nearby which makes it even more convenient for families. the location is good - being on the waterfront, yet walking distance from the...

As a long time Residence fan, this Residence was disappointing on two counts: 1. Front desk/check-in/billing -- took much too long with several mistakes and do-overs to check in. Then, since I had used points for one night and paid for a second night, the check-in person could not put both on one bill, and I had to go back... More

Having been to Portland, Maine on business in the past I chose to stay downtown on my trip through town on vacation. The hotel is only four years old and was built to the "new" Marriott model with very nice public spaces and "spot on" rooms. Travelling solo I had a studio which was large by most standards, clean, well... More

You really can't go wrong with Residence Inn/Marriott Hotel chains! You can really count on them to be consistent, so there are really no surprises! We had a King-studio, which included a small kitchen and pull out sofa. It had a huge flat screen TV and a comfy king-sized bed. I loved the Paul Mitchell toiletries! Everything smelled so good!...

Appealing decor, very clean, and helpful, friendly staff make this a pleasant base for exploring the Portland Old Port area. Our room was on the water view side, and it was definitely worth it to get to watch the activity in the harbor. Location is also good, as it's an easy 5-10 minute walk to shops and sights, or if...

This hotel was great for our family of 5 - the room was spacious and had everything we needed. My 3 little boys liked sleeping on the sofa bed and it super to have kitchen facilities. The morning breakfast was quite nice with something for everyone. The location was perfect - walking distance to the pier and many resteraunts. Very... More

I have stayed in this hotel 3-4 times. My wife and I travel to Portland periodically for an overnight get away. This is a very nice hotel. A little bit outside the center of activity but not a bad walk. No complaints other than the requirement for a 2 night minimum frequently.

The suites are fantastic. We had a corner waterfront room with 6 windows that opened with a great view of a dynamic harbor. The working harbor is a very educational experience. It's an absolutely fascinating place. The rooms are spotless with a spacious bath, dressing room and well equipped kitchen. It is within walking distance of stores and restaurants, but... More
