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

I just returned from a stay in Portland, Maine and am happy to recommend the Residence Inn Portland Downtown. The property is immaculate. Free wifi in guest rooms. Every room has a kitchenette with a full-size fridge, dishwasher, microwave and 2 burners. A full breakfast is served every morning (no charge). The hotel offers a substantial evening "snack" Monday through... More

I stayed at this hotel for a couple nights over a weekend. The hotel's location is nicely located walking distance to Old Portland where all the shopping and dining is. The rooms are large, comfortable and make you feel at home. I've stayed at quite a few Residence Inn's and I though this one was easily the best. It feels... More

The rooms are amazing. Very new, clean and nicely designed. It is definitely within walking distance to everything in the old port, but it is the last newly renovated building on the block. It is nice to be able to park your car and leave it. If you have a larger vehicle, make sure to ask about alternate parking. Full... More

Our Executive Suite was a comfortable, if not luxurious, oasis. Great location and water views. Free wifi, breakfast, and gym. Great kitchen and great service at the front desk. New hotel that would suit business and pleasure seekers. Highly recommended. Parking is $12 around the corner. Unlimited in and out. My wife wasn't feeling well on the last day of... More

This was a great place to stay midway through our 3,000 mile road trip. There were laundry facilities, so I was able to do a load of laundry (took a total of one hour). The fitness area was VERY nice as was the pool/hot tub. Our room was large, clean, and the bag of microwave popcorn that was there when... More
