Made a reservation back in February for July and ask for a room with a view of the bay. That didn't happen which was disappointing but the location of the hotel made exploring old port and the water front very easy. The parking garage was right next door to the hotel with easy access and monitored 24/7. The room was... More

This hotel has it all. Great location, comfortable, well appointed rooms, good breakfast and helpful, courteous staff. You can walk (or bike as we did) to most of downown Portland. In fact , there is a great bike path only two blocks away. The hotel seems new, and the furnishings are modern and very nicely done. We would definitely stay... More

Rooms are much like other Inns. Very well appointed and clean. first floor rooms have a brick wall 10 feet away from the window, staff and utility rooms opposite. Horrible. We were charged 339 plus tax for our advanced booking. When I questioned the charge we were firstly told that was the rate despite me checking the website and seeing... More

This hotel's success and it's meticulous cleanliness is all about its Housekeeping Staff. We enjoyed the hotel's free continental breakfast and then watched the hours of cleaning and prepping that takes place in the common areas of the Lobby. Housekeeping staff climbing up to dust the top of pictures; they were just so incredibly dilligent (so good that we found... More

Very nice modern Marriott Residence Inn just 3 years old. Hotel has many features such as a bar unfamiliar to the brand. Excellent location on east side of city and close by a newer Hampton Inn and an Hilton Garden. All seem new and well located. At this hotel we were impressed with the friendly hospitable service at the front... More

This hotel is a great hotel for families and groups. Its standard Residence Inn suite-style accommodations means there's room for kids, privacy for parents and a little kitchen for snacks or simple meals. Although I was disappointed that there was no access from the first floor pool to the outdoors, there is a large court yard with a grill, propane... More

We asked for an upgrade (water view) when we checked in and were told that our room had a nice view, the next mornong we found out our "great view" was the loading dock of a company next door. That morning I called the front desk... More

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
