walking distance to everything in the Old Port, convenient having a restaurant below.....above all you always know what to expect when staying at a Hampton Inn. This is a good one......actually better than the pricier (and admittedly a bit fancier) other hotels in the Old Port. The staff here is really friendly and cares about your needs. I would not...

This Inn Inn is very close to the waterfront and its restaurants. I took an early morning walk and loved exploring the area. Staff was very helpful, particularly the valet personnel who knew the area and went out of their way to facilitate our short trips.

Everything was very good. Clean and comfortable room. Food excellent, and they were willing to share ingredients for allergy needs. Complimentary internet was a little choppy, and room key cards failed once. Staff was very responsive to all our needs. Price was a little higher than we wanted, but was pleased with quality.

We just stayed for our second time at this hotel, and while we like the Hampton Inn chain in general, we particularly like this one. This is our home away from home when we go to Portland now. The location is great, the rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast is also great with a nice variety, comfortable seating... More

Every staff member was helpful and courteous. I really enjoyed my stay and look forward to the same experience at any Hampton hotel. They really do cater to the needs of every guest. I wish all hotels would provide the same type of service. It would make my business travel a lot less stressful.

I always stay here when I'm visiting Portland, for the location and amenities this hotel is great. It's far above and beyond most Hampton Inn's, staff is very accommodating, rooms are spacious and complementary breakfast is great!

A 3 rating is charitable. We've stayed at too many Hampton Inns to count and this one has a safe lock on the most disappointing. First the location is hardly a welcoming harbor view. Our profile and routine is to book no smoking. The hotel was full and we were told we made a mistake in booking a smoking room.... More

We stayed here on a Saturday night in early January. We booked our reservation at the last minute when it became apparent that the first storm of 2015 was closing in on us. Our room we nicely appointed and the bed was comfortable. Overall, this is a great hotel but there are too minor things that travelers need to know.... More

Excellent accommodations. I have stayed here several times and have been treated very well. Very close to a lot of activities which are within a short walking distance. Hotel also offers a shuttle service to make further destinations easier. I highly recommend staying here for any reason.

Even before we arrived, our phone conversation with the director of sales gave us a clue that this was a customer focused property. Our room and the information we were provided made a quick visit to Portland relaxed, memorable, and productive. The young man who checked us in gave us three recommendations for meals and coffee and all three were... More
