Easy access to the Old Port area and waterfront. Nice breakfast, accommodations very clean and comfortable, pool, adjoining a restaurant, staff very helpful ~ great place. Valet parking, easy access to highway if you are going off sightseeing for the day. We have stayed here many times and it is always consistent.

We had a great stay at the Hampton inn downtown Portland. The rooms were clean and staff was very friendly. The free breakfast is fantastic! The hot dishes change daily. It includes eggs, bacon, sausage, seasoned potatoes, cereals, oatmeal, waffles, bananas, juices and coffee/tea. In addition the coffee and tea is available at all times in the lobby! Wi-Fi is...

This is a nice centrally located hotel that has direct access to Sebago restraint (a local chain that is quite good). We stayed in room 504 and thought we booked a room with a scenic view. Turns out the view of the harbour includes scenic oil storage tanks. While this is not the hotels fault I find it odd that... More

Overall this hotel is great! It is right downtown by the water and all the restaurants and shops. The staff were friendly and the room was clean. Only real downside is the $15 a night valet service that only parks your vehicle about 20 yards away in an attached lot. However, all in all, another great Hampton Inn stay.

We stayed at this Hampton Inn while visiting Portland and it was a nice visit. I'll start with the positives. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable which is always a plus. The morning breakfast was mostly good. One of the best things about this hotel is its location. We walked almost everywhere downtown we wanted to... More

The staff was very friendly and the room was clean and tidy. Casey, the shuttle driver, was very helpful and did a great job getting me to the airport on time. It was within walking distance to most things downtown. I would stay here again.

We love staying at the Hampton. This specific one was a complete different experience. Upon check in they had no idea we were arriving. Even after showing them a confirmation they could not find it. We had payed extra for the water view, only to check into a handicapped room with view of bricks and all the vent and cooling... More

We were very pleased with our stay. The King Junior Suite was very spacious and the hotel was within walking distance of everything. For a suite, the bathroom could have been more plush (ie there was no separate tub and the tub was built in vs. tile) but even still it was very clean and that would be the only... More

I had to work in Maine two weeks in a row and I loved the room I had at the Hampton Inn Portland Downtown Waterfront so much that I booked it for both weeks.
