We stayed here last weekend and all had a great time. THe kids loved the pool and we were very happy with the complimentary breakfast. The hotel was in a great location and the staff was all very nice. We'd recommend it and would stay here again.

What makes this hotel good is its location. The hotel is close to the all the stores and restaurants. Rooms are clean and staff is friendly. I am never happy having to go thru valet parking but whenever I needed my car it was brought up to entrance quickly. Other than the location this is an average Hampton Inn.

Hotel was in a good location, clean, friendly staff, etc. The complimentary breakfast was delicious! We arrived approximately 2.5 hours early and were allowed to check it at no additional cost. The only down side was that $15 valet parking fee which I thought was over priced, however overall it was a very good experience!

This Hampton Inn has an outstanding location. Close to the ferry, restaurants and the Promenade. But we had multiple issues, that were not typical for a Hampton Inn. It was disappointing that the front desk staff was so untrained. One person tried to tell me Fore Street restaurant was on Commercial St. Another couldn't figure out change for a bottle... More

I have stayed here on 3 occasions. The hotel is in a great location and you can walk to some of the best restaurants that Portland has to offer. There is a breakfast included in the morning. The rooms are clean and the staff is nice.

Great location, easily walkable to downtown options that I enjoy. An EASY one block walk to one of Portland's best dining choices, Fore Street. The property has a Sebago brew pub and restaurant attached to it. No parking choice other than valet. It's not expensive but I hate paying to park in general. Nice amenities, very good gym which I...

I had stayed at the nearby Hilton Garden Inn several times, but tried the Hampton for this visit. I was delighted with the staff and facility, and found the location to be every bit as convenient to great restaurants and shops. The Hampton has a nice urban contemporary style that was very nice.

Very courteous staff! Very clean room! The breakfast choices were awesome. Easy check in and check out and the valet service was well handled. The fitness area and pool were very clean and well equipped.

This Hampton Inn is perfectly situated for walking to Casco Bay Ferry terminal, the Eastern Promenade trail, and many of Portland's finest restaurants like Fore Street, Eventide Oyster and Duckfat. Service was very responsive and friendly, and the breakfast buffet was convenient, though not very accommodating of a gluten-intolerant diner.

Stayed here for my bachelor party and had a blast! The location is great, the bar in the hotel is good, and the rooms were nice. The buffet breakfast was good and he staff was great. If you're going to Portland I highly recommend staying here because it is close to some great bars and restaurants
