Amenities were top notch especially the breakfast and shuttle services to public transportation. Rooms were excellent and staff extremely helpful and friendly. The three in our family had plenty of space in our room and was able to choose our room with no difficulty in the are of the hotel we preferred.

The property is well appointed and well kept. The rooms and bedding are very nice. A short walk to anywhere you would want to go downtown, and the property has a shuttle that will take you to and from the airport, or any destination downtown. The property has a pub/restaurant attached. The higher floor Rooms with even numbers have water... More

We showed up at the Hampton Inn over an hour early and they had us in our room in 5 minutes. Not only that, but for some reason they upgraded us to the top floor, corner suite. It was AWESOME. The bed was super comfy, there was a great mini bar set up, and even a huge conference table for... More

The breakfast of the Hampton can not be beat! It's warm and delicious! The room was large, with plenty of room. Soft and comfortable beds, sheets, and comforter also a plus. The staff is terrific, giving our kids little coloring sets, and being very friendly when they were tired!

Super convenient location (everywhere you'd want to go it walk able). Standard rooms you'd expect from a Hampton Inn. Appears that there's a fee for parking (valet only?), I had to dispute the $15 charge for valet even though I took a cab here (they did remove the charge). Staff was friendly and breakfast was included. Attached brewery sells 6... More

This was a good choice close to downtown Portland. Just a short walk from many different restaurants and shops, and attached to the Sebago Brewing Company restaurant/bar. The room was fine, though the comforter and room smelled a little of smoke. The beds were comfortable but not great. The breakfast buffet was on the better end as far as free... More

This is one of the nicest Hampton Inns that I have stayed at. Hotel Décor is new and beautiful; Room was clean and comfortable. The best aspect of this hotel is its location. Amazing restaurants and the Old Port are a short walking distance. Breakfasts are typical, not outstanding. Be prepared to pay a hefty price in the summer months.... More

The location of the hotel is great to access duck fat, two fat cats and other places. the room we had is a corner room, beautiful view, and very... More
