Friendly staff, clean and well organized hotel, very nice bed. Excellent breakfast. Is a $15 fee for parking. The hotel is within walking distance of some downtown tourist attractions such as the Portland Art Museum.

I thought the hotel was very clean and comfortable, nice breakfast, friendly staff. You have to pay $15 to park and it's valet only. I did have an issue late at night coming in with some men loitering in the driveway, I felt like they were casing my car to steal it. The valet parked it and it was fine... More

We recently stayed at the Hampton Waterfront and I was so pleasantly surprised. I was expecting chain hotel experience but these guys really go above and beyond. It almost feels like a boutique or finer hotel experience. Only drawback, and it wasn't a huge deal, is the mandatory $15 per day valet parking charge. The property is new so the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights over the Easter weekend in April 2015, We had a fantastic room (we were upgraded) to a King suite. The room was huge, with a large bed in one half and a nice sofa in the other half in a living/ kitchen area. The views across the harbour were great out of two huge... More

We got to Portland around 1:00 PM the day of a party in town. I had requested an early check-in, but my room was not available. After discussing it for a few minutes with the person at the desk, a room became available (attributed to good luck, or good debate skills?). Room was spacious and clean - beds were a... More

This Hampton was very clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful about map for downtown Portland. Quiet and large size rooms. Breakfast in morning was provided. Close to downtown and able to walk. Valet parking felt safe.

Wasted space in the entrance to the room with lots of ceramic tile - strange layout. Other than that trivia, room was great. Lots of plugs, great shades, had a water view. Sebago restaurant attached to the hotel is great. Had delicious fish and chips.

You must have been in a corner room. We try to use those especially for guests who request a rollaway bed because of the space available. Glad you enjoyed Portland and our hotel. Please come see us again. Sincerely, Pete Wagner General Manager More

Wonderful hotel across from ferry terminal. Great views of harbor. Just around the corner from our favorite bakery, Standard, and a great coffee place, Arabica. Easy and reasonable valet parking. Very comfortable beds.

We love the location of this hotel, so close to restaurants, waterfront, shops, and the Old Port. The rooms are nice and clean plus they have refrigerators and microwaves. It has a nice, typical Hampton Inn, breakfast which adds some value to compensate for the room cost plus a $15 charge for parking. The front desk staff was friendly and... More
