The Portland Harbor Hotel is a perfectly fine hotel, just not for the prices that they charge. We spent one night there. We could not afford to stay longer. The hotel is on Fore Street, down near the docks (which are still working fishing docks) and within easy walking distance of the trendier areas of town. The location is excellent,... More

This hotel has extremely poor service. From hotel check-in to food service, they fail to meet the basic requirements of a hotel that claims to be 4 star rated. In fact, they were unable to deliver room service due to the fact that they were short staffed. Additionally, they actually ran out of food and instead of an entree (which... More

We always feel welcome here. It is ideally situated and everyone is friendly. Our room was large and quiet (not facing the street). It had a separate shower which we appreciate. The NYT was available in the lobby, which was also appreciated. The fitness center was good.

We stayed three nights and wanted a hotel located to explore Portland, this location was perfect, the bar was friendly and breakfast in the court yard was excellent. The room was comfortable, but, we had a room with a small window and no view, made the room rather dark and uninteresting, would probably request a room with a court yard... More

July 3, 2014 stay. Left us feeling that the Harbor caters mainly to business clientele - very efficient but lacking a little in the romance. In retrospect, nothing but superlatives to report regarding the check list items. Location great, service (we were exposed to valet, bellmen, housekeeping and front desk) top notch, pet friendly (!), nice room, walk-in shower. Just... More

This hotel in Portland is really quite a find. The rooms are luxe with particularly nice bathrooms. The lobby is inviting with a nice fireplace and bar. What really stood out, though, was the service which far exceeded expectations. From the concierge to the bellmen, to the car which they sent to pick us up for dinner on a freeeeezing... More

We recently stayed at the Portland Harbor Hotel for two nights (Thurs and Fri night). We had to switch hotels midway through our trip because they were booked for the amount of time we wanted to stay in Portland. By Saturday morning we didn't want to check out, so thats a good sign. The location was fabulous, clean rooms, adequate... More

We had an excellent 5 night stay at this classy place. Room (we paid up for a jacuzzi) was large, comfortable and well maintained (though the aircon was perhaps a little noisy). Staff were unfailingly polite and friendly, and the location was excellent. Oh, and the fast free wifi was a joy. May well return.

Great ambience, facilities, service and location (but in a small town is there a poor location ?). Really nice room. But be prepared to pay, it's priced up / high accordingly. Would I stay again. Well for sure

We are from the Chicago area and have stayed at many hotels, The Four Seasons, W, The Ritz Carlton, etc. although the prices for this hotel are much lower, the service is not! The bellmen are at the ready when u pull up, always with a smile. Front desk staff are very helpful and courteous. If the weather is nice,... More
