Having grown up in the Portland harbor area has a special meaning for me. Seven decades of the changing waterfront's hidden treasures, exploring the markings on the older buildings, the transformations of the various hotels, motels and cabins, the smells of the various piers, and, of course, the restaurants beckoning for a friendly visitation. The history is on each and... More

We stayed at the Portland Harbor Hotel for a weekend to do some Christmas shopping. The location can't be beat for walking around the Old Port area without the hassle of parking. Every person who works there is friendly and bends over backwards to be helpful. If we stayed again, we would stay on the courtyard side of the property... More

Spent a great weekend in Portland in large part to the great hospitality of this hotel. Great location to walk to nearly everything you'll want to go to and when we did need a car, they were kind enough to arrange. From the valet/car park to the concierge to the front desk staff...everyone seems to have a service culture embedded....nice... More

Stayed at the hotel for an Anniversary trip, great experience from all the reception staff, bar staff and waiters. The car valet guys were great, full of information about the area, things to see, places to eat and drink. We were upgraded to a Suite, lovely room with fire and huge jacuzzi bath . The bottle of champagne and chocolates... More

Smallish hotel in the great part of the city. Friendly staff and a great shuttle service to get you around if you need it. And Starbucks coffee on each floor in the morning outside the elevators. Nice room.

We stayed here for a nearby family event. Lovely room, comfortable bed, great location. I was truly blown away by the amazing staff. Everyone--from front desk and concierge to housekeeping--was cheerful and helpful always. Special shout out to the valet/car service staffers! If you stay, make sure to explore the neighborhood. It's loaded with great restaurants, bakeries and ice cream... More

When a relative of mine had to have outpatient surgery near Portland last week, we booked a room at the Portland Harbor Hotel and we were so glad we did. Every single member of the hotel staff from the valets to the bartender and waiters was so helpful when we returned from surgery. It was almost like recovering at home.... More

Excellent hotel and service. Our Executive Room with jacuzzi bath was a pleasant upgrade as celebrating a special anniversary. Car valet service was great, very helpful with directions etc. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant was good with plenty of choices. Lovely garden fire pit to sit around with a cocktail or a hot toddy.

We stopped off here for one night on a tour of New England. The hotel is in a great location within easy walking distance of everything you'll want to see in Portland. The concierge made a great restaurant recommendation for us, the whole experience was very memorable. We paid a little more for a courtyard luxury room, and it really... More
