Clean modern rooms with lots of amenities. We chose the garden rooms because the reservation staff said they were quieter but it is not worth the extra charge because there was still some noise from Commercial Street and they face an office building on one side. Great concierge service. Efficient valet parking. Only complaint was extremely slow breakfast service from... More

What a great place to stay in Portland. Only 5 star hotel there. Right in center of town, walking distance to the water front, shops, restaurants, etc. Did not need a car in 3 days. Beautiful interior. Very large, clean rooms, ours overlooked the courtyard out back. Firepit nightly, great place for lunch or breakfast. The inside bar is great.... More

We booked this hotel for an overnight getaway from Boston's 'burbs. Portland was a town we had "passed through" but just far enough away from home that we had never taken the time to explore more in depth. We had even taken the Nova Star Cruise to Canada (see my earlier review) and had driven up just in time to... More

We had a lovely stay here. The decor is very traditional, sort of old country inn. The staff was very accommodating and the location was excellent. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable, although our room overlooked some kind of ventilation shaft, which we could hear in our room, there was no audible noise from other guests. The average age... More

We stayed here only one night on our way South and wished it had been longer. Virtually everything we experienced exceeded expectations, but the service level is what separates this hotel from so many others in the luxury category. From stepping out of our car in the valet parking area to stepping back into it to continue on our way,... More

This is a very nice, elegant hotel. It is an old hotel that has been beautifully updated and it is charming and comfortable. You can feel the ambiance of class and service as soon as you arrive, from the staff who are very polite and welcoming and from the warmth of the traditional decor, it is a special place. Everything... More

Recently finished a two-day stay here, and it was a very good place to stay for the old harbor area of Portland, ME. The hotel has a garage under the building for 18 per day, a good deal given the parking in that part of town. The hotel staff who greet you in the garage are professional and they hustle... More

My wife and I traveled to Portland, ME for our baby moon. This was our first visit to the state, and we lucked out by picking the Portland Harbor Hotel. Which we found on Trip Advisor. The hotel was so charming, and the service and room exceeded our expectations. We loved our stone fireplace in front of our bed and... More
