I loved this hotel! It was a great value for the price. The location is excellent, within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. The interior is cozy, the room was very clean and comfortable, and the staff were all very service oriented. I had a room overlooking the side street and had no problem with noise (as has been...

Travelled for business and stayed for one night. A very charming, quiet, comfortable hotel with extremely friendly service right in the heart of the old port area. It also has a very nice bar and restaurant. Was there in winter, but the garden looks like it would be very nice in warm weather. Bathroom was large and shower was great.... More

In the winter, many of our guests enjoy the new fire pit with a... More

I travel a lot for work, typically staying in a hotel 100+ nights a year. Yet, when my wife and I want to get away for a quick weekend trip, we inevitably end up at the Portland Harbor Hotel. When you first arrive at the property the bellmen and valet kids are professional, helpful and eager to make a very... More

The rooms were luxurious. The location was great. The employees were friendly. At $300 a night, you would expect all that. (I know that's going rate for their high season in that area, but it's still a lot of money). What leaves a bad taste in my mouth and why I won't be returning to this hotel is the parking... More

My husband and I stayed here one night to attend an event nearby. We were hoping to get a B&B but no place was available as it was still high season (mid-September). Portland Harbor Hotel was the next best thing, but perhaps even better! Comfy bed, soft sheets, hardwood floors, everything spotless. This is one of the best hotels in... More

We stayed overnight for New Year's Eve. The hotel is wonderful, we had a very nice room. The special touches were nice...bathrobes, slippers, chocolate lobsters, and champagne. The entire staff was excellent, form the parking guys all the way to the concierge. Hotel bar was comfortable and welcoming too.

My husband and I stayed for two nights after Christmas. The location was very convenient and the service was excellent. The room we had was oddly shaped and the air condition unit was very loud. We chose the garden side and it was a bit loud due to people hanging out by the fire pit. They had great coffee in... More

As well as having the best location for food and shopping in the Old Port, the staff at this hotel are amazing! Front desk went out of their way to make our honeymoon perfect and Ercan, Melody B, and Kristin are superstars! The hotel was even able to deliver a dozen red long stem roses with very short notice and... More

We went with friends for New Year's Eve and it was a wonderful experience! The staff members are professional, courteous, and friendly. Laraine was especially nice at check-out as she remembered talking to me on the telephone the day before we arrived. Our room was elegant, quiet, and nicely appointed. The bed was very comfortable. There are warnings that the... More

We stayed in the Junior Suite with garden view. Nice furnishings, comfortable bed (pillows were a bit lumpy), nice bathroom with tub and separate shower, and the floor was faux hardwood with nice area rugs. We got a good price by paying in advance. Turn down service was nice. That evening there was a lot of snow and wind and... More
