Husband and I stayed here on our last night in Maine and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We probably had one of the smallest rooms in the hotel but it was nicely appointed and the location of the hotel is perfect for walking around downtown Portland. The valet attendants are extremely friendly and front desk staff is also friendly and efficient.... More

This was our second time here. The first was about 5 years ago. Super friendly staff. Rooms comfortable and very clean. Nice amenities. Especially loved the free bicycles. Nice little touches like free water. Starbucks and tea on every floor in the morning. So convenient to everything. We found the front desk staff and bellman so helpful,wit local things to... More

From the moment you arrive the atmosphere is friendly and attentive. Valet parking underground is inexpensive and very convenient for this busy little city. There is a Restaurant and Bar on the main level which is one level up off the street. Elevators and a sweeping staircase from the street level for convenience when walking about town. The rooms are... More

We spent a lovely weekend at this elegant downtown hotel. From the hotel we walked everywhere. All the shopping museums restaurants attractions we easily found in part thanks to the terrific concierge desk at the hotel. We enjoyed our room too. Plenty of space for us and our gear. We'd happily return.

We have stayed here on several occasions, and must say it really can't be beat. The location is great, the staff is experienced, and you really feel like it is so much more than a typical chain hotel experience. Do yourself a favor and stay here if your purpose in Portland is to explore, enjoy and be within walking distance... More

We stayed in a Jr. Suite for 1 night, and the "sleeper sofa" was inadequate, and there was really nowhere to sit and work in the room. However, the location cannot be beat, and the staff were all friendly and provided great service. Did not eat at hotel restaurant.

This is beautifully renovated hotel in a central location. From the moment we arrived until we left we enjoyed ourselves. Our garden view room was nicely appointed and the beds very comfortable. The food was excellent as well. The courtyard garden is a little oasis in the middle of the city. What sets this place apart from many others, in... More

Can't imagine how it could be better. Staff were all very nice and helpful. They even let us check in a little early since we arrived early and the room was ready. Very nice rooms. Get one with a courtyard view (we were in Room 316 which overlooked the sitting area by the fire). We enjoyed sitting in the courtyard... More

Central location, friendly and very courteous staff, modern bathroom, comfortable room (not large but perfectly sized) and most importantly; immaculate. Free efficient Wi-Fi. Good morning coffee is available on each floor until 10:30AM. Lovely lobby (w/Concierge) and bar that offers happy hour drinks and small plate appetizers, along with a beautiful outdoor dining area. Car and driver available by arrangement... More

I stayed in this hotel in April with my children and husband. We really enjoyed it. It is in a great location; great room, clean, nicely decorated, comfortable. Great location. The service was excellent. We had breakfast in the restaurant and it was very good. I would highly recommend this hotel.
