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

I have stayed here several times and have yet to be disappointed! This hotel is in the center of everything, has a delicious (however not included) breakfast, offers complimentary transportation, and has a great staff! The staff did a great job when I stayed here this late August, they really were willing to go out of their way for me.... More

We read the reviews before booking this hotel and took advice of many recommendations and booked rooms facing the inner courtyard. Rooms were quiet, clean and so comfortable. Hotel was in the middle of everything - made it easy to walk everywhere. Staff was very friendly. Loved the morning coffee service on our floor! They picked us up at the... More

In the heart of Portland, literally step out the door and you are on Four street where all the pubs and bars are, walk a block to the Harbor. Very nice outdoor area and bar. Food was excellent. Rooms were are excellent. Not a cheap hotel, if you are looking for value try, LaQuinta for $100, its a $3 taxi... More

The hotel is in a perfect location for strolling the downtown area. Rooms are smallish but were clean and the linens very nice. The hotel did send an email disclosing street noise, however it is not just street noise it is loud band noise with the constant beat of a base...pretty annoying . This is not under the control of...

Brenda G, Manager at Portland Harbor Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for sharing your valuable feedback with the Trip Advisor community and telling us about your experience. Please know that we do offer garden side accommodations that offer a quieter night sleep. During the peak summer months, the Old Port area is indeed a busy place with live music and city happenings. It is much quieter in the fall... More
