When I pay nearly 250 dollars a night, I expect more than what the Portland Harbor Hotels offers. We were put in a room on the first floor with a perfect view of a garden hose. It was next to the housekeeping closest so it tended to be a little loud (not too terrible). The room was always stuffy but... More

The hotel is situated in a great place close to the harbor with a staff that is super. Everyone had a smile and the front desk hostess knew my name as soon as I checked in and called me by name the entire stay. Rooms were very nice with a refrigerator. The bathroom had both a tub and a separate... More

We had a really nice suite overlooking the courtyard. Everything about our stay was excellent. The staff is helpful and friendly. The hotel is just a short walk to the harbor where all the shops and restaurants are located. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I would definitely stay there again. Maine is beautiful and our stay was much... More

I've made a number of shorts visits to Portland Maine because it's a short easy flight from where I live when I just want a quick change of scenery. I 've stayed 3 times at the Portland Harbor Hotel. The staff is meticulous in taking care if your needs, it's location is excellent and the rooms are very nice. Just... More

The Portland Harbor Hotel is a perfectly fine hotel, just not for the prices that they charge. We spent one night there. We could not afford to stay longer. The hotel is on Fore Street, down near the docks (which are still working fishing docks) and within easy walking distance of the trendier areas of town. The location is excellent,... More

Thank you for your extensive and well written review of our hotel. As a boutique style hotel in the heart of the Old Port district, our rooms are uniquely appointed and individually designed to create a warm and cozy atmosphere. I have noted your suggestion for an additional bedside table and appreciate this feedback. With limited city parking, our valet... More

This hotel has extremely poor service. From hotel check-in to food service, they fail to meet the basic requirements of a hotel that claims to be 4 star rated. In fact, they were unable to deliver room service due to the fact that they were short staffed. Additionally, they actually ran out of food and instead of an entree (which... More

Dear Keyvan, Please accept my personal apologies for the any service challenges you may have experienced during your 5 night stay at our hotel. I have looked back through our many request logs, room service and shift reports to see where specifically we could have let you down. I have also tried to reach you personally to discuss and would... More

We always feel welcome here. It is ideally situated and everyone is friendly. Our room was large and quiet (not facing the street). It had a separate shower which we appreciate. The NYT was available in the lobby, which was also appreciated. The fitness center was good.

We stayed three nights and wanted a hotel located to explore Portland, this location was perfect, the bar was friendly and breakfast in the court yard was excellent. The room was comfortable, but, we had a room with a small window and no view, made the room rather dark and uninteresting, would probably request a room with a court yard... More

July 3, 2014 stay. Left us feeling that the Harbor caters mainly to business clientele - very efficient but lacking a little in the romance. In retrospect, nothing but superlatives to report regarding the check list items. Location great, service (we were exposed to valet, bellmen, housekeeping and front desk) top notch, pet friendly (!), nice room, walk-in shower. Just... More

This hotel in Portland is really quite a find. The rooms are luxe with particularly nice bathrooms. The lobby is inviting with a nice fireplace and bar. What really stood out, though, was the service which far exceeded expectations. From the concierge to the bellmen, to the car which they sent to pick us up for dinner on a freeeeezing... More
