We are from the Chicago area and have stayed at many hotels, The Four Seasons, W, The Ritz Carlton, etc. although the prices for this hotel are much lower, the service is not! The bellmen are at the ready when u pull up, always with a smile. Front desk staff are very helpful and courteous. If the weather is nice,... More

Nothing left to chance. When we thought of something we needed, we never had to ask. It was already there. Outstanding customer service from all staff. Room was awesome! Location is awesome. This may be a slightly more expensive hotel, but it is worth it. Value for service is exceptional. We should know. We are innkeepers, and this was a... More

I am not sure who was giving out the diamonds when they gave 4 to this hotel. From the not so cordial, unhappy, under trained front desk, to the cramped mildew smelling hole with the king bed - I had to jump over my husband to get in to- suite 238 was embarrassing and the lets just give you a...

At 8AM the day we would be arriving at this hotel I received a call from the Front Desk Manager telling us that they have had air conditioning issues with some of the rooms, they were completely full and the room we were going to be in is one that has AC issues. Now I thought she was just going... More

My husband and I only stayed for one night but we liked the big bathroom with glass shower and that it had plenty of counter space. The air conditioning worked well and despite being close to a busy street we were not bothered by the noise at all so when reading other reviews it really depends on how sensitive you... More

The hotel rooms are nice enough, but the hotel looks over a street of bars and we were up all night from the noise of a band playing under our room. The hotel isn't accommodating and their response to our complaint was - the website says we are in the city so you have to assume it will be noisy.... More

Thank you for sharing your feedback . Although we are fortunate to be located in the heart of the Old Port district in Portland and convenient to the many beautiful shops, the vast array of award winning restaurants and the water front, we also must contend with the nightlife and city noise that can indeed be disturbing for our guests...

We stayed here in the past and found the hotel to be fine, maybe a little better--despite its quirks. This visit--all quirks and no substance. Some of my complaints are really quibbles: No one knowing that we had stayed there before. How many times do I have to hear: "Have you stayed here before?" Doesn't the computer show that?-Isn't it...
