This was my first time in Maine, let me tell you this hotel couldn't have been any better! Such an amazing home feel with the touch of a hotel. The chocolate lobsters on the pillow made my day. There is valet parking under the hotel, which is super convenient. Also be sure to pay the extra money to get the... More

We stayed at this hotel same time last year and were unimpressed but decided to give it another shot this winter. We booked the executive suite to celebrate mine and my husbands birthdays and also booked massages at Nine Stone and dinner at Fore Street. Everything was great, beyond great, except the hotel. The room was ok, has a big... More

Every January Daisy Doo makes us go on a food and beer trip to Portland as it is the opposite of what Woodstock VT has to offer. This hotel is always welcoming and the staff are excellent. The two valet parking guys could not have been more helpful and Taryn in the restaurant who served us breakfast was very personable... More

I had an enjoyable stay at the hotel and was delighted with the attentive staff, beginning with the valet and continuing with the front desk clerk. Location in the center of the Olde Port is perfect and the accommodations were perfect. Clean, friendly, welcoming. Will stay there every time I'm in Portland.

The staff is super friendly. In the heart of downtown. The valet were very accommodating going out of their way for us. Didn’t use the restaurant but it looked quaint and cheerful. Fun town with great restaurants and breweries that the staff recommended. All the recommendations were perfect, Thanks Reggie!! Starbucks coffee on each floor was very convenient. Turndown service...

My husband and I stayed in one of the suites with a fireplace, sitting area and a soak tub. I have stayed at many hotels and I believe that this is the most romantic. I only wish we could have stayed longer. We also decided to eat dinner at the hotel because it was late when we got in. Usually... More

The hotel is lovely but so are lots of hotels. The staff in the bar & restaurant (named "Eve's") especially Hanna - were warm and delightful, the ambience welcoming and comfortable and food quite good and well priced. In this reviewers opinion though - the staff are the distinguishing characteristic.
