The Portland Harbor Hotel has been a favorite of mine for several years now, I have fond memories of spending evenings celebrating birthdays, or self-love "just because" occassions. In particular, i've had a great deal of fun staying at the hotel with a best friend-- the front desk is incredibly knowledgeable about the various restaurants in the Old Port area,... More

There are no words to describe how incredibly accommodating the staff at this hotel are. My husband blew out a tire at the Hyatt across the street and I needed to stay an extra night in Portland to try to find a shop to fix my car while he and our friends went home. Because I was stuck unexpectedly, I... More

This hotel deserves every one of their 4 diamonds!! The entire staff is welcoming and friendly making sure that you have everything you need. The Valet and underground parking was wonderful with the snow and minus degree temperatures we experienced. The rooms were beautifully appointed with meticulous attention to detail from the comfortable King bed and pillows to high end... More

From the time the valet greets you with a smile, to the time he closes the door for your departure, you will not be disappointed. The entire hotel staff from the concierge to the housekeeping, valets to room service, they are friendly, helpful and eager to make your stay the best it can be. It snowed one of the evenings...

We just returned from a weekend cut short by another Blizzard in the NE, only able to stay at the hotel for 1 night. It is a beautiful, well thought out hotel with every amenity at your finger tips. Comfortable rooms, nice areas to relax and unwind, wonderful food and hospitality was bar-none. I had a massage with Cassandra. Very... More

I stayed for my second visit last evening. Each time all of the staff is just wonderful. From John behind the bar, to Mustafa (go ahead, you know you want to say it!) and Dillon in Guest Services to Reggie the concierge, they just can't do enough for you! More importantly, they act welcoming. How important is this? I recently... More

This by far is the nicest hotel I have stayed at and I have frequented many Hiltons and top rated hotels around the country. This hotel understands what is important to a good stay.

We returned in January for what is now our annual getaway. Running an award winning Inn located in Woodstock VT we know what we want when we travel, and this place continually delivers a great stay. We again had a room overlooking the internal courtyard, which is the quietest place to be. We watched the forthcoming ice bar being carved... More
