Staff from the valet to front desk to housekeeping was phenomenal. We felt so welcomed. Room was beautiful. But, if you want to sleep, the loud music at night from bars across the street will keep you up until very very late. Will request a quiet room next time.

Thank you fro providing your feedback regarding your recent stay with us and the Trip Advisor Community. Our well regarded Old Port location, offering our guests the convenience of walking to area shops and restaurants can indeed be noisy in the warmer months when the city gets into full gear. We apologize that your sleep was disturbed. Indeed, our garden... More

Very nice hotel, excellent location can walk to most everything we need to get to, room a tad small but lovely. We had a view of the inner courtyard which was quiet. Fresh coffee available in hallway each morning was great touch. Will stay here again next time we get back to Portland.

This hotel is very well located, close to everything. The concierge Reginald was very helpful to find good restaurants and attractions. The room was adequate and quiet. The price for the breakfast was very expensive so we decided to go elsewhere. Overall, this hotel was very good but a bit pricey.

Requested a quiet room. It was quieter than my own home. I slept like a baby. Very helpful and friendly staff. Directed me to a CVS when I needed eye drops. Then to a lovely restaurant for dinner. So friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend the Portland Harbor Hotel.

We weren't sure where to stay in Old Port and luckily picked PHH. Really easy location to find and access to Port area is simple. Staff was courteous and helpful. Room was very clean and comfortable if not spacious. Only had breakfast here - too many great local spots to explore for dinner - but it was delicious. Felt like... More

This happened on the 3rd night of my stay in April. The desk called me in the AM to tell me what happened (huge crack in liftgate) and said their insurance would take care of it. That was good but given I had a friend's car, it pretty much ruined my stay. When I looked at copy of bill the... More

I stayed at the Portland Harbor Hotel for 3 nights last week for a mother/daughter getaway. The location was incredible, steps away from every must-do on a visit to Portland. The rooms were quiet and peaceful (perhaps due to the off-season visit), but even in the summertime I can imagine that the New England charm of the hotel would complete... More

We stayed At the Portland Harbor Hotel April 24-26, 2015. What a wonderful cozy beautiful hotel. The lobby is a great meeting place for people, the room we had was such a great size and beautifully appointed and the bathroom was very upscale. Free Starbuck coffee on every floor in the morning was a wonderful treat as well. The real... More

We visited Portland for a 5-year dating anniversary, and were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to the honeymoon suite for our stay. The Concierge had arranged for a beautiful bouquet of flowers for the room (despite short notice...oops), which was beautifully appointed, and comped us a cocktails at the bar. Service was friendly and knowledgeable throughout the stay. The one... More
