Recently finished a two-day stay here, and it was a very good place to stay for the old harbor area of Portland, ME. The hotel has a garage under the building for 18 per day, a good deal given the parking in that part of town. The hotel staff who greet you in the garage are professional and they hustle... More

My wife and I traveled to Portland, ME for our baby moon. This was our first visit to the state, and we lucked out by picking the Portland Harbor Hotel. Which we found on Trip Advisor. The hotel was so charming, and the service and room exceeded our expectations. We loved our stone fireplace in front of our bed and... More

I have stayed here several times and have yet to be disappointed! This hotel is in the center of everything, has a delicious (however not included) breakfast, offers complimentary transportation, and has a great staff! The staff did a great job when I stayed here this late August, they really were willing to go out of their way for me.... More

We read the reviews before booking this hotel and took advice of many recommendations and booked rooms facing the inner courtyard. Rooms were quiet, clean and so comfortable. Hotel was in the middle of everything - made it easy to walk everywhere. Staff was very friendly. Loved the morning coffee service on our floor! They picked us up at the... More

The hotel is in a perfect location for strolling the downtown area. Rooms are smallish but were clean and the linens very nice. The hotel did send an email disclosing street noise, however it is not just street noise it is loud band noise with the constant beat of a base...pretty annoying . This is not under the control of...

Thank you for sharing your valuable feedback with the Trip Advisor community and telling us about your experience. Please know that we do offer garden side accommodations that offer a quieter night sleep. During the peak summer months, the Old Port area is indeed a busy place with live music and city happenings. It is much quieter in the fall... More

The room was beautiful and our window overlooked the inner courtyard. Bedding/linens were comfortable and the bathroom was great. I got really sick for 24 out of the 48 hours I was in the Portland and so I really got my money's worth with this hotel room. If I was going to be completely incapacitated and sick on vacation, this... More

Stayed at the Portland Harbor for a conference. Truly a beautiful hotel. I arrived a couple hours early and was allowed to check in right away. I was surprised with a water view. The room was nicely decorated though oddly shaped - was at the end of a hallway so a long, narrow room. Mattress was a little firm for... More
