Many indications that this is a nice s hotel but ultimately a guest judges a stay by being able to sleep! Sandwiched between a utility room and a very noisy nightclub operating until the early hours, we were not able to sleep. Hotel management were 'unable to help' as we were staying at peak time (with peak prices) so that... More

I truly apologize for the noise issues you experienced while staying as guests at our hotel. While every effort is made to encourage our guests to reserve garden side accommodations to ensure a quieter night sleep, you are correct that during periods of sold out occupancies, our ability to relocate your room or for you to reserve it, may not...

Stayed for a night with family after flying into Boston from Europe. We were tired but staff were very friendly and the rooms smartly furnished though not huge. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was pricey and not that family friendly. Common parts also stylish and the hotel well located downtown. Not astonishing value.

We were attending our nephew's wedding in Portland and chose the Portland Harbor Hotel because it is a boutique hotel. We were not disappointed. The hotel is stylish in an American way, with all the amenities you would expect. The breakfast in the beautiful courtyard was delicious. When we had to wait a long time on the second morning for...

Relatively standard business traveler type hotel in an excellent location near the harbor and downtown Portland, Maine with convenient on-site parking. Front desk was helpful, restaurant breakfast was very satisfying, and the bar even carried some great port! Not a "destination hotel" but a perfectly adequate location to set up shop comfortably in Portland. Twitter and Instagram: @kmptop10

Portland is a great city for the sights, sounds and most of all food! We stayed at this hotel and it was a perfect location to tour this walkable city. Close to all restaurants and shops.

My wife and I just returned from Portland Harbor Hotel and although the venue was fine, i wanted to share a bad customer service experience.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and especially for returning my email to you and discussing your concerns with me personally via telephone. As I explained, our hotel never " pre-charges" for incidentals, a credit card is obtained and a reservation of credit is held to ensure available funds on departure. We are very sorry that... More

This hotel is situated in a great spot near the Old Port and the Old Port shopping and watering holes,. Walking to most of the interesting places in Portland is easy.

The room was quite comfortable with comfortable beds, nice flat screen, and a well appointed bathroom and vanity with drawers and surface area to hold your personal items. Parking is $18 but they have a complimentary car service which was extremely useful for us - the drivers and the concierge encouraged us to use this service - this added alot... More

Great location in in the heart of Portland. Clean comfortable well appointed room and bathroom. I did choose a courtyard view which is higher priced because I heard that street noise could be a problem at night. There is a coffee station set each morning on every floor which is a nice touch. Had breakfast one morning at Eve's and... More

At $350 for a one night stay on a Friday night in July, I found it to be way too expensive for the money. First, you are only allowed officially to check in at 4 pm but check out is 11 am so you are only paying for 19 hours. The staff are personable, willing to help from the front... More
