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

In the heart of Portland, literally step out the door and you are on Four street where all the pubs and bars are, walk a block to the Harbor. Very nice outdoor area and bar. Food was excellent. Rooms were are excellent. Not a cheap hotel, if you are looking for value try, LaQuinta for $100, its a $3 taxi... 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

Ideally situated in downtown Portland, we stayed 1 night here with our family of 4 during our New England summer vacation. Very clean and comfortable. Hotel staff was very friendly. Comfortable bicycles (with helmets and locks) are available at the hotel for free rental and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring the shore trails with them! Being we were only there for... 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

Recently stayed at the Portland Harbor Hotel on a tour of New England with the family. Loved everything about the hotel from the room, the food, the location to the staff.

Portland Harbor Hotel How can this still exist, an hotel that looks as if in 50 years the interior has not been changed or updated, yes it may have been renovated but not renewed or adapted to modern design, the interior reminds of hotels in the late 1980s, too much brown, lack of distinction, atmosphere. Its hard to get your... More

First, it's not on the harbor, but I don't think any of the hotels in Portland are on the harbor. You can see the harbor from many of the rooms and you can certainly hear and smell it. Mostly in a good way. If you have never been to Portland Maine, then this is the area of town you want... More
