No complaints from us on our overnight stay. Nice rooms, comfy beds; that's all you want, really. Friendly service, too - but then the guy on reception that day was from our part of the world, so... ;) The valet parking was neatly arranged as well.

We spent a quick overnight here. Perfect location. Very convenient to the best parts of the old town. Room looked out on garden and harbor. The facilities were first rate but the thing that really stood out was how friendly every staff member of the hotel was.

This Hotel is right in the hub of the old port area. Staff is very friendly and accommodating parking is $28 per night for the valet parking. The rooms were clean however the bathroom floor looked like it had not been washed. Also this is the only luxury hotel that I stayed at that actually had scratches sheets. It was... More

Husband and I stayed here on our last night in Maine and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We probably had one of the smallest rooms in the hotel but it was nicely appointed and the location of the hotel is perfect for walking around downtown Portland. The valet attendants are extremely friendly and front desk staff is also friendly and efficient.... More

From the moment you arrive the atmosphere is friendly and attentive. Valet parking underground is inexpensive and very convenient for this busy little city. There is a Restaurant and Bar on the main level which is one level up off the street. Elevators and a sweeping staircase from the street level for convenience when walking about town. The rooms are... More

We spent a lovely weekend at this elegant downtown hotel. From the hotel we walked everywhere. All the shopping museums restaurants attractions we easily found in part thanks to the terrific concierge desk at the hotel. We enjoyed our room too. Plenty of space for us and our gear. We'd happily return.

We have stayed here on several occasions, and must say it really can't be beat. The location is great, the staff is experienced, and you really feel like it is so much more than a typical chain hotel experience. Do yourself a favor and stay here if your purpose in Portland is to explore, enjoy and be within walking distance... More

We stayed in a Jr. Suite for 1 night, and the "sleeper sofa" was inadequate, and there was really nowhere to sit and work in the room. However, the location cannot be beat, and the staff were all friendly and provided great service. Did not eat at hotel restaurant.

This is beautifully renovated hotel in a central location. From the moment we arrived until we left we enjoyed ourselves. Our garden view room was nicely appointed and the beds very comfortable. The food was excellent as well. The courtyard garden is a little oasis in the middle of the city. What sets this place apart from many others, in... More
