What a wonderful hotel. The rooms are very clean and nice. It is right near the waterfront and located near all the little shops, restaurants and pubs. I was only able to stay 1 night, but I would love to go back and stay longer next time. The staff is very courteous and helpful. There is a small restaurant and... More

Visited for 2 nights with my daughter to evaluate for a future business conference. The entire staff was extremely responsive, the food very good, and services perfect. We forgot a coat there.

Thank you so much for your kind 5 Star review of The Portland Harbor Hotel. We agree that offering complimentary fresh brewed Starbucks coffee on every guest room floor, is far superior than the typical in-room coffee maker. We are glad that you appreciated this as well.

Again, just checked in, in calling I asked if they had all cotton sheets. Obviously if I asked I reAlly care. The small pillow on the bed is all cotton but sheets I don't think so, should have brought my own pillow. The pillowcases areso rough.

This hotel in Portland, Maine was an excellent choice. I went by all the other reviews before I booked this hotel and it was a good choice. Rooms were very clean and cozy. It is close to all and we didnt even use the car to get around. We walked to all of our destinations.

My wife and I spent two nights here on a recent road trip, and it very much fit the bill. It's fairly typical city hotel in some respects, but the rooms were clean and nice, hospitality was good and valet service was especially convenient and courteous. The location was perfect for exploring both the waterfront and the center of town... More

I stayed at this property as part of a photo trek recently. I found my room to be very comfy, well appointed, with lots of storage. The bathroom stands out as it is very well done, roomy.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay in one of the Portland Harbor Hotel's jacuzzi suites with one king sized bed. The staff was very personable and helpful.

Excellent staff, nice enough facility but the door to our bathroom was broken and should have been caught before the room was rented to us. Biggest thing to beware of is that rooms facing the street are bombarded by the live bands from the bars. Even w/ the double windows shut the room vibrates like crazy until 1 in the... More

It is truly unfortunate that your experience at our hotel was less than the perfect stay we strive to ensure all of our guests enjoy. The convenience of being located in the heart of the " Old Port" district, also poses challenges for some guests that are not here to enjoy the nightlife and outdoor music. Please know that we...

They are located right on Fore Street so all of the best restaurants in Portland are within walking distance. You walk out the door, you are on cobblestone streets shopping and dining!
