I would just like to say that the Portland Harbor Hotel is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. My boyfriend surprised me with a night in Portland and chose not to partake in a room with a garden view. I can honestly say, it didn't make a difference. Our room faced Wharf Street and was absolutely beautiful.... More

We traveled from Montana on vacation and spent a day in Portland and one in Boston. Our stay in Portland at the Harbor Hotel was outstanding. The staff was very friendly and outgoing. The room lived up to the **** rating and the service/ food in the restaurant was also top notch. The Hotel recomended several points of interest and... More

We have been coming back to the hotel year after year for good reason: excellence. The first thing you notice is the incredible enthusiasm and helpfulness of every staff member, from the associate who picked us up at the airport, to the concierge to the housekeepers. The hotel is in a wonderful location near the water and a delightful shopping... More

My wife and I first came to Portland Harbor Hotel 5 years ago on our Honeymoon. We have been back every year since, even if only for a night. We have always found the staff and accomodations to be of highest quality. We enjoy getting away for a night of luxury in an otherwise Hectic schedule. We have stayed here... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here last weekend...and thoroughly enjoyed it! The room was lovely and the bathroom was amazing! Huge tub, and fab walk in shower! The staff were so helpful, the receptionist came straight up to our room when we had a problem working the tv, and the car and driver service was unreal! The lovely driver dropped... More

Our one night stay at the Portland Harbor Hotel was pleasant and relaxing. The beds were soft and comfortable. Based on the pictures, I feared a decrepit old dirty grandma hotel, but this place was actually quite comfy and clean. I was really looking for a modern looking B&B but there were none to be found in the area, and... More

My husband, daughter and I stayed for two nights at the Portland Harbor a few weeks back. We had a truly bad experience with service, starting with check in when we were not given the garden facing room we had paid addition money for to the shower drain that was never unclogged to the need to pull someone from housekeeping...

The facilities are very nice, the rooms are comfortable and the hotel is well located in the Old Port section of town. The problem we encountered was that, although the staff was very friendly and helpful, the hotel was understaffed. This is particularly the case with respect to valet parking with respect to which I was at one point unable... More

We had stayed at the Portland Harbor Hotel previously, and always enjoyed it. This time was no different. It's clean, the location is great (within walking distance to everything!), staff is helpful, professional and friendly, and the rooms are lovely. FYI - there was no room safe, so leave your valuables at home. Also, no bar fridge, but that wasn't... More

I checked into my room at 10 pm which was too late for any room service or food, the restaurant closed at 9:30 on a Friday evening, I asked for an extra blanket for my room, the flabbergasted front desk told me that he had searched the entire hotel and there was not one to be found. I was rudely... More
