Chosen because of location. Easy check in and great valet service. The lobby is large with great natural lighting and fantastic decorations. Room was spacious and modern with a decent view of the Portland waterfront. Both the room and bathroom were very clean. Bed comfort was the only issue we had. Breakfast was a reasonably priced buffet with a surplus... More

've lost track of how many times we have stayed at this hotel! We return again and again due to it's perfect location, and accommodating staff. We are always made to feel welcome, and if any issues arise, they are taken care of in a timely fashion. The front desk staff were great! Don't be afraid to take advantage of... More

I chose this hotel for its proximity to the waterfront/ downtown area. The location was great for our weekend getaway, and the hotel was wonderful. The staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and even the valets were engaging and cheerful. The room was very good, large and comfortable. It was a great value. Negatives: mattress was a little too soft,... More

Not only do you get a great clean room, in walking distance to everything downtown, you get supurb food and the bar hostess is very courtious, happy and a joy in providing service as you sit next to the warm cozy fire.

We are Hilton fans. This hotel is lovely. We stay in suite 618. The suite has plenty of space and has an absolutely fantastic view. Everyone does everything to make your stay perfect. Standard Bakery is right out their door which in only another plus!!!!! Well done all around.

We love staying at the Hilton Garden on Commercial St in Portland... great facility, grand views (we always get a room with a water view), and very convenient to many great places to eat. Whether it's a single night or a full week, we never tire of staying here. We make a point of staying at this Hilton when traveling... More

Hotel is in a great spot across from the Casco Bay Lines terminal and in front of one of Portland's best restaurants. It's right in the heart of the Old Port shopping, dining and bar district. The hotel features nice rooms with microwaves and a Keurig coffee maker, relatively comfortable beds and plenty of drawer and closet space. The bathroom... More

Had a great weekend stay at Hilton Garden Inn Portland. The woman at the front desk helped us when we weren't pleased with our room view. We were able to get a waterfront view and a quiet room. That's really all we needed and were pleased. The hotel has a smaller, comfortable feel. It's located right on the water, across... More
