From check in with the valet, to the front desk...we were treated like family. Hotel room was very large (standard,queen double). Coffee and microwave in room super clean. All staff very friendly and able to help us find all attractions and needs. Excellent location across from harbor and all the great shops. We will definitely go back.

Clean, quiet, all staff warm and welcoming, as well as unobtrusive yet helpful. Right on the edge of town so it's your choice to walk outside right into tourist scene or left onto the quieter shore park. Ferries to islands directly across the street. Only negative would be room windows don't open and I love fresh air.

My parents, who are in their 70's, and I, stayed here en route to Nth Maine for Christmas. The beds are the best I have ever slept on, anywhere in the world! The ambiance was only bettered by the welcoming warm greetings of the staff. It is right near the water, restaurants and sights. The rooms are clean and fresh... More

We stay at the Hilton Garden Inn, downtown/waterfront in Portland Maine. Lovely hotel and great staff. Can't wait to return in September. We visit Maine and stay at this hotel a couple times each year. The entire staff is always welcoming. The valets are great. They are welcoming and help us with ideas of where to go and restaurants that... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn in Portland for 2 nights. This was our second trip to Portland and the first staying at the Hilton. Our room was very spacious and very comfortable. The king size bed was so comfortable. The room had a huge window over looking Commercial Street and the water. It was... More

This was our first trip to Maine and we wanted to be near the water. This was right across the street from the working harbor. We chose a water view room and were very glad we did. It had a large picture window so you could watch all of the boats coming and going - great added entertainment. My husband... More

Our family recently stayed at the Hilton Garden in Portland for 2 nights. There were six adults and our dog and we could not have had a better experience. All the staff from the valets to the front desk clerks were not only helpful but really, really nice!! Many times, at pet friendly hotels, you do not feel truly "welcome".... More

If you are visiting Portland, stay here. It's just that simple. The location cannot be beat, the rooms are new, comfortable and clean and the staff is friendly. What more do you need from a hotel...or yeah, it's reasonably priced. Located right in the center of Old Port this chain-done-right is guaranteed to please.

You have to hand it to this particular hotel brand, they deliver what they promise to serve: reliable, contemporary, clean, efficient accommodations at a good price. I saw many hotels in Portland; not all are in a good location. This one is and is located on the waterfront and within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. (Most important, it's... More

First, let's level set: this is a standard Hilton property. No frills. There's not even an in-room safe (or, there wasn't in my room). But the beds are comfortable, and they get some details like water pressure right. It's just nothing most people would take a picture of. It's hard to give it 5-stars just because it is what it...
