Great views of the harbor. Beautiful lobby area. Nice modern hotel near dozens of awesome restaurants and pubs. Everyone in our group that stayed at this hotel were all very happy with this choice. I would highly recommend it.

I stayed here 2 nights last week while in Portland for a trade show, and chose this HGI based on previous TA reviews. I'm an HHonors customer so that was a bonus! I love the location, right on the waterfront at Commercial and Franklin - close to many great restaurants, bars and shops. The staff was very friendly and professional,... More

I have been staying at the Hilton Garden Inn in Portland twice a week since September and I absolutely love this place! First of all, the staff is AWESOME. They are always so friendly and helpful. Haley, Beau, and DeShawn are all the perfect representation of how concierge should act! The rooms are beautiful and very spacious and the harbor... More

We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn as part of an office group getaway. The plan was to spend the night, go out to dinner and, if anyone felt like it, do a bit of pub crawling. The hotel was clean and comfortable: spacious room with ocean view, comfortable bed, clean bathroom, simple lounge where we gathered for a drink... More

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel with our dog twice during March and April, and each time were happy with the experience. The rooms were immaculate and attractive but not overly fancy. We had a water-view room last visit that was spectacular. Internet was slow but adequate. In-room Keurig coffee was palatable. Front desk staff were ebulliently... More

The Hilton Garden Inn is a prefect place for a stay in Portland. You are near restaurants, the Standard Baking Co. is just out your door. Get some treats and enjoy a breakfast in your room at your leisure. Get some t take back to where ever home is as well. We loved sitting in the lobby in front of... More

It was a night away from home. We had a nice evening for the most part. Anything that went wrong was on our part. We apologize. Your hotel is wonderful. Location was great. Plenty of space in the room. The service was awesome from the valet to the housekeeping! I would stay at any Hilton anywhere, anytime! Keep up the... More

Very happy with our stay here...clean, new, friendly and in a great location. In the thick of all the fun in the Old Port, but in a quiet location. Staff was super friendly and willing to help. The only thing I would do next time is bring my own blow dryer, as the one in the room is not very... More

This was a great choice as it's right on the waterfront and an easy walk to all of downtown and the waterfront. The staff was really helpful including tips on favorite restaurants for locals. The breakfast was made to order and delicious. My only complaint would be the truck that pulled into the lot next door at 5:00 am and... More

We had a really enjoyable one night stay here. The rooms are clean, modern and beautiful. The location cannot be beat, the Garden Inn Waterfront places you right in the middle of Portland's thriving restaurant and bar scene. The best part about this hotel is the staff, the employees here are extremely helpful and kind. True excellence in hospitality can... More
