We recently stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn. It is located within easy walking distance to most everything in Portland. The staff were ALL extremely friendly and helpful and the room was large and clean. We will stay again on our next trip to Portland.

This hotel is wonderfully situated for walking around the old port. Great shops and restaurants. In fact, our favorite dinner spot, Fore Street, overlooks the back parking lot of the hotel. A two minute walk. In the same parking lot is the Standard Baking Company--fabulous breads, pastries and coffees, which we brought back and ate in the lobby with our... More

We did a quick getaway in Portland and chose Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Waterfront for our Friday night stay. We have been here before and were looking forward to a return stay. Valet was very pleasant even though he was working outside in bitterly cold temps. We rushed inside and were promptly greeted at the desk and told we had... More

My wife and I have stayed here several times and keep coming back. It's a very comfortable hotel on Commercial St. right next to the yummy Standard Baking Company. Easy walking to lots of great shops and restaurants. The staff is quite friendly and the rooms are small, but very nice. We've stayed elsewhere in Portland and come back here... More

We really enjoyed our long weekend here not only did they make us feel welcome they also made our little french bulldog Lola feel welcome!I especially liked the valet staff! The couple of guys that we interacted with went above and beyond multiple times.

The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly, located close to most of the nearby attractions in the Old Port District. A decent view of the waterfront from the room. Breakfast was good and enjoyable. Did not have any issues or concerns with the hotel. Will stay there again.

This is my "Go To" hotel in Portland. I would never even consider staying anywhere else. The staff is friendly and competent. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. I enjoy the valet service. And the convenience to all that the Old Port has to offer is without parallel.

You are central to many great restaurants, shops and ferries to the islands. The hotel was clean and comfortable, the staff seemed a bit overwhelmed over the weekend, but were friendly and accommodating. The restaurant was fine for breakfast, but they were rather vague about other meals..which was fine since there were great places within a block or two.

Great hotel to spend the night and explore Portland! Prompt valet service, large clean room with view of water, decent sized bathroom, and helpful staff. The staff helped us to find a restaurant for dinner and even told us what was/wasn't good there! The location of this hotel is ideal for barhopping along Portland's streets. If you don't want to...
