This hotel is first class! Located right on waterfront and the rooms are luxurious. Staff was very friendly. Beds were very comfortable. Rooms were extremely clean.

This was our first stay in a Hilton Garden Inn and it was pretty good. We got a basic room and our rate went down about $10 from what we prepaid. We called and the girl who answered at the front desk phone before we arrived gave us a corner suite facing the harbor and free breakfast! Pretty good deal!... More

We love seaport towns and are lucky because Boston, Newport, Portsmouth NH and Portland Maine are all within easy drivng range for us. We just got back from a two day stay in Portland Maine at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Waterfront so while things are still fresh in my mind this would be a good time to give a... More

In a beautiful location in Downtown across from the Harbor. This Hotel is not your standard Hilton Garden inn. I was upgraded to a Suite and had Views of the Harbor from all rooms. So far all of my stays in Portland have been great. I just wish the weather was as good as the hotels. Maybe the hotels compensate... More

There are better value hotels in Portland Maine, and probably just as convenient. Breakfast was not included and outrageously over priced (get real Hlton!) But for lacation you get to be a street crossing away from the water front. And don't go up the hll to eat in the pricey restaurants sugggested by the hotel reception, go just across the... More

I contacted over 10 hotels/inns/B&Bs in Portland - from big chain hotels, to small upscale hotels, to Inns and B&Bs - to find out room rates for our first visit to Portland (for a vacation) with my husband and 10-year old. The customer service agent (Jen) was friendly, cheerful, eager to help, and informative without being pushy. She actually listened... More

What makes a good hotel? Hotel rooms are fairly similar. The restaurants and bars are similar. What makes a hotel good is the people working there and the way they treat their guests. The moment we drove up and met the valet, Gavin, we felt like a wet blanket had been thrown on us. He was rude beyond belief. He... More

We came to Portland to catch a Sea Dogs game. We arrived around 2:30 to a surprisingly chilly Portland. Check-in was quick but I didn't like the idea of valet parking. We drove around to the valet and I felt immediately rushed, we had a lot to unload and organize. The valet was very helpful and patient. The room was... More

I would definitely stay here again when in Portland. The location is perfect. The valet and front desk are super friendly. The room was very clean with a small fridge and microwave.
