We stayed for 3 nights and the location was perfect. There are a ton of things to see and do without needing your car, and some great rides to take if you want to drive up the coast a little farther. The staff were very friends, and the views from our room over the water were fantastic. The size of... More

The Garden Inn downtown is in a good location for exploring the Old Port area of Portland. Our room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Wifi is free in the hotel. The only downside was a rude and unhelpful check in person. We would stay here again though.

My husband and I stayed one night at this hotel. The location is excellent if you want to be able to walk to dinner and around downtown Portland. It was worth paying for the valet parking. The room was nice and spacious and the staff very friendly.

This is a clean and friendly hotel with the perfect location in downtown Portland. It is far enough away from the busier parts of downtown but very close to great restaurants and a most delicious bakery. I have absolutely nothing to complain about here!

The hotel was great, the staff were very friendly, and the location was perfect. For the mornings, a great bakery with good coffee is situated on the other side of the parking lot. The Fore Street Grill sits above the bakery and is one of the best restaurants on the east coast and relatively reasonable. Back to the hotel... the... More

Terrific harbor views and quiet rooms The entire staff from the Valet to the Housekeepers was friendly and attentive making us feel welcomed. All wanted to ensure we had a pleasant stay at their hotel and had great tips for where to go for dinner, drinks, and sightseeing. The room and entire hotel was very clean and comfortable.

Great location, great staff, nearby some of the best dining in Portland. I travel to Portland at least once a month to visit my accounts, and this place has the business travelers' needs all figured out. Fast internet, easy valet parking, quiet rooms, well established workout room, and across the parking lot is one of the best bakeries in all... More

The location of this hotel is probably the best in town, just in front of the Ferry dock, with views to the ocean. Checking in was nice, easy and fast, the room was clean, big enough and with all the needs, also, because I'm HH Gold, I had complimentary water, internet connection and free breakfast, which is good.
