Went to Portland on business and fell in Love with the city. Being from Nova Scotia and living the last 20 years in Halifax I always describe Halifax as a city with a small town feel. I think this is why Portland speaks to me. As to The Westin Portland Harborview I understand that it has undergone major renovations and... More

I've stayed at the Westin Portland Harbourview (the Eastland) several times, and it is always a great experience. The staff are always helpful, friendly, and go out of their way to make you feel welcomed. The food is very good, and the drinks at the Top of the East are excellent!

the aspect was a little disappointing, Whilst yes we did have a harborview from our 12 floor room it was distant, from the photos we expected something closer. Rooms are guaranteed available for, 3.00 our two rooms were ready for 3.30 and 4.15. The promised extras weren't there and had to be chased. Not the Starwood experience we are used... More

The hotel was very modern and chic, very busy, but the staff was really nice and helpful. The room was big, clean and comfortable. The bed was really, really nice and the bathroom had an awesome shower and amenities. I liked that it was close to the city center and all the attractions, they even had complimentary shuttle service available... More

As a Gold starwood member, I requested an update, the only problem was that I was given a handicapped room, which I am not fond of, as they usually have a "cold" feel to me. The room did have a fridge which was a nice touch. The restaurant downstairs had happy hour specials on food, which made it somewhat more... More

Our ninth floor room had a very comfortable bed, the furnishings also were very nice. A coffee maker with Starbucks supplies was a nice perk but never refilled. Bathroom was quite nice, too, with a rainhead shower, something I don't like but there was a handheld unit. Odd things were not in the room but available like a luggage rack,... More

Older but classic property with Heavenly Beds and a fine staff. The hotel mgr., Frank McGuire went out of his way to be helpful and gracious. Nice top floor facility for drinks and ambiance and typical Weston friendliness. Great place to spend a few days visiting this interesting city.

My wife & I had a great dinner in the restuarant in this hotel. The restaurant manager was a sweet heart. Our table was in small room & was perfect. Our waiter was a young college student & was trying his best to please us. Our dinners were excellent. I had the Halibut steak & it was fabulous. Later we... More

Stayed at the Westin one night in Oct. The room was wonderful, bed comfortable but most of all everything was very clean. Stopped in the bar downstairs for a drink and hit happy hour. The food was delicious and got to try some foods we've not had before at great prices. Everyone who worked there was friendly and very helpful.... More

Thank you for your kind words. We are so happy that your stay was great. You are absolutely correct about the rate discrepancy you ran across. That should never be the case and was the result of an error on our part, not our policy. We appreciate you bring it to our attention. More
