Stayed here for a work related conference and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff was on top of everything. The hotel lounge was good enough to stay and enjoy a few drinks. Plenty of bars and restaurants walking distance from the hotel. There is a parking fee per night so don't be surprise. I will be back!

Stayed in late October and were not over impressed. Stayed in number of Holiday Inns as we were on vacation to the New England area. For such a large hotel we found odd having to pay extra to park the car. Also the breakfast voucher, included in the price of the room, did not cover a normal breakfast, eg: juice,... More

I've stayed at this hotel before, and always found it excellent: friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, and a very good kitchen (which you might not expect, since guests are more likely to eat out at Portland's many wonderful restaurants). My only problem on this visit was the bathroom door. It refused to stay open; when left to its own... More

Stayed here mid October. Plenty of on site parking , at a discounted rate for guests. Staff were friendly and helpful on arrival. The room was a really good size, as was the en-suite, and was very clean. It is ideally located within a 5 minute walking distance to the shops, restaurants and the waterfront. The bar area was very... More

Fantastic hotel in an excellent location, with ample on-site self-parking, at a very reasonable price. Very good value compared to other more trendy and more expensive hotels in this historic part of Portland. Clean and spacious rooms with microwave and mini-refrigerator. Great views, if you get a room on the harbor side. Convenient and within walking distance to everything in... More

This may be not only one of the nicest Holiday Inns in the country but also one of the nicest places to stay in Portland. Three assets stand out: 1. Location -- it's within easy walking distance of the waterfront and Old Port, and across the street from the Portland Museum of Art (which has a very nice collection of... More

This is a better than average Holiday Inn property. Pair that with the great location within the city of Portland and it is the perfect place to stay. Front desk staff is kind and accommodating. Service in the bar area was prompt. Room was clean and well appointed. Only negative is the pillows. I will say, I think Holiday Inn... More

This hotel has a wonderful location, we walked right across the street to watch the Portland Pirates play the Providence Bruins, very convenient to the Old Port. They were sold out the first night and we were here on points, so we only had two double beds, it was a bit small. However, this staff stood on their heads to... More
