The hotel is a bit of a walk from the marina area ( about 10-15 min). However the amenities are nice. The hotel has a pool and a café. Kids eat free. We stayed on the 7th floor with the view of Main street

We thought because they had an attendant it was safe to park there for a Civic Center show. But apparently he leaves right after the show starts, and they are the only parking lot around that is too cheap to install security cameras. Our brand new car got keyed and will cost us about $2500 to fix. They just point... More

No parking garage camera or security; locked truck was broken into and hand gun stollen on a Tuesday Night... I can just imagine the incidents on the weekends! Portland P.D. allowed they have numerous reports from that garage; completely ridiculous for a place that charges $200 a night! Makes me wanna start robbing in that area: no cameras and no... More

We are sorry the guest has been misinformed about the circumstances surround the incident referred to. Unfortunately the vehicle in question was left unlocked, with valuables inside. We have 24 hour security in the garage. The police officer was also incorrect, a matter that is being taken up with that department. We are of course always sorry when a segment... More

Very happy to accommodate. Easy to get around from the location. Daisy at the front desk allowed us every flexibility. Housekeeping staff were awesome. Our adult children had the pool to themselves in the evening after dinner.

The hotel is a very nice Holiday Inn property. The staff is professional, welcoming, and very accommodating. There are many restaurants, taverns and shops as well as beautiful views of the harbor. I can't wait to come back and explore the area more. I will stay at this property again.

A 2 night stay and glad we stayed here mainly because of the proximity to the restaurants/bars within walking distance. Clean rooms. Pretty comfortable bed (not great). That is all we needed from our hotel room though.

I spilled out $300/night for a very generic, just on the outskirts of Old Port, hotel. Nothing really to write about here... I tried to save a few bucks & think I will probably dole out a few more $$$ next time to stay directly in the Old Port area.... or just farther out where it's even cheaper... it was... More

We are sorry you were not pleased with your stay. We offer the only expansive views of both the city and bay in Portland, and offer complimentary shuttle to the Old Port, only a five minute walk away, but there is not hassle with parking. It is our hope you will choose us again. More

We stayed here for two nights while we explored Portland. We felt welcomed from the very beginning and check-in was quick and the staff was very accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable and had a nice bay view. It was in walking distance to most everything in the city and the hotel shuttle was always available for what wasn't.... More

Stayed here overnight before catching a flight. It's not too far from the town-centre but there isn't much to see within a 3 block radius. Portland is a fairly small town, which you can see in just a day. It's pretty and there are a good few nice places around to eat, though we didn't try the hotel restaurant. The... More

We are pleased you enjoyed your short visit, and hope that you are able to return for a longer stay. While we are at the top of the Old Port which is only a 5 minute walk, we are also in the heart of the Arts District. So just across the street are two museums, with art galleries and art... More
