We booked into this hotel for three nights. The reception staff were so pleasant and very helpful. The room was fantastic with views overlooking the harbour. The bedroom was huge. The bed was very comfortable and the linen was good. Everything was clean and tidy. We didn't eat at the restaurant attached, as the walk down town was only 10... More

This is an old style HI but in a good location, if you are doing the tourist/historical/sightseeing Portland. Very easy walk to the Old Port area and right across the street from the Portland Museum of Art, to give you some bearings. The parking garage often fills up and you park somewhere else. Everything was clean and the front desk... More

The good part of the hotel is a great view of the bay. So ask for a bay view room on the top floor. I thought the price was a bit steep at $240 a night (includes taxes and parking fee). The room was ok but nothing special for the price.

Great hotel! Our room overlooked the bay and the view was great especially after dark. The room was comfortable and well maintained. Breakfast was very good and moderately priced. Parking was available on site, at an additional cost, but was convenient and well lit. Somewhat pricey but we would visit again.

I stayed at the hotel for a conference. First off I reserved a king room but all they had left was doubles even though I checked in 2hrs early. Parking was a night mare and I had to park across the street and pay. The rooms are out dated and over priced. The sheets were so old they had a... More

We went here for a bachelor party as it was the cheapest hotel in downtown Portland. That said, it was still over $250 a night which for Portland, ME seems crazy to me but alas, it is what it is. The hotel is located about a 10 minute walk outside of 'downtown' where all the shops and bars are. They... More

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
