This is one of America's grand hotels, now fully renovated and managed by Marriott. The rooms and baths are exceptionally well appointed, as are the common areas and their restaurants . Very lively restaurant & bar scene. Several restaurants on site. About 15 minute drive from downtown Portsmouth.

My husband and I were in dire need of some R&R so he surprised me with a weekend getaway to this beautiful hotel. We started our weekend with relaxing couple Swedish massages, then a romantic dinner. The next day, I had a seaweed wrap and massage by Scott, which was pure heaven. The room, hotel, grounds, and staff were perfect.... More

We spent 2 nights at the Wentworth and had a wonderful time. We had a nice room with a comfortable king bed and a great bathroom. I love a big, tile shower! Part of the reason we chose the Wentworth was because of the proximity to Portsmouth, NH. We went to a song-writers festival, early show, and then out to... More

I've stayed at this hotel several times, always in the off season, most recently in April 2015. It is a beautiful old hotel that has been renovated and offers nice rooms and amenities. The surrounding area is mostly residential with a mix of seasonal large homes and year round smaller ones. If you have the time drive south on 1B... More

My husband booked us a weekend here for our anniversary in January. We had a wonderful time, the staff truly go above and beyond to ensure you have a wonderful time and fond memories. We spent an entire day in the spa which was gorgeous and indulgent. The outdoor hot tubs were so much fun in the icy winter, and... More

This was our second visit to this hotel and we are looking forward to a third. Our visit was at the end of March and it snowed during our stay which lent to the overall cozy and charming feeling of the hotel. We were upgraded to a spacious corner room with access to the Concierge Lounge that had a delightful... More

We stayed several nights and split the stay between the marina suites and the main hotel. We loved the space in the marina, the view from the balcony and fireplace. The marina suite also had a kitchen but we did not use it as we only stayed one night in the marina suite. We moved over to the turret suite.... More

Great weekend getaway location. Nearby town of Portsmouth is adorable with cute shops and a surprising variety of fantastic restaurants. But don't be in too much of a hurry to eat outside of the hotel because Salt, the onsite restaurant at the Marriott, is very good! The hotel is an older property that will hopefully be in line for a... More

I have been watching this property since at least 1985, when it was a freshly abandoned huge old hotel sitting behind fences along Route 1B along the shore outside of Portsmouth. Since its long hoped for recovery and renovation around 2003, we have frequently stopped in for drinks and appetizers at the always cozy and classy bar. This last weekend... More
