We went to Portsmouth for our anniversary weekend. I listed this in our reservation and we were surprised with a complimentary upgrade to the king suite. The decor is so pretty and the bed was very comfy. They provide you with a iPad in the room with links to recommended restaurants and sites to visit. Continental breakfast is light but... More

Portsmouth is our favorite New Hampshire town besides our home town of Holderness on Squam Lake. We discovered this hotel while walking around town. Very good location, lots of parking and that's hard to find in Portsmouth, breakfast is included, outdoor seating area, indoor seating area, large rooms, friendly staff, quiet neighborhood, and the hotel has a lot of character...

My husband and I were in Portsmouth for nearly a week for his work in mid-September. After having a bad experience at another hotel in area, we reached out to the Hotel Portsmouth and from the initial arrangements over the phone (finding us just the perfect room of those available) through our entire time there we were delighted with the...

We celebrated our anniversary in Portsmouth, like we usually do, though always at a chain hotel. We were "brave" this year and reserved The Hotel Portsmouth months ago, because Columbus Day weekend is usually quite busy! I was a little nervous that I wouldn't quite like this new place, that it'd be too different from what I'm used of. And... More

Stayed here for a few nights on a trip to visit family in Maine. My husband and I love Portsmouth and wanted to spend some time without the kids shopping and eating. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly offering great info for places to see and try. The hotel was clean and quiet and quite simply beautiful.

The Hotel Portsmouth is such a lovely place that I sent a "thank you note" after we'd stayed last August/September. Not only are the amenities top notch, but the guests are treated with special care. Everyone on staff is helpful and attentive, much more so than anywhere else we've stayed. I felt comfortable going about, almost as if I had... More

I really enjoyed my one night stay at the Hotel Portsmouth. My only regret is that I couldn't stay longer. Firstly it was so nice to be greeted with ample parking right in downtown Portsmouth. A short stroll and I was enjoying all the fine shops and restaurants. The very pleasant woman working at the desk suggested I look around... More

We stayed in room 308 and it was awesome. From the convenient parking, to the friendly check in, to the provided pre-loaded ipad mini with local information, all the details were covered. The large claw footed bath tub was very nice, as was the large shower with great water pressure. The third floor was a little hot considering October, but... More

Columbus Day Weekend. Peak Foliage. Our 28th Wedding Anniversary. We aren't great planners so when our anniversary came round this year, we realized that neither of us had made arrangements for a get away. Now, try to plan a last minute getaway in NE on Columus Day weekend during peak foliage season. Reservationists laugh at you. Literally, they laugh. I'd... More

The Hotel Portsmouth is a nearly perfect place to stay for a quiet few days in downtown Portsmouth. Everything in the historic area and downtown is within easy walking distance so leave the car in the free parking and enjoy the scenic walk to just about anything you would want to see. The rooms are large, quiet and very clean.... More
