We stayed at the Hotel Portsmouth (formerly the Sise Inn) this past weekend for the first time. It is on the edge of the downtown Portsmouth area. They emailed good directions (including landmarks) from I-95 so we had no trouble finding it despite never having been to Portsmouth before. We parked in the hotel's lot behind the building and didn't... More

I had an absolutely wonderful stay here. The hotel is modern New England to a tee- interesting architecture to the rooms, fieplaces, a historic feel to the beautiful common spaces and lobby/check in- but also luxe amenities including iPad in the rooms, filtered and filtered sparkling water, great modern showers, and smart minimalist decor. Cannot say enough good things about... More

Everyone who work there from the moment of checked in to the time we check out was wonderful and helpful. Within walking distance to downtown and the great shops and restaurants. I really did not want to do this because I would love to book it at anytime without waiting LOL, but I am sure everyone will find out how... More

A very pleasant stay in the hotel portsmouth. If you are looking for an original boutique hotel then look no further. Being a smaller family run hotel there are no big amenities and breakfast is limited but it made a nice change to stay somewhere so quaint whilst away on business.

I stayed here a few weeks ago with friends. We booked a king suite and it was perfect. It is easy walking distance to restaurants, shops and a park at the waterfront. The desk staff was knowledgeable and the room was immaculate. Thank you Hotel Portsmouth!

The Hotel Portsmouth is beautiful with rooms that were renovated last year. They kept the historic part of the hotel and updated the rooms with very tasteful decor. The beds were super comfortable. There is even an in-room ipad so you can find local restaurants, etc. Although for tips about Portsmouth, the front desk was incredibly helpful. The location is... More

Elegant, non-pretentious, clean, modern and sophisticated, the Hotel Portsmouth is a wonderful introduction to the charm of New Hampshire's historic seaside town. Location, service and ease made for a wonderful place to stay. In room iPads loaded with local menus was a touch I had not seen elsewhere. Very good parking options, easy to find and spectacular nook and cranny... More

Every aspect of The Hotel Portsmouth is well thought out, from the furniture to bedroom fixtures, to linens. This place is a wonderful establishment. The youthful staff was wonderfully accommodating and professional. We stayed in the King Suite which has a separate small guest bedroom. Ipads in the rooms replace the dated travel flyers. Dyson bladeless fans were also a... More

I was visiting Portsmouth and did some research on local places to stay in or near downtown Portsmouth. This place came as an excellent choice and I was not disappointed. It's a bit on the pricey side, but you absolutely get your moneys worth. The rooms are spacious and have little touches to make them not feel like sterile hotel... More

Spotless and Friendly. Most comfortable bed ever. If you're in Portsmouth this is the place to stay. The decor is quite interesting and the staff is genuinely warm. I love the iPads in the room. It was full of excellent information! Not just a novelty. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
