“Visit to Portland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We were very pleased with the accommodations and the location of the hotel. Breakfast buffet was a nice touch. Only issue for us was having a cold shower. After calling the front desk the issue was corrected within 15 mins. The technician mentioned the issue was due to heavy consumption. Not sure that sits well with us as I wonder what will happen when the hotel is at capacity. We really want to go back there but are a bit cautious due to the hot water issue. By the way, we travel there frequently as our son, daughter in law and grandbaby live in S. Portland.

Marriott's Residence Inn in downtown Portland is within walking distance of so much of what Portland's waterfront area has to offer. The hotel and staff exceeded our expectations at every turn. Lack of on-site parking was a bit of an inconvenience (the covered garage is just across the street from the hotel and does result in an additional fee) but not a deal breaker for us. We plan on returning in the very near future.

This hotel is in the perfect location-a short walk to everything but far enough away from all the hustle and bustle. The waterfront view is spectacular and worth the upgrade-try to get room #513. There's no room service but a buffet breakfast every morning and a bar to relax in. Parking is in the parking deck across the street. We parked the car when we arrived and didn't need it again until we left. It's about 15 minutes to the airport and easy to find.

Room Tip: Ask for waterfront room--try to get room 513. It has a great view!

Overall this was a really nice location. Rooms were clean, lobby well maintained, and the staff was very helpful. It is the furthest from downtown of all of the downtown hotels. It is in the backyard of the Shipyard brewery, so if you enjoy the aromas then this is the place for you.

Be aware that you need to order a scenic view to get one... The suites do not have any water views!!! They are nice rooms, but you end up looking at the garage or inner courtyard.

Room Tip: Only studio rooms have scenic views (scenic meaning not of the garage, brewery or courtyard)

Whenever I need to spend an evening for an early morning training or a meeting, this is the only hotel I consider staying at in the Portland area. It is a true pleasure; clean, quiet and very convenient. The pricing is on the higher side of Residence Inn's range, but it is worth it.

Stayed at this very well-kept, clean hotel. Breakfast was very good--good selection of hot and cold foods. Room was exceptionally clean, loved the furniture. It was great to have a kitchen and fridge. The bed was very comfortable. The staff is friendly and anxious to please.

Had a great stay at the Residence Inn for a girl's weekend Feb 15 & 16. Hotel is very clean and well kept and this shows in every area from the lobby to the rooms and the breakfast area. Front desk staff so nice as well as the breakfast staff always ready to help with whatever you need!

The hotel is about a half mile walk to where all of the shops, restaurants and bars are, but it was no problem for us! We arrived a little late on Friday night so we walked to the Sebago Brewing Company for dinner and that is just a 2 minute walk and is located at the Hampton Inn. The food and drinks were excellent, and the staff was so friendly!

I would definitely stay at the Residence Inn again!
