We stayed at the Percy Inn on an extended weekend visit to Portland -- Friday - Sunday. When we arrived we found, as did all others, no one to greet us but an envelope with our name on it lettling us know the rooms was ready and waiting for us. There was a sign on the dutch door directing us to call the Inn keeper as he ws away from the Inn to let him know we were there. I did speak to Dale and he welcomed us to the Inn and also told me that the Portland Museum of Art offiers free admission on Friday evenings. He then confirmed that the room was ready and the key was in the room and to go right on up.
Up we did go. To the 3rd floor to the Walt Whitman room. After getting over the shock of the stairs we walked into a very quaint room. Nicely furnished with a queen size bed, comfortable chair, a desk and dresser. There is also a sink and small refirgerator in the room that was stocked with soft drinks for our use. Right next to our room was a small pantry room that had tea, hot chocolate coffee (instant) and a spigot on the sink that had instant hot water. There was also an ice maker as well. The bathrom was more than sufficient. Nice size pedestal sink, full size tub and well working shower.
The breakfast was just as advertised and was all we needed. Continental breakfast consisting of berry pie of sort, fruit, hard boiled eggs (kept warm), assorted toast, muffins, bagels.
Other than the "Phanotm Innkeeper" the staff at the Inn were bvery pleasant and helpful and our stay was very enjoyable.
Porland is most definitely a walking city. Even though the Inn is located on the west side of the city, we never used our car the entire weekend. We walked every place we had to go.
