“A great hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

We're the budget hotel type so I don't know why my wife booked us into a Hilton. Maybe we got a good deal on it? In any case, aside from the enforced valet parking (something I never like), the hotel was fantastic. Clean, great service, excellent wi-fi signal, and a great, great location for exploring the old waterfront area.

I rated this hotel excellent based on the value for the $$ we paid. I booked a several months in advance and because of this I received an excellent rate. The hotel is clean, staff friendly, housekeeping good, but the best feature is the location. It is at the end of Old Port within walking distance of most many attractions. We had a room that faced the port. We enjoyed the scenery and people watching from our hotel room. We did not eat or drink at the hotel restaurant or bar so no comments there.

Stayed here for 5 nights. Accomodation and Service were excellent and would fully recommend here. So central, all the Waterfront is on your doorstep with all its shops, restaurants and amenities, and Fort Allen Park Walkway starts opposite to walk off the Haddock and Lobster.....

This hotel had the best location of any hotel I saw in Portland. It was right in the middle of the action and it was right across the street from the water. The room was great and so was the service.

Our room had a great view of the water. The room was large and it had a nice, new and clean feeling. The bed was great and the bathroom was very nice.

The staff was very welcoming and helpful. We ended up getting free breakfast with my Hilton Honors membership level so that was a nice touch.

When reading previous reviews we were a bit nervous but from the valet to the front desk, to the restaurant & maid service, this hotel was top notch. The location couldn't be better. The only downside is that when planning your trip keep in mind that if you come by car you need to figure an extra $15 a day for parking. The price was comparable, or better than parking lots in the area, but when booking it is not mentioned (or at least I didn't see it)

Room Tip: We asked for a water view & were pleased
