“Great location, not for party nights”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

The hotel was fantastic, with a great breakfast buffet
But on New Years eve, we were ready to crash by 1. However, the event in the neighboring building was not. The walls were thin enough we were still hearing Gagnum style at quarter to 2. If you get a room at the end of the hall, make sure you've had enough drinks to put you down, or stay on a quieter night. Service was top notch, and proximity to the square was excellent

We usually stay at the Hilton residence inn but after a horrible stay at a Hampton inn I decided to try Marriott. This hotel was wonderful. Beautifully decorated, modern clean spacious suites (we stayed in a one bedroom) and the staff could not be more friendly or helpful. It was a Christmas stay and I can't think of a better place to spend the holidays. Thank you for making our trip so wonderful!

I stayed one night at the Residence Inn Portsmouth Downtown/Waterfront and wish I stayed longer! I was aware that this was a new property but didn’t imagine it would be so stylish and comfortable. The room was large and immaculate. The studio space was attractive and didn’t feel like a dorm room, which has been the case at other Residence Inns. The bed was very comfortable. Service was lovely at the bar and main desk. Parking is easy and the location is amazing. I love Portsmouth and this hotel couldn’t be situated in a better spot; No need to drive anywhere. If you’re reserving it may appear that the price per night is a little steep for a Residence Inn but when you see the rooms you’ll understand why. I’ll definitely stay here again.

The receptionists at this hotel are extraordinarily pleasant. They really go out of their way to present a pleasant and cheerful experience, which is immediately noticeable. The last time I felt such a warm welcome was at a Disney Resort in Orlando. The rooms seem new-ish and are very clean and quite large. The free breakfast is somewhat ordinary but it is nicely set out, clean, and very adequate. Parking across the street is in an open lot, which does not seem to be monitored closely, but from what I have been told it is very safe. I parked an SUV with my son's school belongings in the lot and felt that it was safe. All in all, this is a very nicely run hotel with are really pleasant staff that go out of their way to make your stay comfortable.

Room Tip: Stayed in several of the rooms over the past months and they have all been great.

My husband and I are fans of the Residence Inn Brand and have stayed in several of them across the country. That being said we also realize that within this brand there can be a huge range of quality differences. A perfect example of this is seen in the 2 Residence Inns that are located In Portsmouth, New Hampshire. This location Downtown on the waterfront is outstanding in every way. The rooms are beautiful with new design and every comfort. Several nights a week you receive free food in the lobby at dinner time. The night we were there last week it was taco night. They had a good variety of toppings for the tacos as well as soft shells and hard shells for the meat filling. Breakfast was amazing and had plenty of choices for those who are health conscious such as egg whites, turkey bacon, hard boiled eggs, whole wheat breads, fresh fruit, oatmeal etc. The hotel is clean and very well run by a staff that seems to anticipate your every need. The woman who checked us in went out of her way to print menu pages from local take out places along with recommendations for restaurants within walking distance. We stayed at the other Residence Inn which is only 1 mile away and found it in need of an update. The Waterfront location is totally worth a bit more per night for double the service, comfort and location.

New and clean. I travel to Portsmouth several times a year for business. This hotel is in a great location to walk to everything in downtown Portsmouth, yet in a quiet area. Kitchens are large here even in the studios. Large, easy to park lot right across the street- relatively inexpensive parking for downtown. Parking is typically very expensive and impossible to find in Portsmouth. I am convinced the meter people are lurking behind a bush just waiting to ticket you, so be careful. Walk- it's much easier. Didn't care for the color scheme in this Residence Inn - they are all different. Too much grey and screaming accents of lime green so the room didn't feel warm and inviting. I am just sensitive to color so it's strictly a personal issue.
