This was my second time staying at the Residence Inn Downtown Portsmouth while visiting the area for business. From the moment we arrived (at valet parking) to the moment we checked out the staff was so wonderful. They were willing to help with whatever was needed.
The rooms were very spacious and clean for the most part. I happened to look underneath the sheets at one point and it looked like the underside of the mattress was stained for whatever reason, but that was the only thing I found wrong with the room. Everything else was great. In the little basket that has the coffee and sugar packets, there was also a bag of popcorn provided which I thought was a nice touch. Perfect for when my meetings got out late and I just needed a little snack.
Breakfast was really nice too. There were some hot items and cold items. They had these chocolate and white muffins that I thought were amazing.
It is really located in the perfect location if you are there to visit the local shops, eateries or sights of the water. I'm lucky that the building I was working from was right on the water and had a beautiful view. It's a beautiful area for walking around and visiting.
The only thing that others might find kind of annoying or an inconvenience is that there is only valet parking since there is no hotel parking lot/garage. There used to be a lot across the street that was .75 cents an hour, however they have now dug it up to build another hotel. There is a parking garage around the corner that is .75 an hour and that is where we parked since the office we were going to was just a five minute walk.
But other than parking everything else was great.
