Clean, friendly and full of smiles (except for the one guy at the front desk when we checked in, I don't think he was having a very good week, but I guess we have all been there at some point) Great view of the harbor and cruise terminal. Just a short walk from the Summer Feet bicycle tour pick up... More

We traveled to Portland for a wedding with our 3 children - getting 2 hotel rooms was too cost prohibitive and I didn't want to use AirBNB. This was PERFECT! We had a one bedroom with comfortable beds, it was super clean - breakfast was great, we had a water view, reduced parking, and a pool. Great location, great property!

All good. Designed thoughtfully for guests' comfort. Welcoming and helpful staff, clean everything, details attended to, responsive everyone without being obtrusive, quiet clean comfortable rooms. Loved the location as it's one block from everything important, in all directions.

Great location, amazing customer service, clean, quite and everything you'd expect from a Residence Inn. I will be staying here again! Complimentary breakfast was great. Shuttle service for dinner was an awesome bonus.

We just spent a couple of days staying at the Marriott Residence Inn on the Portland waterfront. We visit Portland often and typically stay at one of the B&Bs in the West End but this time we waited too late to book and they were all sold out. This hotel is fine if you like soulless modern lodging with a... More

I've been staying at the Residence Inn on and off since July of this year. The front desk employees are so sweet and easy to talk to. The bartender is great - knows a lot about Portland and remembers you! The shuttle service is a great extra. My rooms have always been clean and ready when I arrive. Plenty of... More

This is a beautiful Residence Inn. Very large! The views from the waterfront rooms are good. The views from the back rooms aren't so hot. Very clean. Parking is in a garage next door at $15 per night which is reasonable for Portland. This hotel is walking distance to everything in Portland. They also have a free shuttle if needed.... More

Our room was very welcoming and the decor was very nice. We couldn't seem to find an ice machine on our floor, which would have been convenient the night we arrived rather than having to fill up the ice tray in the fridge. The bathtub was a little slippery...it looked like there were non-slip decals/features, but they seemed faded.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am happy to read that you have enjoyed our newly renovated guest suites. At Residence Inn, it is not typical to find ice machines as each room is equipped with an ice maker. On your next travel, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our guest service... More

The Residence Inn in Portland is near the water but a bit "off side" from the fun shopping and restaurant areas. The breakfast is excellent and the staff friendly. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The parking garage is next door and costs only $15. for a day.

We stayed at the Residence Inn from 9/7/16 to 9/10/16. This is a great place and in a very convenient location. The staff is very friendly and if you want any information or need help, see Branden at the front desk. I would definitely stay here again!! Thanks Residence Inn for a great few days!
