The service was excellent at the front desk at check-in and throughout the rest of the stay. Super friendly and professional without being stuffy. The rooms are well equipped (Netflix available in rooms now!)and clean. The beds were comfortable and well made. The hotel was very busy, but we didn't hear a thing. Breakfast was really great and enjoyed the... More

All I could say is wow, what a spacious one bed room we stayed in. The whole facility was beautiful, which includes a fitness center and a swimming pool. We loved everything about this hotel from the staff, the ambiance to the location. We would definitely return in the future.

Just here for a couple days. I like the down town location, the parking is right next door. There are lots of places to eat nearby. The hotel has a small pool and a hot tub. Both were tested and enjoyed. They have an exercise room. That I did not test but someone else was using it while we enjoyed... More

Says it all really. Loved the room. Couldn't quite believe the breakfast. But then after visiting Niagara Falls and Ogdensburg started to realise this is the new way. Customers are not only not right they just don't matter. Long as we can book the place out. Who cares

If we weren't using Marriott Points, we wouldn't have stayed as the going room rate was $350+ whereas I am used to $150 - $200 for a Residence Inn. Not sure why it commands that high price, but it was a nice RI but nothing spectacular. Located directly across from the cruise ship dock and just down from the narrow... More

This is a well presented modern hotel featuring kitchen facilities. Rooms are to a high standard, well kept and comfortable. Good breakfast with variety of choices. Friendly staff. The only reservations I have is that the first floor rooms are facing back (into a slope) so are actually slightly below ground with a light well. Higher floors would be much... More

While my husband was on business, I accompanied him to Portland. This was a great place for us to stay: close enough that he could walk to work, and close enough to plenty of shops and restaurants to walk to those as well. I enjoyed walking the Promenade every day, just a block away. The hotel room was clean and... More

Excellent hotel within walking distance of hotels and shops and the Portland waterfront. Excellent front desk staff. Excellent included breakfast with many inclusions. Our room was very nice and huge with a frig, microwave and a real treat. They did everything right and has a discount for the parking around the corner. Highly recommended.

My wife and I usually stay at one of the several outstanding B&Bs in Portland when we pass through. However, we booked late this year and our favorite places were all sold out; we ended up in the Residence Inn. The hotel is well-located (~5 minute walk from the center of the Old Port) and has discounted parking in the... More
