We stayed six nights, July 10 through 15. Upon check-in we were offered an upgrade to a harbor view room. We were tickled with that, as we have never been offered an upgrade before! Six days later, we were much less tickled to find out our charges were also seriously upgraded! Perhaps when offering an upgrade, one should also mention...

My wife and I stayed at the Residence Inn July 13 - 15, 2014 while vacationing in Portland. This is the second time in a year that we have stayed at this hotel. We were using our Marriott Rewards, so our 2 night stay cost us nothing. We love this hotel, because of its location. You are within easy walking...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Gil the manager and his staff were helpful and pleasant! Rooms were very clean and the location of the hotel was perfect. The shuttle was a plus when the weather didn't corporate. I can't say enough about how pleasant our experience was at this hotel. The manager has a great attitude and it carries through to...

During a recent trip to Portland, Maine we staying at the Residence Inn Marriot for two nights (Saturday and Sunday). The hotel is a little farther down from the center of the Old Port District which makes it quieter but not a speedy walk one to two block walk to the Starbucks and other restaurants/ cafes.

Great clean modern room. Awesome bed. Wonderful staff. Free food most nights downstairs. No complaints here. One suggestion though...to get to or from the pool and gym you have to walk all the way through the lobby and main setting area (unless I missed something...) and to me that is a negative. There is a shuttle van which is very...

Stayed here before and really wanted to try somewhere else but the race in town brought in a lot of people. They have a great breakfast and and OK happy hour. Rooms are nice and clean. But being woke up at 3 am to a hotel-wide fire alarm and sitting outside on the street was no fun. The disturbing thing...

This is a very nice, quiet, and dog friendly hotel near many good restaurants in Portland, ME. The suites are well stocked with everything you need to cook in your room (stove, microwave, dishes, etc.), but the hotel is well located with several very good restaurants within walking distance. The staff was very helpful. The hotel has a 10 pm...

We have stayed in this location before, but it has been a while so I wanted to let everyone know it is still a great stay for the price!! We stayed on the eighth floor in a king alcove suite, the room was clean and spacious. My only complaint about the room was it had a funny smell. The hotel...

Three of us, recently, stayed at this hotel which has a great location, near the harbor (we took the ferry over to Peaks Island). The suites are spacious with a fully-equipted kitchen that came in handy for storing and warming up leftovers from the many great restaurants that were not too far. (We tried the Portland Lobster, Street & Co.,...

The location is on Fore Street which is one of the hot addresses in Portland, but it is one block east of the main drag. A fenced, empty, lot and some graffiti on a nearby building initially put me off. Our room was ready to check in when we arrived and there were plenty of luggage carts to get luggage...
