Spouse had a conference at the Gateway Center; ideal location. The staff was friendly, helpful and kind; they exhibited pride in their workplace. The room was clean, comfortable and well equipped ( coffee, popcorn, toiletry, wifi and kitchen w/ fridge). Near terrific restaurants: Fore Street, Ribbolita and Duck Fat. Adequate work out area. Good coffee, iffy breakfast.

We had two different rooms, next to each other.The rooms faced the delivery area for the hotel kitchen and was a little noisey in the early morning with delivieries. We celebrated my granddaughter's 2nd Birthday. The rooms are... More

Obviously I like the location of this hotel. It is within walking distance of all the shopping you could possibly want, many, many restaurants, and it's right at the water. We had a water view room which happened to be on the corner, so we had 3 large windows in the room which all had great views of the water... More

Had a great room. Arrived late and nice staff. Comfortable bedding. I always find this hotel very expensive, but I do like downtown location. Breakfast good, but always packed. Public areas large and comfortable. No valet is a pain, since the garage is next door. Overall, a nice spot, but on the high end for price.

This is a run of the mill Residence Inn but it's priced like a 4 star hotel. Even for those of who are using Marriott points. At 120,000 Marriott points for 3 nights I think I should have saved my hard earned rewards and gone to the Hampton Inn and paid cash. Portland is an awesome little city with a... More

The reception area is extremely busy - this hotel is situated in an excellent location in downtown Portland; it is within walking distance of the Harbor Front, Old Town and good restaurants. The Front Desk was very accommodating and hospitable. We were only there for one night but would definitely return if in the area. Breakfast is typical Residence Inn.... More

We went back to Portland for our second getaway weekend and second stay at the Residence Inn. Both times our rooms were great. Very spacious, immaculate and ultra clean. Beds were very comfortable. Staff were courteous and helpful. There is also a nice little breakfast every morning. I thought the wireless service was a bit slow on our devices, but... More

We are back in Portland all the time, so I tend to pick whichever hotel in the Old Port happens to be cheapest for each stay. This was our first time at the Residence and it was very good. It's within a couple of blocks of the Old Port and right on the bottom of the hill leading up to... More

We stayed here in October, and had a lovely night's sleep in the very large comfortable bed in our apartment. Staff we friendly and welcoming, and we liked the effort the hotel had gone to with the Halloween decorations - cobwebs decorated the lobby. There was also a very reasonably priced laundrette. The only thing we were a little bit... More
