My wife and I stayed here for the last three nights of our Maine vacation. A great choice. The hotel looks very new, a little on the modern side. It is right on the edge of downtown, and we basically could walk to anything we wanted to do downtown. Parking is included and is valet. The rooms were lovely; clean,... More

I have stayed if this hotel in 2012 and my review back then was “5 stars”, and, I still like the location, cleanliness of the rooms/hotel, and, the friendliness the valet/courtesy van personnel. As for the remainder of the staff, they were no longer friendly nor helpful - - what happened in the last two years? Bad communications between “Central... More

We had a pleasant stay at this Hampton Inn in Portland. It is an easy walk to shops, restaurants and the Old Port. The check in and check out was easy and the staff most helpful. Breakfast was good and the 24 hour coffee counter was a nice touch. We took advantage of their shuttle to and from the airport.... More

We stayed a total of four nights and were so happy we chose the Hampton Inn as our home away from home while in Portland. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and gave us some of their favorite places to walk around and take in the Portland sights when we first arrived. This hotel is extremely accessible to walking... More

Room was nice, very quiet. We asked for a room with a view; guess they misunderstood what kind of a view we wanted. We were on the backside looking at other buildings. Room was nice, clean and appointed with the usual items. Parking is in a parking deck next door. We walked to the wharves- just a few minute walk.... More

Book this hotel. It has a great location! Walking distance to shops, restaurants and ferry to Casco Islands ( which is a must do!). Great staff and clean! Do it!! Go to Portland Lobster Co for a casual evening on the dock with lobster and live music!

This hotel is central to the Old Port shops and restaurants, the staff is very friendly, and the rooms are large, clean and luxurious! Free breakfast with lots of healthy choices. Valet parking, so you can park your car, which is difficult in Portland in peak times!

Great centrally located and good value. Excellent parking with valet service. Umbrella for the rain. Desk helpful. Room very quiet. Heated indoor pool that isn't used much and thus relaxing. Wifi worked very well on the property. Breakfast was simple and do it yourself but the waffles were fantastic even when i didn't know what I was doing. Can't go... More

Loved this hotel. Located in the heart of Portland on Commercial. Surrounded by great restaurants, great shopping, and right across the street is the Casco Bay Ferry Terminal. Room was large, big bathroom, all the perks of a great hotel. Would definitely stay again.

Portland is expensive for central accommodation, so that's to be expected but I would like to see better than paper plates and plastic cutlery at the breakfast table, and they show little mercy when shutting up shop. The rooms at the rear of the property overlook the garbage collection area and are quite noisy from the air-con units. Having said... More

Good morning, Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your stay. I am so sorry that you felt the offerings at breakfast were subpar. We are under a Hilton standard to use paper products but will certainly notate your feelings here if they should choose to change that. I appreciate all the feedback here and will... More
