This was our second stay at this Hampton. The location puts travelers in walking distance to all "old town" attractions and dozens of great restaurants. Parking is $15 day, but the hotel let us stay beyond the 24-hour period because our "Casco Bay" tour out us over the timeframe for a day's parking. That said, the breakfast was excellent, friendly...

We chose the Hampton Inn Portland Downtown because it was literally a 4 minute walk to the waterfront area where we were seeing a concert. My daughter and I felt perfectly safe walking and driving around, even walking to the hotel after the concert on the pier at 10 pm. The hotel is near shopping and restaurants. There is a... More

We enjoyed this quiet hotel which is located very close to all the activity of Portland and the waterfront. having a restaurant accessible from the lobby was nice too for a late night meal and drink.Rooms were immaculate, quiet and restful decor. The staff was great and friendly. Would prefer to have not had to pay for the valet parking... More

Room smelt of fish when we arrived. Only alternative room was overlooked by the road. The housekeeping staff seemed to struggle with full capacity. Breakfast was overcrowded and items not refreshed often enough Way too expensive.

Great location close to restaurants & shops. Upgraded room upon arrival. Valet parking was convenient & on site in adjacent lot. Rooms, pool & common spaces were clean. Only negative is that noise from adjacent rooms was distracting. Breakfast buffet was a little chaotic, but had a great assortment of hot & cold items. I would definitely recommend this hotel...

Stayed in room 533 for 1 night in August. The hotel looks new outside. It's near the pier and downtown. However, the common area carpets look like they have never been vacuumed. The shower curtain has black mold at the bottom. The grout around the tub has mold as well. You can see the dust in the vent in the... More

Good afternoon, I am very sorry to hear that you were disappointed in the cleanliness level of the hotel. I simply have no excuse other than we need to do better. The high volume of local traffic sometimes contributes to the lobby cleanliness levels. We have hired a public space attendant to only clean public spaces in an attempt to... More

We were in town for just one night to attend a concert, the Hampton had the perfect location close to the Maine State Pier. The room was extremely spacious, clean, and comfortable. The hotel was gracious enough to let us stay parked in their lot even after checkout so we could enjoy the day in the Old Port.

We spent four nights here this past week. The location is great: a short walk to the waterfront. It is very clean and well maintained. Everyone was very pleasant and the valet parking was very quick.
