Family and I have stayed here twice in last two years. lose to everything in downtown. We will come back again for sure. The attached restaurant is very good, very convenient and offers discount to hotel guests. Parking downtown is very tough, so the valet parking is very convenient and is actually worth it. Tip: Get to breakfast early for...

Very clean & updated hotel in a great waterfront location. Staff was friendly but we had to wait until after 4pm to get in our suite so we waited for 2 hours in the lobby. They gave us a cookie for our troubles. We raced to shower & prepare then had 2 couples over for drinks at 5pm! The hotel...

Hampton is a great location with so many restaurants within walking distance. We stayed in two rooms ajoining with kids, cousins and parents ate at Fuji for dinner, East Ender for appetizers, Sebago Brewery and there are great restaurants right behind the Hampton including Eventide and Honey Paw. Great location for a great weekend in the Old Port with family....

We stayed just one night. Chose this hotel for water view and because it doesn't allow pets- Friendly staff. Nice room, comfortable bed. Breakfast was good. Husband was not comfortable with the valet parking set up, but we did it. Car was accessible to get items we had left in it. Parking attendants were friendly and helpful- slight language barrier....

We were staying in Portland to attend a Christmas concert. We have stayed at this Hampton inn before, great location. Walking distance to restaurants, shops and water. We had a nice room overlooking the water. Breakfast is good, staff is friendly what more can you ask for.

What a great experience at the Hampton Inn!! We used the complimentary shuttle to take us to and from the Polar Express in the middle of a snowstorm. The staff makes you feel very comfortable and welcome. The pool was a hit with my son, and the room was very large, clean with a great view of the harbor. We...

We stayed here to take our kids to the Polar Express train on the waterfront. They let us check in early and quickly sent us the rollaway bed we requested. The room was a pretty good size and clean. Even though it was a short walk to the waterfront where the Polar Express train boarded, we opted to take their...
