From valet parking to check out was a great experience. We live 10 miles outside ofPortland, Maine and are familiar with the area and wanted to stay where we could walk and not need to drive. Location is great. The room was clean and quiet. Complimentary Starbucks coffee on each floor in the morning. Chocolates on our beds each night....

Stayed here on a bachelor party weekend with friends, and the accommodations were spectacular and classy. The location can't be beat for being near the water and the night life with just a very short walk to both. Wont stay anywhere else when i come back up here.

My wife and I decided to spend the night here last Saturday. We drove up from Rhode Island and did some shopping in Freeport. Once back to the hotel it was snowing and roads were bad. The valet parked or car near the door and we left it there until it was time to head home. The valet was wonderful,...

Bring walking shoes because one of the fantastic amenities is the closeness of everything--ferry terminal, restaurants, museums, cinema, bakery, pubs, wine shops. If you don't have time to do your homework, the concierge will help you make reservations and locate businesses. If you arrive early, the valet service will park your car and keep baggage until your room is ready....

Very comfortable bed (on the firm side, as I like them, but not overly so) in a pleasant environment. Sadly the icy conditions forced them to close the courtyard and fire pit, which was very disappointing. All staff were pleasant and courteous, including the often-praised (here) valet attendants. A decent value in the Old Port area during the long Portland...

We stayed at Portland Harbor Hotel for two nights last week. First of all, the building and rooms are excellent. Very clean and a dignified, nice, old hotel look. We used room service twice, and the service was prompt and professional (as was the front desk and valet). However, what stood out to me was the extra step the staff...

After staying at PHH, we will not stay anywhere else in the Portland area. Service was amazing! From the front desk-room service-bar to valet, Exceptionally helpful and attentive. The PHH car service was a huge added bonus, and took us anywhere we needed to go that was out of walking distance. Our room was beautiful! Comfort level- 5 stars! We...

Room was very comfortable, larger than what I usually see in hotels. Bath also spacious. I really liked the walk-in shower--good water pressure and heat. Hotel was very quiet-no street noise or even noise from within the hotel. Location was very convenient to the Old Port area, so everything we wanted to see or go was within walking distance.

This was a return visit. Only stayed overnight but everything was as we remembered it from our previous stay two years ago. The service is friendly and efficient. Love that they have valets who will drive you to restaurants, train station, airport for no charge (tip well thought as they provide such a good service). A traditional hotel, spotlessly clean...
