We had a lovely stay here. The decor is very traditional, sort of old country inn. The staff was very accommodating and the location was excellent. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable, although our room overlooked some kind of ventilation shaft, which we could hear in our room, there was no audible noise from other guests. The average age... More

We stayed here only one night on our way South and wished it had been longer. Virtually everything we experienced exceeded expectations, but the service level is what separates this hotel from so many others in the luxury category. From stepping out of our car in the valet parking area to stepping back into it to continue on our way,... More

Recently finished a two-day stay here, and it was a very good place to stay for the old harbor area of Portland, ME. The hotel has a garage under the building for 18 per day, a good deal given the parking in that part of town. The hotel staff who greet you in the garage are professional and they hustle... More
