Well situated, especially the corner suites facing the water. Staff was welcoming, especially Diane and Edith at the front desk, who put a smile on everyone's face, not least mine. Highest recommendation!

Was in Portland for a conference and enjoyed staying at the Westin. Wanted to send a shout out to Diane, the Front Desk Supervisor, who helped us with some complicated billing. She is lovely and kind and an asset to the hotel's management.

Overall this hotel was very nice! I enjoyed the pleasant welcome from the front desk, the ease to find the room, the access to multiple elevators, fitness room and spa. The room was very clean and comfortable upon entering. The beds were magical. The bathroom was spacious enough to not feel cramped. The only dissatisfying part of my trip was...

Dear Frank J, Thank you for your feedback - I'm glad that overall you enjoyed our hotel and our staff. I'm sorry the detractor was our shuttle service. We did recently switch from an "on demand" model to a more structured loop and stop service. This was done to provide our guests a more clearly defined timetable so that they...

We came here for just one night stay. The room was lovely and clean. The bar overlooking the harbour had really good views, not to mention the drinks. The best part was the staff. When we checked in the lady on the desk took her time to get a map out and show us where to go for food and...

Dear Heather W, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. Thank you especially for recognizing our staff. If the Front Desk person who you describe is who I think it is, she has an affinity for Portland's most famous of donuts - The Holy Donut! They truly are amazing and one of many "must-dos" whenever you visit. Our staff...

I hung out here all week while the wife was in a conference. Typical Westin style hotel. We enjoyed our stay. They upgraded us to a king bed. The bathroom was spacious. It was just as the pictures showed. The room card was required to go up in the elevator and I am a fan of that effort. The gym...

The last time my family and I decided to take a vacation in Portland, Maine, we booked a room at this hotel. When we arrived at night, everything was fine until we saw our room. Not only was the location of the hotel room deserted from civilization, the view from the window was completely unsatisfactory, especially when we purposely booked...

The stay was to be expected and everyone was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately they only require room numbers and signatures to charge meals/drinks to rooms at their restaurants, so anyone can charge their meals to random rooms in the hotel. It took me 5 tries to get a fraudulent charge reversed on my credit card. While the people I spoke...
