Response from Paul S, Guest Relations Manager at Fireside Inn & Suites Portland
Responded Oct 23, 2018
Sorry we were unable to take you to other locations to eat. We are only approved for ports of travel, i.e. Airport, bus station, Train station, and Cruise terminal. Across the street is a shopping center with a cross walk. There is a Dunkin' Donuts, Ruby Tuesday’s, Pizza Hut, Chipotle, and Panera. I have asked maintance to look into your room temp. They have reported to me with print out Verdun Room temperature monitor shows the room was maintained an average of 72 degrees for your stay.
