The room's need to be updated. Our couch looked like is came from someone's basement. There isn't a restaurant on site. The restaurant is looked in the Marriott which is a 5 minute walk. They did offer a free shuttle into town.

We were a little worried about staying here after reading some of the past reviews. When we got there, our room wasn't ready so they put us in another one. The room was a suite but didn't have a sink in the kitchen area, it had very small draws in the closet, there were stains on the sheets, the light... More

This hotel had a nice location, lobby, and average rooms. The beds weren't the most comfortable, and the room didn't get as cool as we like. That said, it had a nice breakfast and the staff were personable. We loved the location as it was to the mall!

With the prices of hotels in Portland area overall, this was a reasonable find with basic quality and no parking fee (near Maine Mall). Less than 5 mins drive from Old Port. King bed room was a suite but small and room was right off elevator which made it noisy at times. TV was positioned to bend to couch or... More

We didn't check in until 1am, after the airport shuttle dropped us off. At the airport we waited for the shuttle for about 15minutes (it was a silver Marriott shuttle). The room was nice. The furniture in good shape. Microwave was out dated, but we didn't use it. The fridge was quite. My main complaint would be how slippery the... More

We are staying here for four nights and I'm so Happy!! The suite has a kitchenette, desk, sofa, two queen beds, and a bathroom with the sink separate from the tub area. The queen bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in, in a hotel. We are in room 118, and I did not hear... More

Chosen only because another familiar go-to hotel was booked, we'll always stay here from now on when visiting Portland. The beds were exceptionally comfortable, the room/suite was large, bright and well appointed, and the sitting area afforded this poor sleeper a quiet reading nook without disturbing her partner. Although there were more young families and very noisy children than we... More

Wonderful place to stay! Room was large, clean, and had a lovely tree out the window. Breakfast was a huge spread with choices to please anyone. Food was fresh and delicious. Elevator was a bit slow trying to accommodate all the floors, but still quick enough to be ok. The location is beautiful, surrounded by trees and flowers. Pool was... More
