The Residence Inn in Portsmouth is a lovely hotel conveniently located near Market Street and all the wonderful restaurants and clothing stores and only a block from the harbor. The staff was professional and always happy to assist us. Our suite had two TV's, a full kitchen , microwave as well as a sofa bed. Our bedroom had a king... More

Our first time to the Portsmouth area for a 5K race 20 minutes from the city. Very convenient property in downtown Portsmouth. Everything you may want to explore in Portsmouth is within a 15 walk. Property well maintained, very efficient valet service, hospitable front desk, good coffee. Request a high room for some sort of a view. Easy ride up... More

Excellent hotel on the edge of downtown Portsmouth. Walk to any downtown location with ease. Safe area even in the evening. Typical Marriott Residence Inn with very friendly staff. The location allows for easy car access to Southen Maine areas as well as Hampton beach area. Pricey during heavy tourist season but you can get some great rates in the... More

The only downside I found to this hotel is that parking is not free. But it is beautifully decorated with sand and taupe colors. The room was comfortable, lighting where needed, ice maker worked, could reach glasses in the cupboard easily (some of these comments are based on other RI properties). The breakfast area was expansive--lots of room for guests... More

Once you're in your room, you can begin to enjoy the Residence Inn, getting there can be a bit rough, however. The lobby is very small, and the guest elevators spill into the same lobby. Add luggage cars for guests who self served their check in/out (no valet available when we arrived) and the arrival was a bit unpleasant. The... More

Three good reasons to stay here: 1. Rooms are large, mostly suites with comfortable beds, good wifi, and everything works well and feels good. 2. Fitness center and pool are small but user-friendly and I liked the salt water pool. 3. Location is excellent, across the street from Green Elephant restaurant (really good) and easy walk to just about everywhere.

The people in the room above us had their kids running around and jumping up and down on the floor for hours. My 5-month old baby kept waking up with every bang. I finally called the front desk to ask for help. Olivia, who I spoke to, was condescending, rude, and refused to help. The first excuse was "they checked... More

My fiancé and I stay at Marriotts consistently, and this is by far the worst experience we have ever had. We stayed for Labor Day weekend. The people above us must of been making an extreme amount of noise for hours. It's now 930 and my 5 month old is sleeping, and they have woken him up for the 5... More

We have stayed here at least once a year since it opened. While the hallways were recently redone, the rooms have not been refreshed since the hotel first opened in 2008-ish, and it shows. The couches are filthy, rugs are grungy, and the cabinets are beat up. What doesn't help is the very lazy housekeeping staff. They don't do much... More

This is a lovely property! Rooms and bathrooms are great. However, I noticed that when we arrived the customary apples and cookies at the front desk were out. No replacements. Our room was dusty, both chairs and table tops. Bed was very comfortable. Mixed review on our stay. Downtown and easy to walk to Market Square and dining places. Might... More
