From the moment we pulled into the lobby, I had that feeling of satisfaction that comes with making the right decision. Nicely laid out public areas. Staff at the desk were very nice and helpful. The room was spacious -- great to have a separate living/kitchen area. Nice to have 2 TVs. The breakfast was really good. Real eggs. Make-your-own waffles (daughter was very happy).
Not sure about the complaints I've read on parking (literally across the street). And, the walk to Old Port is easy. More like 5-10 minutes (15 if a stroll). You don't need the shuttle - unless it is raining or you have mobility issues. Portland is a great town, and this hotel is well suited to take advantage of all that it offers.
