Portland Harbor Hotel is ideally situation in the Historic district to pubs, restaurants, museums, waterfront you name it. The front lobby is elegant and warm. The staff works very well together from the valet service to the front desk to the restaurant. One has the impression that they are all connected and this makes the establishment ooze professionalism. The room we stayed in was modern, clean with a touch of old hotel romance minus the old hotel part. A good solid selection and would return without hesitation.

We just had a wonderful one-night stay at the Portland Harbor Hotel. This was our first hotel stay with our dog, so we were a bit timid when we arrived. My husband waited at the hotel entrance while I went to check in and make sure we could bring her through the lobby. Ruth, at the reception desk, could not have been nicer, and she immediately asked, "Did you bring your dog? Bring her in, I have a treat for her!". At that point, we knew we were in a great place! She also provided a list of dog-friendly things to do and places to go. The room itself was comfortable and clean, the location was wonderful in the heart of the Old Port area, and we really enjoyed our little getaway. The only downside was our stay was too short!

The Portland Harbor Hotel in the Old Port really is the best place to stay when in Portland! The staff goes the extra mile and the drinks and food at the on-site restaurant, Eve's, is superb! Took the complimentary limo to dinner on another night--how cool is that? Forgot a couple of items when I checked out, and all it took was a phone call to get those items shipped promptly to my home! I would not stay anywhere else! Love, love, love this hotel!

My wife and I stayed at the Portland Harbor Hotel for 3 nights. We were very happy with our accomodations and ammenities during our stay. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful in answering our questions. The valet parking boys were particularly friendly. While here we took advantage of the fitness room, happy hour, and just sitting in the outdoor courtyard enjoying the sun. Our room was beautiful and had a nice spacious bathroom with jacuzzi tub. It also had a nice view of the courtyard. It was within walking distance to all the Portland restaurants and shops and we took advantage of that. We completely enjoyed our stay here at the Portland Harbor and would highly recommend it to others.

My husband and I stayed here in March 2012 for two nights while I was traveling for business. I was very impressed with the ambience of the hotel, and it was immaculately clean. The bed and furnishings were new and comfortable, and I loved that there was tile and hardwood (as opposed to carpeting with who-knows-what in it). The bathroom was granite and very clean.

The turndown service was a welcome surprise (they turn down the bed, play classical music, and leave water bottles). The breakfast was also delicious and prompt, as I ordered room service each morning.

The staff was extremely helpful and courteous, and I would highly recommend this hotel in the Old Port area.

We stayed at the Portland Harbor Hotel for 2 nights, and were very impressed. The desk staff was very nice and very helpful, espically with local tips for things to do and places to go. Extremely friendly. The bar is great, and very chill, and we had great service there as well. The valet service is pleasant, quick and efficient, and the car service the hotel offers was indispensible the night it was pouring out. The rooms were very comfortable, I don't think I've had a better sleep at a hotel. Overall great experience.
