“Portland Harbor Hotel”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

Excellent value and so well located to enjoy a terrific part of the City and Old Port area. The staff are terrific and the Hotel itself is a first class properety. I will be back on my next trip into town and highly recommend it to anyone considering a visit to Portland ME.

Room Tip: First or second floor looking into the garden courtyard.

You're paying a premium price, but man: this is what a hotel should be. Great location (right in the heart of Old Port), convenient, on-site garage parking, extremely comfortable rooms, great service and a winning attitude from every hotel employee we encountered... honestly, this was easily the best hotel experience I've had - anywhere - in many long years.

Room Tip: Everything you've read about staying in a Garden-facing room? Justified. Old Port gets pretty li...

We stayed in the Portland Harbor Hotel for our graduation with my husband and had probably the best time in a while. The location of the hotel is amazing - right in the heart of Old Port, which is the downtown area of Portland, ME. Everything that we were looking for to do in the city was a very close walking distance. So we parked our car with amazing guys in the valet and did not have to worry about parking any more. The valet took care of our luggage and gave us a ride to Fore Street restaurant with a complementary town car because I was wearing very high hills.
The city has a lot to suggest to the tourists crowd and those who are looking to simply have fun.
We went to the nightclub 51 Warf and had a blast there.
As for the rooms they are very cozy. Harbor Hotel is the only one in Portland, I think, that has wooden floors in each room, which was perfect for me, since I am very allergic to dust.
The other amazing service that the hotel provides is the concierge. We had a chance to meet both concierges and those are the best people I've ever meet in my life. So personalized and educated, I had a great pleasure talking to them. They recommended me couple restaurants, and a night club. For breakfast we went to Porthole, and couldn't have a better experience.
A cup of complementary coffee that the hotel serves every morning was very helpful after a long night out.
We had a lot of interaction with the hotel staff and were not a single time dissapointed. Everyone was very helpful and well informed about the area and the hotel. We want to go back again in summer and we'll certainly stay only at the Portland Harbor Hotel.

We had an outstanding weekend at the PHH. We bought a RueLaLa certificate which included the stay, drinks, breakfasts and parking. From the moment we pulled up the hotel treated us with amazing service. They were friendly, proactive, and every interaction was as excellent as the previous.

Several days after we left we realized my wife had left her handbag behing in the room closet. We called the hotel and not only did they find it, but they shipped it back to us FedEx at no charge.

The only downside is that our room faced Wharf St with the loud club music at night. However the hotel told us about this before we booked - so it was no surprise. It didn't bother us that much anyway.

Lastly, Portland was a wonderful city to visit. There were tons of people around the streets, we walked a ton and really enjoyed our visit.

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!
