Portland Harbor Hotel
Ranked #5 of 21 Hotels in Portland
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 9, 2010

We wanted a hotel close to restaurants, shopping, and the conference center and got all of that and more. PHH provided car service from the airport to the hotel, to nearby restaurants, and back to the airport. No need to rent a car! They were prompt, and the driver was friendly and informative. The hotel's lobby is beautiful, as are the hallways and sitting areas. Hotel service is awesome. You get a chocolate lobster on your bed at night. The concierge directed us to excellent restaurants and shopping. Nightlife is a bit of a challenge in Portland unless you're college age (we're in our 40's), but we were able to busy ourselves with activities more suited to our tastes with the concierge's help. The room was tastefully decorated and had super comfy beds. We had free internet access. We each got a massage at the spa and the services were good (B+ and affordable). The hotel was very close to lots of restaurants, shopping, and water activities. Here are the negatives: bar/lounge is the restaurant (all 1 room) and is small, rooms are a bit small, bathroom was small, street below is loud at night (we were supposedly on the "quiet side"), small spa, expensive drinks and food, definitely not a place for kids (stairs, cramped, no where to play). Vacation hint: take walking shoes, definitely do a sailing trip, bring a camera, and visit the Irish Pub Bull Feeney's (great atmosphere and food).

From the moment I stepped into the hotel, I knew we were going to have a wonderful stay. From the freindly staff at the valet center, to the gracious front desk staff, to the charming waitstaff at Eve's, we could not have asked to be around better people. Out of the blue, we were upgraded to a King Suite with Jacuzzi. The rooms were absolutely gorgeous with every single amenity you could ask for!!! I have already recommended this hotel to friends and family!

We have stayed here several times, and this is absolutely my favorite place to stay in Portland!
Everything about our stay at the Portland Harbor Hotel was first class. The professionalism and friendliness of the entire staff was excellent. Thanks to Ruth at the front desk for making our stay so special.

although our stay at the portland was a short one we were delighted with the professionalism and courtesy that we were shown on our arrival, needless to say we were not disappointed atall. The staff were most helpfull from the valet parking on arrival to checkin and help from the cocierge. The restaurant was a delight and the food was superb.

The Harbor hotel has a perfect location. Everything is walkable within the Portland downtown. The hotel is classic and historic. Eve's rstaurant and bar area was very nice for breakfast and dinner (the chowder is excellent). My only beef is the bar of soap with a hole in it (yes, a hole in the soap). I know the management is trying to be environmentally sound but there are better ways of doing it. One drop of the soap and the whole thing breaks apart. The whole idea is a bit silly for a hotel. Staff also were very friendly. Overall the hotel did a nice job.

Had a king room on the 4th floor. Room was a good size with a well appointed bathroom. Features a good sized TV though strangely it didn't really face the bed. The hotel is well located in the Old Port area. It only has valet parking and the entrance to the parking garage is a bit tight. The free wireless works well.
