We decided to take a last minute trip to up to Portland and I booked the hotel online through Hilton's website, one day in advance. I got a room with a King bed and requested a view of Casco Bay. Upon arrival (1/2 hour prior to the 4pm published check-in) we were greeted by the valet who directed up to the lobby for a quick check-in. Alex greeted us warmly at the front desk, he was excited to tell us that he had secured us a King room on the 5th floor, with a beautiful view of the waterfront as requested! He also told us he would be available all evening if we needed anything else, we only needed to call. They valet was very accomodating too, as we need to retrieve a few items from the car after dinner and he was most helpful. Our hotel room and bathroom were HUGE, the view was incredible and the entire place as immaculately clean (they even laundered the duvet covers). Although the hotel was quite full, we never heard any of the other guests. The room was quiet even from the street noises, there was a lively bar across the street but we never heard anything! We choose the bed and breakfast package for $15 extra (normally $30). They served a full breakfast buffet complete with eggs cooked to order, the waitstaff was very friendly and everything excellent! The hotel is located across from the Casco Bay ferry lines and the end of the Old Port, it was convenient to everything. I would go back there in a heartbeat!
