“Very nice staff”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

The staff was very friendly and the room was nice. We did notice there were 4 to 5 meetings and/or conventions going on each day and made the place very crowded. One of the two elevators was broken and the wait time was very long. Also at night hubby and I went to the lounge for a romantic drink and it was very crowded. Nice motel to stay in but not for a romantic stay. The hot tub and pool also were very nice.The did have very good complimentary cookies.

Newly renovated hotel. Great location, close to 95 but quiet. Close to lots of restaurants and shops. Worth a stay. Try the Fire & Water Fish & Chop House restaurant... great food.

Flew in late to Portland and stayed for a night before heading north. Chose it because it was a Marriott and it was very close to the airport....and I'm so glad I did. The front staff was helpful and friendly - Warren, the night front desk employee even helped me fix my Kindle. Great breakfast, nice bar and a Starbucks (a plus!). Room was clean and spacious. Hotel has been recently remodeled and it's lovely. I'm looking forward to staying here again!

Recently attended a conference at this property. Check-in was a breeze. The housekeeping staff was excellent, especially Charrise. My room was located on the 6th fl a couple of doors away from concierge lounge, where the breakfast and evening appetizers were plentiful. The rooms are spacious, with full room width windows for a view of the Maine Mall.
The bed very comfortable and plenty of desk space for work, free Wi-Fi as well as a coffee bar and a flat screen TV.
This property has a restaurant that is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You'll want a car as shopping, other restaurants and site seeing are within site but not walking distance. The Maine Mall, Macy's- JCPenny-Sears-Christmas Tree Shop-Target along with several others are about a mile or less away, but beware there are no sidewalks.
For those looking for a pool there is a med size indoor and a great gym.
A great value, especially if you check the internet specials

Room Tip: Request a room facing away from the back....View is offices and the roof of the conference center as...

Although the room furniture is tired, the lobster omelette is worth the stay! Veronica at the front desk is the best hotel employee staff member that I've ever come across in my world travels.

I stayed here for a night between Christmas and New Year's with my wife. We were promptly greeted at the front desk, and check-in was completed quickly. We were very happy with our room, and found it to be clean, spacious, and nicely decorated. It was a perfect place to order in pizza and crash for the night, and the beds were very comfortable. It is conveniently located to nearby shops and restaurants, and is only a very short drive to Portland. We stayed in one of the rooms at the end of the hotel, so it was quite a walk! Our room was all by itself at the end of this corridor, and then there was this other corridor once you got inside the room before it opened up. Very strange, but kinda cool. I felt as if I was in one of those secret agent movies where they seem to walk forever down corridors and have to go through a series of doors. Anywhere else in the hotel, its not far of a walk at all.

Let me start by saying that this hotel is not a resort and it is not ultra luxe. But we love it, and it has never let us down. The property sits on a hill and is affiliated with the adjoining golf course. It is tucked into the landscape so that it is barely noticeable until you pull into the driveway.
The rooms, halls, lobby, bar and restaurant were all remodeled within the last several years. The lobby adjoins the bar area and has ample seating for socializing or business meetings. It is warmed by a fireplace in the cooler months, and is tastefully decorated. A small library with 4 computers is off to the side.
The rooms are all up to date, decent sized and fresh. Rooms have a good size (40"?) flat screen TV. There is ample work space. Decor is appropriate to the local area.
The concierge lounge is on the 6th floor. Breakfasts and evening appetizers are excellent. The concierge staff is welcoming and knowledgeable.
The restaurant is very good, serving a large breakfast buffett, and a full lunch and dinner menu featuring local seafood as well as the usual Marriott offerings.
The best part of this hotel, and we stay there on average 25 nights a year, is the friendly staff. Everyone, from the front desk to the bartender to the housekeeping folks are warm and genuinely friendly. If your travel plans take you to the Portland, Maine area, this is the place to stay. Enjoy!

Room Tip: There are two luxury suites, rooms 523 and 423. There are at least 4 executive suites, 517, 521, 61...
