Hubby & I got away for a romantic weekend in early June. This hotel is conveniently located - easy to find from the highway and also perfect walking distance to Portsmouth shops.
The lobby is absolutely beautiful and has the normal Starwood perks- free lemonade and water. The staff was so kind. We were looking for somewhere to eat and the conceirge pulled out a map and starting drawing all sorts of lines. She let us know where the best seafood, steak, italian, breakfast, and pubs were. She said if we needed anything else to call her and I could tell that she genuinely meant it!
The room was gorgeous- super comfy king sized bed, very large room. The only gripe of the entire hotel was the view. We thought that "harborside" meant some sort of view. Unfortunately all of Portsmouth Harbor has been plagued with gi-normous salt barges that are an eyesore and completely take away from the aesthetics of this normally beautiful city.
Not the hotel's fault though.
Our second day there we walked around Portsmouth and crossed the footbridge into Kittery Maine. We were pooped that evening upon our return so we ordered room service. UNBELIEVABLE! Excellent food at an excellent price. Even with the tip and fee it was a fraction of what we paid the night before in downtown Portsmouth and the food was better!
The room was so comfy that we spent the rest of our stay in it. The best nights sleep in a long time!
We found out from our room service person that the hotel allows dogs- a perk for us. You would never know it as the hotel is sparkling and doesn't smell. It felt like a 5 star hotel.
We really liked the toiletries...not sure what brand they were, but everything was orange-mint.
We did not eat in the restaurant or use the club lounge, but my husband used the gym, sauna, and pool with no complaints.
A great perk- FREE high speed internet. A lot of places charge a daily fee.
Another perk was the fully stocked mini-fridge. We thought the items were reasonablly priced.
You have to pay to park, but it's only $10 per day for self-parking. Your room key acts as a parking lot card and you can come and go as you please. But again, the car is not needed as everything is walking distance.
Looking forward to going back next year with the kids and dog!
