I really wanted to write a review for this hotel since the staff here were so outstanding and I hope the positive feedback gets back to them. Literally everyone from the front desk people to the cleaning crew to the valet guys were cheerful and helpful to the extreme. They had a free breakfast, free cookies in the afternoon and free snacks on most of the evenings. Free coffee and tea 24/7 as well.
My only complaint was the room was a bit noisy. I could hear the fridge and the heating clicking on and off at night and I could hear the person upstairs clomping around. My window also faced the construction site next door which was really noisy. I have really good hearing though so these things might not bother other people, I am not sure.
The location was excellent - walk to everything - although, weirdly, downtown Portsmouth doesn't seem to have a drugstore (??) The CVS is a mile away which wouldn't even be that bad but the weather was absolutely freezing. Lots of bars (all with live music), restaurants, shopping, etc. easily walkable from the hotel even in freezing temperatures. I did not have a car so that was nice.
All in all, a great stay. Nice hotel and very comfortable.
