“Great rooms and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

The Residence Inn is well-maintained, clean, and in a prime location. There are a number of suite options so it is great for families, bachelor/bacherlorette parties, weddings, and so on. The staff is always helpful and friednly!

I recently attended the "Stars of the Industry" awards dinner at this property. I had previously arranged a gluten free meal which I was assured that they could accommodate. My appetizer was a salad which contained bread and a bread roll. After they removed this without offering something else the entree was delivered and comprised three slices of sweet potato with a couple of slices of red pepper, one blob of goats cheese and a red sauce. For dessert they gave me five strawberries and about seven grapes. This dinner was $75 a plate and as it was for the restaurant industry I had high expectations of the quality of the food. Apparently I set my expectations way too high and was very disappointed. I would not recommend this facility for a function.

Great location in downtown Portsmouth within walking distance of restaurants, shops, etc. The staff was great and very responsive. Be prepared to use the valet parking - no parking lot on site. The attendants are very responsive but it could get a little old if you plan to come and go. During our stay, the room was a little noisy with a crying baby and a barking dog - but that's the luck of the draw. Overall, we look forward to staying again.

We could not have been more pleased with our stay. All of the staff were genuinely warm, friendly, efficient and seemed to like their jobs. The hotel was spotless and the suites were spacious. The buffet breakfast was fabulous; plenty of hot and cold food choices and nicely presented. We will make this our choice for any future stays in Portsmouth!

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room and got what we requested.

Nice new hotel in a convenient downtown location. Very helpful knowledgeable staff. Nice swimming pool. Minor gripe - This hotel has an 11am checkout time. Every other Marriott property I have stayed in have noon check out.

We recently spent a night at the Residence Inn when we were in Portsmouth for my wife's birthday. This hotel is conveniently located in downtown Portsmouth and close to everything. When we checked in the staff was extremely friendly and greeted us with warm smiles. The hotel is nicely decorated in tones of ocean blues and greys. Our room was immaculate and beautifully appointed. The appliances looked brand new and the bathroom was meticulously clean. While dressing for dinner, I went down to the bar. Gerri, the Operations Manager, was bartending as they were short staffed. Gerry, was warm, inviting, and made a point to speak to everyone at the bar. As the Operations Manager, she obviously has a lot to do in this hotel but clearly welcomed the opportunity to get to know hotel guests. She made such an impression on me, I am trying to think of a job I can offer her at my own organization! The next day, we met a chamber maid in the hallway who greeted us with a warm smile on what was otherwise a snowy cold New England day. The valet staff got all the snow off the car and brought it back to the hotel efficiently. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. I travel for business several times a month and I would highly recommend this hotel.

With the exception of getting a pair of key cards for the room that initially did not work, had an outstanding stay. Very nice lobby area, and the rooms are great - very clean and spacious. Great location! Parking is available across the street, and curbside parking for check in can sometimes be unavailable. Despite these minor nuisances with parking, we will go back to this hotel again. Downtown Portsmouth is within easy walking distance, one of the great benefits of this property.
