My husband and I love the city of Portsmouth and had seen there was a new Residence Inn right in the downtown/ waterfront area. Now I have to admit I love Marriott but seldom stay at a Residence Inn because of the quality and service of most of them. We decided to take a chance because of the location. It is 1 block from shopping, waterfront, great restaurants and nightlife It is also walking distance to Prescott Park and Strawberry Banke!! Yes, there is a $12 valet only parking fee but you don't need your car for anything else and the car is safe! The decor is soft colors of the seaside and crisp and new. The furniture is good quality---meaning you don't sink to the floor when you sit down! There is a full kitchen and a huge bathroom with an oversized shower. Windows open if the is a nice seabreeze but if not the air conditioning goes down to 60! Best of all was the king sized bed which was extremely comfortable and a great TV. Keep in mind this is a brand new RI and not the other one which is on the outskirts of Portsmouth!!! RI's offer a free hot breakfast and this was the only shortcoming--the quality of the eggs and potatoes were shaky but there was plenty of other food. Everyone we dealt with was totally happy and anxious to help. I would go back there any chance I get!!!
