Portsmouth is such a great city to be downtown in, and finally a hotel that delivers what you need with the convenience of being in the middle of it all. I grew up in the Portsmouth area, and for years the only hotels were cheesy ones at the traffic circle, seasonal properties on the beach or the Sheraton downtown. This Residence Inn makes a notable addition of a downtown hotel.
And a great addition it is. Located in the new 'Port Walk' project, we were just a few minutes walk to everything we wanted to do in town - shopping, restaurants and bars, and the 4th of July fireworks. There is a large parking lot adjacent to the property which is helpful considering the challenges in parking in Portsmouth at peak times, though valeting the car may still be easier.
The rooms were clean (granted the hotel had only been open a few weeks...) appliances were modern and the furnishings fresh. The bathroom was HUGE, but have to say the one thing that was very disappointing was the virtually non-existent water pressure in the shower.
The King suite we had was comfortable, though I think it might be tight for more than a two or three people to stay for any length of time. Perhaps the other rooms are more spacious.. The price of the room was a little high, but comparable to the Hilton Garden Inn next door, so we chose the suite instead to have the extra room to entertain friends and family.
I didn't use any of the amenities, but there is a large lobby area with outlets and tables to work at if you are tired of being locked up in your room, comfortable seating areas and a bar area that looked to be open at night.
I'd stay here again and recommend it to others!
