This is a nice hotel with a very good central location. Hotel is modern and clean. Staff is very friendly and accomodating. Our room was ready at checkin. We noticed that others had issues at checkin on saturday as housekeeping was understaffed with hotel at capacity. Accordingly, housekeeping did not clean our room until 4pm on the second day of our stay. Similar issues with Valet parking. If you come at peak times there are too many cars and not enough valet attendants. This was not a problem for us since the central location allowed us to keep the car parked for our entire stay and we walked everywhere. The valet parking costs $15 per nite but it is actually reasonable as the alternatives are the Parking Garage next door which charges .75 per hour ($18 for 24 hours) or metered parking which costs $1. Per hour. The Breakfast buffet is very good and includes chef prepared omlettes, French toast etc... My omlette was very good and delivered to my table when ready. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others if you are visiting central Portsmouth.

Very nice Hilton. Clean. Comfortable. Convenient. Fairly friendly staff. Great location in downtown restaurant/shops area of Portsmouth. I would definitely recommend this place and return here.

Valet parking only, but the nightly rate was reasonable at $15. Free internet is a nice added value. Try the little german bakery, "Kaffee VonSolin." Great food.

Room Tip: Request upper floor away from the elevator.

Stayed here for the weekend of the Air Show. I usually stay at Marriotts as I like a little upscale. The Hilton Garden Inn had great reviews and I got a deal so gave it a try. It was very good. Very clean, updated and modern with pleasant and helpful staff. The room was larger than I thought it would be and the bathroom was marble and nice. It also had a little microwave and fridge (good for leftovers from the many restaurants in Portsmouth). The exercise room is very well equiped, modern and clean (and has nice free drinking water.) The location is excellent - short walk to the Boats and many fine restaurants.

Now for the reasons I didn't give the hotel five stars and call it 'nearly great': (1) Valet parking. I hate valet parking even thought they got the car for us very quickly and pleasantly. It is inconvenient, nonetheless, *and* $15 a day. (2) The pool is very small and is too hot. No one else was there at the time so the size didn't matter much (but it is only 5' deep too!) but it was heated too much and so did not refresh from the hot summer day at the airshow. (3) The breakfast buffet selection was pretty mediocre but okay taste-wise. It was not included so at that price I'd expect more. [Tip: The chef is there and will make a good omelet or Belgian waffle quickly on request.]

All in all, I'd stay there again considering the deal but I would research the area Marriotts first.

This hotel is very handily situated just off the main drag of Market Street, making it very easy to get around. The town is compact and walkable, and extremely attractive. Business Center off the lobby, good breakfast, coin-operated laundry and pool and fitness centre on Ground Floor. Staff helpful and friendly. Safe deposit box at Desk.

Room Tip: Probably all good

In the heart of the downtown area of this beautiful sea side city, the Hilton Garden Inn is a wonderful destination for a romantic getaway for two. The bed is comfortable and the property is well maintained. Great service and central to a number of romantic dining spots.

I am a person who feels if you dont have anything nice to say then dont say it. I Will say that the Downtown Hilton Garden Inn has a great location, for just walking out into the center of town, but feel it is priced a little to high, along with the nightly extra parking fee, for a famliy to enjoy. There are a lot of nice places to stay for less within walking distance of the quaint town of Portsmouth.
