Used a groupon to stay at this lovingly restored inn. Check in was a bit slow due to their internet connection being down (with all info only available online) and several guests arriving at once. We were showed to our room and oriented as to how everything works by one of the owners, who was funny, detailed, helpful and thorough. Perhaps of note to other travelers is the fact that there is no elevator, so those with difficulties walking up and down a few flights of stairs would not want to choose The Port Hotel for a stay.
It was a lovely inn, beautifully decorated and appointed with nice views of scenic Port Washington. Our stay included the Champaign brunch which was VERY busy but excellent food.
We also opted to have dinner there one night because it was cold and rainy which left us under-motivated to go exploring for other places. The service and atmosphere were nice. The food was only average, with one of us ordering a ribeye steak and receiving something more akin to a strip steak. While the waitress handled it exactly as we'd have hoped she would, she seemed shocked when in reality anyone looking at the steak would've clearly known it wasn't a ribeye....so the kitchen prepared and served a lesser cut of meat and hoped we wouldn't notice?
We'd definitely stay at the Inn again, but would skip the restaurant.
