Our second stay was just as lovely as our first, and the Port Hotel remains a beautifully restored inn with modern amenities and comfortable accommodations.
This time we stayed in a room on the 2nd floor, pretty much right at the top of the stairs. I believe it was room # 204? It had an incredible two person shower with more shower heads than you could count, a very comfortable bed and furnishings and a nice view of PW. Our only compliant was that since it was in the 'main' hallway and even though other guests were being quiet, you could hear every single thing happening outside the door, no matter the time of night or day. Definitely NOT a good room choice for light sleepers.
We had a bad experience at the restaurant for dinner the last time and vowed to not try it again. A local, however, shared with us that THE thing to get at the restaurant was the Prime Rib--so we gave it another shot and were very pleasantly surprised. We'd most definitely recommend it for the Prime Rib!
Brunch was included in our stay, but this time didn't include free champagne. No big deal. The offerings were plentiful, fresh and delicious...definitely worthwhile.
As I mentioned in my previous review, in order to stay in the hotel portion, you have to walk up at least one flight of stairs which might make it a poor choice for those with mobility challenges.
Overall, a very good stay. We'd return and recommend it to others when in Port Washington.
