Great room

Location: Great location downtown, just a short walk from all the great restaurants and things to do.
My boyfriend and I stayed one night here, but we thought the hotel room was very nice and comfortable. We had a king size bed with a kitchenette and a water view. It was very roomy and had a couch that made relaxing easy. The bed was super comfy, and we liked that the bathroom had the sink separate from the toilet. We checked out the free breakfast on Sunday morning, but it was pretty mobbed with guests, so we didn't stay long. My one complaint would be that the free coffee that was in the lobby was very bitter, and i thought it was undrinkable. But it was free, so I can't complain too much.

Great location

I spent more than I wanted for the room but it was super convenient to everything in downtown Portland. Besides, the price was competitive. We walked or rode bikes everywhere we went, or took the ferry. We found plenty to do. The Maine Duck Tour was our favorite. All of the tours (trolley, duck, boat) were very enjoyable and interesting, lots of history. Peaks Island is gorgeous! The bathroom cabinets were slightly worn but other than that, we were very pleased with the room and the breakfast. All of the staff were nice and helpful. Shuttle service to and from airport was super convenient. You can check your bags with the front desk before or after check out if you arrive early or have a late departure. Portland is a great town and we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation! I would stay here again.

Comfortable hotel in a great location

My fiance and I came into Portland to eat and drink at various restaurants and bars. The location of the hotel was perfect and the free shuttle service helped us get were we needed to to if it was too far to walk. The staff were all very friendly. Breakfast was very good as well, lots of options. Parking was at a garage across the street for $20. The room was very comfortable. We will definitely be coming back again.

Cons: The staff
I called the day of our stay and asked if there were any upgrades available. Courtney said she could not do it over the phone because I booked thru Travelocity. Courtney said I should ask when I arrive,it should not be a problem cause there were plenty of rooms available for upgrade. I asked when i arrived and was still put in our original room. This night was a make up night from Valentines Day because we had the flu. It's very disturbing to me to try twice to upgrade our room and get nothing in return.I could understand if were booked solid, but this was not the case. (not even close)

Great Downtown Location!

Location: I recommend starting with a trolley tour that includes a stop at the Portland Head Lighthouse and a ferry ride over to Peaks Island if you have time.
We were able to walk to most downtown attractions. The excellent breakfast was a plus and the room layout was nice.

Great location

Location: Most sites a 5-15 minute walk. We were located across the street from the promenade which was even plowed during a snow storm.
Excellent place to stay, conveniently located for downtown activities and very good indoor facilities. Breakfast was terrific. The parking garage was worth the cost as we were there in a snow storm and had dry off street parking for a very reasonable rate.
