In the past week I have had the pleasure to stay at this hotel twice. They have always been very helpful and they provide shuttle service to and from the airport as well as to restaurants in the area. If you get a suite the rooms are very well appointed and spacious. Additionally they have two happy hours one at...

This place has been recently renovated and the renovation is generally good. They set the rooms up as extended stay rooms. That has been great. It is also a pet friendly place and that has worked well for us. The free buffet breakfast is quite good. The staff is friendly and helpful. The new key card system had some problems....

This was my 3rd stay at this hotel, and the 3rd time was the charm, as we were in a 4th floor room overlooking Casco Bay. The service was very friendly and we appreciated the early check-in. The room was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable - with a large television and good wifi. We also enjoyed the pool and hot...

We stayed here and went to a concert at the Cross Arena. The staff was super friendly and provided great advice on getting to the concert. The two bedroom suite was perfect for 5 guests. Highly recommended!

This hotel is very clean and has huge rooms. There was a nice breakfast and parking was nearby. Parking was not included in the price of the hotel. The view was beautiful and it was easy to get to restaurants and the Eastern Promenade. We will definitely be staying here again when we return to Portland!

Very clean and large rooms. We had a king size bed, couch, desk, and a dining table. The room also included a kitchenette which would come in handy if we stayed longer than the weekend. The room did not seem crowded and the views of the harbor were lovely. Here you are just around the corner from Shipyard brewery and...

Overall, a nice place to stay. The room has a very large kitchenette, a small sitting area and bedroom. Parking is next door, requiring a short walk, and somewhat confusing to navigate the first time. Front desk staff was helpful and courteous.
