We are stayed at this hotel 10 times. It is wonderfully located in the Old Port District. Rooms are well-appointed with spacious bathrooms. Room choices overlook the hotel's garden view restaurant, "Eve's at the Garden" or city views on Fore Street. Rates are slightly lower with advance booking options. King rooms or corner suites are particularly nice. All hotel are...

Stayed here to explore lower Maine. Doesn't look much from the street, but once inside we were very impressed. Smart public areas with open fires (albeit gas fired) and subtle decoration. Room was large, well appointed and antique furniture. Spotlessly clean. Didn't eat here but dining was recommended. Nice outside garden with fire-pit where guests gather at night to share...

We checked in at 9:30 pm on a Friday night after a terrific day in Brunswick doing business and pleasure combined, and encountered unexpected rudeness upon arrival outside and inside the hotel. That put me in a mood to focus on the negative when we got to the room. I took note of the cold hardwood floors, over-refrigerated air, and...

Only stayed here for one night and jet lag had kicked in, so we weren't at our best to appreciate the full amenities the hotel has to offer, such as the fire pit or restaurant. The hotel is right in the middle of town and everything is within walking distance. The rooms were very clean, but a little on the...

We stayed at the Portland Harbor Hotel in the spring for a couples weekend exploring the area. It happened to be graduation weekend so was a busy time for the hotel and town but we had a wonderful visit. It is perfectly situated close to the harbor and allows you to walk everywhere. The rooms were cozy and the bed...

We kinda randomly ended up at this hotel on our way back home through Portland. What a good find! Nestled right in the middle of Portland, private parking, room was adorable and immaculate. Even the hotel had a "smell" in a good way though! Checkin was easy with a very courteous front desk staff. Check out was just leaving if...

Conveniently located in the historic district of Portland this is a true luxury hotel. The staff are excellent, the rooms spacious and comfortable, valet parking. Complementary Starbucks coffee set up close the elevators on each floor in the morning, beautiful courtyard, excellent food in the dining room. Would not hesitate to stay here again
