I had an enjoyable stay at the hotel and was delighted with the attentive staff, beginning with the valet and continuing with the front desk clerk. Location in the center of the Olde Port is perfect and the accommodations were perfect. Clean, friendly, welcoming. Will stay there every time I'm in Portland.

My husband and I stayed in one of the suites with a fireplace, sitting area and a soak tub. I have stayed at many hotels and I believe that this is the most romantic. I only wish we could have stayed longer. We also decided to eat dinner at the hotel because it was late when we got in. Usually...

The hotel is lovely but so are lots of hotels. The staff in the bar & restaurant (named "Eve's") especially Hanna - were warm and delightful, the ambience welcoming and comfortable and food quite good and well priced. In this reviewers opinion though - the staff are the distinguishing characteristic.

This is a nicely appointed hotel in the heart of downtown Portland. The staff is friendly and efficient. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the valet parking is under cover so you can stay dry during inclement weather.
