Had a great stay at the PHH during August 25-27th. The amenities include great location, morning coffee and sweets upon request. You can also enjoy the hot tub down at the Spa ( steam room and sauna too). There is a rather large gym for the fitness buffs and nice clean locker room. The head bellman was very helpful for...

There is nothing not to like about the hotel. This was our 4th stay and seems better each time. Bloc action in the old port is perfect, so close to dining, shopping and waterfront. The property itself is top notch, rooms are delightful and super clean. We've eaten breakfast in the restaurant and have always been pleased with the quality...

This was our second stay at this property and it's quickly becoming one of my favorite Portland hotels. The rooms are nicely appointed if a bit small, but my favorite aspect of the hotel is the lobby bar and restaurant. The food was incredibly good and the drinks are fantastic. The ambiance is so nice with nice sitting areas around...

I was here for work over the fall and wow. The staff went above and beyond. The conference rooms were lovely (and not so chilly after we figured out the air conditioning lol). The restaurant was very nice, a little pricey for what you get but it's a hotel. My room was very nice as well, a bit small but...

My husband and I spent the night at this hotel last week on our way up to Bar Harbor. The hotel is located right in the old port area of Portland so we could easily walk to see all of the sights/shops and we were able to easily walk to dinner. The hotel had its own parking garage so there...

We were given a 2 night stay at the Portland Harbor Hotel as a wedding gift. We used the trip as a "mini-honeymoon". From the moment we were greeting by our Valet, ZAC STEARNS, we felt welcome. Zac handled our vehicle and luggage with care, promptness, and was extremely professional - with an infectious smile all the time. Our next...
