Everything was as expected at this Hilton Garden. It's a great location if you are planning on spending a lot of time downtown Portland. It's very easy to walk everywhere. The rooms were large (two double beds in our room & a sofa) and the staff was very friendly. The lobby/lounge area was quite spacious and there was coffee/tea available...

My wife and I had a wonderful 2 day visit in Portland, staying at The Downtown Hilton Garden Inn. The staff was exemplary, the hotel was very good value and the recommendations to Portland's culinary scene were wonderful. Try and stay in Room 618 if available - what a treat.

The waterfront of Portland, ME is a fun, cosmopolitan, quirky spot that shouldn't be passed up. Staying on the waterfront, as in this hotel, only enhances the experience! You can see the ferries coming and going to the islands, see a cruise ship if it happens to dock at that time, and watch the hustle and bustle of the well-known...
