This hotel is once again an excellent choice, especially for an extended stay in Portsmouth. They went through a rough spot with some big changes (renovations and personnel changes) but under the watchful eye of manager Jonathan Newton they are back on course. The planned newly renovated rooms are beautiful and elegant with some nice new touches like dimmer switches...

Well located downtown Portamouth, NH. Walking distance to everything. Valet parking is practical but expensive. The service is fast, polite and courteous. The rooms are spacious (I recommend the large corner rooms - perfect for families!). Clean and well furnished. Being downtown, there is some delivery/garbage/construction truck early morning. The breakfast (included) offers a wide range of hot and cold...

The location is great in Portsmouth. A bit off the main drag but still easy walking to the Portsmouth restaurants and shops. Hotel is nice, good suites and their cleaniness is good as well. My only complaint is the WiFi. It's dial up slow and trying to work on business here as been a test of my patience. I stopped...

We picked this property for our 1-night stay primarily for its very convenient location to downtown Portsmouth's restaurants and activities. This Residence Inn was about what you would expect for the chain, possibly a little better than some as it is relatively new. Everything was clean and orderly, the staff was courteous and efficient and the breakfast offerings were all...

The location of the Residence Inn can't be beat. Valet parking, check in, and Portsmouth awaits. We stayed on a Saturday in March. With a whipping wind, the coldest day this year. The windows in room 507 were not fully closed, and there was no way to rectify this. The wind was coming into the room from the gap. We...

I have stayed in the hotel about 18 nights so far this year and will be here for another 2-3 months. The staff has been super friendly. Especially Miranda, I needed to book 3 months worth of rooms and she was happy to do it for me. Saved me a ton of time and effort. The breakfast in the hotel...

On the edge of downtown, a short walk to all the shops, restaurants, etc. Very classy decor, love the gray color scheme. RI rooms all have kitchen areas w/ full-size fridge, small dishwashers, 2-burner stoves, microwave, pots/dishes/glasses/cups/silverware, etc. Large couch, TV, free limited cable (HBO but no TCM). Some rooms have a separate bedroom. Comfortable beds. Wifi is usually dependable,...

We usually stay at the Sheraton when we have to stay in Portsmouth. We're local to the area so it's not often we get a hotel room. Well the Sheraton is overpriced for what you get. The Residence Inn is spectacular. Great price! Rooms are amazing! Nice and big, really big kitchen area. They're super comfortable and the shower in...
