While traveling to Portland for business, I've stayed in just about every hotel within walking distance of Old Port. After much consideration, this would be my top recommendation for tourists by a nose. (The Press Hotel is right on its heels.) Why? The lobby is warm and welcoming. The outdoor fire pit is cozy and useable in all but the...

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide positive feedback. We are very grateful for the recommendation. The new pantry area on each floor we just added includes a state of the art Starbucks coffee equipment that will provide a fresh brewed cup of coffee all day long, in addition to hot chocolate, tea, and chai lattee.

In a balanced view, the staff are great, the rooms clean and the location is super...... but the whole place has a bit of an Old Fashioned (not Old School) vibe, that makes me feel that Id enjoy the place a whole lot more if I was 70..... Restaurant is a bit too pricey I ate alone for the same...

We went to Portland this past weekend and had a wonderful experience despite the weather. The hotel is under renovation in some areas, but we saw no workmen, heard no noise and were quite impressed with what has been done to update the space, but yet retain it's old world charm. The rooms were spacious and bathroom was newly renovated...

Looking for a quick getaway for our anniversary and wanted a hotel in the Old Port area. PHH had a perfect location, within walking distance of all the attractions we had in mind including the Portland Art Museum and the East. Cozy, excellent breakfast in Eve's at the Garden on the premises.

I loved this hotel. Parking is valet and they also bring your bags up to your room for you so you don't have to worry about lugging everything around. The lobby is very inviting and the staff was very friendly. Check-in was simple and quick. When we got to our room, we were instantly impressed. As soon as you open...

Thank you for the wonderful comments. Our nightly turndown service with a chocolate lobster and bottle of water bedside is a very popular amenity with our guests. Our new pantry is now offering a freshly brewed coffee by a state of the art Starbucks coffee machine near your room all day long. We look forward to your return.

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights, we knew before our visit that the hotel is going through a renovation but we figured based on reviews that we had read it would be fine. We found our room to be OK but it was definitely in need of a freshening up. The throw pillows on the bed were filthy....
