Had high expectations from the website and the price point ($400+ per night – pre paid) thought it would be good to try a ‘non chain’ luxury hotel – booked a Junior garden suite. Good points – location was perfect, room décor nicely chosen colours, good shower, Valet Parking Team, Wi Fi worked. Bad points – Bedding/sheets etc. old (that... More

Everything about our stay here was perfect. The location of the hotel is central to restaurant and shopping, we were here for several days touring around and only used our car once. The hotel was beautiful, clean, new and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful! Would definitely stay here again.

We have stayed at PHH several times when visiting this delightful town. The hotel is centrally located but quieter than others of similar style and price. Has a boutique feel with all the amenities you need. If visiting in the warm months, be sure to have a drink in the courtyard: beautifully landscaped, great service, small plates and drinks. Will...

This hotel was very beautiful and comfortable, even if the rooms were a bit small. All staff were very friendly, and the Concierge, Reggie, helped us book city and harbor tours and decide where to eat for dinner. The courtyard area is very cute and quaint. The hotel is in a great location in the Old Port district, with the... More

Stayed at the Portland Harbor Hotel over July 4 (2015) weekend and was very pleased. There are several other places to stay in "Old Port" - the center of the City's main area for hotels, restaurants and shops, and the Portland Habor Hotel is an excellent combination of high quality, location and value. As other reviews note, the location could... More

We have stayed here in the past. The staff are terrific and hotel is in a great location- near the waterfront and not far from shops. The courtyard includes beautiful gardens filled with perennials and trees as well as a fire pit...choose this view (garden) as the city can be noisy.
