Can't imagine how it could be better. Staff were all very nice and helpful. They even let us check in a little early since we arrived early and the room was ready. Very nice rooms. Get one with a courtyard view (we were in Room 316 which overlooked the sitting area by the fire). We enjoyed sitting in the courtyard... More

Central location, friendly and very courteous staff, modern bathroom, comfortable room (not large but perfectly sized) and most importantly; immaculate. Free efficient Wi-Fi. Good morning coffee is available on each floor until 10:30AM. Lovely lobby (w/Concierge) and bar that offers happy hour drinks and small plate appetizers, along with a beautiful outdoor dining area.

I stayed in this hotel in April with my children and husband. We really enjoyed it. It is in a great location; great room, clean, nicely decorated, comfortable. Great location. The service was excellent. We had breakfast in the restaurant and it was very good. I would highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel was clean and beautiful and perfect for the setting. The courtyard with the fire pit is a sweet escape in the bustling Old Port area. The staff was wonderful, and they even left us little lobster chocolates and waters while we were out and about. The location was perfect, and we will definitely be coming back here soon!

We arrived late and the valet was gone for the night. However, a member of the staff still came down and tended to our bags... More

Ok, I expect to pay more in a city but after traveling all through New England and staying at 5 hotels (this being our 6th) I am disappointed that I have to pay $18 per night for parking and we are staying multiple nights.

PHH is located in the Old Port neighborhood of downtown Portland. It's the absolutely perfect location. The hotel itself was very nice. We had a room facing the courtyard, which was very quiet.
