For the price and for the size of the rooms I was very pleasantly surprised. The staff here were very friendly as well as helpful. This is a no frills but a very nice place to stay while at the Portland jet port. Would certainly stay here again !

Hotel was nice. Small small pool but comfortable beds and great location. Friendly staff. Loved walking distance to restaurants and seeing the water when I woke up in the morning. Elevator is really slow. Everything was clean and nice.

Our second stay here for one night stop in Portland - again, it was a nice property, easy in and out, and walkable to anywhere we wanted to be, including a number of great restaurants. Would definitely stay here again. Had waterview this time - a game changer - fun to watch the harbor activity.

Hilton should use this location for a training video on how a hotel should be run!!! Great location, terrific staff, good food. Overall one of the best in the Hilton chain. Taylor at the front desk is a role model for what customer service is all about and Trevor is one of the best hotel bartenders i have ever met.

Hilton Garden Inn Portland Downtown Waterfront is located in the prime area of Portland waterfront which gaves us feel of a pleasant resort. Piers for ferries to Nov Scotia and other nearby islands were right in front of the hotel. Along Commercial Street, the main water front street, numerous restaurants/cafes and shops lined up. Nearby side streets were also full...

On our first visit to Portland, we wanted a comfortable, friendly hotel right downtown, on the waterfront, convenient to everything, and Hilton Garden Inn delivered. Our water view room looked out over the Casco Bay Ferry terminal and we could watch the comings and goings of the ships. The room was spacious, comfortable, clean, and had all the amenities we...

Just completed a 2 night stay with family...2 adults and 2 kids ages 8 and almost 13. I found a good rate and upgraded slightly to include breakfast.
