We try to go to Portsmouth every few months and when we do, we always stay here. The price is very reasonable, they have valet parking with is a must in downtown Portsmouth, and the staff is really great. The hotel is up to date and clean. The lobby is well done and always clean. The couches are comfy, and...

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...

We stayed here for a quick overnight in Portsmouth in a one bedroom suite. This is a nice contemporary, clean hotel with friendly hotel staff and prompt service when we needed pillows and ice. This hotel is very well located right in the heart of Portsmouth within a short walk to shops and dining. We did not eat the hotel...

I usually don't stay downtown when I work here, but needed something walking distance to a restaurant this weekend. I found a parking spot across the road from the hotel and it looked like their was a large parking lot across the street as well. The lobby left me with a good impression and the service was quick. My room...

We have always stayed here on our trips to NH. The location is good as it is an easy walk to downtown. When Chris Moulton was running the hotel our stays were pure pleasure. If there were any problems he was always there to talk to in person and would listen and respond immediately. Not that much went wrong when...

What a great weekend! Loved our home base - Residence Inn Portsmouth. Nice, contemporary decor throughout- rooms, bathroom, lobby/lounge, hallways. They allow dogs which was a treat to see. Friendly staff - front desk, valet, breakfast crew. Good complimentary breakfast - none of that fake egg business. :-) VERY comfortable bed. Loved having separate living room space so I could...
