We stayed at the beautiful historic Wentworth By The Sea for the weekend. The two rooms were on the third floor which is the concierge floor, so there were complimentary drinks and a breakfast in the beautifully decorated concierge room. Check-in was fast and easy and we found all of the staff at the hotel to be very friendly and accommodating.The room views of the ocean or harbor are spectacular from the large glass doors that open onto the small balconies. The rooms were impeccably clean and beautifully decorated.The beds were comfortable and the hotel was very quiet despite the fact that it was full over the weekend.There are plenty of activities for those wishing the swim or use the fitness room but we chose to walk the grounds which are spectacular even in the cold early spring. It's a short drive into Portsmouth which was bustling with activity as the weekend kicked off the Arts Festival. This hotel is a true New England gem, a rare find with its modern amenities while remaining true to its historic roots.

Very nice property, numerous visits, always in winter. Great views and location.

Overall, service is exceedingly pleasant, responsive, with mixed results at times. Valets were great.

Rooms are adequate, some wear, furnishings need upgrading. Nice soft goods. Reasonably quiet.

Great restaurant. Again, earnest but uneven service Usually got it right on the 2nd try with a smile.

Room Tip: Room inventories on the web site don't seem to match actual furnishings.

We stayed at the Wentworth by the Sea for a birthday weekend get-away from March 13-15th. The location is perfect, it's close to Route 1 and downtown Portsmouth, but set back and away enough that you aren't in the heart of things. We stayed in a harborview room on the 4th floor, and it was worth the extra few dollars spent because the view was really lovely. The room was clean, good sized and well maintained, and the king bed was incredibly comfortable. The bathroom was very spacious, and the heated floor was a nice touch on a cold winter night. The staff was wonderful, and everyone we encountered was pleasant and helpful. We did enjoy the breakfast buffet one of the mornings. The selection was impressive, and the food was fresh and plentiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away and our time at the Wentworth and would definitely return again.

Room Tip: A harbor view room, on a higher floor, is worth the additional cost, the view is lovely.

I was not sure what I was expecting never having been here before but it is a beautifully restored inn and a place that we thoroughly enjoyed! Our room was in the main building and since it was a rainy weekend we were very happy that we were! We used the valet parking service - can't beat the $5 charge! We had appetizers and drinks at the Salt bar - suggest the meatballs and scallops wrapped in bacon - absolutely delicious! The indoor pool, outdoor hot tub and jacuzzi are a must! We had dinner at the Salt Bar Restaurant and we loved the atmosphere and the food. The Marriott has done a fantastic job of keeping this an inn style but with all the a entities that you find in their other properties. We are definitely planning to come back in the spring/summer timeframe because we want to try the restaurant at the marina and see the grounds in nice weather! The entire staff could not have been more accommodating.

My husband and I went for a quick getaway to celebrate my birthday. Stayed in the marina units, which are very well appointed and have a lovely view of the water/boats. Definitely worth considering and given the season we got a good rate. In the winter season it was very quiet and lovely. Had a facial in the spa which was very well done. wish I'd had more time to spend there. While I would say we had a nice visit we did have some problems. The one bedroom unit we were in was on the lower level and because the path down the stairs was icy it was difficult to get to the room. When mentioned, they were kind enough to move us. But the first unit they sent us to was leaking from an ice dam. The second unit proved just fine. Still it was a lot of moving for a two night stay. It's been a tough winter to be sure, but I'd say that engineering could have been a bit better about clearing ice and snow. And they'll have some repair work to get done before the spring season gets underway.

Room Tip: Marina units are really nice.
