Stayed overnight for a work function in Portsmouth. Hotel is gorgeous. Beautiful decor and very up to date. Rooms are very clean and big. Bed and pillows are so comfy. I wish I knew what brand makes them so I could one for home. The only reason I gave this a 4 out of 5 is because of the extremely...

We had a very nice stay at the Portsmouth Residence Inn recently for a birthday celebration. Although a very odd thing happened (my car keys were left in another valet parked car, and the other car drove away with my car keys), the management staff was very responsive. They kindly retrieved my keys from Connecticut and safety delivered my car...

My wife and I stayed one night. Close to shopping and restaurants. Hotel is nice and clean and easily walk able to downtown. Price was reasonable and I asked the front desk to see if I could get a lower price and she did. One issue is we couldn't control the heat in the room. Fluctuated from hot to cold....

This is a great place right in the heart of downtown Portsmouth. Portsmouth has become quite the Yuppie town since my husband and I attended UNH two decades ago. This hotel is full of young couples and families (average age 25-45). It is a nice hotel, with accommodating staff and a nice easy continental breakfast. The only reason I didn't...

The hotel room was large and modern and clean. Loved the full size fridge and spacious kitchen area. And that walk-in shower was amazing! Stayed for two nights. Parked the car and walked everywhere. Great stay in a lovely city.

Good choice for Portsmouth. Excellent location downtown, next to pubs and restaurants and the waterfront. Service was kind of cool, but attentive and professional. The room was good size and very clean and quiet. BTW this town is GREAT, so quaint. Recommended!

The location is great for accessing all the shops and restaurants of Portsmouth on foot. The staff is helpful and friendly, and the facilities are very comfortable and feel fresh and updated. The decor is stylish without going overboard. The front desk check-in experience was wonderful, and all the staff -- from housekeeping to valet -- was very friendly and...

We have been to this Residence Inn several times over the years. It's location in downtown Portsmouth is perfect for parking the car and walking everywhere. Portsmouth is a great place to spend a few days with so many great restaurants and attractions. Unfortunately, the hotel itself is getting tired and dirty. Furniture is banged up, beds are worn, upholstery...

I travel quite a lot, and stay in Marriott's throughout the country. This is by far the finest Residence Inn I have ever stayed in! The service is also excellent from the front desk to house cleaning! The rooms were 5 star! I was on a business trip, but will head back when I get the opportunity to enjoy the...
