I have stayed at this hotel twice in 3 months and it does not disappoint. The staff is very friendly from the people in the restaurant, to the bartenders to the front desk staff. The manager comes into the restaurant every morning and says hi. He does not hide from the guests.

This was our second mini-vacation in a year to this hotel..We had the best room in the hotel, overlooking the harbor with the wall of floor to ceiling windows. We travel with our 2 Westies and the hotel is extremely pet friendly and so quiet. The area is beautiful, so much to do and great for long walks down by the port with the dogs. Relatives are nearby and it's a quick trip to see them..Wouldn't stay anywhere else but a Residence Inn, we love them. Beds are perfect, room cleaned well, great room setup and a beautiful setting in Portland..perfect!!

Thank you for sharing your pictures of your adorable Westies enjoying the view from your suite. It is such a pleasure having guest such as yourself, stay with us to enjoy the downtown area with their pets. The Eastern Promenade is a beautiful place to walk with furry friends as well. I'm glad we have earned your admiration and look forward to many future visits with you. Please let me know if I can be of assistance with this.

Sincerely,

Stayed here for business. Great location by the waterfront. Right by terminal for ferry. Restaurants within walking distance. Shipyard brewery 1/2 block away. Nice fitness center in hotel with several elliptical and treadmills and stationary bikes. Had weights and a bench too. Friendly staff. Room was great and overlooked water -you can see the ferry as well as the sailboats in the water. Parking is $12 in a multiple/story garage across the street.

I stayed on business in January. Was very impressed with the professionalism of the staff at this hotel. The rooms were good and the meeting rooms were prepped well in advance of our morning meetings. The only downside was the internet speed but that certainly did not detract from the overall stay's quality.

We (party of 3) arrived late after taking the ferry from Yarmouth to Portland. We rec'd a warm welcome, and the gentleman at the front desk upgraded us to a 2 bedroom suite. Check in was easy, parking was reasonable. Our suite was beautiful. Everything that we wanted to do was an easy walk. We asked about places to eat and things that they liked to do in Portland. They gave us great advice. Breakfast was included and had a great selection of hot and cold items. E I'd definitely stay here again and can't wait to come back to Portland when I have more time to explore this beautiful city.

Great location and pet friendly. Check in was simple, quick and our little guy recieved an apple based treat from a local barkery. Our suite was clean, smelled wonderful, and had a view of the second floor patio. Every member of the staff, including house keeping were incredibly nice, genuine, and more than happy to tell you about their city and the go-to places. We will be back and we will stay here.

Check-in was handles by two friendly and knowledgable staff members. We went to our fifth floor room and were delighted to find a well laid out and smartly appointed small suite. The bed was most comfortable, the kitchen had all the necessaries and everything worked. The cleaning staff left us a sparking bathroom with plenty of towels. The breakfast on Sunday was fully staffed with hot food hot and cold food cold. Kids were all over the place and the staff tended to their special needs. We will be back!

Room Tip: Fifth floor is quiet
