Went to Portland cross paths and rendezvous with some family traveling east and also some summering on Lake Sebago. Had just one day and night but filled every minute with a very fun experience.
The hotel room was so large w/beautiful king bed & linens, large bathroom w/separate dressing area and a small kitchette. I arrived at 12:30 but just wanted to leave my bag as I was meeting family for lunch. There was a room available on the 3rd floor but the front desk gal said, I can give you a room on the top floor if you don't mind waiting until 3pm to check in. I said fine. It was a corner room with triple windows looking out on the harbor and a double window w/view to the north. That evening , I took a swim in pool and the next morning, did a work out in the fitness center.
The location of the hotel is perfect. Just one block from the ferry terminal and Commercial Street right on the harbor. Portland is full of fabulous restaurants, boutique shopping and art galleries. The Maine Museum of Art is a must see-just completing major renovations. The hotel is a modern decor with a huge lobby. The room included breakfast which was buffet style and very nice with many hot and cold choices.Parking is $12./night in a garage right next to hotel.
