“Great location, ok room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

The location can't be beat! The room was very clean and comfortable, but nothing special. You are paying for the location, and it's well worth it. Staff was friendly. Housekeeping went a bit overboard with the sheets, 10 different layers of sheet and blankets.

We stayed one night in Portland and loved the hotel. The room was large and comfortable, the staff very friendly, the location just perfect for a wander around town. It did get very busy the following morning with 4 separate wedding parties going on, but we couldn't fault the hotel itself. The bar downstairs was lively on the Saturday night, great fun. Thanks.

After running the marathon, I was very happy that they not only had a room ready for my wife and I at 12:30 but also upgraded us. The room is good sized with a deck, extra large bath, mini frig and microwave and 2 nice chairs with hammocks. Bed is comfortable. Quiet. Great location in the Old Port. love the history of the building and its charm.

Certainly at the top end of Portland hotel pricing but in return you get a spacious, well appointed room, ample, friendly and very helpful staff, and a superb location for visiting Portland and environs. Likewise the lounge is friendly and inviting and frequented by local professionals and the restaurant competes favorably with the other, and numerous excellent restaurants within easy walking distance from the the Regency.

We spent four nights there and used the Regency as a base to travel the area for leaf peeping. With easy access to major roads it worked perfectly.

My only snivel, and it is minor, is the separate shower stall in our room had controls that were awkward in both form and function, and the water pressure was definitely on the low end of "low flow." That aside, the room was very nice in every other respect including excellent soundproofing, as was tested by a wedding reception one evening held not far from our room.

Highly recommend the Regency.

Room Tip: Rooms do vary, so go to the web site or call the hotel directly to discuss your needs.

I have the occasion to be in Portland regularly, and have stayed at more than a few inns and hotels, but more and more just go for the consistently reliable Regency. The rooms are always perfect, with no minor issues. The beds are very comfortable, and all of the accommodations are just right. From the staff when checking in, checking your car, and the handling of any needs, they just don't let me down. They do note that you are a returning patron, which is nice to have recognized when you frequent an establishment. It makes travel easier. It's the way it's supposed to be.

Room Tip: The ground floors can have some street noise, not bad, but upper floors are quieter.

We were very pleased with our one-night stay at this hotel. First of all, upon our arrival, we were pleasantly surprised that they had upgraded our room due to an anniversary. Comfortable room and awesome location. We walked to the bay for dinner, and walked the opposite direction the next morning for breakfast. The hotel itself has very nice dining options, but we chose to venture out. We will definitely stay here again. Also, pleasantly surprised with the free valet parking.

We overnighted on our way to a cruise from Portland the next morning. We appreciated the complimentary valet pickup service from the airport, as well as the willingness of the driver to deliver us and another couple to the ship the next morning. This is a medium size hotel fronting on a secluded cobblestone plaza and with a very personal and accommodating touch. The whole place is non-smoking and immaculate. Decent WiFi is free. My only criticism was that the mattresses were too soft to support my ailing spine, and the well appointed bathroom had a tub rather than a stall shower. But I would happily register there again on my next trip to Portland.
