“Great place, cool lower level bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

We really enjoyed our stay here. The downstairs bar was nice, friendly staff with free snacks! The room was clean and the robes comfy. The coffee was good and we would come back here anytime. In a good location to walk around and shop and eat (Fore Street was amazing for dinner!).

During the last 4 years while our daughter attended College in Maine we had the opportunity to
stay at the Regency many times. It was always a pleasure and we always left wanting more.
On this last trip we tried out the new 4th floor rooms with the outside decks - what a treat!
Even in the rain it was nice to have access to the outdoors, and views of the Harbor and city
itself. Something that we find especially appealing about the Regency is the relaxed feel in a
lovely old building - along with the most comfortable beds, and the terrific location with many restaurants and walks nearby.

Room Tip: We particularly like the suite in front with the turreted window, but on our recent visit we tried t...

Portland Regency is the city's old armory and that historic distinction, along with its exceptional period architecture and near-waterfront location, make the hotel an excellent choice for a weekend of exploring this hip Maine city. We spent the night here to see a concert walking distance from the property (just about everything is), and that made the stay doubly enjoyable because of the proximity of not only the concert venue but bars, restaurants, shops and museums. It was also an arts weekend with a number of streets closed to traffic and replete with celebrating pedestrians. Our room was smaller but extremely comfortable with three floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a cobblestone square. I only wish the hotel had provided more cute things, given the $275 per night price (tax included), such as upscale shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and more than one tiny soap! But there were comfy white terry-cloth robes, so that helped. Staff were friendly and helpful, directing us to where we needed to go. We did not, however, eat at the hotel's restaurant, but only because there were too many other choices along the city's walking ways!

Headed to Portland ME last weekend for my wife's birthday - a quick 24 hour getaway. Had a tremendous experience at the Portland Regency - a historic hotel located right in the heart of Old Portland. And a better location it couldn't have been - an easy walk to everything. We were quickly and warmly greeted by the valet (you can easily ditch your car for 24 hours as it is totally not needed) and the front desk. The 4th floor room was clean, updated and well provisioned - and included a deck that overlooked the street right down to the waterfront. The staff were all courteous and attentive. Of note, the spa here is a tremendous asset - both my wife and I enjoyed a fabulous massage by highly proficient therapists. In addition to the spa, the hotel has a very well equipped fitness center with a wide variety of machines, equipment and free weights. Much much better than your typical hotel fitness center. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone travelling to Portland (business or pleasure).

We had a wonderful experience at the Portland Regency Hotel and Spa. The hotel is in a great location, near restaurants and bars. We had a lovely room and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay here again. I highly recommend this hotel.

We loved the room, the deck, the spa, the fireplace everything really about the hotel . The only problem I had was not the hotel but the late night food truck parked under our room and the late night bar noise. I don't know the zoning ordinances but it would seem that the hotel could have some day about where these things can park. We were disappointed we couldn't leave our windows and doors open to enjoy the salt air while we slept. It was quiet otherwise with the widows closed.
Great stay overall though. We enjoyed our honeymoon .

My husband celebrate our anniversary and his birthday every year for many years. Can not think of a nicer hotel to stay at. We look forward to it every year and last year we spent a night before Christmas and the decorations were beautiful outdoors and in the lobby. Not only is this an incredible hotel but the entire staff goes out of their way to accommodate you and our room is always perfect. Thank you always to Portland Regency/managemant who always go out of their way for making wonderful memories for us:)) Sincerely, Rick and Susan
