My husband and I stayed here for one night on the way to the White Mountains in New Hampshire. We were excited to try it because it is so new and right in the Old Port. It is true, they only offer valet parking, but as others have said, they are very quick. The front desk staff, while efficient enough, was a little bit abrupt. I asked for a wine glass to use in our room and they said that they didn't have any. That is the first time I have not been able to get a wine glass at a hotel, but it is a minor detail.
The room was very clean and modern. The TV was one of the biggest I have seen in a hotel room. I thought the bed was very comfortable, and most important, I did not hear any noises during the night - no slamming doors, no loud guests, etc. I am a very light sleeper and a quiet room is important. No issues there.
We did not eat breakfast at the hotel, although my husband has eaten at the adjacent restaurant (Sebago Brewing Company) before and he enjoyed it. I have also eaten at one of their sister restaurants in the Scarborough area and it was a good experience.
For $279 (plus tax, and valet) on a weekend in August, I feel that we got a fair deal. The hotel is definitely in walking distance of many shops, restaurants, etc. in Portland, and it is pretty easy to get to from the highway. When we spend another overnight in the Old Port area, this will be my first choice.
