Hampton Inn Portland Downtown - Waterfront
Ranked #6 of 21 Hotels in Portland
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 December 2013

This hotel lived up to its expectations. It was a comfortable stay with a great breakfast in an excellent location. Everything was clean and modern. The room was a good size, with a TV that matched. The view (away from the water) wasn't great, but did give an OK view of the city. The bathroom was large and well appointed. No complaints at all.

Being able to access the Sebago Brewing Restaurant without having to venture out into the cold rain was a definite plus! When I return to Portland, I will definitely stay here again.

Went to Portland for one night on a weekday to check out town. Stayed at Hampton Inn because it is close (walking) to shops and happenings in Old Port, but was also a good price for the location and amenities. Very clean rooms, okay food for breakfast, friendly staff.

We stayed here for two nights during Thanksgiving Day weekend. I really liked that this hotel washes all of their comforters as well as the sheets before each guest's stay. I felt really comfortable sleeping here.

I don’t know if my expectations are overly high but the room was very plain with all amenities included. It is equipped with a mini fridge, large TV, microwave and coffee maker. Décor is very plain but the size of the room is good and everything is clean. The bathroom is very standard. The location is quite close to the seafront and shopping areas which is handy, but there is vacant land around this hotel because it is located at the edge of everything (shopping and restaurants).
The complimentary breakfast in the morning was very good and a nice added bonus even though disposable plates and cups etc were used.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The valet parking is great but a little overkill for an empty parking lot. The parking fees for Portland on the high side.

The only disappointment we experiences was the view. We paid a little bit extra for the rooms with a "harbor view". If overseeing parking lots is your thing, then you won't be disappointed, otherwise the upgrade probably isn't worth it. That being said, everything else about the place was very pleasant and we wouldn't mind staying here again.

Room Tip: Insist on water view do not rely on the upgrade!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a brand new Hampton Inn and from the moment you walk in, you can see that Hampton is working hard to change its image. Everything is done with clean modern lines and the decor is very pretty. It's in a great location, walkable to every and anything you'd want to do in Portland. The room was very large and comfortable. Added bonus: fridge and microwave in the room. Beds are excellent, and I love the fact that they have the nice, white duvets instead of the sketchy bedspreads of the past. All in all, a great stay at a great price.

Loved this hotel that was with in walking distance of the Old Port area. Very friendly and helpful desk clerk at check in. Free breakfast and internet although we went out to breakfast. Prices very reasonable at Thanksgiving time. I would stay here again.

The Hampton Inn was a fine place to stay over the Thanksgiving period, when one might have expected a "slacker" staff or poor service. Everything was first rate. I was impressed with the complimentary breakfast and the free shuttle service to the train station. I was given a decent map and good directions for walking along the coast. I do not own a TV and was quite impressed by the one in my room. I wished I had brought my swimsuit, but I did not know there was a pool. If I go back to Portland I would be certain to see if there was availability at the Hampton Inn. I enjoyed my trip to Maine completely.
