On a recent trip to Maine, some friends and I stayed in the new Hampton Inn in Portland. We could not have asked for a better location. This hotel is so conveniently located it's perfect. We were an easy walk from the port, the lively down town areas, and even the art museum and historical sites. Also, the restaurants just behind the hotel (e.g., Duck Fat) are too good to miss. However, the price we paid for these rooms (two rooms with two people in each room) was really high for this hotel chain. Even with an AAA discount, we paid $305 per night. Granted, there was a lot going on in Portland over the four days we were there, but those rates are, to me, more in line with an upscale hotel. Sure the rooms were clean and well furnished, but it is NOT the hip, boutique hotel it's trying to market itself as. Also, the breakfast was fine, but it's pre-packaged institutional fare, nothing special. The housekeepers wanted to get into our rooms before 10:00 AM each morning, which we found a bit bothersome. Finally, the front desk staff were friendly, but their advice about the city and restaurants was rather high-level and rudimentary.
