The location is amazing. Service was great. Rooms were clean and comfy. Bed was great and I slept like a baby. Two of my favorite things about the hotel were the organic/ all natual soaps and lotions. And every morning they set up a coffee cart in the hallway for free coffee and tea.

Stayed for a weekend in early November and had a great time. Hotel is located right in the middle of Old Portland within walking distance to numerous restaurants, bars, and the waterfront.

Good:
- Location was great.
- The hotel was very clean and beautiful
- Bed was very comfortable, bathroom was nicely modern.
- Staff was friendly and helpful.
- They had a restaurant/bar which was a nice way to end the day. Comfortable atmosphere.
- The rooms themselves were large and very quiet. We had a courtyard view though - not sure if there is more noise on the street side.
- Valet parking

Less Good:
- I always try to figure out one thing that isn't perfect...so...the elevator sometimes takes a long time. ;)

Can't comment on:
- the above mentioned restaurant served food, but we only stopped for drinks. Good menu though.
- Did not try the spa.

Besides being a great time, when we went they were running a deal that if you stayed one night the next night was half off - such an amazing deal for the quality of the hotel.

All said, the next time we find ourselves in Portland again, we will definitely look to the Harbor Hotel.

Room Tip: Courtyard room prices were slightly higher, but was very quiet so I think it was worth it. The stre...

We stayed at the Portland Harbor Hotel on a recent trip to Portland to visit friends and family. I had checked the reviews and comments re this hotel and was also pleasantly surprised to see a special rate when I booked for two nites. The hotel exceeded expectations with both accommodations and friendliness of staff. The lobby was beautifully decorated for Christmas and everyone from the valet to the reception desk and housekeeping staff were gracious and helpful.

When we arrived home, my husband discovered that he had left the keys to his car (not the one we drove) in the desk in the room. He immediately called the hotel desk and was advised that they would be sent with the next FedEx pick-up; in fact, they arrived today after only a day and one-half. No charges were made to us.

We would definitely stay here on our next visit.

Great hotel with a perfect location! The rooms were very nice and I loved the hardwood floors. Great food and drinks near by (fore street & street and co are steps away). We had the best cocktails at infinite distillery, which was down the block. Can't wait to go back to Portland and I will definitely stay here when I do!

Apparently the best place to stay in Portland, but we were not impressed. Rooms were ok, nothing special. Carpets looked worn and the hotel clearly needs some TLC. Lunch was horrible and service in the restaurant was terrible. Don't undestand why management is not paying more attention? Frontdesk was very friendly and proffesional and apologized when we shared our concerns. We hope they will do better next time!

The Portland Harbor Hotel is in an ideal location for walking to most of the main attractions of Portland. The hotel design is warm and welcoming, with good sized, very well furnished bedrooms. The staff were helpful and friendly, and breakfasts were truly mouthwatering. What more could you ask? This will become our favourite stop in Portland in future.
