“What a class act!”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

From making the reservation to check in to the cleanliness of the rooms I was completely satisfied. Portland Harbor Hotel has a very courteous staff and they keep the hotel in top form. Bathroom was very clean, bed was comfortable and ease of checking in and out was wonderful.

Stayed January 2014, travelled as a couple

Lovely hotel in the heart of the Old Port and walking distance to every major attraction in the city. Valet service and speedy check in at the front desk with helpful directions and checked our bags while we walked around the city before our room was ready. Helpful concierge changed our reservation at Grace while we had a cocktail in the cozy bar by the fireplace. Room was immaculate and the bed was comfortable. You can control the heat in each room individually which was a nice change. Helpful staff, boutique environment, we could not ask for anything more from a hotel. THANKYOU!

Room Tip: There is some construction going on around the hotel, be sure not to stay on that side of the hotel...

Thank you very much for the compliments. Our staff makes the experience at the Portland Harbor Hotel very special. I hope you were able to take advantage of our Complimentary Lincoln town car service to your dinner reservation. We offer this service so our guests can enjoy Portland's food scene without worrying about driving back to the hotel.

We look forward to your return.

Thank you very much for the compliments. I will certainly share them with our staff.
We are very proud of our team. I am glad you got a chance to enjoy Eve's at the Garden Restaurant & Lounge by the fire. It is one of the hidden secrets of Portland.

We hope to see you again soon.

The hotel is situated at a very lively corner, very close to restaurants and stores which made it very convenient to explore town. My favorite thing about the hotel was the small feel and the attentiveness of the staff. There is also a very cute restaurant with outside seating.

Thank you for the compliments. Our location in the middle of the Old Port is hard to beat. Our restaurant, Eve's at the Garden, has a very cozy happy hour by the fireplace in the winter and the best outdoor dining experience during the summer in Portland. I hope you get a chance to try it on your next visit.

We look forward to your return

Had a wonderful two night stay on a weekend trip to Portland. We were able to book a great deal via the hotel website with a nightly rate comparable to other hotels in the city.

The room was much larger than expected with a comfortable seating area. Free coffee and tea in the mornings on each floor was also a nice surprise. Our room faced Wharf St and as other reviews have stated it can be quite loud. It wasn't an issue for us, but light sleepers may want to request an inward facing room.

There are so many good restaurants in Portland to choose from that we only had breakfast at the hotel - highly recommend the Corned Beef Hash! The bar is a nice spot to grab a drink, good selection.


Overall, a great location for exploring Portland with comfortable, large, well appointed rooms.

Fist time staying here but we have stayed at literally every place in the down town Portland area and this was the best and honestly less expensive for twice the experience than most. The staff went above and beyond and we were guests not customers, thank you for the experience

The staff here was incredibly helpful- we witnessed many of them working interchangable jobs, so maybe that was part of it- lots of teamwork. The rooms are spacious, and new-ish. Ours both had fireplaces, which was great on a very cold winter evening. I would seek those out. The layout of the place is a bit odd- there is a larger section of hotel, and then a little "jog" connecting the hotel to the offices next door. My guess is that this is a retrofitted older building and the layout was dictated by the old footprint. It certainly seemed that way. It is a great location for exploring Portland on foot and the food in the restaurant was very nice. The bar scene seemed pretty hopping at night, though we simply walked by on our way in. Parking is valet only, and quite convenient. A very nice place to spend the evening!

Thank you for the compliments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Our Team works together very well, and yes many of them can preform different duties by design. As for the layout of the building, the hotel was built in 2002 and in 2008 a new addition was built connecting the hotel to another 100 year old building. The Suites you stayed in with the fire place are in the new wing with a private elevator. These suites are very popular and should be reserved in advance.

I hope you will get a chance to experience Eve's at the Garden Restaurant & Lounge as well as our garden on your next visit.

We look forward to your return.
