“Best Hotel in Portland”
Reviewed 4 February 2010

We love staying at the Portland Harbor. From the moment we are greeted to when we leave we are well taken care of by a staff of professionals. We love the big rooms, the great restaurant, the courtyard and the great location of the hotel. They are very pet friendly as we always bring our two dogs with us. We never miss the Ice Bar!

This is a relatively small, incredibly friendly hotel located in the center of Portland, Maine's historic Olde Port district....a couple of blocks from the waterfront, great restaurants & shops within blocks. Great breakfast overlooking a private courtyard. We were there for a Winter Ice Festival with ice sculptures, catered gnosh & drink....fun crowd in a classy atmosphere.
#1 positive is the quality of the entire staff and their personal attention to detail...we travel a lot & this is rare today.

This is one of my favorite hotels. It is located right in the heart of Portland and has a beautiful courtyard. It is elegant and has lots of charm. It is also very well managed and has an outstanding staff - very friendly and extremely helpful. I recommend it highly to people with taste.

The Portland Harbor Hotel is a tremendous hotel. Conveniently located in the right part of the city, within steps of the best restaurants and shopping. Great for business meetings and outstanding service. The hotel also has indoor underground parking which is great when the weather is a factor. Rooms are nicely appointed and restaurant has one of the best chefs in Portland.

Went to the Portland Harbor Hotel for their Ice Bar Weekend and decided to stay right at the hotel. It was a good choice. The room was large and comfortable and the bathroom was gorgeous. The staff was courteous and helpful. Turn down service with a chocolate lobster candy left on the pillows and classical music playing when we returned to the room was a nice treat.

P.S. the Ice Bar was a blast!!

Arrived at the PHH during the start of a snow storm on new years day. The following day I got married and the hotel shuttled my guests and I, to and from the ceremony that was across town during the peak of the snow storm. We then had our wedding meal at Eve's. Every one of my guests informed that the meal was the most fantastic wedding meal they have ever had and quite possibly one of the best meals period.
The service was amazing and the kitchen was able to keep up with 28 apps and entrees all arriving at the same time. Again a raging snow storm outside, great everything and a warm fire inside. Truly outstanding. Ryan, Eve's manage had sat down with me the week before and helped pick the wines that we served and facilitated my party in the table groupings that we desired.
Every member of the staff at the hotel from the managers, front desk, concierge, wait staff, bell hops, valet and yes even the cleaners were extremely helpful and friendly.
As for the rooms, I stayed in one of the Executive Suites. It had everything. Gas fireplace, Jacuzzi tub, flat screens, wireless connection, huge shower, king size bed - super comfy. Again this was for our wedding and we chose this suite over the honeymoon as it had a little more room than the Honeymoon suite so we could invite friends/family for a late night toast - we were shown both rooms the week before we booked. My guests were all raving about their rooms which had gorgeous garden views and all the amenities they required.
The gym has tons of equipment. State of the art elliptical and free weights abound. We wanted to get massages @ 9 stones spa however they were fully booked, the res manager called every spa in town and got my wife and I appointments at the time slots we needed at a very trendy spa around the corner - the hotel drove us there and back!! I really can't think of one negative experience. The hotel is beautiful, the staff bend over backwards to help, the atmosphere is relaxed and Eve's is a fantastic restaurant with an incredible chef. They do it all with smiles. I can't wait to go back.
