“Wonderful location and great hotel for business AND leisure”
Reviewed 14 February 2011

This reveiw mechanism would not allow me to choose Business AND Leisure as Purpose of Trip which would have been the most correct way for me to label my recent stay at the Portland Harbor Hotel. Stellar location and very helpful staff - most quiet hotel room I have ever stayed in and we all were talking about the comfort of their beds. A colleague caught a head cold in the middle of our meeting and the staff noticed her resting in a chair outside the meeting room and immediately made her as comfortable as possible - even brought her hot broth and hot tea . Loved that we could enter and exit the hotel quietly with their attractive street door to elevator access or you could go up the stairs right to the front desk. We stayed an extra night after our meeting concluded to enjoy dinner and a show and will make plans to go back again soon this time JUST for leisure! We could walk to many shops, restaurants and the auditorium where our show was playing.

Terrific friendly staff. Hotel is located in a perfect location to visit all of what Portland has to offer. I found the hotel clean and comfortable the room was a little on the small side and a little pricy $170 for a Saturday in January. The rate may have been high due to a Martini Ice Bar event, which was included in the rate. The event was just OK.

When traveling I prefer to stay in Boutique non-national branded hotels and this place fits the bill. I suggest you try the PHH.

My husband and I went for a "date night" at the Portland Harbor Hotel Ice Bar 2011 and we would highly recommend the event and the hotel. The event was well planned, well thought out and a lot of fun. The hotel was wonderful, the staff was accommodating and attentive, the room was very nice, and everything was very clean. Everywhere you turned staff was waiting to assist you, including the manager and his wife. The very large crowd never became unruly or unpleasant, a tribute to proper planning and staffing. We'll be going back next year.

My husband and I have been coming to the Portland Harbor Hotel for 4 years now. We love it, and I can't wait to come back. From the comfortable rooms, to the excellent food, it's in the heart of Portland just steps to our favorite restaurants and shops. We will travel from Cape Cod sometimes just for the night to satisfy our cravings for some of the best New England food and people. The Portland Harbor always accommodates us, and we get the best sleep in their high end comfortable rooms. We won't stay anywhere else. We send all of our friends,co-workers,business associates, and family to this hotel.

The staff at Portland Harbor was very friendly and accommodating from the time we placed our reservation to when we drove away from their on-site valet parking.
Our room was a perfect size for 2. The peek-a-boo- shower was a unique feature I had not seen in a hotel room before. Ruth, our reservation agent, was correct when she suggested it while we were booking our room.
We did not eat in the hotel restaurant because the convenient location allowed us to walk to other local spots and enjoy what Portland had to offer. However, the menu looked great.
We will definitely stay here again.
