My fiancée and I have stayed in and around Portland numerous times but this was the first time downtown in the Old Port neighborhood. Location, Location, Location, this hotel sits in a fantastic location, within easy walking distance of all the great restaurants, bars, and shops of the Old Port. As with any Hilton Garden Inn the rooms were, extremely clean, spacious, and comfortable. The staff were friendly and courteous and willing to help with anything.The term waterfront may be deceiving to travelers who have never been to Portland before. You're not on the water, you have to cross four lanes of Commercial Street to get to the actual waterfront. Breakfast was good a little over priced for what you get. I won't say great because there are other establishments downtown that offer better choices, more variety, and a better bang for your buck. My only real complaint is valet parking, I hate it. When I want to get in my car and go I want my car, I don't want to wait for a parking attendant to go and fetch it. Overall this is 4.5 out of 5 and being downtown in the heart of the Old Port makes this hotel worth staying at. We travel to Maine every year and Portland is one of our favorite stops and I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to anybody coming to the Old Port section of town.
