Just got back from spending a night at the Residence Inn Portsmouth Downtown and what a great stay it was. Right from the moment we pulled up at valet parking we were welcome in as if they'd been waiting just for us. Amanda and Joey at the check in desk was super friendly and welcoming and made us feel like we were coming home. We had a delicious warm cookie and then headed up to our room, Wow! It was beautiful. We had a one bedroom suite and it exceeded our expectations. The room came with so many amenities I wished we were staying longer so that we could make use of them all. I was especially impressed with the beautiful bathroom and the Paul Mitchell shampoo and conditioner :-)
After unpacking we headed down to the bar for a drink. Heather was our bartender and was an absolute sweetheart. She was so friendly and funny and made every single person who entered the bar area, no matter if they sat at the bar or the furthest away from it, that she was there just for them. She was very attentive to everyone's needs. We watched her expertly whip up lots of different cocktails and make wonderful suggestions to those, including myself that weren't quite sure what they wanted. She even took the trouble to ask people where they were going for dinner and rustled up coupons for discounts to each restaurant for them. We enjoyed her company at the bar so much that after dinner we went back to bar for more drinks served by Heather. By the time we left we knew everyone's name at the bar and felt like we were spending the evening with family. Thank you Heather.
As we headed back up to our room we met Anthony at the front desk who was also very warm and friendly.
The morning breakfast was excellent, so many choices! With options to pack a breakfast and carry out. We sat in the very spacious breakfast area and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the very attentive staffed that checked on us to see if we had everything we needed and took away our plates as we were done with them.
Everything about this hotel screams quality from the art work,the toiletries, the furniture, the food to the absolute top notch staff.
we will definitely be back and highly recommend it.
