4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

The hotel is in a great location close to all that downtown Portsmouth has to offer - dining and shopping! The hotel was clean and quiet, despite being nearly sold out. The staff was friendly, as I've found in most every Hilton hotel!

Absolutely perfect! We needed a hotel following a Christmas Eve family get together and the Portsmouth Hilton Garden Inn was the perfect place to stay. I'd highly recommend to anyone in Portsmouth on business or leisure travel.

When visiting Portsmouth not only is this hotel the ideal place to stay for any type of travel, their bar and lounge area alone is worthy of a visit. I had a great time during a recent weekend stay. A solo traveling woman, I'm cautious of where I walk into for a cocktail or glass of wine. The bartenders during my stay, Jonathan and Katie, were terrific. These two were so friendly, knowledgable and easy to connect with. The live, soft music was another great feature. Definitely a worthy cocktail venue. Stop in!

If only more hotels were as pleasant as this one! I stayed on a December weeknight shortly before Christmas. Hotel was very quiet, even though there did seem to be a fair number of guests. Bed and plush pillows were fantastically comfortable. Loved the hot apple cider in the lobby -- it satisfied my craving for somethin' fruity! Front-desk staff friendly and professional. When I got to my room, I saw that the bath had a shower yet no tub. I went back downstairs and asked if I could switch to a room with tub, and my request was graciously accommodated. Terrific water pressure and piping hot! Lobby looks very nice; they had tasteful Christmas decor. If I could change one thing, I might lower the volume on the muzak and/or set the televisions on mute; it would make for a nicer sit in front of the fireplace. Overall, staying here was a splendid experience.

The staff the service and quality of food was excellent. I couldn't ask for a better hotel to stay at. From the valet to everyone there it was great. The prices are reasonable. The bartenders and front desk help awesome! Shamus helped me with a fax I needed to send immediately.... He was courteous and professional. We would definitely stay here again for a weekend get away.

Room Tip: The king size beds most comfortable!!!!!! Views were great of the historic town and waters with b...

The staff of the Hilton Garden Inn located in Portsmouth, NH went way above & beyond to accommodate my daughter & son-in-law on their 1st wedding anniversary. They married a year ago before he was deployed to Afghanistan, so we have not had the actually wedding and they did not have a honeymoon. The staff were so kind and professional and just absolutely over the top to make sure this was a special stay for my daughter & son-in-law. I brought a cake & bottle of champagne & not only did they put those items in the room for me, they sent a complimentary fruit & cheese platter with crackers and chocolate covered strawberries. I went to pay for their breakfast & they sent them complimentary tickets for breakfast. All of these things were way above & beyond our expectations and certainly appreciated. I can't thank them enough. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel. The rooms were very clean, staff was fabulous, location perfect.....20 out of 10!

We went to Portsmouth to visit family and stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is so convenient to all the restaurants and shops because it's right downtown. The room and bath were very clean and everything well maintained right down to nice fluffy towels. The staff was super friendly and after the first day the maid actually left a thank you message for the tip we'd left. We went to the bar one night where we chatted with the bartender and had breakfast in the restaurant on Sunday before heading home and again found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.

The only negative thing I have to say is that the mattress was harder than I prefer but it was tolerable.

Room Tip: I prefer the top floor always and have that in my frequent guest profile and they gave us a room on...
