Near baseball, concert venues and easy drive to town. Nice rooms. Nice staff. Hot tub Aweful.
The location near the train station made this hotel convenient.. Staff was friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast was solid. Hotel was full of guests, it seems the staff was having a bit of hard time keep up with day to day upkeep. The hallways needed a vacuuming for instance.
clean, comfortable, close to where I needed to be. Food was very good.
Hotel was clean, convenient to downtown, plenty of parking Front desk was very uninterested-did not even make eye contact upon check in, and restaurant is actually the worst I've ever had in a hotel. This place has potential but needs a little love.
People at the front desk and in housekeeping were very friendly, helpful and accommodating I had a late check out bc of a race I ran that morning. So I was taking a nap before I left with the do not disturb sign hung on the door. Housekeeping did knock and awoke me even though I was notified that housekeeping was aware of my checkinv out late. Besides that everything was great!
Good food, comfi bed Bathroom wasn't clean
Location was great, right off I-295, and minutes from where I wanted to be in the morning. Room was clean. It has a restaurant inside which was convenient. Food (bowl of soup) was OK. Water temperature in shower was extremely hot; I nearly scalded my back when going to turn off water. Also, there were (unused?) hand towels in tub. Did they just fall, or were they left by previous guest?
the friendly staff The mold on the bathroom ceiling and walls.
Friendly staff Needs some updating
The hotel was clean the staff seemed friendly enough. They had coffee, tea and cookies in the entrance which was nice. I really liked the size of the room and that it had a mini refrigerator which was extremely helpful for me. The hot water for the shower in my room was not working however I was only there for a half marathon so I didn't bother calling for help at the front desk since I was about to checkout and run a long distance. I'm sure they would have helped if I called about the issue
I am a female and was travelling alone to see my son. I got my room and from then on, felt comfortable, secure, close to conveniences and within walking distance to great shops, restaurants and more. I was also given the gift of a spa treatment while there, and that experience was heavenly! The dining room was decorated for Christmas and was absolutely lovely! I was also quite comfortable eating alone here, with a seat by a warming fire. I will be returning to Portland shortly, and would like my same room and experience. Loved it.
Great location. The spa was good. Our room was on the first floor and it sounded as though every toilet in the building was directly above us.
All of the staff - from valets to room service, desk clerks to lounge staff, housekeeping to spa staff - were friendly, knowledgeable, professional
I loved the location and the hotel/room was very clean. There was a continuous noise above the bed. It sounded like a pipe clanging. Thank goodness for the sound machine feature on the alarm clock. Also, the bed was very firm with starchy sheets. The terry cloth robe had a large rip in it as well.
I liked the historical nature of the building, and the architectural details. I found the hotel to be big on comfort, cleanliness, and friendly and helpful staff. Loved the complimentary coffee delivered to your room in the morning, much nicer than having to make substandard coffee in the room. The Mill St. restaurant on the premises has wonderful food and a lovely ambience. I didn't take advantage of any of the spa offerings, so I can't comment on those. It would be helpful for rooms to have a small fridge. The lighting in my room was not great for reading, but the huge windows let in a lot of natural light. The internet was painfully slow. I didn't understand the need for the valet parking, since the lot was just across the street, and I would have happily parked on my own and walked over. But it was inexpensive, $12, so this is not really a complaint, just an observation.
Great location. Walking distance to the old port and lots of restaurants and bars. A great stay.
Perfect location in downtown Portland - a very short walk to the wharf and local restaurants/pubs A bit pricy, but it's in line with other hotels in the area.
The room service staff and valet were super friendly and extremely helpful. Other than that, it was a horrible experience...not a bit relaxing! I work in the hospitality industry, so I know what great service is. When I got there, the TV wasn't even plugged in...then I went out with some friends, came back to a dark room, and when I tried to turn on the lamps on the side tables, I found that neither of them were plugged in. It was as if the room hadn't been used in months! When I called the front desk to complain, the woman at the front desk blew it off like it was no big deal! I ordered room service at 8:30 in the morning (which was great) and then put the do not disturb sign on the door. Well evidently it was irrelevant...I had fallen back asleep after I ate my breakfast, then at 10:30 I got a call from housekeeping seeing if I was still there...she didn't even apologize for waking me up, but at 11 I got a knock on my door from housekeeping! Check out was at 12, and I felt very rushed! For the money I spent, it was a horrible experience! I will never go back, and I will spread the word about my awful experience.
location would have enjoyed a fridge and coffee maker in room
Everyone at the hotel was so nice and went above and beyond to be helpful. The location is perfect right in the center of the city. There are so many great restaurants just around the corner. I also really enjoyed the spa at the hotel. The facilities are very relaxing and everyone that works there can help you figure out exactly what you need. We had a great stay and will definitely be coming back.
tub in room 525 did not drain.
The open large lobby/rooms, the happy hour, of course the breakfast! We have just assumed your hotel is our destination from now on. We've been staying there when we come up from Cape Cod to visit w/our Grandaughters! They have a ball in the pool and just love visiting w/us at The Hotel!
It is always comfortable. Staff is outstanding. Food is good. Omelets at complimentary breakfast are excellent. Convenient location.
The service of the gentleman when I arrived at midnight exhausted from a long trip overseas was excelllent. He picked me up at the airport and made sure I got to my room safely. Thank you
The very close location to the airport. Good food and lobby area. Easy access to the business center. No complaints.
The bathroom door in 346 does not close easily.
Small and friendly, close to airport and Mall.
Overall experience was enjoyable. We only stayed one night due to other travel plans, but would definitely recommend this hotel to others and would stay there again.
Outstanding service from their front desk staff.
Absolutely wonderful staff from the valet parking to the front desk to the housekeeping staff. Professional yet friendly.
I enjoyed the location and the friendness of staff. I also liked the room, since it was large, well decorated and with a nice view to the harbour.
good location, efficient valet parking, comfortable rooms, stayed with teenage children in adjacent room which worked well.
Friendly staff. Downtown.
This hotel offered everything you would expect from the Hilton name. It was a little more expensive than other hotels in the area, but was not overpriced and worth that bit extra.
Most everything. Fun to have Starbucks right there and the Mall across the street. Toilet clogged before retiring and we were too tired to call the front desk. It made the morning unpleasant to have a clogged toilet. I'm sure they would have fixed it right away but we were only there for the night and checked out early. That's our only complaint.
Location, cleanliness, pool, Bartender was REALLY slow, and when I asked the front desk for a re-print of my receipt from dinner the night before, she told me she couldn't do it, and didn't offer to figure it out. She did tell me to have a nice day...
Overall the room was great. It was very clean and the staff was nice. The walls however are very thin and we could hear our neighbors that kept us up through the night.
Good location. Spacious room. Great view. The window in our room needed replacing, could have been an even better view. Good TV, comfortable bed with choices of pillows. We didn't eat at restaurant in hotel since it did not get good reviews.
Room was very clean and was ready early. The restaurant wasn't very good and their wait staff was horrible.
It was a big disappointment. The hotel was very dated, and the front desk staff was cold/unfriendly. This hotel should have cost below $100. Instead, we paid approx $375.
There were no frills but my overnight stay was comfortable and refreshing. location right between Old Port and the Arts District was great. No snack machines, just soda machines
Best all around hotel stay in the area
Location. Poor value. Super expensive for what you get. I was stuck in a smoking room because Kayak's system (or the booking one - whatever) doesn't make it obvious that the room is smoking. There shod be a huge notice that the room being booked is a smoking room. Weird smells throughout... Room "mostly" clean. Internet didn't work and when I reported it I was given a support number to call. Sitting on the phone for an hour (which didn't solve the problem) was a big waste of my time. I stayed at the Westin after this place and it was night and day. They obviously train there staff at the Westin because from checkin to cleaning people they were helpful, courteous, and friendly. Everything about the Holiday Inn lacked, the Westin excelled at . Stay there instead.
It was clean, quiet and had a great view of the bay. The staff was professional ,friendly and helpful. Loved the snacks at the front desk. Was not happy at how much the room price was for the weekend we were there. Looked like a great deal until I put in my date of arrival. We went after Columbus day to avoid the crowds and high prices. No crowds but hotel price was high.
Location is ok, on the edge of easy walking distance to the Old Port area. For the price would have expected bigger, nicer rooms. It was just "ok", not a great value for the price paid.
I loved the staff, they where friendly and very helpful in giving me directions around town and what cool things to check out. I was not expecting the hotel to have a shuttle service that took me wherever I wanted to go downtown, and the driver was super friendly. My room was incredible, well lit, well decorated with a bag of popcorn waiting for me. I all around enjoyed my stay. Breakfast was good. I paid extra for the "seaside" suite - this does not mean it is a view of the ocean. It means it's on the seaside but that your view will be of a fish manufacturing plant. I was a little disappointed that I spent an extra $30 to stare are a fishery.
Great amenities, great location, excellent staff.
I wanted to catch the ferry to the islands, so it was a great location! Parking was very convenient. and downtown area and shopping was a few steps away. I came up a week earlier that my original reservation, and the staff was able to accomodate me. They were very friendly and professional. What was not to like!
Great value, wonderful room (spacious, modern) we will definitely stay here again the next time we're in Portland!
Very comfortable bed and large rooms. Near a brewery that gave off odors that were not that pleasant.
Location is close to harbor yet far enough away to avoid all the noise from Commercial Street. Lots of good restaurants/bars within walking distance such as Fore Street, Duckfat, Street and Company, Vena's, Gritty's and more. Free breakfast. Parking isn't free - $15 per night.
The room itself was clean and comfortable. House keeping did a good job cleaning room while we were out. Room had a microwave and refrigerator. This room was $50 more than the Ramada Inn across the street which was booked. The Ramada has a nicer bar/restaurant. We ordered room service and were made to feel like we completely inconvenienced them. The overall layout of the hotel is ridiculous. You either have to cut across the outside court yard or drive to the lobby section of hotel. Nothing is connected. The lobby has the fireplace, bar, restaurant, pool, and gym so this layout is totally a nuisance!
I liked how friendly the staff was and accommodating! The hotel was very clean. Complimentary breakfast wasent bad either! The pools were nice indoor and outdoor! The beds in our room were not as comfortable as i preferred and some of the hotel hallways were masked with stale cigarette smell
The beds and room were clean. Bathroom was mostly clean-passed for me and I'm pretty picky. Manager fixed the extra charges that the man who didn't know anything at the front desk charged me incorrectly. Had to check in very late, the overnight man at the front desk said he didn't normally work the desk. Had me fill out incorrect paperwork and charged my card, multiple times even though I used a third-party site and already paid. When I went in the morning to square it away, another man told me that I still owe the hotel money...very confused, a woman who I'm assuming was the manager, said no you already paid and it looks like the overnight man charged you extra. Apologized greatly and fixed everything. Thankful for her because it seemed no-one else knew anything.
Staff was nice
For the price that we paid, we could have stayed in a luxurious hotel. Very disappointed.
The location was conveniently located right off the highway. After making the front desk aware of the bed conditions the sheets were changed. When we arrived to our room there were evident stains on the bed sheets and upon further inspection there was a fair amount of soap scum and dirt on the shower floor. After making the front desk aware of the issues with bedding the next day the same thing occurred. I was definitely dissatisfied with the cleanliness of the hotel and would not book there in the future.
The pool and staff were excellent. It would be nice if they included breadfast in the cost.
The location was good for my purposes. I only had time to shower and sleep, so I can't speak to any other facilities. $185.80 for a basic room at a basic hotel is way too much. Several days later I paid about $10 more for a 5-star hotel on the Boston waterfront.
Coffee and bed was comfortable. Heater in our room was ridiculously noisy.
Good for the price. It was 65 bucks and clean. The bathtub looked old. Place could use an update.
Very good value for the money. Lots of people there for different reasons but all were accommodated. Nothing.
utilitarian, people were friendly could be cleaner
This hotel has a great location...close to the airport, close to the downtown waterfront, and easy to get around. It is definitely on the low-end of prices for the area and there was nothing bad about the area around the hotel. The complimentary breakfast was nice, nothing too fancy, but worked out great for a quick bite before meetings. The rooms are pretty dated. They have tried to dress them up with new bedding, but the rooms smell terribly of smoke, even though they are 100% non-smoking. The first room I got was so bad with a smoke smell, that I asked to be moved, which they accomodated. However, the second room was just as bad as the first, maybe even worse. My business colleague said the exact same thing about his room, so I am guessing that most rooms smell like smoke.
For an overnight near the airport with our adult daughter before her morning flight out, we looked for a suite, since her parents both snore. The second bed was a fold-out couch two feet from the first. Since we'd booked through Kayak, no .negotiation with the hotel was possible.
Convenience. My son and I attended a Maine Red Claws basketball game. The hotel was very convenient to the stadium and I envision the same for a Sea Dogs game. Room was basic but decent size. Nothing major. Outside, hallways and lobby were a bit plain and drab.
Staff was so very helpful -- allowing us to return our rental car to the airport the night before our flight and then they picked us up there, and they ordered a cab for us early in the morning to get to the airport; they directed us to pick up some breakfast items that were getting ready to be put out even though it was an hour before the official breakfast start time The place was so clean and the rooms lovely, quite the contrast to a motel we had stayed at the previous two nights
Rooms were very pleasant and a good size. Breakfast was excellent. Location was excellent and the hotel was good value for money.
The hotel is perfectly located, right in the old port near everything you could want. It was great to be able to valet the car (for one of the cheaper valet rates in the city) and just walk everywhere. The complementary breakfast each morning was good, nothing exceptional but enough to get us going. The staff were great and helpful with recommendations and making us comfortable. The room was comfortable and the bed was great-however I would suggest bringing your own pillow if you like a firmer pillow the pillows here are very, very soft-not a complaint but not my preference. Overall we enjoyed our stay. However, on our first night we left the room for dinner and when we arrived back at the room it smelt like pot. Not a faint smell but very strong and over powering and, frankly, incredibly off putting smell. I went to the front desk and the night desk man seemed aware of the issue and the solution was for someone to come up to my room with a bottle of febreeze. For a non-smoking floor/hotel I was underwhelmed by this fix. We only had this issue once but it was enough. Overall though i would stay here again simply due to the location and the ease of getting around.
Generally speaking, everything was great. The room was modern and comfortable. Staff was friendly. When we were attempting to check in, the front desk was having an issue with a rather unpleasant and annoying group of young women who were giving them quite a hard time. I felt badly that they had to deal with this issue. However, at one point they had all three of the front desk people dealing with this issue and nobody assisting the queue of people who were waiting for assistance. It would have been nice if one of those people were prioritizing the guests who were waiting in line. We were tired from a long drive and did not appreciate having to wait 20 minutes just to get our room assignment and key. Also, the price was incredibly high, and it seemed crazy to me that the parking was not included in the room cost.
Clean, inviting place overall. Comfortable beds and pillows. Good size room and bathroom. Nice breakfast in the morning. Really nice and helpful staff. Felt very welcome. I liked the free apples too. I liked everything.
They over booked and was not able to give me the room even though I booked and had a confirmation number.... I am extremely flustered and disappointed with the services.
Quiet Over use of fabrreze in room, price, view, not a $200+ non refundable value. Forced to valet park in their lot.
for the price you cant beat it. friendly staff,clean room
Next to a Denny's. Way overpriced for a simple out-of-town travel lodge. Sparse rooms. Weak shower.
Passed through Canadian customs the day after our stay. Phone tested positive for traces of heroin. Have never touched /seen heroin in my life.
Room smelled of stale smoke, my guess it was a smokers room. In addition there was pubic hair in the toilet!
Friendly staff, clean facilities, quiet Too far from old orchard beach
Cheap towels Rugs were unkept smelly Place smelled like alcohol Recycled bathroom tissue was given
Contintental breakfast was fresh, well stocked. The rooms were not kept up while we were there. Dirty towels, not making the bed and we found a baby bottle top and other things left behind by who knows how many guests. The whole place including the pool could be good if they gave it some tlc and got some cleaning staff with some ambition.
Dogs barking at night
Lovely room and common areas. Interesting city. Paying for parking wasn't so great.
They charge for internet, but if you go to Congress St Park, which is adjacent, they have free wi-fi.
Very comfort and great view if you booked a higher floor room. I preferred the waterfront location, but Westin also stays in a very good location as many fine restaurants are in this area.
Breakfast option in morning was minimal and expensive.
room is nice The hotel had a bulldozer moving snow from midnight to at least 2am. Absolutely no regard for hotel guests/
Excellent Coustmer service and high quality room!
Good downtown location and the beds were super comfy. We had a nice room. This is probably one of the better values in Portland as there are not a lot of hotels in the city. of all the hotels I've stayed in this was one of them. No free wifi which is ridiculous considering the cost of a room.
Very nice staff Clean Quiet convenient to many locations have to pay a lot for parking have to pay for wifi
The hotel was very clean and the staff we had interaction with were nice and accommodating. Only complaint is with other guests, but that's not the hotel's fault.
Very clean, new and modern.
The general atmosphere of the hotel Having to ask 3 times for towels for the swimming pool, therefore having to go in the hotel lobby in a bathing suit. No toilet paper in the hotel bathroom on the first floor.
it was clean. the room THEY DID NOT INFORM US THAT THE ELEATOR WAS BEING WORKED ON AT 9am .Not even housekeeping know.
Excellent customer service. Comfortable and well appointed rooms.
Very nice and new accommodation. Staff well trained and extremely friendly. Had one of the best hotel breakfast that I have ever experienced. Location is good.
Staff was attentive Clean and Comfortable Awesome location - near the action, but not in the action Easy to get in and out of from Highway Restaurant Looked Great - although we didn't have a chance to eat there. TV volume was terrible - even turned up half way was still quite
Amazing staff - they really worked to make sure our stay was special! Can't think of a thing.
The hotel was gorgeous! The perfect mix of eclectic and high end. The staff was extremely friendly and very accommodating. The entire hotel was spotless and the rooms were beautiful. Amazing bathrooms and a bed like a cloud. I will recommend to any friends looking to stay in Portland!
The decor was interesting. Staff was friendly. Room was clean. Conveniently located in the Old Port. A bit pricey.
Everything exceeded my expectations. It was great.
I liked the homeliness of the place - seemed like visiting my parents, aunt/uncles or grandmothers place! Nothing.
The hosts were very friendly and welcoming; willing to share their ideas on what to do in and around Portland.Location is just on the outskirts of downtown, with very easy access to the downtown area as well as the highway.
Old world feel but up to date amenities. Large room. Didn't feel like a "hotel". Loved it. A little away from the harbor and restaurants. Walk, cab,Uber solves that issue.
Very welcoming, very nice. Internet was in and out often.
Employees are super super nice and kind. Comfortable bed. 200% worth money
Warm decor , free and convenient parking
Very sweet and quaint. Some of the accommodations you share a bathroom, but you save money when you chose one of those rooms. Very clean and comfortable. Staff was excellent!
Clean, comfortable room-beautifully decorated! Location wasn't the best but that was a minor setback.
Beautiful quaint little inn No elevators: not an issue for me, but maybe for others.
The friendly and helpful staff, and the ambience. And the price. I agree with a previous reviewer that the bed was not as comfortable as it could be - a little stiff with hard pillows.
Clean, friendly,not too far from town External bathrooms won't be to everyone's liking , wasn't a big deal for me
Half the price of other options in old port, friendly staff and clean rooms. Very European set up, small rooms detached bathroom, but nice enough facilities. Interesting old building.
