    The food, coffee at the desk, courtyard, staff and my room (which was a queen bed) were all great. Other than people outside of my room on the front lawn talking pretty loud late at night it was a very pleasant stay.

    Great location. Walking distance to some of the reknowned establishments of Portland, such as, Salt & Straw for great unique ice cream, Pine St. Biscuits, Petite Province and so much more. The Kennedy School is unique and opens one's curiosity to roam the halls to discover all it's hidden treasure. Despite Covid restrictions we enjoyed our time in Portland.
