Pros: Clean and modern, good breakfast.
Cons: The hot tub needs stronger jets and it was a little cooler than most.
Location: Great access to Old Port. Enjoyed walking to the Science Center and DeMillos Restaurant on the wharf.
Had a great 2-night stay with my husband and 10 year old son. Very comfortable room for the three of us.

We travelled to Portland for a weekend getaway. The hotel staff was friendly, the room we were given was clean and comfortable, and the parking was convenient. This hotel is not right in the hustle and bustle of downtown Portland, but for those who enjoy a short walk, it was convenient to restaurants and the sights.

The hotel is clean and well appointed. It was a little difficult adjusting the heat to a steady, comfortable temperature, but that's the case in nearly all hotels. A small dishwasher, 2 burner electric stovetop and normal refrigerator are provided, as well as dishes, dish soap, and full size coffee maker. There are other thoughtful touches, such as a bulletin board and magazine rack, so good for longer term stay. Comfortable bed and well placed light fixtures. Walking distance to good restaurants (1-2 blocks), parking garage in next block for daily reduced fee. 5-10 minute walk to old port and financial district, a few more to arts district. 1 block from waterfront.

Great location

Pros: Everything.
Cons: Parking was a little confusing because of road construction, not much can be done about that.

The hotel is within walking distance to many shops, restaurants and bars. Plenty to do and see. Comfortable and nicely appointed room, you could stay easily for a week. Very comfortable bed, clean. Staff very helpful. Wonderful breakfast. I will stay here again and highly recommend.

Better than living at home! Except for the parkin

Posted Oct 19, 2017
Pros: Comfortable, luxurious room.
Cons: Parking was awful. My husband could not get out of the ramp with parking cards even after walking back to hotel to get new card. 45 minutes!
Location: Not really waterfront at all!
Comfortable room with everything one might need for any length of stay.

Ok overall, but...

Posted Oct 11, 2017
Pros: Staff were very nice and the breakfast is good, offering a few more items than the usual breakfast buffet. The room was clean.
Cons: Fix the broken toilet seat and don't give people rooms above noisy construction.
The toilet seat in the bathroom was loose and slid sideways. We were given a room directly above a construction area that started at 2 am and kept us awake. . Disappointed that parking was $18 extra charge and located across the street. Somehow I missed that in the original description.

Good stay near the city center

Posted Oct 10, 2017
Pros: Breakfast.
Cons: The parking cost should not be on the guests. Parking should be offered for free.
The hotel is very well equipped and the room was very good too. Beds were comfy, breakfast was very good and had a lot to offer. It's a short walk from the center (10-15 minutes) but nothing too bad.

Great stay in Portland

Posted Oct 7, 2017
The best parts were the front desk staff and the shuttle which took us to and from restaurants as well as even to Whole Foods!! I enjoyed swimming in the indoor pool. The room was super!
