I needed a 2 day personal retreat to help re-focus and center. I found it! An oasis of serenity and impeccable service in the midst of a bustling city with fascinating shops and dining short walks away. A scrumptious breakfast beside a winter garden, deep sleep beds, peaceful quiet, generous desk space, and smiles everywhere made for an ideal time....

We went for a managers retreat and our owners couldn't have picked a better spot! Great food, spirits and staff! The rooms were spotless and well equipped with everything you could need or want. The best spot that I retreated to was the fire pit outside the lounge....perfect! The location was in a great spot to walk to everything we...

We stayed during restaurant week and, as usual, the stay was great. There was a minor issue with check in but was quickly resolved to our liking. We were given a room that was on the main street side and do agree with others that it can be a little noisy but this we knew and we weren't upset. We...

Decided to stay for a Monday night after bringing daughter back to school, as we both enjoy the Old Port area. Greeted nicely by the valet upon arrival. Room was ready and clean but was a City View. A City View is nothing but a view of the office building across the street, would suggest trying a Garden View hopefully...

Thank you for sharing your experience with us and the Trip Advisor community.

Wish we went to Portland more often. My husband and I stayed here on a Wednesday and a Sunday night. Both nights were outstanding. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly, beginning with the valet and including the wonderful concierge, Reginald. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well-equipped, including a refrigerator. Good fresh coffee was available on each floor in...

Nice property - very difficult if ADA accommodations are required! Room clean, bed comfortable, bath is fabulous -- but street noise is unbearable... Police sirens most of the night, rousting of jolly-makers....ask for a garden view room & don't take no for an answer. If the grumpy old man us at the front desk he will sneer & belittle, ask...

Loud, lewd, and disrespectful. Avoid at all costs a room on the street side of the hotel, the obnoxious and toxic noise of the neighboring clubs and bars is debilitating. The behavior of the patrons visiting those clubs and bars is nothing short of vulgar and it will interfere with an otherwise restful stay. Disrespectful can only describe the apathy...

Dear Guest, It is quite unfortunate that the city nightclub noise disturbed you so horrifically during your stay with us. We have many choices for our guests, in room types and locations and would have gladly moved you to a quieter room had you let us know. Some guests choose these city facing rooms as they come here to enjoy...

Wonderful hotel in the heart of downtown Portland, Maine. Great location, wonderful staff all the way around. Everyone was happy, engaged and very nice. Great with information when needed and even the little extra. Sub zero temperature that night but warm and cozy in the hotel! Easy walk to dinner. We look forward to coming back for a visit!
