Portland Harbor Hotel

Maine, New England

The hotel

Located in the heart of the Old Port, relax in one of Portland's most inviting hotels. It’s the little things that make a difference when you’re away from home. And Portland Harbor Hotel’s thought of them all – little wonder it’s received the AAA Four Diamond Award for the last 12 years. There’s the complimentary Starbucks coffee each morning; the free bikes for exploring downtown Portland (and free town car if you fancy a more leisurely ride); the bar bites accompanying that day’s martini special at the happy hour; the chance to taste Maine’s famous seafood at Eves at the Garden; and the turndown service with a naughty pre-bedtime chocolate).

Great hotel to stay at. Right in the middle of everything you want or need. Starbucks coffee on each floor. Neatly Bagged ice for convenience. I would highly recommend this place! Staff of course is friendly and helpful.

I really enjoyed my stay. Except for delayed check-in because the desk staff was fielding more than a couple of calls at a time, and a lack of an electric outlet convenient to the desk in my room, this was a great place to stay.
