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).

Originally we went thinking we’re gonna get this incredible room. That wasn’t the case at first we got a normal room still nice but not what we thought. All it took was a call and they moved us into a unbelievable incredible room.

Outstanding mid-week stay at Portland Harbor Hotel. Beautifully appointed rooms, super clean, staff attentive and at the ready with COVID info and offerings. We felt safe, comfortable and relaxed during our brief visit to the city. Looking forward to returning soon! You run a wonderful hotel, Gerard! Congratulations. Michael and Amy Briggs

The location is great. Right in the heart of the Old Port. The property and clean and well maintained. We live nearby and got the room to celebrate my girlfriends birthday.

The location is great. Right in the heart of the Old Port. The property and clean and well maintained. We live nearby and got the room to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. The bed was very firm and uncomfortable, and our room was extremely noisy (heating system/vents, etc.). Not a good night's sleep. We had a promotional offer for 2 nights for the price on one and we ended up going home to our comfortable bed on the second night. Read less

A beautiful hotel where we felt very safe given the precautions they have taken regarding the virus It is worth paying extra to have a courtyard view. Also, a bath tub. I appreciate the coffee and tea service in the morning and water available all day.
