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).

Awesome location and beautiful hotel. Friendly staff, accommodating throughout the entire stay. PHH is steps from Wharf Street / Old Port which means it's walkable to just about everything (bars, restaurants, parks, shopping). We paid a nominal pet fee which was worth every penny. Highly recommend for couples/families/etc.

Great experience at the PHH. Best location in town, literally steps from Wharf Street and Old Port. The hotel was super clean and seemed to be following very strict COVID policies.

The staff - from the front desk to valets - were all super friendly and helpful. Likely won't stay anywhere else when visiting Portland going forward - especially considering how accommodating they were to our pup (~$50 pet fee). Read less

A very nice hotel with a family-friendly and classy feel, this place is well known by locals and visitor who come e wry year. The rooms are adequate but not large and the lobby has a wonderful bar. They charge $25 for parking which seems a bit high. Located in walking distance from bars abs restaurants on Wharf street.

We had an incredible time and experience staying here. We come to Portland often and this will for sure be the only hotel we stay at. Everyone was so attentive and friendly-it made our time so enjoyable!

We stayed in the Executive suite for 2 nights and its a great weekend getaway! With a room as great as that you don't want to leave but when you do Portland is right outside your door! The room was clean and bright and comfortable.
