Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel

New Hampshire, New England

The hotel

If you like messing about on the water, this is the Portsmouth pad for you (and not just because of the heated pool inside). Just a stroll from Picataqua River, it’s an easy walk to the docks for the city’s harbour cruises – and you get glimpses of the water as you amble around the property. Some of the best views are from the casual but creative Two-Fifty Market – tucked away under the sweeping staircase of Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel, it’s a contemporary setting for classic dishes and New England favourites, including those ‘must tries’: lobster rolls and clam chowder (although it’s the harbour views that steal the show as you dine). The waterfront location also puts you close to Market Square, which throws you into coastal New England life, and to sights like Strawbery Banke Museum and historic Moffatt-Ladd House.

shower tub area has poor lighting. Room service was pricey and tip was included in the bill. I don’t know about you but I like to tip according to the service provided. It would be nice not to have it forced on you. However the most disappointing was the bed sheets had stains in them. I understand good help is hard to find but c’mon! SMHN

Great location, only downside to this hotel is that you pay for parking either $20 to self park across the street or $25 valet. Read less

This is my second stay at the Sheraton and again it was a great stay. There are many restaurants in walking distance to the hotel and the harbor. The staff was very helpful and check-in and out went very smoothly. I can't wait to visit the hotel again for the next conference.
