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.

We stayed in a junior suite and it was dated and the living room was oddly shaped. I couldn’t figure out the shower😔, bed was lumpy and lastly the air conditioning was soooo loud! Location was good. We ate at Surf and was very good

The staff are incredibly warm and welcoming. Earl at reception couldn't be nicer. The staff placed such a nice gift in the room for our honeymoon celebration. We are very impressed. What great property. Beautiful lobby and room. Great location, so walkable to everything!!

The hotel itself is ideally situated within walking distance of coffee shops, brew pubs, restaurants and historic Portsmouth. The first floor of the hotel has a nicely appointed lobby, restaurant and bar. The staff at the front desk and restaurant were welcoming and competent. Unfortunately, the rooms and room floor areas were several years past a renovation. Every room door is scratched. All hallway carpets are stained. My room had a dingy carpet, older faucets, cracked caulking, torn wall paper and curtains falling off the curtain rods. I have stayed at this hotel several times over the last 15 years and I was sad to see this. There are newer hotels downtown Portsmouth that may be worth taking a look at. Read less
