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.

The Wife and I with another couple there for a fun time in Portsmouth. Good clean hotel with easy in and out of town location. Location close to everything downtown. Friendly staff but under staffed and seamed unorganized for breakfast. Rooms ready early and let us check in at 1:30. I would stay there again.

Hubby planned a get-away for Christmas. The young lady at the front desk, who was very nice, upgraded our room, overlooking the river. The waitstaff were great, they couldn’t do enough for us, and the place was spotless. We def. would stay there again.

The location is great. It's less than a block from all the downtown Portsmouth shops and restaurants. We had a nice room with a view of the harbor..The rooms are bright and very comfortable. The check-in was great; we got there early and, even though our room wasn't ready, the woman at the front desk found us a nice room that was available. The valet was easy because when you want your car, you just text the valet and they let you know when your car will be ready. Only 1 small nit - The Club Lounge is about the smallest lounge that I have been in. The breakfast menu is very limited compared to other lounges -there wasn't even any bread for toast. The Club Lounge is so small that all the tables were occupied at breakfast. Read less
