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.

My perspective of the Sheraton Portsmouth is of a consultant doing the regular weekly grind. I've tried every Marriott/SPG property in Portsmouth, and can say without a doubt that the Sheraton is the best choice. 1) The rooms The rooms are all modern, warm, quiet, and well furnished. For Elite members, this is one of the hotels that will take care of you and consistently give you solid upgrades. In several months of staying here, I've experienced a consistent level of cleanliness and comfort, with no exceptions. 2) Staff The staff here really makes the Sheraton shine. I spend much of my time at the bar, where Brad will take care of you, make you laugh, and serve solid food. (definitely the best food in a Portsmouth hotel.) Patrick, the manager, is a great guy and very professional. He looks after his guests, and he will go the extra mile to make sure your stay is perfect. 3) Location The location is downtown Portsmouth with easy access to the highway, restaurants, and major corporate headquarters in Portsmouth. They also have the easiest parking situation of any hotel in the area. In short, I can't recommend the Sheraton highly enough; and I double that if you're a business traveler. 4) P.S. The bathrooms have a hook to steam your shirts Read less

We had our wedding block here in April and I cannot say enough about the hotel and its staff! Conor and Dan in the sales department were so helpful and responsive. The were able to send me rooming lists upon request, without hesitation. The night of the wedding we received an unexpected bottle of champagne and strawberries from the two - very appreciated! Everyone that booked under the block had a fantastic stay at the hotel. The staff at the front desk are wonderful and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate all of their help with check in and welcome bags. Special shout out and thank you to Ben, Kasey, Tiffany, Paige, Nick, Autumn, and Alex at the front desk! The 2 bedroom suite provided more than enough room for the entire bridal party the morning of the wedding! There was even a full kitchen, living room and balcony looking over the water! Read less

I stayed at the Sheraton while attending a conference. The bedroom and conference rooms were well-appointed, the food delicious, and all the staff was courteous. The hotel is in a good location in that it's close to the water and within walking distance of downtown. I would stay at the hotel again.
