I stay at several of the Marriott chains in the US. This is one of the best. We checked in and Edith was customer friendly and very knowledgeable. She gave recommendations on several restaurants and was very positive and up beat. There is one of the best coffee places, Coffee by

This is the second time we’ve stayed at the Residence Inn in Downtown Portland. We love this hotel because of the location (in close proximity to Old Port center), the spacious rooms to cost/value, and the complimentary breakfast. The last time we stay here, we were upgraded

This Residence Inn was pretty much like all the Residence Inns we have stayed at, which means that it was a very good property with a good staff. My only objection comes with a strange query about what I've noticed at many hotels booked through booking websites. The staff sees

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback. We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the hotel, but I am sorry if you were disappointed with the view. I cant speak to what other hotels do, but I can assure we never give a guest a lesser valued room for booking through a third party company. I'm not sure if you are aware, but the room type you booked was a studio king suite. The rooms that have a view are booked as high floor studio suites. Some times this isn't always known without being able to talk to the hotel directly. Please know that you were not put in this room because of how it was booked. Also, if you are ever unhappy once you get to your room, just give the front desk a call and let us know. We are more than happy to move you to another room. We understand that you are still paying a lot of money to stay with us, and your happiness is of the utmost importance. It sounds like our staff actually treated you very well, and I thank you for saying so even though you weren't completely satisfied. Please just know that you are very much appreciated, and we would never want you to feel otherwise. I hope you'll consider coming back again, and if you do, please reach out to me personally. I will make sure are given a room to your liking. If there is anything else you wish to address about your stay, please feel free to contact me directly anytime. Thank you again for choosing to stay with us, and we certainly hope to see you again. Sincerely, Adam Green

Everyone was incredible. It was like staying at a 5 star hotel. Adam was extremely helpful planning our trip and making sure everything was set for my wife's birthday. Our plane got in before the shuttle was scheduled to start so the hotel had one of their emloyees who was on

Loved the kitchen!
I'm uncertain about connecting rooms. I do know they have two bedroom suites each with i's own bathroom. Between the two bedrooms is a living room/kitchen with a dining table.

What is the closest restaurant in walking distance?
In addition to the restaurants mentioned, Sebago Brewing is just a block behind the Marriott. The grocery mentioned is worth a stop and does have very good pizza and sandwiches in the back available at lunch time (limited seating, tho). Ask the staff at hotel about their shuttle, they were very accommodating.
