Nice quiet hotel in downtown Portland. Even numbered rooms have nice waterfront and street views. Good size, clean rooms, and wonderful breakfast. Valet parking only but its a bargain for $18 as compared to $37 for neighborhood parking garages. Nice place to visit close to walking trails. Like other Portland hotels prices tend to be very high in season.

Thanks so much for staying with us. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the room, and all that the hotel had to offer! It was smart to come to the Portland downtown market in the off-season, as it can still be a great experience for much less! - Kevin Walker, GM

Nice sized rooms. We got a room with two double beds and a sofa bed, which was a great size for our family. Refrigerator and microwave...

I've stayed at Hilton Garden Inns a few times. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. I like that they have enough space to walk around with 2 adults and 2 children (ages 9,11) without feeling too cramped (in a 2 queen beds room). I enjoyed the pull out sofa area since we were with friends, 2 other couples with...

From valet service to the front desk and the breakfast staff, I was treated as a valued guest. Location is perfect for enjoying all the Old Port us to offer. Breakfast was wonderful with a wide variety of delicious foods and a special omelette cooked to order. Bed was comfy and the room perfectly adorned. I would highly recommend this...

Portland is a great town and this is a great location to experience it. Fantastic dining experiences are all within walking distance from the hotel. Try the local cuisine - also try the oysters.

Location of the hotel was great, Irish Pub across the street, bakery next door, could walk to many restaurants and bars. The staff were friendly, helpful and informative about things to do and places to go. Met many friendly people in the bar in the hotel. Easy access by car to many of the local attractions. Highly recommend this hotel.

Have probably stayed at this hotel 50 times over the last 3 years, and have never been disappointed. Sloan, and the lounge staff, does an excellent job as well. The food and drinks are great, and look forward to the next stay... Thanks

With the added competition in the Old Port lately, I'm surprised they don't make a better effort to cater to guests. I don't enjoy waiting for 2 people at the front desk to finish their conversation before acknowledging my presence. Also extremely noisy.
