Wrapped around an inviting garden courtyard, the four-story, 101-room Portland Harbor Hotel links the cobblestoned, boutique-lined Old Port to the waterfront, where sailboats depart for lighthouse-viewing, island-hopping and lobster-catching excursions. Public spaces have the air of a traditional private home, with patterned carpets, leather wingback chairs and a fireplace in the lobby, and sailing memorabilia and dark wood floors in the lounge.
Bed and Bath
Recently revamped guestrooms retain traditional colonial-inspired accents, from the carved wood headboards and hardwood floors to antique-style writing desks. Deluxe Rooms are a spacious 320 square feet and have views across the city, while Suites add space to spread out in separate living rooms. All bathrooms have granite vanities, showers and bathtubs, plus relaxing whirlpools in Jacuzzi Suites.
This is one of the few hotels in Portland with a restaurant on-site; Eve’s at the Garden is a formal spot for seasonal fare and local seafood. Reasonably priced valet parking ($16 per night) makes it easy to take a spin out to the beach, the lighthouses or even to Freeport, and there’s also a car service for trips to local restaurants. Bikes and helmets are free for all to use, and there are coffee, tea and newspapers in the lobby each morning.
How to Get There
Beautiful hotel, great location, super clean, and the nicest staff. 5 stars all around! The hotel was beautifully decorated for the holidays. Walking distance to absolutely everything you could ever want (or a short Uber ride) for food and drink.
This hotel used to be good. Now, there is no place to work in the room. Not even a decent place to plug in a laptop. Poor lighting. Very skimpy closet. Fitness center equipment doesn’ Work. Room service breakfast poor.
Staffs are super friendly and helpful! Room is so elegant and comfy. Location is perfect! Worth of every dime!!! Definitely coming back here for vacations! I don’t think I can think of anything to make it better!
I've stayed in Portland and specifically Old Port on numerous occasions for both business and leisure and the Portland Harbor Hotel has to be my favorite! It came highly recommended by my mom, who has stayed here numerous times. Everything was absolutely perfect - the room was large and beautiful, as was the guest bath. All of the amenities were top notch and the hotel was extremely clean. The staff were very friendly and more than willing to accommodate our needs. VERY highly recommend!
We stayed here for the weekend, and it was just the perfect location. The hotel is steps aways from some of the best restaurants and the waterfront. The room was very nice and comfortable. Free coffee and tea in the morning was great as well. We used the gym once, which needs some updating.
