Very friendly staff

Everybody there was very friendly and helpful. The only negative I would have is "ocean view" was more of just the parking garage across the street and a little speck of a dock. Shops and restaurants were very nice and had cool vibes to them.

If you can't get a reservation to Fore street, walk over there at around 4:15/4:30 and get a reservation for one of the tables they have reserved for walk-ins the day of.

Great stay. I got there around noon and they allowed me to check in early. The hotel is really in a prime location, within walking distance of everything.

Perfect Location

The hotel has a perfect location with restaurants (amazing bakery next door) and shops within minutes. Coffee, tea and cookies are also provided in the lobby throughout the day. We requested a later check-out but the front desk only gave us an extra 30 minutes for one of the few rooms we booked. Considering it was the middle of the week, we were hoping for a later check-out.

Good Getaway

Great location, friendly . accommodating valets though parking $15. Pool small but a plus for the kid for sure! Room was nice and big, comfy, clean. Bathroom vent wasn't working but didn't bother to complain; I'm sure they would have been right on it! Courteous, friendly service. Would recommend!

excellent location

Located in the Old Port within walking distance to most of downtown Portland's restaurants and pubs this was an excellent place to spend a weekend relaxing, eating, and drinking. Small indoor pool with windows at street level felt a little weird but I wasn't there for swimming. Our non-ocean-view-room still had a decent view of the harbor which was bonus. The staff was friendly and knoweledgeable of the area. Sloan at the hotel bar was awesome.
