Near baseball, concert venues and easy drive to town. Nice rooms. Nice staff. Hot tub Aweful.
People at the front desk and in housekeeping were very friendly, helpful and accommodating I had a late check out bc of a race I ran that morning. So I was taking a nap before I left with the do not disturb sign hung on the door. Housekeeping did knock and awoke me even though I was notified that housekeeping was aware of my checkinv out late. Besides that everything was great!
Location was great, right off I-295, and minutes from where I wanted to be in the morning. Room was clean. It has a restaurant inside which was convenient. Food (bowl of soup) was OK. Water temperature in shower was extremely hot; I nearly scalded my back when going to turn off water. Also, there were (unused?) hand towels in tub. Did they just fall, or were they left by previous guest?
The location near the train station made this hotel convenient.. Staff was friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast was solid. Hotel was full of guests, it seems the staff was having a bit of hard time keep up with day to day upkeep. The hallways needed a vacuuming for instance.
Friendly staff Needs some updating
Hotel was clean, convenient to downtown, plenty of parking Front desk was very uninterested-did not even make eye contact upon check in, and restaurant is actually the worst I've ever had in a hotel. This place has potential but needs a little love.
The hotel was clean the staff seemed friendly enough. They had coffee, tea and cookies in the entrance which was nice. I really liked the size of the room and that it had a mini refrigerator which was extremely helpful for me. The hot water for the shower in my room was not working however I was only there for a half marathon so I didn't bother calling for help at the front desk since I was about to checkout and run a long distance. I'm sure they would have helped if I called about the issue
the friendly staff The mold on the bathroom ceiling and walls.
clean, comfortable, close to where I needed to be. Food was very good.
Good food, comfi bed Bathroom wasn't clean
Perfect location in downtown Portland - a very short walk to the wharf and local restaurants/pubs A bit pricy, but it's in line with other hotels in the area.
Great location. Walking distance to the old port and lots of restaurants and bars. A great stay.
location would have enjoyed a fridge and coffee maker in room
I liked the historical nature of the building, and the architectural details. I found the hotel to be big on comfort, cleanliness, and friendly and helpful staff. Loved the complimentary coffee delivered to your room in the morning, much nicer than having to make substandard coffee in the room. The Mill St. restaurant on the premises has wonderful food and a lovely ambience. I didn't take advantage of any of the spa offerings, so I can't comment on those. It would be helpful for rooms to have a small fridge. The lighting in my room was not great for reading, but the huge windows let in a lot of natural light. The internet was painfully slow. I didn't understand the need for the valet parking, since the lot was just across the street, and I would have happily parked on my own and walked over. But it was inexpensive, $12, so this is not really a complaint, just an observation.
All of the staff - from valets to room service, desk clerks to lounge staff, housekeeping to spa staff - were friendly, knowledgeable, professional
I am a female and was travelling alone to see my son. I got my room and from then on, felt comfortable, secure, close to conveniences and within walking distance to great shops, restaurants and more. I was also given the gift of a spa treatment while there, and that experience was heavenly! The dining room was decorated for Christmas and was absolutely lovely! I was also quite comfortable eating alone here, with a seat by a warming fire. I will be returning to Portland shortly, and would like my same room and experience. Loved it.
I loved the location and the hotel/room was very clean. There was a continuous noise above the bed. It sounded like a pipe clanging. Thank goodness for the sound machine feature on the alarm clock. Also, the bed was very firm with starchy sheets. The terry cloth robe had a large rip in it as well.
The room service staff and valet were super friendly and extremely helpful. Other than that, it was a horrible experience...not a bit relaxing! I work in the hospitality industry, so I know what great service is. When I got there, the TV wasn't even plugged in...then I went out with some friends, came back to a dark room, and when I tried to turn on the lamps on the side tables, I found that neither of them were plugged in. It was as if the room hadn't been used in months! When I called the front desk to complain, the woman at the front desk blew it off like it was no big deal! I ordered room service at 8:30 in the morning (which was great) and then put the do not disturb sign on the door. Well evidently it was irrelevant...I had fallen back asleep after I ate my breakfast, then at 10:30 I got a call from housekeeping seeing if I was still there...she didn't even apologize for waking me up, but at 11 I got a knock on my door from housekeeping! Check out was at 12, and I felt very rushed! For the money I spent, it was a horrible experience! I will never go back, and I will spread the word about my awful experience.
Great location. The spa was good. Our room was on the first floor and it sounded as though every toilet in the building was directly above us.
Everyone at the hotel was so nice and went above and beyond to be helpful. The location is perfect right in the center of the city. There are so many great restaurants just around the corner. I also really enjoyed the spa at the hotel. The facilities are very relaxing and everyone that works there can help you figure out exactly what you need. We had a great stay and will definitely be coming back.
The bathroom door in 346 does not close easily.
Overall experience was enjoyable. We only stayed one night due to other travel plans, but would definitely recommend this hotel to others and would stay there again.
The very close location to the airport. Good food and lobby area. Easy access to the business center. No complaints.
Small and friendly, close to airport and Mall.
It is always comfortable. Staff is outstanding. Food is good. Omelets at complimentary breakfast are excellent. Convenient location.
The open large lobby/rooms, the happy hour, of course the breakfast! We have just assumed your hotel is our destination from now on. We've been staying there when we come up from Cape Cod to visit w/our Grandaughters! They have a ball in the pool and just love visiting w/us at The Hotel!
tub in room 525 did not drain.
The service of the gentleman when I arrived at midnight exhausted from a long trip overseas was excelllent. He picked me up at the airport and made sure I got to my room safely. Thank you
gute Lage, geräumiges Zimmer, angenehme Atmosphäre, gute Ausstattung, freundliches Personal Klimaanlage hat selbst im abgeschalteten Zustand störende Geräusche von sich gegeben
Nähe zum Hafen und netten Lokalen 2 Zimmer über booking.com reserviert aber nur ein Zimmer vor Ort vorhanden... Personal erwies sich nicht als sehr serviceorientiert!
Overall the room was great. It was very clean and the staff was nice. The walls however are very thin and we could hear our neighbors that kept us up through the night.
Most everything. Fun to have Starbucks right there and the Mall across the street. Toilet clogged before retiring and we were too tired to call the front desk. It made the morning unpleasant to have a clogged toilet. I'm sure they would have fixed it right away but we were only there for the night and checked out early. That's our only complaint.
