    I stayed for a wedding. I was able to get early check in to get ready for the wedding. The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was good.

    Clean and neat.

    The first front desk person I spoke to customer service was lacking. I flew in for a family wedding and booked a room for the day of the wedding. The wedding was at 4 pm. I requested early check in the day before the wedding and told her I flew in from out of state. ( also it was a special request when I booked my stay) and her response was matter of fact not to call the day of the wedding until noon as that was when check out was and they would not have a room available until then. I told her that I was aware of the check out time but was aware that a lot of people check out early and don't use the. late check out. She told me I could get ready in their fitness room and that is all she could do. Thankfully when I called the morning of the wedding at 9 am I had a better experience. The peron I spoke to was pleasant and helpful. She held a room for me to check in early for the wedding I was attending. She also shared with me there where 20 rooms ready at the time I called. Such a different experience then the day before.

    the parking deck was full and we had to use the alternate deck located on the opposite side of the hotel--which you either had to walk or drive to get their. You couldn't access it through the hotel and have to leave the main building--so in bad weather it makes it a little inconvienient.

    Hotel was clean, and staff was friendly and helpful with all of my questions. It was a short walk to the old town, and right across the street from the museum.

    The pillows were a little weird, felt like they were stuffed with cotton balls...

    The $20 breakfast vouchers were a bit of a pain to deal with. I would rather just have a continental breakfast included.

    The hotel is modern and clean. The view of the bay from the bedroom was wonderful.

    It is a little way out of the town centre.

    Good location close to the harbour and down-town area, nice rooms.

    We first got a smoking room just next to the elevator instead of a non-smoking room as per the reservation. We finally got what we had booked...

    A very nice hotel a little bit outside the center of Portland, but still near lots of shops and restaurants. It's on a hill so it has nice views of the surrounding areas.

    We were on the tenth floor and the windows were made to not open. It would have been nice to get some of the lovely Portland fresh air into our room.

    We have stayed here before 3 years ago for a family wedding taking place near by. We remebered how close it was to the old port area of town. During the 3 years, they have re-done most of the hotel rooms and we were very pleased. We asked for and paid for a room w/view of bay and very very pleased. They have a indoor pool and workout room as well. It is just a three loong block walk to the old port for shopping and dining on the bay.

    The facility was clean and well kept. The staff was unifirmly helpful and friendly from the front desk, to maid service, to van driver. Much more enjoyable than expected.

    The location was a little out of the way from the main attractions of Protland.

    Easy walk into town. Friendly staff, easy check-in.

    We paid for a sea-view room, but the windows were misted up as if the double glazing had blown. When we asked, we were told the windows were misted from sea spray and needed cleaning. We were told they were cleaned every few weeks, but they couldn't keep on top of it. I am dubious about this as we had two windows side by side, but only the right hand side window was affected!?! Not impressed with that.
