Convenient Old Port location
Small rooms
The Portland Harbor Hotel's unbeatable location and attentive staff received major kudos from recent guests. The property sits in the city's Old Port neighborhood, an area lined with cobblestone streets and 19th-century warehouses. In addition to its charming aesthetics, Old Port is also home to a bevy of restaurants, boutiques and art galleries. If you're in the mood to explore, make use of the hotel's complimentary bicycles – a recommendation from past lodgers. And though you'll be surrounded by plenty of top-notch restaurants, consider dining at the on-site eatery, Eve's at the Garden, which visitors said is a solid choice for happy hour. Reviews for the accommodations were a bit more mixed: Some said their digs were clean and comfortable, while others lamented their small size and recommended booking a room that doesn't overlook the street to avoid disruptive neighborhood noise. Wherever your room is located, you'll find it outfitted with a large soaking tub and glass-enclosed shower, feather pillows and complimentary Wi-Fi access. The Portland Harbor Hotel also offers a small fitness center, complimentary Starbucks coffee on each floor and in the lobby, and complimentary transportation to downtown restaurants and attractions.

  • Frommer's Very Highly Recommended



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.



This property has a 19th-century feel but with modern-day amenities and comforts. Enjoy the greenery on the lovely patio and the relaxing fire pit. The hotel's plush guest rooms and upscale touches appeal to both business and leisure travelers.
