"Comfortable visit"
Suites are comfortable, service is excellent, everything works correctly. It's a short walk to the waterfront sites and businesses.

"Very clean and easy checkin"
The hotel was very easy to find and the check in was seamless. The room had a nice kitchen but we were only staying for one night so we never got to use it. The bathroom was very clean and the bed was very comfortable with ample pillows. When we booked the hotel, we knew it wasn't as close to some of the downtown restaurants and shops, but we still liked it. It was very quiet and we never heard any of the other guests there. I would recommend for a longer stay since it has the kitchen. If you want to be in the middle of downtown, you might want to find a hotel closer to the waterfront attractions.

"Great location, beautiful view on sea side."
All in all no complaints at all. Great location, beautiful view although extra cost for seaview, but worth it for us. Clean, comfortable rooms. The only downside for us and some may think this is small, is the coffee is horrible! Suggest a new brand.

"Pricey hotel but typical high Marriott Standards"
Pricey I say because the waterfront is not exactly a waterfront, very convenient if you are catching a ferry as it is right next to the hotel.

"Comfortable not deluxe"
The hotel is clean, pleasant and functional. Pool area is unattractive. Our room was spacious and comfortable but not luxurious. Towels and soaps were so-so. Water view was over warehouses. Despite these criticisms, the experience overall was very good. We will stay there again.

"Nice hotel, good location, very friendly staff"
the hotel is nice. nothing amazing or special but pleasing. room was pretty clean when we got it. even though we ordered the room for 2 adults and 2 kids, the beds for the kids were not made up and we had no only to set it all up by ourselves but also when we called house keeping for an extra blanket, TWICE, it arrived way after they were already sleeping (about hour and a half after the first call....)

"Good value!"
We were able to check in before noon, and they allowed us to park our car in the garage for 2 days. My husband even had the complimentary breakfast buffet when he checked in!. This is not a continental breakfast! It included fresh fruit, oatmeal, cold cereals, waffle maker, eggs, home fries, sausage, boiled eggs, muffins, etc. Definitely a good value for travelers! I loved our corner room layout, and if we had more time, I'm sure the kitchen would be in use, but then again, with so many great places to go out in Old Port, it would be hard to eat for dinner rather than go out in town!!!

Service was fine, and the morning complementary breakfast was far more than I anticipated! My only disappointment was after spending well over $300. per night, I would have hoped for a harbor view, rather than an inner courtyard view of the building next to us. Also, the layout/design of our room left no privacy for one to use the bathroom sink area (no door or wall separation). Also, no hotel-stocked pay-as-you-use bar/snacks in fridge (minor issue).

"Great Location & Good Facilities"
We stayed here over Labor Day weekend, and were happy with it. The hotel is right off Commercial, so it is close to all the activities. We also liked having easy access to the ferry terminal since we wanted to visit Peaks Island. As for the hotel itself, I've always liked Residence Inn's room size and full kitchen. This one is similar to others we have visited. Staff were friendly and quick to help when called on. Room cleanliness was fantastic; no problems at all. It seemed like the hotel was nearly full, but we didn't have any issues with quiet at night. Excellent, since I'm a light sleeper! Exercise room and pool were adequate, although if you like to run there are a couple nice routes in town that will be more interesting than the treadmills. I'm knocking a star off my rating due to the construction happening in the pool area, even though I understand that these types of things must be done. Also, the parking situation is a little awkward, with the ramp being nearly full on some nights. I do understand that parking in this area of town is difficult in general, though. Overall a good place to stay.

"A great stay in Portland"
I stay at Resident Inn's often. The Portland Resident Inn is the nicest by far. Located just a few blocks from the happenings along the water, it was the perfect location to see the sights, yet not have the noise at night. Kudos to George at the front desk for his recommendations for dinner and lunch

"Chosen for Pet Friendliness, Lacking in other ways"
I specifically chose this hotel for its pet policy. They were EXTREMELY welcoming to my small dog,VERY nice people working the desk. Room was spacious & clean but having a pet, we were stuck on the second floor, so my OCEAN VIEW was a view of the warehouse across the street- EXTREMELY disappointing. Hotel is well appointed, the pool was large but there were towels strewn everywhere by 7pm. Nice shuttle service but the driver was older, didnt talk & had no recommendations to us weary travelers where we might find dinner at a place that allowed dogs. The young guy at the desk was much more helpful, providing a map and circling choices for us. We were promised free hot breakfast in the mornings but due to a huge flood the night before, there were only super carb rich, cold items offered in lobby. Kids were happy w/the sugary treats but as a person who eats more sensibly, I was not. Due to the flood, the first floor was under renovations and they left the door to the street open all day which seemed pretty negligent since Portland is crawling w/homeless & deranged looking people all over the place w/cardboard signs begging for help. Hotel is at the very end of the nice strip by the waterfront, its not in the bustling chic part, its set off near a huge creepy parking garage-sketchy at night. Their pet fee was double that of other places and room rate of $400 was VASTLY overpriced for a warehouse view and NOTHING at all special. Its a $200 place at best:(

"Didn't expect the families"
It was a good stay – here's a few things that I didn't expect... - as a "residence" suite, there were a LOT more families than I was anticipating. I should have known that. - being next to the port means that it smells like seagull excrement ALL THE TIME. - "free" breakfast doesn't mean it's great. I'd say edible at best. For what it costs, it was a bit over rated.

"Want to live there..."
Hotel was more than what we expected. I knew the room had a kitchette type set up, but this was beyond that. Very well set up room with more than what we would need for an extended stay. Staff was very friendly and the dinner buffet was an unexpected pleasure. We stayed at another hotel then next night in another city during our vacation and were disappointed after the great experience that we had at this hotel. It was nice to also have pool hours open early and a little later so that we had time to take advantage of the facility.

My husband and I went to the Residence Inn for my birthday weekend. We frequently visit Portland, but usually stay outside the Old Port for more economical accommodations. Given it was my birthday (and that we found a great rate on hotels.com) we decided to splurge this time. We were very happy with the accomodations. The room was clean, comfortable bed, and had a full kitchenette which was very useful. The hotel is just a short walk to all our favorite places to eat, drink, and shop. We will definitely go back!

"Friendly staff, large room, affordable"
I stayed here for one night and I'd never stayed at a residence inn. Now I know if I'm traveling for a long period of time (more than a couple nights), I'll look to stay in one. The small kitchen is so great if you want to prepare your own food or use the fridge. The room was really large and comfortable. It was quiet too. Def would stay here again or one of their other locations.

"Not bad, but..."
Check-in was OK. Room was one of the Suites facing the "ocean". Actually, facing a telephone pole, a fish processing plant, and a few more buildings before seeing the "ocean" was more like it. Room was nice, bed was comfy, but could hear the bathroom in the 5th floor flush. Conti breakfast was decent. The exercise room was pretty nice, a few ellipticals, treadmills, and free-weights! Pool and hot tub were also nice. Paid over $200 for one night stay, plus another (separate) fee for parking??? Really? Not again...

We paid extra to have en "ocean view." What we got was an electrical transformer right in our window and almost no real view of the ocean. It was deceptive at best and just downright sleazy at worst. What a rip off. If I hadn't paid extra for the view it wouldn't be a big deal, but they know that room has no ocean view and still did it. Contacted Marriott and they could care less...

We stay in Portland every Christmas night, which is a welcome reprieve from family holiday drama. The Residence Inn was great. We ended up hosting my 10 year old nieces for movie night, and found special touches like a pull out couch and microwave popcorn a grade A touch. Good location, quiet room, and a nice view of the ocean.
