Holiday Inn Portland-By the Bay, Portland
Very Good8.0
We had a great stay in Portland. The hotel location is second to none for those looking to go out and enjoy the Old Port or West End. I would like to see an effort made by HI into showcasing the dinning and entertainment in a city that is rated right up there with the best in the US. There was no dinning guide available anywhere outside of asking the very busy front desk attendants. Could start at the very least with a book in the room for guests to refer and contact for reservations.

Nice location and fair price
Just a couple of blocks from the Old Port makes it a great location for shopping and dining. Easy free parking. Very nice staff, who offered complimentary shuttle service within three miles. Nice on a 12 degree night! They are undergoing renovations so there was some jack hammering going on during the day. I hope the renovations include room improvements. Ours was comfortable but pretty tired looking. (old wallpaper, faded art on the walls). Bathroom could use towel upgrades.

Great hotel, but was overcharged
Beautiful hotel, staff was great. But was told the parking was only$10 and would be taken off my $25 deposit. I ended up with a $10 and $15 charges that were never taken off my card. Definitely was deceiving from what I was told the night before we stayed.

The free shuttle services is the best thing a hotel can provide to its guest with a complete map of Portland. You don’t see this in every hotel. Staff was really friendly and suggested the places to visit.
