Not as expected
Overall, the hotel has an excellent presence from the outside and in the common areas. Location in downtown Portland is superb. The valet, Rupert, was welcoming and accommodating, couldn’t have been kinder or more professional. Front desk check in & out was appropriately welcoming and professional; however when I told the front desk the bedside lamp wasn’t working, I was told “sometimes wall switches control the lamps”! I’m over 60years old and certainly attempted to seek out the reason for malfunction before reporting it; in the end, my reporting was ignored and I had no bedside lamp for the remainder of my stay. Restaurant staff was professional and the breakfast food tasteful. Room service was professional. ‘Free bottled water’ is advertised, first 2 bottles were in frig, any others were eventually found in a cooler in the entryway. The room was not impeccably cleaned. Baseboards, corners, rod, and some sort of product splashed and left on the bathroom door (which doubled as the closet door) was a bit grotesque and made one wonder about over all cleaning practices. The bathtub was chipped, ceiling over it stained, and a toilet fixture rusty. I have seen worse, when on a road trip out West 30 years ago, and we found ourselves having to take the only accommodation available after a long day of travel. That room was $29. The lacking in this hotel stay was disappointing, but couldn’t entirely ruin my experience in Maine simply because I didn’t stay there all my days.

work in progress
nice room, great staff. With a little work can be exceptional. No slippers in room. No coffer make of any kind. Expresso not available in hotel till 4 PM. Motel 6 is better than that. CARPET lobby can stand a cleaning. Pretty pricey food.
