Schöne Aussicht auf die Bucht

Posted 16-Jun-2015
Pros: Zimmer-Aussicht, günstige Parkmöglichkeit im eigenen Parkhaus ($10/Nacht)
Location: Portland Observatory, Spaziergang über die Eastern Promenade, toller Whole Foods (Bio-Supermarkt)
Das Hotel ist von aussen betrachtet leider wenig schön - es passt auch irgendwie so gar nicht in die Gegend. Die Zimmer sind geräumig, haben eine große Fensterfront und in unserem Fall bietet sich eine Aussicht auf die Bucht. Portland ist ein wirklich süßer Ort mit einem eher jüngeren Publikum, es gibt viele tolle Restaurants. Ein Besuch des Portland Observatory ist eigentlich Pflicht, hier erfährt man viel über die Geschichte des Ortes und hat dabei noch eine schöne Aussicht auf den Hafen, die Stadt und die Bucht.

In-room smoking policy surprised me

Posted 18-May-2015
Cons: Convert to a non-smoking policy anywhere in the hotel
I am a non-smoker, but ended up with a smoking room because there were no other rooms left. I truly thought in Maine that no hotels allowed smoking in rooms any longer and I feel this would be a good policy of the Holiday Inn to consider. Clearly the smokers that stayed in the room were reckless and ignorant. There were burn marks all over the carpeting, on the furniture and even in the bathtub on the soap tray. Not the hotel's fault which is why I rated the overall experience high. But I have to say that it was very unpleasant and the entire floor smelled of smoke even though some of the rooms were non-smoking. The management tried their best to get me into a non-smoking room, but the hotel was booked to capacity. The restaurant had a great breakfast and the hotel bar was comfortable and both had pleasant staff. Parking was easy and convenient for a $10 fee.

We have stayed at this hotel every time we come up to Portland ME from Connecticut. It is a convenient walk to every store, restaurant, and bar we visit in town and it's a quick drive to beautiful beaches and communities in the area.

Great location in Portland

Posted 29-Apr-2015
Pros: Close to activities and restaurants, yet quiet.
Cons: Swimming pool area
We stayed over the Memorial weekend and were happy with our choice. The hotel is in good shape and pleasantly decorated. Only critique is on the swimming pool area. A little tired and no Jacuzzi. Parking either at the hotel, or alternatively in next doors parking decks. Easy walk to the centre of Portland. All in all perfect for a weekend away.

Nice hotel close to downtown with view of the Bay

Posted 28-Mar-2015
Convenient hotel near museums and shops downtown. Courteous, helpful staff. Terrific restaurant, with healthy and delicious menu choices, including Maine favorites, and low carb and veggie goodies.

Nice hotel close to everything.

Staff is particularly accommodating. We visited in the dead of winter and the hotel shuttle picked us up and dropped us off everywhere so getting around could not have been easier.

Very Nice Accommodations

Posted 19-Feb-2015 on Hotels
When traveling in Northern Maine I find it difficult to always find great accommodations. I usually end up traveling back towards the south and grab someplace along the way. This Portland hotel was a great find, it had everything I needed and was easy to get in and out of. I will use this location again while traveling up north.

Holiday Inn perfectly fine

Posted 9-Feb-2015
Pros: Location, nice view of Casco Bay, French roast coffee, TV, and hairdryer in the room which was very clean.
Cons: My friend complained that the bed was soft, but I thought it was fine. Maybe a few bottles of complimentary water would be a nice touch.
Location: Great restaurants and shops. We also went to the movies which is nearby. The weather prevented a walk along the harbor, but next time.
One night, worked out great. Good price. Walked into town easily. Friendly folks. Nice French roast coffee in the room!
