I booked my reservation for the wrong city through hotels.com. Hotels.com could not help me but the Marriott residence Inn staff helped me to be cancel the reservation at no charge they went way out of their way and I am forever indebted.

Easy access from the highway. Close to the main attractions in downtown, the water front, and funky neighborhoods in the other direction. Right next to a trail where you can take pets for a walk. Very nice place, highly recommend!

Had a great stay. Great location near waterfront in downtown Portland. Nice clean and quiet rooms. Great breakfast! Parking in a nearby indoor facility there is a charge. They do not do the evening snacks like other Marriott Residence Inns. Have coffee and water always available in lobby.

We had an excellent stay, it was refreshing to stay in a room that was truly clean and comfortable! The check-in process was exceptionally smooth. The location is great, not in the heart of Old Port but everything is well within walking distance.

A friend and I stayed overnight recently, in a spacious, spotlessly clean, very comfortable room on the 5 th. floor of this outstanding property. From the moment we entered, Matt, the G.M., Molly, the Front Desk Supervisor, and the entire staff, from housekeeping to breakfast attendants could not have been more friendly or helpful. The location can't be beat, and...

I usually find myself gushing over the excellent stays I have at Marriot hotels, but can honestly only give this experience a mediocre rating. We booked the Residence Inn for a spur of the moment trip to Portland, and, since family was visiting, we looked for a hotel with suites in the downtown area. The location is very convenient for...

A very inviting place to stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was very clean. The view is of Casco Bay where cruise ships and ferries travel in and out. Hotel is convenient to walking the Old Port with its many restaurants, shops and bars. I can't wait to go back!

Was in town for a quick trip for a wine meeting and some great food at Demillo's. First stay at this location and was not disappointed in any way. Very friendly helpful staff. Place was clean.

Pet friendly, includes a very nice breakfast buffet, rooms are clean and roomy. All suites...we stayed in a studio, and it was plenty big enough. Two blocks from the old Port. Very walkable area to lots of restaurants and shopping. But, the WiFi was terrible, and the mattress was very hard and uncomfortable for me. Still, I would stay here...
