We will be using Portland as a base for our short two night three days Maine vacation at the end of this month. So far I like the Portland Regency for about $300 per night. Also available are the Residence Inn Downtown, Hampton Inn Portland downtown for the same price. I prefer not to be near the airport where there are cheaper options. Is the Regency my best bet. Also for the same price would you recommend a hotel within an hour of Portland say from Kennebunkport up that is clearly superior to the Regency.
