    Great hotel on waterfront

    It’s in the middle and walking distance to everything in Centre city of Portland. Front desk associates are wonderful and our attendant kept our room spotless. We had a perfect view and a good evening sleep. My husband and I felt very welcome. Will visit again.

    Nice enough, time for a room refresh.

    This hotel has an excellent location in downtown Portland close to all of the activities and dining of downtown. The service was good and the typical Hampton Inn breakfast was reliable. The rooms need to be freshened and the number of outlets and USB ports should be updated to meet today's standard. Other than that, it was a good stay.

    Excellent weekend getaway!!

    Been here many times! Never ever had a bad stay! Creating many memories here! Coming here is like leaving Maine without leaving the state. The hotel is next to the Old Port! Great price and very clean hotel! The restaurant attached is awesome too!

    Wonderful winter weekend in Portland

    We stayed at the Waterfront Hampton Inn for a weekend using hhonors points. The staff at the hotel was terrific. Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable. The complimentary breakfast had a nice variety and good quality - excellent coffee. The hotel does have valet only parking ($20/night), but this is downtown Portland and there really isn't free parking anywhere. The valets were terrific at taking and retrieving our car when we needed. Great location and property. We will definitely visit again.

    Big room, good breakfast!

    Our king bed room was a great size with a big windows overlooking the city. The bathroom was especially large for a hotel and had a huge walk in shower!!! Good bed and great pillows. The breakfast was also good given it was a hotel breakfast. CHOCOLATE WAFFLES, yeah! Muffins, bagels, eggs, potatoes and bacon. The bacon however was paper thin! The valet was less expensive even with a tip than the Residence Inn parking garage. Overall a really good experience.
