      Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel Portland

      Disappointed!

      from

      Although the beds were Great!, we had to complain about and be moved from, the first room assigned....the room appeared unvacuumed, the ceiling was a nasty brown color due to water stains and appeared to be crumbling. The second room, 2 doors down was only slightly better, being, at least, fairly clean looking. The hallway off the elevator was littered with unvacuumed debris and the carpet appeared to have been installed by children....it desperatly needed stretching again. The manager on duty and staff, though, listened to my complaints and comped the room, but this hotel did not meet the DoubleTree standard I was expecting!

      Not too bad

      from

      The price was right $57 via Priceline. The beds were by far the most comfortable I have ever slept on during a hotel stay. The room service needed to pick up discarded trays left in hallway alittle more frequently. I saw a group of juvi's get off bicycles and enter pool area. Rooms were typical 3 star. I would stay again.

      Much better than expected

      from

      This hotel was much nicer than I had thought it would be! The new beds are absolutely wonderful -- I think I actually like them better than the Sheraton Sweet Sleeper beds. The hallways are still in need of updating, and the surrounding area is not too exciting -- but the actual rooms are very nice. Of course, the warm cookie at check-in was quite nice as well!

      Satisfied

      from

      I was satisfied with my recent stay at the Portland Doubletree. The room itself was very nice, the bed was very comfortable. The shower was good as well. The only complaints I have is that the bathrooms are a little on the small side and the elevators are slow. The shuttle service was another good feature of the Portland Doubletree. The parking lot is huge, and it is also free.

      Slept so well!

      from

      Excellent hotel. The bed had a new matress and was made with fluffy pillows and a down comforter. Not only was the room spotless, but it was very well decorated. Really enjoyed my stay.

      Great Service

      from

      THe service at the Doubletree was great. I was greeted with a warm cookie and a smile. I stayed in a room with a new bed and the renovation was great. I slept like a baby. The Doubletree was the best priced full service hotel in portland..

      Not bad overall...

      from

      Got this room on Priceline for $66 (3*, Portland downtown-not particularly cheap for Priceline) and was satisfied overall. Room was not very large, but they have put new, very comfortable beds (cushy mattress pad, down comforter, 3 sheets, 5 pillows) in the rooms on floors 4-6. Bathroom is small, but nice. King-bedded rooms have easy chair with ottoman. They brought a mini-fridge to my room upon my request, no extra charge. Free wireless internet (a little tempermental), free local & 800 calls, and free van service will bring you anywhere within 5 miles or so. Rooms & elevator need more updating, but service in hotel is good, and the hotel is quiet (at least the days I was there).

      Very disappointed

      from

      The bed was hard, pillows mushy, the heater was so noisy I had to shut it off for the night in order to sleep and water in the bathroom plumbing trickled and could be heard all night long. The water in the shower could have been hotter also. For the price, $99.00 per night, it definitely was not worth it. I would have gotten a better value staying at Howard Johnson's or Best Western.

      I would definitely not recommend this hotel.

      Decent place to stay

      from

      Great cookies! Clean, uncomfortable bed though. Staff not overly friendly with all the choices in Portland, would not stay again unless price was real good

      Nice hotel

      from

      I booked this hotel on Priceline and got a great rate. The hotel is outside of the city and on the highway, so you have to drive most places, but the facility and service are great.

      ... are staying in is just gorgeous, like something from a movie. The town is like Noosa but thinking fishing village rather than beachside, tiny, posh, bridges, limited parking. And it's frickin' freezing! We checked in, did a quick walk around then went to a hotel on the river for a drink (which was full of cool people). Quite a few lobster places are closed for the season but we'd had a restaurant recommended to us which we went to & we had a great dinner ...

      Driving to maine we decided to open a Disco tech bar with Mashups of modern day pop re-mixed disco. Tvs, led disco ball, and roller skates. Le Disco Tech was born. Visited USM so basil could really re-live his days working the mailroom, and his daily meetups on the smokers bench. And they have Creamsicle colored fire hydrants. Found a little spot to get brunch, The Front room- amazing corned beef ...

      A very busy couple of days

      It's been a busy couple of days. The Giants lost, twice, Addie rescued a baby seal and we covered three states in four hours. Whew.

      But let's backtrack a bit. The morning after the big nor'easter it was still raining, but I could see the edge of the storm when I took Addie out for a walk. It was still windy enough that she didn't even want to go to the beach, so we went back to the cottage for a second cup of coffee and ...

      ... it ended up costing us in lost gambling money anyways. The food was good at the buffet. We drove to the Bay of Fundy Hopewell Rocks which had closed for the season but we were still able to hike in to view the highest tide in the world. Impressive! From there the coastal route along Hwy 114 to Saint John and it was a crummy road under construction. In Saint John we parked at the Walmart overnite ...

      ... your hand against the door looking for the gear stick, or try and put the seatbelt on from the right.  The passenger seat whilst not as intense is also unnerving as it feels you are hanging way over and instinctively it feels as if you should be controlling the vehicle.  The day started bright and early as we set off north from Camden towards Bar Harbor.  We came to a bridge and stopped to enjoy the river views, to discover that one ...
