Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel Portland
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
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
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!
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!
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.
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...
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).
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
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
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.

Had a perfect travel day yesterday. Actually got away early, 8:45, and had beautiful cold clear weather all day. It was only once we got close to Portland that we saw any snow at all and there it was only deep in the bush. But shortly after we stopped for the night the snow started. It looks like we got about 3" overnight. Luckily we're heading south! Had great Chinese food last night. Who knew we'd find it in Maine! Here's what morning looked like - winter ...
New Years Eve was a lovely day, travelling down the coast, with the aim of arriving in Boston early evening. We visited Kennebunkport and a neighbouring village, both very cute little seaside towns, lots of money evident there. Kennebunkport is where Clinton has a house, so you can imagine!
Note to selves: when returning to Boston, on New Years Eve, and your hotel is on the Times Square of Boston, it is not the best idea to try to drive to the ...
... There were cute little houses everywhere too. We saw a very cool abandoned railway that we had fun taking photos of.... it was very cold so we were basically jumping out of the car, taking photos and then jumping back in the car! After finding Fryeburg we drove on to Conway, just to see more snowy areas. It was just this lovely day driving around the gorgeous countryside and then returning to Portland..... where we had tea on a restaurant inside ...
... FICTIONAL book, the woman kept questioning the poor guide re the book and why rooms were in the wrong place and querying the integrity of her high school English teacher. At different times in the tour the guide asked if we had any questions and we all cringed as we knew who had all the questions.... intermingled into her questions were her attempts to demonstrate her in depth knowledge of the history of the area, which felt more like an attempt to trip the ...
... for the next leg of our trip, heading up to Maine.
I had planned to explore the Mid-Cape towns on the way out Friday, but stopped first in Orleans to refill a prescription at the local Rite-Aid. While waiting for that I decided to head down to the beach to explore a bit. Addie was running ahead of me and approached what I thought was a log, but by her reaction (sniff...OMG IT MOVED!!!) I realized it was a seal, beached ...
