    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.

We stopped at the famous Ipswich clambox and gawped at the length of the queue! Safe to say we hung around long enough for the photo op! However, longer still was the queue of cars to get into Ogunquit. We had Maine lobster, which was yummy (you get a plate, a lobster, a pot of ...

But quitting smoking does tend to make you gain weight, then add the maple syrup and banok. Yes, I think I’ll have to do some shopping before I get back to work ……… I can already feel “vacation” in my pants! Oh, that doesn’t sound right!!!! ...

    We were up late last night watching one of Chris' dumb movies - Inside Llewyn Davis - it was horrible - don't watch it! With the late night and it being dark outside we didn't get up til 9:30. It was like pea soup outside with dark clouds and fog. It cleared a bit around noon so we hopped in the car and headed to Dover, ...

    ... down the streets, window shopping and people watching. We saw what looked like a small, cute memorial site. Given it had just been Memorial Day, we assumed it had something to do with that. It was us and one other human. The other human, an older gentleman, stood very still staring at the monument leaning on a massive stick (weird cane?), no doubtedly paying his respects. Yes, we may have said something untoward about him ...
