So left work at 3 for my 530 flight into Portland, ME on Friday, 9/2. Never been there before and really have no idea what I'm doing here. Trip got off to a weird start when the 530 flight actually deplaned and we didn't leave until after 7. Anyway, I think we got off the plane a little before 9. I picked up some maps at Portland's airport and …
After another lovely breakfast overlooking the river, our plan was to travel over to Portland driving through the White Mountains taking in any final New Hampshire scenery before hitting Maine. Annabelle was in the driving seat today so it was a risk – luckily we ended up in Maine but it could just as easily have been Canada. We headed to …
Yesterday I had a meeting with some of the staff with hour exchange Portland (HEP) they are in a state of transition as they move from a heavily funded model with several paid staff to two part time workers running the organisation on 20hrs a week combined. It's a hard time for them and they are still finding their feet about how to its going to work out. As with all the people I've met in Portland the staff ...
... Carol used the service, posted her plea for help digging out her car and within 30mins someone who lived nearby came and dug out her car. Simple. It's my belief that ultimately people want to help others, and if they knew someone was in need down the street they would help them. It reminded me of some research into youth volunteering that was published a few years back. When surveyed young people stated that the ...

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.
