    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 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.

    Great Service


    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).

    Very disappointed


    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

    Nice hotel


    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.

    ... then it has gotten progressively better as we traveled south. I can't explain this but the trees were not changing in Canada except near the border. As we get further into Maine it has been more colorful. I didn't download the pictures from the camera before it went back with CW. So I missed the pictures of Kip and the few I took of Acadia. Carolyn flys out early so we say our goodbyes. It has been a few quicks weeks making our own memories. I'm lonely already. 179 ...

The maple barn is always a favorite because you can see the whole maple process unfold. The last thing on the path before the campground is an old farm equipment exhibit.

The good thing is, parking meters are free in Portland after 6:00PM, so if you’re lucky enough to get a spot downtown or don’t mind parking a small distance away and walking, plan on paying a dollar or less for parking!

    Intro to Tour

    Hadlock Field in Portland Maine is where I chose to take a trip to. As you enter Portland it is hard to miss Hadlock field, home of the Portland Seadogs. The lights can be seen from blocks away and while driving by the big slugger mascot is perched in front of the famous stadium. There is a large selection of parking surrounding the stadium. The parking is around ...
