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.

... Can you imagine trying that in Saskatchewan? Lol! 4 new states for us today: New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine! We also drove through the Appalachian Mountains, they are nothing like the Rockies, more like big tree covered hills. The only rock you see is where the road was cut. Taking pictures as you barrel down the Interstate at 125 km is futile, ...

Today we took our time and made our way from Bar Harbor to Portland. Well, it's been an awesome vacation, but it has to come to an end sometime. I'm catching a flight home from Portland to Milwaukee tomorrow; Phil, Jeff, and Marieta are going to brave the elements and get the bikes home. We covered 1,754 ...

The music and crowd were great!! Tomorrow night it's a meet and greet at Louie B's in Southwick MA. Looking forward to riding in the sunshine and warm ...
... pistachio caramel tart!
We visited the Portland Observatory, learning that it has nothing to do with stars and everything to do with early maritime commerce. Built on Munjoy Hill in 1807 by an early entrepreneur, the Observatory was used to track the port's shipping activity. The tour offered historic background and a 360-degree view of Portland and Casco Bay.
And then, it was our last full day in Portland. Sigh. . .

... Toss it with mayo or drizzle it with browned butter or carefully browned butter. Serve it on a hot dog bun or a warm, steamed bun. Kick it up a notch and serve it as a lobster BLT: oh, the bacon is amazing, but that was down the road a bit! So wait for that review.
Our first lobstah roll was consumed (inhaled) at The Lobster Shack at Cape Elizabeth. Oh my, yes it was wonderful and sweet and ...
