The Hilton Garden Inn scores points for families visiting Portland because of its great location, heated indoor pool, on-site grill and free airport shuttle. Located in the Old Port overlooking Portland Harbor, the hotel is within walking distance to shops and sightseeing. All rooms have a refrigerator and a microwave, and there is a 24-hour “pantry” that sells drinks, snacks and ready-to-cook meals. The on-site restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and has a children’s menu.

Hotel is clean, beautiful, great breakfast completely included and delicious, gym is good, staff is accommodating. Parking is valet only not included but you walk everywhere anyways and its unlimited in and out. Showers lost hot water for a little bit in the afternoons otherwise would have given 5 stars. This was my second stay at this hotel and I will go back. Pool is small but nice and there isnt a hot tub but who needs one anyways.
I've been traveling weekly from Cleveland to Portland for business since early June. The Hilton Garden Inn has been my home away from home. The staff has made my stay so welcoming and comfortable. They are like my extended family. In addition, the location is great - so much to do from sightseeing to shopping and the dining choices are plentiful. Shout out to the front desk - Geri, Athein, Magdalyn, Kyle, Natalie and Suzanne and to the Food & Beverage team - Sloan and Maggie. You will be in great hands if you stay here.
