Convenient and courteous, with sleek design touches

The lobby of the Hampton Inn Portland Downtown – Waterfront has a large sitting area that includes both cozy sofas on which to lounge and contemporary tables at which to work. On the walls, black-and-white photographs evoking New England contrast bright, colorful post-modern paintings. The small wood-burning stove in the middle of the room introduces a classic element to the modern space.

This Hampton Inn makes things convenient and accessible for guests: there's free coffee, tea, green apples, and USA Today newspapers available all day, and phones placed strategically throughout the hotel have signs reading, “Lift receiver for guest assistance.” With a 24-hour business center, 950 square feet of meeting space, and a downtown Portland location, the hotel is more than suitable for business travelers, but its other amenities and large, contemporary rooms make it equally attractive to tourists.


In downtown Portland’s Old Port district, convenient to shops, restaurants, and more

The Hampton Inn Portland Downtown – Waterfront is located in the Old Port district. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, galleries, and museums to explore while strolling along the cobblestone streets for which the district is famous. Its downtown location is also near many business and corporate offices, making it convenient to business and leisure travelers alike. Casco Bay is a few blocks away and the waterfront is visible from many of the hotel rooms.


Large, contemporary rooms with microwaves and mini-fridges

The rooms at the Hampton Inn Portland Downtown – Waterfront are large and contemporary, with tile entranceways and large, clean bathrooms. The dark wood furniture and red, black, and brown carpet give rooms a sleek, modern (if generic) feel. The bathrooms have tubs, marble countertops, and come stocked with Neutrogena products. Rooms have coffeemakers, flat-screen TVs, microwaves and mini-fridges. The black-and-white photo next to each room number and lap-desk in every room are two examples of the little additions that make this Hampton Inn a step above most chains. Some rooms have views of the water. Those with smoke allergies should note that smoking rooms are available, so it's important to specify your preference at the time of booking.


24-hour conveniences and a restaurant on-site

The Hampton Inn Portland Downtown – Waterfront is filled with conveniences. The fitness center is open 24/7 and includes a number of newer-looking cardio machines and free weights. The indoor pool is not very large, but the slatted wood ceiling and soft lighting give it a serene feel. The Suite Shop convenience store has snacks and toiletries 24/7. In addition, unlike many hotels of its caliber, there is the Sebago Brewpub restaurant on the first floor serving lunch, dinner (including burgers, bar snacks, entrees, and craft beers), and late-night snacks seven days a week. Guests at the Hampton Inn also enjoy free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and a free hot breakfast.
