Hi Loreen R, Thank you for choosing our hotel once again for your winter break. I am very sorry you and your family did not have a great mid week swim partly due to our ongoing renovations and mainly due to the temperature in our pool. I know this was quite disappointing for you and your family as we always aim for dependable value when guests stay with us. I'll make sure to share your comments with our team for improvements. Despite the setbacks, I hope that you would still consider staying with us again on your next break. Mike F. Case Manager IHGService

Yes, I've stayed here before, but I'm not a frequent traveler to this hotel. That said, my wife and I checked in with a new desk clerk (he said that he only recently started). He was fast, and friendly. But Richard, who was on the other end of the desk acknowledged us having

Good hotel experience in downtown Portland. Clean and comfortable room. Close walk to the Old Port, 1 block to the Portland Museum of Art, Starbucks and shops. Restaurant and bar on site. Fast free wifi. Only issue is the parking. Rather tight if you can find a place

Call the hotel when you land at the airport and let them know you'd like to have the shuttle pick you up. The shuttle drivers are pretty much on call most of the day and part of the night but not around the clock. They are very courteous and helpful and will do their best to accommodate your plans.

I stayed there 4 weeks ago. The shuttle is not 24 hours but they start very early and the airport is tiny. I didn’t believe them when they said security is never busy and at 6 am it wasn’t. You should be good to go if you have an early flight. Note that flight crews stay there so reserve your seat EARLY.
