Portland is the largest and most diverse city in Maine. If you’ve never been to the great state of Maine, you’re missing out. If you come, you better make sure Portland is on your itinerary. There is just too much to see, do, and eat not to check it out. With a population of just over 65,000 residents…there are rumors that Portland has more restaurants per capita than San Francisco (boasting a population over 830,000). Seriously, the food is wicked good here. After you figure out where to eat, you need to think about where to stay. If you want a little bit of luxury, an incredible view of the Portland skyline, and easy access to some downtown Portland fun, you should book your room at Hyatt Place Portland. It will not disappoint.
Located in the epicenter of the Old Port, Hyatt Place Portland overlooks Casco Bay and city views, where a short walk is all that’s required to take in everything Portland offers. But before you start to explore the cobbled streets, craft beer breweries, food festivals, art and science museums, and working waterfront…you’ll want to check in to your room. Let the valet park the car and stroll through the lobby doors. You’ll be greeted with a warm welcome and smile surrounded by a more modern decor. The lobby windows showcase Portland’s typical brick faced buildings and reminds you adventure awaits when you step back outside. After a quick check-in, you’ll be on your way to your room. And, yes, you’ll be impressed.
With all the conveniences you’ve come to expect in a nice hotel room, including extra towels, a coffee and tea maker, and a fridge…it also comes with things you wouldn’t expect, but will love.
The HoMedics SoundSpa beside the bed, the complimentary ear plugs, oh, and THE VIEW.
Seriously. THE VIEW.
Having a door open onto our very own, private patio (on the 7th floor) was amazing. Being able to see the city skyline lit up at night and the busy waterfront during the day from our perch was a total treat. The pair of lounging chairs (with some amazing fabric that repels water and stays dry despite torrential rains) and a small table was perfect for us to enjoy a cup or two of coffee, soaking in the view.
We came up with all sorts of things to do for the next day just by over-looking downtown Portland; and all of it was within walking distance. Of course, we enjoyed dinner at the iconic floating restaurant, DiMillo’s, and then slept in this luxurious bed.
After a comfortable and cozy sleep, we woke rested and ready for breakfast.
Whatever your wish; eggs, bagels, french toast, yogurt, fresh fruit, cereal…it’s available with your choice of milk, juice, or coffee (or all 3). You will be ready to start the day!
We spent the morning taking in some sights and the staff at Hyatt Place Portland was incredibly helpful. Not only was a late check out no big deal, they gladly kept our belongings and our car valet parked until late in the afternoon to accommodate our schedule!
