Embassy Suites in Portland, Maine

Want to Stay in Style in Portland?
~ The Embassy Suites Is the Place to Be ~
As you know, we just got home recently from our trip to New Hampshire and Maine. The northern parts of New England are gorgeous, and completely surpassed our expectations. Portland, Maine is a beautiful city with rustic brick buildings and nautical character. The downtown shopping area has a quaint little cobblestone section with eclectic shops and upscale restaurants. You can also find more traditional style diners and family-friendly parks. Portland definitely is a place to visit for the family with many things to do and see.
While staying in this wonderful city, I highly recommend you check out the Embassy Suites. This hotel located near the Portland Jetport provides visitors with an easy drive in to the busy city and close to the highway for day excursions. The Embassy Suites is a hotel comprised luxury suites with many amenities and services. Our favorite things about the stay included the quality and clean rooms (all suites at this hotel), the Manager’s Reception at night where you could get complimentary drinks and snacks (5:30-7:30pm), and the full service hot breakfast including cook-to-order omelets (6:30-9:30am weekdays and 7:00-10:30am on weekends). My kids also enjoyed the pool and hot tub, while my husband and I took full advantage of the fitness room. There is a business center and area to buy items if you forgot anything from home as well. This hotel takes care of all your needs!

Our room was a one-bedroom suite with two double beds. We love having the two separate rooms so the kids can go to sleep first while we watch TV in the living area. The room also contained a nice clean bathroom with a large sink area, living room with a pull-out couch, and a kitchen area which included a refrigerator and microwave. The suite was perfect for our family of four. It even offered an office area which I used for my nightly blogging about our trip.

The main lobby area was large and decorated with class. It was a nice area to hang out in, especially when you are grabbing those complimentary drinks and some snacks at the Manager’s Reception. The lobby area led into the hotel’s restaurant, Cafe Stroudwater. This restaurant is available for dinner (5:00pm-10:00pm), and also serves as the area for the hot breakfast in the mornings. The food there is wonderful. 

Remember to visit the Embassy Suites in Portland, Maine when you are taking a trip up north. Whether for business or pleasure, this hotel is affordable for a luxury night’s stay in a suite, and you will have every amenity and service you could need. The bonus manager’s reception and fantastic breakfast are far beyond that of other chain hotels. Your experience here will be super special. This hotel also offers some very special entertainment on Monday nights from 7:00pm-9:30pm, so be sure to check out The Tony Boffa Band in the lobby. 
Information about the hotel and to book your stay can be found on their site. Don’t forget to give your Hilton Honors number while booking to get credit. Other hotel information includes:

    Years ago, the company that hired me in Virginia, put us in the Embassy Suites until we found a place to live. It was so nice. It kind of looks the same from your pictures. They really do a good job making you feel comfortable :)

  33. I have actually wanted to go to Maine for quite some time. The hotel looks amazing and since our family dynamics look to be similar, when I do make it to Maine, I will be sure to look here first for lodging. I am curious if all Embassy Suites are this nice because we do vacation a lot. I might look for them any time I travel, really. Thanks for reviewing this hotel.

  34. I looove staying in hotels, particularly when they are as swanky as The Embassy Suites. Thanks for such a thorough review–I hope to check it out for myself one day!

  35. It is beautiful! Especially being Portland – so pretty!

  39. We love staying at Embassy Suites on vacation. They are great hotels anywhere you go.

  49. Cindy Merrill says:

    I lived in Portland Maine from 1989 until 2001: Unfortunately, money was tight in those days, so I never had the opportunity to treat myself to a stay at Embassy Suites, or anywhere near it on the upscale level.

  50. What a beautiful hotel! Embassy Suites are great. The complimentary drinks in the evenings are great!!

  51. Looks like a beautiful hotel and if I am ever in Portland I will def consider staying there!

  58. Very helpful review, we live in NY and keep saying we’re going to travel back through New England again soon, I would definately stay in this hotel after seeing/reading how nice it is. Portland is an amazing city, so it will be one of our stops when we go. Thank you! barkergirl33@hotmail.com

  59. Looks like a nice place to stay.

  61. Wendy Brassbridge says:

    Nice, looks very inviting :)

  62. There’s an Embassay Suites here in town that we absolutely love! The one you stayed at looks awesome, too.

  63. Embassy Suites are fantastic! Would love to stay in Maine! Great pic & descriptions…helpful to hotel review!!!! A+

  64. I know when I was a child stay at Embassy Suites was a great treat. Their breakfast still looks amazing. The room also look just as nice

  65. i have two free room nights for these guys,but i got to wait till i go somewhere to use them

  66. Looks lovely – I haven’t been to Maine in years, but after reading about your trip I have been thinking about it more lately! :)

  67. We’ve never stayed there. Is a Hilton Brand because we love to stay their.

  68. We stayed at an Embassy Suites while visiting my aunt last year in Raleigh NC. I loved that they had a computer room (with printers) for people to do work on just check their e-mails! Their beds were also very comfty!!! I’m sure you all had better views of the outside with the nice town!

  69. I love Embassy Suites. The rooms are big and comfy and the breakfast is awesome. I always enjoy the Manager’s Cocktail party, too.
    They started out this chain as a business man’s hotel but I think it is perfect for families! Whenever we go to the Orlando area- we always stay at an ES. We save a lot of money on eating out by taking advantage of the breakfast and the mini kitchen.

  70. I also love these hotels, but they’ve done a lot of upgrading since my last stay! The cheeses alone would get me there!

  71. I have never stayed at Embassy Suites, but they sound wonderful. The complimentary breakfast and Manager’s Reception make it an extra good deal! I would love to visit New England sometime. My kids have always wanted beachy vacations. Maybe once they are all grown up lol.

  72. Cool~

  73. Looks like a super nice place to stay! I will keep it in mind if I ever visit the area.

  74. I’ve been to Portland on my way to California and northern Nee England to Maine, The hotels listed are gorgeous and I wish we could have stayed in one of them!

  75. I stayed at an Embassy Suite in Austin Texas and it was amazing! I think my favorite part was the breakfast!

  76. Nice looking hotel,love to stay there one day,and what the hotel has to offer looks great,and the food,two helpings please.

  77. Wow the Embassy Suites look like a home away from home-sounds like a great place to stay while on vacation- if I ever get close to that area I will remember to check it out.

  78. Great hotel – decorated beautifully. Hopefully sometime soon we will have the opportunity to stay in one.

  79. We stayed at an Embassy Suites in Virgina and we enjoyed our stay. They were very polite and the breakfast was delicious. I also recommend them. The funny thing…our room looked just like yours. lol
