The newly renovated Portland Harbor Hotel, Portland’s only AAA Four-Diamond Hotel, is setting itself apart from the many other fine hotels around Portland Maine’s waterfront Old Port district by being committed to providing a welcoming ambiance, delightful extras and an impressive dining experience for guests and visitors alike. Like other fine hotels we have visited including the Hôtel de Paris in Monte Carlo, the Farol Hotel in Cascais, Portugal and Hotel Matilda in San Miguel, Mexico, fine dining is integral to an elevated hotel experience.
Executive Chef Gil Plaster has brought his experience, perfection, and innovation to enliven the dining experience at the BlueFin North Atlantic Seafood restaurant at the Portland Harbor Hotel. Maine dining is foremost synonymous with Lobster and Chef Plaster’s lobster S’cargot, and Portland Harbor lobster popover are just two many innovative options for enjoying this delicacy. Whether he is cooking the freshest local seafood or prime meats at dinner, or preparing decadent lobster rolls for lunch, or rich lobster Benedict for breakfast, Chef Plaster creative cuisine brings a multitude of pleasures to the palette. The chef has also created an array of enriching entrees for those that prefer healthy meal options.
Perfectly located in Portland’s Old Port the Portland Harbor Hotel is just steps away from the bustling waterfront Commercial Street and all of the shops, bars, and dining venues that bring verve and excitement to the Old Port. Unique shops featuring handcrafts, home goods and clothing are all within walking distance from the hotel as are craft breweries, waterside cafes and many fine restaurants. Portland is a wonderful town for walkers and a meandering stroll to the Eastern Promenade will truly add to your appreciation of this interesting town and its mix of modern and traditional architecture.
At the Portland Harbor Hotel, the warm décor in the 101 guestrooms and 16 suites is nautically themed and the rooms are appointed with wood floors colorfully modern furnishing and well-placed finishing touches. There are pantries on every floor and Starbuck coffee machines dispense the perfect morning cup. The Lobby and the hotel’s BlueFin Atlantic Seafood restaurant are styled with a modern New England flair. The spacious and handsome lobbies are delightful spots to enjoy morning meetings and evening cocktails. At one end of the lobby, floor to ceiling windows overlooks Fore Street, a grand and handsome fireplace anchors the opposite side creating a warm and comfortable lounge. Equally welcoming is the bar and fireside seating at Bluefin where guests can unwind and chat. During the warm months outside dining in BlueFin’s beautifully landscaped and romantic courtyard is a memorable respite to a busy day sightseeing or working. The inviting guest rooms and suites are equally comforting and the signature Portland Harbor Hotel beds are the ultimate in-room luxury. Portland Harbor Hotel.
