    I stayed here with my girlfriend (now wife) about ten years ago. We had been hanging out around Portland all day. We took a cruise out to Peaks Island we found an excellent sushi place. After all that we didn't have a place to stay. Fortunately in Portland most of the hotels are clustered together. We didn't have a problem getting a room at the Holiday Inn without a reservation. They have free parking and the rooms are quite sumptuous. We sat up that night drinking wine and watching "The Legend of Bagger Vance" on cable.

    I have stayed here about 4 times on my business trips to Portland Maine. It is very convenient as its only about 2 blocks walk to the center of town where the restaurants and bars are. Another thing I like about it is that has a garage you can park and no charge to park your car overnight. Portland downtown is lively on Thurs and Friday nights as I have stopped over many times to have a good seafood / steak and to grab a drink. This hotel is convenient and I would highly recommend it.
