Hyatt Place Portland Maine – The Nightclubs Come Through Your Window

“Portland is a very vibrant city! For your convenience we have provided earplugs.”

I should have read beyond “The Quintessential Experience of New England” on the Hyatt Place Portland Old Port’s website to (emphasis added) “Guests would head our way even if we weren’t in the epicenter of Maine’s prestigious Downtown District.” On a summer Saturday  the night clubs across the street thumped until the wee hours and there was not a spare room in the house due to weddings, if there even are quiet rooms.

Sorrry you had such a bad experience! We stayed there twice over an extended trip on the coast of Maine this summer. I always ask for a quiet room. Our first stay included a Saturday night and we were at the back of the hotel with a blah view of the parking lot. Not troubled by noise. Our return trip , only mid-weeknights, we were on a high corner room with extended floor to ceiling glass extension with wonderful view of the harbor.

I was there over the weekend and the FD manager warned us at check-in about the loud noise at night and gave us a room at the back of the building. No views…but I rather sleep:). Traveling with kids can have its own advantages I guess!!
