Enjoy a hearty Down East welcome in our Holiday Inn® hotels in Portland, Maine. Explore this lively seaside city, and in no time you’ll be strolling the cobblestone streets of Old Port or savoring fresh lobster right off the boat.
Portland’s working waterfront hums with the industry of freight ships and fishing boats chugging in and out of Casco Bay. Feel the briny sea air from the top of the Portland Observatory, the last maritime signal station in the country and within easy access of our Portland hotels. Gaze out at rolling whitecaps on a tour around the Portland Head Light, an Edward Hopper painting come to life. The sea was a favorite subject of painter Winslow Homer, whose work hangs in the Portland Museum of Art, in the downtown Arts District and close to our hotels in Portland. Next door is the Children’s Museum of Maine, where children can role-play on the streets of a kid-scale town.
The Arts District downtown is a one-stop dining, shopping and nightlife hub and convenient to our hotels in Portland. The Old Port, the city’s 19th-century heart, is another dining and shopping neighborhood, where you can stroll pedestrian-friendly portside streets. International fare is everywhere, as are menus emphasizing local, seasonal foods. But turn any corner and you’ll come across some kind of seafood joint—from fish shack to fancy restaurant—serving fresh, meaty Maine lobster, sweet Maine shrimp and creamy New England chowder. Portland is a big microbrew town, so dive in and savor the locally made beer.
Book a stay at our Holiday Inn hotels in Portland, where the legendary lobstermen still ply the waters. Be a lobsterman for the day on a Lucky Catch lobster cruise, where you can haul in lobster traps or just sit back and admire the scenery.
With a magnificent view overlooking Casco Bay in Portland, Maine, the hotel's location is unbeatable. Within walking distance to Old Port, this waterfront property's view will take your breath away. On one side you have the enormous view of the Harbor and Islands in the distance. On the other side, the beautiful city and White Mountains in the background.
