Rated 5 out of 5 by RanaG Great Location, Excellent staff!!!
We are a family of 4 and this was our 2nd time in 6 months back at the Sheraton Portsmouth. That right there say's a lot! We were greeted by Micah at the front desk and his knowledge and super personality were very welcoming! Our stay this time was in a Port of Call Suite and it was amazing. The amount of space of the rooms and the views were spectacular.
We will be back!!! Thank you!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jennifer68 Hotel was satisfactory
The hotel was nice, but I booked through Starwood and it did not thave the Starwood tag on the door, like the rooms across from me. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. We stepped downstairs to have breakfast and the food was fine, but the service was slow. We were also disappointed that the upstairs bar was never open on a Saturday afternoon/evening. I would still recommend this hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BarbaraNC Excellent stay at Sheraton, Portsmouth, NH
The Sheraton in Portsmouth was a very pleasant stay as a convenient gateway to explore, on foot, a charming city.
Spotless and beautifully decorated room with a beautiful sunrise view, kind staff and convenient location took every concern out of our stop on a long road trip.
The Club level and service (evening snack and morning breakfast) were superb.
We hope to return for a weekend retreat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Heintz32 Portsmouth -excellent
Great place, the staff was wonderful, especially Erin, the restuarant hostess. What would have made the place perfect would be spa facilities on the premises as many Starwood hotels have. Appointments can be arranged and an affiliated spa sends people, but nothing beats having it on-site for last minute needs. Also it charges for daily parking. But still no place in Portsmouth is better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JImB Restaraunt
The restaraunt is not open for lunch Saturday and also closed for lunch and dinner on Sunday. Although Portsmouth has many restaraunts nearby, there are times ( weather, health etc) that having an open restaraunt is important. Although room service is available, it is not the same and also stretches the staff. So travelers beware that the restaraunt is not always going to be available.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 6464 The hotel price point ($300/night) did not meet my expectations.
In-window HVAC, dated and noisy.
Room very small.
Top floor lounge food choices limited. Not indicative of restaurant offering, thus went off property to eat.
Parking off-site and gate operation spotty.
Pool under construction, no notification to booking guest of construction activity.
Overall, not a good deal for $300/night! If you like single ply toilet paper, stay here!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Aleeya Not Disappointed
I stayed at this hotel for a week during business travel. It was a little difficult to find the entrance having arrived on a drizzly night following a hard day of travel, but navigation once my bearings were established was pretty easy. Parking procedures were not clearly understood, though, and resulted in a bit of frustration. Valet and self-parking are both available but I suggest to stick with one option or the other for ease of billing and expense tracking, if required. A really nice touch in the name of conservation was an incentive ($5 food voucher) to decline daily housekeeping. The quaint downtown area packed with scrumptious food options and various boutiques was within easy walking distance and was exceptionally pedestrian-friendly. The number of rooms offering a notable view is limited, but overall I was pleased with my stay and would certainly consider another should my travels bring me near Portsmouth again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sr1Raters Positive response to serious multiple issues
Room highly unsatisfactory with multiple serious issues. Unable to resolve issues on day of arrival.
In AM Spoke to Sarah, Director of Guest Experience. Very responsive to issues we brought up. She explained hotel in process of major renovations.
Would definitely give the restaurant 5 stars plus. Delicious food - wonderful service
Would return - excellent area to visit

Rated 2 out of 5 by DPinVT Platinum disappointed
Interior of hotel was in need of update. Had requested to use my suite upgrade, instead got only the very small bedroom of what was a suite with the view of a rail yard! The air conditioner was very noisey and cycled every five minutes. Ice machine was right outside the door. The staff however was very pleasant. Not what I would expect for Patinum!

Rated 2 out of 5 by CloggedSink Sink clogged, back up in the middle of the night.
I was incredibly disappointed in my stay at the Sheraton Portsmouth. In the middle of the night, our bathroom sink backed up. The gentleman who came up to fix the sink was kind and thorough, but the staff was completely unsympathetic when informed of the problem the next morning. I was not given a refund or even an apology. I will never return to this hotel or another Sheraton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jakiemon1 another great vacation
after a great visit last year, we returned to this hotel and were not disappointed. the staff were great, the location is perfect and they even surprised us with sparkling wine and chocolate covered strawberries for our anniversary. we'll definitely be back next year. my only issue would be the noise from a prom event going on below our room, but it was fine after midnight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jimh A couple of problems
Great property, staff and food.
My only complaint is that eh baghroom sink didn't drain properly. Once it filled up it took a while for it to drain out. Initially, it ran fine but after a short time it filled and didn't drain with any speed at all.
Also, I thin your sheets and pillowcases are rough. Thread count needs to be upgraded or more softerner needed in laundering.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Unimpressed I'll stay somewhere else next time
I guess I expected more by paying more to stay on the Club Level. Arrived to find the room clean, yet small. Stocked mini bar didn't have the correct inventory, the bed angled downhill and was like laying on a mountain range. The television didn't work. I realize it's a hotel, but doors slammed all night long and any soundproofing seemed nonexistant. Not worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rjny GREAT hotel if you're traveling with a pet
The upholstery in my room was looking pretty worn and dirty, but other than that, no complaints. The big plus for me was dog-friendliness: No extra charge, great for walks, and the staff are terrific with pets. The restaurant hostess showed me where I could eat breakfast with the dog, and she even brought a piece of bacon as a treat. So nice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by cadillacmama This hotel has a good location
The staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was very small but was adequate for our stay. The location of the hotel was great as we could enjoy Portsmouth or drive in any direction and find interesting and charming places to explore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mike47 This hotel is eager to please.
Upon check in I asked if we were eligible for free upgrade. We were upgraded to the club floor where Christine went above and beyond to bring me some tea and ice cream as I wasn't feeling well.
At checkout we requested a wheelchair and after waiting 25 min. I called again. The host was very apologetic for forgetting about us and added 500 points to our account

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovetotravel2013 Very nice hotel
Location of this hotel coupled with the standard Sheraton services & value make this hotel top notch. However, the fitness center needs an upgrade - elliptical that I used had no sound with its video - only working TV seemed to be the overhead one. Also, the only floor mat was a gigantic one that if used would take up most of the available floor space in the room.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jcmlmm will not return
This was our first time staying at this hotel; we opted for club level..the room was very clean; however, one would expect that at club level the rooms would be excellent; however not the case here. The room was small, the sheer curtain is the only curtain that closes fully; the room darkening curtain does not close at all...not due to malfunctioning but due to design; the curtain tracks do not go in front of the window. Therefore, we were unable to keep the lights from shining in from outside nor keep the sun from shining in at dawn. The air conditioning unit was very noisy. We were unable to check out thru the TV option due to the remote control not working properly. When we advised the front desk clerk of the curtain issue , we received an obligatory "sorry". He also did not seem to know about the curtains...shouldn't he know about the curtains in the hotel?? Also, the 24 hour "store" was completely out of any kind of pain reliever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Senora534 Exploring Portsmouth
This was my first visit to Portsmouth, NH. I was not sure where to stay, but based on other reviews, I decided to take a chance with Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside. I was not disappointed. For first timers to this area, the entrance was a bit complicated to find. Upon my arrival, I was greeted by a very friendly bell hop who handled my bags with care and made some great recommendations of local spots to hit. I was very satisfied with the size and view of my room along with the location of the hotel. However, the leather headboards were a bit worn and could be replaced or reupholstered in a more durable material.Other than that, I would definitely come back for another stay at this hotel.
During my stay at the hotel, there was a wedding being conducted in the ballroom. Although, in times past at previously hotels I've stayed, this has proven to be a great distraction to the staff. I am very happy to say this was not the case!

The hotel shows sign of wear and tear. it is in need of cleaning and repair. there were cracks in the wall and the bed spreads were dirty. It does have a nice location in downtown Portsmouth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WeddingTraveler This hotel did not live up to expectations
Valet service needs improvement. Long waits for both coming in and going out. While waiting to park our car, we heard a crash of a car being driven to lower lot.
Heating/cooling unit in room was very noisy.
Other than that, inside service was great, friendly and prompt, and room accommodations were good

The Hotel charges $15 a day for self-parking but the parking lot is also available to the public. This week, the parking lot was completely full 2 out of 3 days I stayed there and took me 15 minutes of circling the parking lot to finally found a vacating spot. Not good, not good at all!

My husband and I took our two grand-daughters to The Music Hall and the Sheraton is a great location to stay. Friendly, helpful staff, very clean rooms and beautiful interior. The pool area definitely needs updating but the girls enjoyed it just the same. We have been before to enjoy The Music Hall and we will be back. Thanks for a most enjoyable stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MMNI On line view
The on line views of the area are deceiving as it make the area appear to be on the water when it is not. you are actually pulling into a shipping port like area. Put this aside and it is still a wonderful hotel. If you are looking to go the Kittery Maine outlets it is easy. The location is also close to area beaches on the Maine coast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Joanne828 Front Desk disappoints
Have enjoyed this Sheraton in the past but was disappointed by the front desk on two counts:
1.) Asked for an upgrade to a club level room which was not available. Wish they had offered me access to the club room -- even if there was a charge
2.) Charged me $10 for self parking. Returned home to find out that I could have saved $5 with my AAA card

Rated 4 out of 5 by ESofBoston Portsmouth area's best hotel
Probably the best hotel in the area.
As an SPG member I received top floor room.
Friendly staff, free coffee and a comfortable lounge and business area made hangoing out in the morning pleasant.
The only negative part of the stay was that noisy housekeepers and an ice machine located right next to our room really hindered napping and sleeping.

We just spent 4 nights, for the second October in a row at this Sheraton. This time we brought our two dogs, Donner and Prancer to this VERY pet friendly hotel. The dogs were made a fuss of any time we left or returned to the hotel. The staff really enjoys their visits. Portsmouth in general is very dog friendly and we walked them everywhere.
