Fodor's Review

Not part of a chain despite the "Regency" name, this brick building in the center of the Old Port served as Portland's armory in the late 19th century. It's mostly new inside, but a few architectural features remain, like the fireplace in the Twenty Milk Street restaurant. Sleek, modern suites on the fourth level have floor-to-ceiling windows, private balconies, sitting areas, and wet bars. All rooms have desks, flat-screen TVs, and terry robes. A big draw is the full-service spa with a beautiful blue-green tiled hot tub, saunas, steams rooms, lounges, and an array of massage and other treatments, including a bamboo body polish, an organic seaweed wrap, and even eyelash tinting!

Car damaged at the hotel valet parking

My car was severely damaged by the hotel valet employee. Since the hotel parking is VALET-ONLY and the guests are absolutely not allowed to park their car by themselves the person responsible for the damage MUST have been an employee of the hotel. Report was filled and photos were taken on the spot. Despite of all the hotel denied any responsibility and refused to compensate the cost of the repairs (around $2500 part which was a deductible I paid)

. I've ended up paying hundreds of dollars atop of the hotel bill for the room and parking (!!!), spoiled vacation, a week without a car and many stressful moments dealing with the situation.
