Not wanting to travel to door County we decided to try Port Washington which is only 30 minutes from our home. Though it was not the best of weather we still had a great time and enjoyed the Presidential suite very much. It had nice views of the lake and the historic skyline. Within walking distance of eateries and a winery across the street. Staff was very good as was the Hotel service. Since this is a review of the Hotel I will not comment much about the restaurant except that most of the reviews I have read about it sum it up.
Went for the wife's birthday weekend check in was fast and easy they took us to the room gave us a tour explained how to work the fireplace,tub,and the tv. The room was clean very well kept after check inn went down to the restaurant for dinner. We have been going there for years the dinner is fabulous every time.
Two beautiful, warm November days spent in the Port Washington area with wonderful accommodations at the Port Hotel made our anniversary celebration perfect. The room was just as described and our early check in was met. We were pleasantly surprised by having our room upgraded. Decor is beautiful and the room was very clean.
We had a wonderful evening at the Port Hotel. The room was perfect for our one night stay which was a Sunday. However Port Washington shuts down on Sunday very early due to the season so restaurant selection was very limited. The hotel restaurant was ok and service was ok.
The one draw back is the fact there is no elevator and the stairs are steep so pack your suitcase light. Our room was very nice and had a very fancy Kohler shower in it which was quite refreshing. The beds were extremly comfortable. I don't know if it was just a fluke, but the night we stayed, around 4:45AM, several loud trucks came past the hotel and woke us up. We did not have dinner there, but the breakfast they provided in the morning was very good.
Our kids got us this stay as an anniversary gift as well as tickets to the PGA Championship. We had a great experience from the food, people and atmosphere. Due to unforeseen circumstances my husband needed medical care while on vacation and everyone at the Port Hotel went out of the way to accommodate me in a very hectic time. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and highly recommend it to anyone traveling through Port Washington, WI.
People make the difference! Sure it's clean, great amenities, really good food, comfortable, location is perfect, all of the things we expect. The staff, most especially Kate, OUTSTANDING! Just above and beyond any service anywhere!
Everything was beautiful, in room breakfast was great, but even though or confirmation sheet said the correct dates, they had us entered incorrectly, so we got there and they were not expecting us. I was just happy our room was available!
Having stayed in Port Washington a few times previously we wish we only had found this gem sooner. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home with a friendly manager who allowed us to check in early. The room was original, comfortable and perfectly designed with a huge whirlpool bath and the restaurants food downstairs. It is the perfect place to stay for the rooms, restaurant, location, and romantic relaxation
We stayed for one night in room 304. Spacious and clean, the room was great. We did not have a lake view, but with a fireplace and plenty of space to unwind this was a relaxing night after walking downtown and lakefront Port Washington for the day. We did not eat here, but this survey format forced a dining score.
My girlfriend and I ducked away from the north suburbs of Chicago to the Port Hotel here for a quick weekend getaway. We were quite happy with the hotel - the room was huge and well appointed (we stayed in 302), the staff were great, the view was lovely, everyone was exceedingly polite. And we just had a lovely lovely time. We ate dinner at the restaurant on-site. To be honest, my duck tasted a little dry, but everything else was delicious. We were stuffed by the end. And they're right across the street from Vines to Cellar, so we went there for a tasting and ended up buying 6 bottles of wine. Beyond that, it's about a block away from the downtown area, and easy access to the harbor, docks, and lighthouses. Honestly? The Port Washington nightlife felt a little lacking to us, but we may have just come too early in the season. And I will admit that that disappointed me quite a bit, because I'd love to come back to this hotel again. We probably will anyway. This was truly a lovely hotel and I highly recommend it.
We received a call prior to our arrival to let us know they needed to change our room (if it was ok with us) due to a part not coming in to repair the fireplace. They upgraded us to a larger suite on the second floor when she found out I had had major surgery just 5 weeks prior. Very thoughtful so I didn't have to do all of the steps up to the 3rd floor. Beautiful hotel with breakfast served in your room. Not all staff were friendly but the gentleman who brought us our breakfast was great.. So kind and thoughtful. Not a lot to do or shopping in town,
We had a lovely and quiet stay in this charming hotel! The room was beautiful and very clean, and we loved how close it was to everything in the surrounding town. We didn't eat at the hotel which is why the rating is lower (I would have not filled it out if the form would have allowed it), but I heard the food is delicious. Will come again!
Very enjoyable stay. We were welcomed & escorted to our room with all our questions answered before we even had to ask them. All the details of the lovely room were explained including the huge Kohler shower. We enjoyed brunch the next morning which was abundant, delicious & reasonably priced. We really enjoyed staying in such a historic, beautiful hotel & will definitely return in the future!
3rd floor view of sunrise, totally awesome. Quiet, clean, restful...just what was wanted. No pretense to providing locally grown food....but would have preferred this level of attention to health and well being. Go to Twisted Willow if this is your standard, 3 block walk. But for a clean room, comfy bed, and attentive service....well done Port Hotel!
Everyone We Encountered Was Friendly, Knowledgeable, And Accommodating. The Room Is Gorgeous And Made Me Feel Pampered! The Hotel Is Quiet And Private; We Felt Comfortable. Dining Is Also A Comfortable And Intimate Environment With Very Good Food, But Be Hungry! Its A Lot Of Food. :)
This was my second time staying at The Port Hotel. I came back because of how nice it had been the first time. The room I have chisen both times was #303. It is a very nice room on the 3rd floor, just be ready to climb the stairs with your bags and work up and appetite! The room is very comfy and pleasant and the morning room service is always very prompt! The first time I stayed here there was a larger selection of breakfast choices that were all included in the price of the room. This year the selection had been divided into 3 or 4 options included in the price, and the others for between roughly $8-$12 each. Although this change was somewhat disappointing I really could not complain about the stay and I will stay here in the future.
This hotel was well beyond our expectations. We don't usually stay at B&B type hotels, but took a chance. The hotel was extremely clean, updated, quiet and comfortable. The privacy was better than a traditional hotel and the staff were amazing. From the check-in process with Kate (started in her office and included a tour of the room) to the resteraunt hostess and dinning staff; everyone was precessional and pleasant. Would definitely stay again
I didn't arrive until late in the evening and I had to go to the bar to find someone in the building. I was treated very well and introduce to the hotel. The free in room continental breakfast (stuff French Toast) was very tasty. There were moderately priced options too. The room was very neat & clean and the décor was very nice. Overall, it was a very good experience and I will stay there again next year when I return to Port Washington.
The outside building is beautiful, and our room was nice and clean but little things bothered us. The website made it sound like a fabulous breakfast was included, but it really wasn't and we would have had to pay extra. There was no fan which made the room stuffy, and when the air kicked on it was super loud. The bathroom was large, but no table or vanity to put my things. Only one mirror in the room. The water haven shower was as wonderful as it sounds once you figure out how to work it.
Great location, room and service. It was a fantastic experience, the only down side was the breakfast bar in the morning. The coffee was not great, and there was not enough food for everyone- not many food options either. We also tried to go to the restaurant for brunch on Sunday morning (around 10), but the door for the restaurant was locked and after a couple of times trying to get in, since we hear people inside, we just went elsewhere.
