Birthday getaway

4.6 on April 18, 2016

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.

Great Getaway

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.

Anniversary get-away

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.

Nice weekend away

Our stay was very nice. The staff was great. The weather was even better. We will be staying at the Port Hotel again.

Wonderful Evening

4.6 on October 08, 2015

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 Port Hotel

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.

Great Experience!

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.

Totally exceeded expectations!

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!

Beautiful, but call for confirmation!

4.0 on June 10, 2015

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!

The Hidden Jem

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
