The room and accommodations were excellent. Nice location downtown. The only additions I would suggest is a deadbolt on the room door and a large TV.

A luxurious room with personality.

This historic hotel is right near downtown - perfect for attending events. The staff is flawless, the room elegant and immaculate. However, as a historic building, it does not have an elevator. Also probably not best for kids - more grownup fun. Great breakfast buffet.

Very nice hotel

The Port Hotel is situated among restaurants, shopping and tourism destinations in downtown Port Washington. Excellent location. Hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Rooms are gorgeous. Just had salmon at the restaurant and it was excellent. Quaint little bar downstairs that you can always look to for a friendly face.

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.
