Perfect weekend get-a-away

4.4 on September 28, 2016

My wife & I have stayed here twice in two years during our anniversary weekend. We have decided to make this establishment part of our annual celebration. I recommend the room with a fireplace. The amenities are first rate. The service is top notch. My only concern is with the food. It barely met my expectation. Everything was extremely over cooked. Port Washington has several eating establishments that are better. However,we won't let the food deter us, we have made our reservations for next year.

Fantastic Stay!

The Port Hotel in Port Republic is absolutely phenomenal. My wife and I enjoyed our five year anniversary at this romantic escape and we could not have been more delighted. The service provided was unlike any other, the breakfast was perfect (and tasted even better in bed!). The city of Port Washington also provided for a wonderful few days of entertainment.

Wonderful care from the manager. Took excellent care of our bikes, the room was really lovely and clean! There are a lot of stairs but she carried breakfast up and down without complaint. Really wonderful hospitality.

Port Washington getaway

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.
