The Best Portsmouth New Hampshire Hotels and Lodging

Portsmouth, NH is the last city before heading over the bridge into Maine from the south on I-95. This historic seaside town in New Hampshire is a delightful blend of waterfront restaurants, seaside parks, downtown hotels and inns, vibrant nightlife and shopping to explore before crossing over the mighty Piscataqua River to Maine.

While its small in population, just over 21,000, Portsmouth is bustling and interesting with a breathtaking harbor setting. Portsmouth has rich maritime history, visit Strawberry Banke museum or just walk the brick and cobblestone streets for a trip back in time. But Portsmouth is also progressive with exceptional dining, art, theatre and live music, and beautiful parks along the Piscataqua River and Atlantic Ocean.

Anyone vacationing in Southern Maine particularly Kittery and York, should be sure to check out Portsmouth at least for a day to enjoy the charm of this seacoast settlement and its beautifully preserved downtown. We suggest a harbor tour on a tugboat, browse the Bow Street shops and have lunch at a waterfront cafe with drinks on the deck overlooking the River.

Lodging options in Portsmouth range from historic bed and breakfasts in the heart of the Portsmouth’s waterfront area, to the gracious Wentworth by the Sea Marriott, to modern full service hotels in the center of downtown like the Residence, Sheraton, Hampton, and Hilton Garden Inn. Here, we also list lodgings in the surrounding Portsmouth area.
