Transportation & Parking
Airport-to-Hotel-Shuttle: The hotel offers free shuttle service between the airport and the hotel (approx. 2.25 miles).
Airline Flights: Portland International Jetport has a list of airlines that fly there. There do not appear to be any direct flights from Europe or Asia so connections will need to be made through one of the major airports listed on that page. For those who like their information in a graphical format, there is this.
Taking The Bus: There is a bus service between Boston Logan airport and Portland. Concord Coach Lines (1-800-639-3317) has a non-stop (2 hr trip) express service with roughly hourly departures from Logan in the afternoon. The drop-off-point is approximately 4 miles from the hotel and will require a taxi (or similar) or sturdy shoes and a stong desire to get your steps for the day. Inquiries are being made to see if the hotel would be willing/able to provide a shuttle but there is currently nothing solid to report.
Driving from Boston: We are told that many people simply fly to Boston, rent a car and make the 110 mile, 2-hour drive up Interstate 95 (warning: partial toll road).
Hotel Parking: Parking at the hotel is (refreshingly) free.
