How the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside stands out


My whole thing is finding a hotel that helps me become my best self.  It's true having a nice view can make all the difference - that's definitely the case here.  The harborside view is a simple thing to really uplift your spirit.  It's a great way to get in your best mood.

It’s true that I always look out for the indoor pools.  It’s just such a rush to jump in – really no matter the outside weather.

A harbor cruise can also get your into that good mood when you feel the breeze on your face.

Two-Fifty Market is a great place for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or to have a drink.  Sit a while and enjoy the food and view.

For a change of pace you can head to one of the nearby restaurants or breweries.

Then at the end of the day come back to your comfortable room, relax, and recharge.



I researched the fees for the top hotels in the area.  Fees here aren't everything I could want, but they are on the low end for downtown Portsmouth.

Parking fee of $30  per night, check for current rates.

Free Internet access.

No resort fee.

I never like fees.  And $30 per night for parking is a hunk of change any way you look at it.   Still, it's in line with parking rates downtown so there's only so much I can complain.

Getting free nights and no other fees does mean we're paying pennies on the dollar.  Ok.  Exhale.

Why it’s good with points

This downtown Portsmouth hotel has great harborside views from the lobby, bar, and restaurant.  Comfortable rooms make this a welcome retreat after a day enjoying area attractions and nearby restaurants.

This is the kind of place where you can get your great mood back for sure.  That's always my main purpose.

The highest demand nights include many Summer nights.  On these nights a King Room is 40,000 points per night.  Get a Marriott Bonvoy credit card with 75,000 sign-up bonus and spend $5,000 to get to 80,000 points.  That's enough for two nights.  And of course there are also many other nights for less points.

Get a 100,000 sign-up bonus and you'll get there faster.

This is one of those places where it does get really better to have a partner also get a 100,000 sign-up bonus.

All together with two 100,000 point sign-up that's 200,000 points.  That's enough for five nights.  Plus when you book a stay with four nights you'll get a fifth night free.  That's a six night stay from two credit cards.  That's a long stay and a lot of value.

Getting two cards with the 75,000 point sign-up bonus will combine to enough points to receive four nights plus the fifth night free.  So this sign-up bonus works out too.

Enjoy everything the hotel and area have to offer.  This is a great way to give yourself the space you need to recharge and bring your best mood back to life.

Get a Marriott Bonvoy credit card and get on your way.

Sapphire points are worth 1 Marriott Bonvoy point.  They give you a way to get even more Bonvoy points.

Once you get your sign up bonus with the Marriott Credit Card then get a Sapphire Preferred card.
