Where to stay in Portsmouth

Look around the downtown area for historic hotels sitting alongside contemporary options, all with views of the harbor and bustling waterfront area. For something a little easier on the wallet, consider staying just outside the downtown area. Basic hotels have sprung up over to the west, in areas well connected to the downtown and the regional highways.
