If Portland, Maine had a star sign, it would definitely be a water one – the city cozies up to Casco Bay to the east and is bordered by the Fore River to the south. The woodlands and parks, meanwhile, are laced with brooks and dotted with fountains. If you want even more of the element in your life, book a hotel with a hot tub. Here are some of the best hotels with jacuzzis and hot tubs in Portland, Maine – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Hilton Garden Inn Portland Downtown Waterfront, for aquatic views

This Hilton Garden Inn is set on the waterfront in Portland’s Old Port district and some of the rooms look out over Casco Bay and Bug Light lighthouse in the distance. You’ll find the hotel hot tub in the fitness area. It sidles up to the heated lap pool, next door to the gym. Head here to refresh after a day of sightseeing before dropping by Port65, the hotel bar restaurant, for cocktails and classic Portland dishes such as lobster rolls.

2. Portland Regency Hotel & Spa, for hot tubs amid history

Of all the Portland hotels with a hot tub, the Portland Regency is one of the most historic. The hotel is located inside a red-brick armory building, which dates to 1895. The communal jacuzzi is in the spa, alongside saunas, vichy showers and steam rooms. If you don’t want to share, you can book into the Regency or Governor suites. The former comes with a two-person jacuzzi and the latter has a whirlpool bath.

3. Best Western Merry Manor Inn, for an extra-large hot tub

Just a 10-minute drive from the Old Port, the Merry Manor is a south Portland hotel with a hot tub. It’s not your standard tub, either. Measuring 16sqft (1.5sqm), this one is party-sized, and it comes with a massaging waterfall feature. Water babies will also appreciate the outdoor pool – it’s heated year-round and can be accessed from inside the hotel, so you can swim even when it snows.

4. Homewood Suites by Hilton Portland, for a spacious place to stay

Every room is a suite at this Portland hotel – all come with full kitchens and living spaces, and the largest sleep up to seven people. The hot tub is next to the indoor swimming pool. Take a dip there to wake up before tucking into a hot breakfast in the restaurant, where the menu includes make-your-own waffles. It’s enough to set you up for a day of exploring sights such as the Old Port, a 10-minute drive away.

5. Hampton Inn by Hilton Portland-Airport, for staying close to your flight

This is one of the Portland hotels with a hot tub that’s closest to the airport. The runway is a 10-minute drive away and the hotel runs a free shuttle service 24 hours a day. The hot tub is outside, next to the seasonal pool. There’s no restaurant, but the hotel puts on a hot breakfast every day and you can get to the eateries of Downtown Portland in just 15 minutes from the nearby MAX light rail station.

6. Portland Harbor Hotel, for a private whirlpool tub
